Laptops be damned, playing on three screens here. Now if you are able to fix the negative coordinates on window location I shall be a happy man!

That will be fixed in the C# version. It is a VB6 issue.

Just fired up a new computer. Main display is 3440 x 1440 and secondary is 2560 x 1440. This is not going to help the quest for laptop play :)

Just remember most common Laptop resolution now is 1366x768

Quick Update. I now have the VB6 IDE (and VB6 Aurora) working on Windows 10 after a lot of messing about, so I should be back working on C# shortly. Development has been on hold lately due to getting the new PC up and running, plus work/social commitments.

Nice. And that's another reason I really like this c# rewrite. I'm always worried that modern OS won't run Aurora and old games/programs in general :P

The first screenshot of the new Economics window. I've done quite a lot of work on the backend for this window but not much of the UI yet. Here is the summary tab - still a work in progress but enough to provide a good idea of the final version.

There are quite a few additional items of information, particularly in the new third column.

Also remember 20pixels is the taskbar and another dozen or so is the window title bar.   So USABLE height for windows is closer to 740 pixels.   All windows need to be able to be shrunk to this much on screen space.   Having them scrollable to display more is great.   But their on screen limit should support those numbers

The initial windows will be larger, probably around 1440x900. However, it will be a lot easier to create smaller alternative windows in C# than in VB6. My desktop (both monitors) is 6000x1440 so tiny windows would look very odd. I'll get the initial desktop version running first, then look at moving the controls around for smaller windows.

Scrollable windows would do the job and not require things like the reduced height windows,  I would imagine that to be less troublesome in C#

Scrollable views would work perfectly.    I dont care if i have to scroll.    Right now anything off screen is just outright inaccessible though.    And strangely enough the "Infinite Screen" utility seems to work on everything EXCEPT Aurora.    Aurora windows just stand still while everything else shifts.   

While not supporting such low resolution is an annoyance the game _IS_ outstanding in all other regards.   I dont want to sound too negative =-)

Sounds like you need to run infinite screen with admin privileges, that should fix it.

UAC is disabled so that shouldnt be an issue.  Will try it when I get a chance but thankfully for now I was given a friends damaged laptop and fixed it up.  Now got a screen that supports the reduced window height mode (but still not full size).   I can play properly at least.

I hear he will have time to resume work soon, or something.
