I'm relatively new to DungeonCraft; but is it not possible to have most (or all) of the region/layout values in config.txt become optional by using a fixed percentage of the height & width values for all of them by default? So that by default most of it would line up where intended, regardless of a resolution change?
*Perhaps with alternate lists of percentages for different aspect ratios; defaults selected by inspecting the height & width aspect.
I'm not sure if you are saying "theoretically possible" or "currently possible".
Currently, all images sizes and placement are determined by pixel references.
The whole point of the config.txt is that the designer can create her own layout - we don't want to take that away from her. Paul and I are not the people to decide percentages and then put it into the hard code, that is pretty much the opposite of what we are tryiing to accomplish.
We want you to be able to do exactly what you want to do, which will likely be different from what other people want to do. We also want the other people to be able to do what they want to do.
There are only 3 screen resolutions, and DC doesn't support window resizing.
You might also be asking about graphics stretching, so that a border for the 640 layout would stretch to fit the border of the 1024 layout if you stuck it in a different design or changed your config settings. DC doesn't currently support that, with the exception of backdrop images.
I am thinking that maybe you were imagining config.txt could be like a style.css file? That actually seems really cool, but would require massive amounts of coding and recoding, and is beyond the scope of what Paul and I want to do with DC.
