Marquee on custom cut LCD

Recommended Posts

Hi all.....just in the process of switching from Hyperspin (lack of progress into the world of HD did it!).  I bought Launchbox well over a year ago now I think not sure if I would ever use it but to support the scene (and I liked Jason's approach and respect his faith  :))

ANYHOO....I have a 32" 1920x1080 monitor resized to 1920x540 for my LCD marquee.  As far as my marquee display is concerned, it's still its native 16:9 self (when I got it, I fought for a while to get the OSD moved fully into the monitor) though it is technically only the top half of the screen.  Thus, anything on monitor 2 is centered and as such, I only see the top half of my marquees.

Is there a way to vertically offset the images displayed on monitor 2?  I never saw anything in the way of overcoming this from within the app or in the works? 

I am thinking I am going to have to batch Photoshop to resize the image and then resize the canvas top relative to get my screens displaying properly...but was hoping to not (not the most efficient way of doing things). 

Or maybe there is a solution out there that I haven't been successful in finding....always a possibility :)

 

Thanks.

I'm having this same issue - I've got a 21.5" monitor cut down to the top 1/3, so it's a 1920x360 display. I can see the top part of the marquee where the center of the display would have been.

I've tried using DisplayFusion to split the monitor since I already had it from another PC, and it works for some apps, but the marquee display still takes over the whole screen. Creating a custom resolution doesn't work either - the screen stretches it as if the rest of the screen were still there.

An option for setting the marquee display height would be really helpful, unless there's another program that can restrict Windows to just a portion of the monitor on a lower level than DisplayFusion.

This may be one of those things where there are too few people to warrant the change.  Anyhow...I wound up running my marquees through a batch in photoshop to change canvas size to 1920x1080 top relative so the images is on the top half thus appearing on the marquee monitor.  Works perfectly.

I found another thread where somebody suggested editing the theme files, and I got that working at least for CriticalZone.

CriticalZone v2 didn’t seem to have the same files to edit, so I’ll have to dig in there and see if I can find where the marquee window is defined.
