    Default Resolution in Skins info.ini?

    Hi all,

    can somebody help me to understand the info.ini of a skin file?
    I have a FullHD phone, sys.txt has an entries

    [rawdisplay]
    ..
    screen_xy="auto"
    highres=1
    ...

    I don't know what resolution is used and stretched to the phones resolution.
    Asuming the phone has a resolution x-y in horizontal (including or excluding status bar? How to determine?) mode and x1-y1 in vertical mode, what entries do I have to enter in info.ini of a skin? Which resolution do I need in ui_android of the skin?

    Thanks a lot for helping a newbie

    You ask ... but you don't said what is the name or the resolution of your device...

    In order to see skin, do the following:
    Download the scrrensize apk , it is free:
    Code:
    Please Login or Register to see the links
    then , run this apk and you take values (application window size) for your device:
    ΧΧΧ_ΥΥΥΥ for Portarait mode
    and
    ZZZZ_NNN for Landscape mode

    then open the info.ini file in skin using winrar 3.93
    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
    and write:
    supported_resolutions="1920_1080,.......600_1024,XXX_YYYY,ZZZZ_NNN"

    Delete the folder save, it is in the root of iGO - run iGO - select the skin...

    Hi zervdim,

    thank you very much for your very informative reply. My phone is a Nexus 5. I have the info in my profile, didn't recognize that it's not displayed in the forum, sorry.

    However, with your info you engaged me to investigate the iGo resolution stuff and it created more questions than answers for me.

    The app you mentioned gives me the following numbers: fullscreen = 1080x1776, 1794x1080, with statusbar 1080x1721, 1794x1025.

    1) Now I took a skin and entered only supported_resolutions="1080_1776,1794_1080,1080_1721,1794_1025" to the info.ini, but the skin is still not recognized. Do I still need things like 1920_1080... which I don't have?

    2) Confused by the above I checked the data.zip file and found ui_android/480_272, ui_android/800_480 and ui_android/1024_768 directories. By try&error (deleted single directories) I found, that the 800_480 directory is used on my device. But why is that directory used? multimode.ini says


    m1=400..480,196..320,"480_272"
    m2=234..320,400..480,"480_272"
    m3=800..960,400..600,"800_480"
    m4=480..600,700..960,"800_480"
    m5=1024..1280,552..800,"1024_768"
    m6=600..800,976..1280,"1024_768"

    so no info about the resolution of my device (max=1280 pixel). Why does it use the 800_480 directory?

    3) I also found directories config/junctionview/1024_768_Lanes; ./800_480_Lanes, ./1280_800_Lanes; ./480_320_Lanes; 960_600_Lanes which don't fit to that resolution. To test, I deleted all except the 800_480_Lanes and iGo seems to work. Is it OK to delete that directories to save space? It is not very important but very interesting for my to understand the software.

    Thanks for all your support helping me to bring some light into the dark

    I suggest you, do not delete what you like, because you can make huge trouble to your iGO software!
    Copy and keep the data.zip as you have download.
    Delete what you have written in info.ini and copy the following:

    supported_resolutions="1920_1080,1080_1920,1080_1845,1920_1005,1794_1005,1080_1701,1794_1080,1080_1776,1776_1080,1280_800,800_1280,1280_755,800_1235,1280_736,800_1205,1280_720,1280_703,800_1172,1280_674,720_1234,720_1280,1280_670,720_1230,1200_670,720_1134,960_540,540_960,960_502,540_922,888_540,540_888,854_480,480_854,480_762,800_442,480_800,800_480,800_448,480_768,800_435,800_440,480_755,480_760,800_432,480_752,740_440,480_710,1024_552,600_976,768_1184,1196_768,1280_752,800_1232,1280_755,1024_768,768_1024,1024_600,600_1024,1280_750,800_1230,800_444,480_764,800_425,480_745,1184_670,720_1184,1184_720,1196_720,1196_674,720_1138,1280_768,768_1280,768_1230,1280_718,720_1134,1196_670,720_1154,1204_670,720_1204,1204_720"

    It dosen't make any sense if you have all (or some of them) the resolution written inside info.ini of skins.

    Inside data.zip there are 3 Resolution: 480_272, 800_480, 1024_768
    Your device can work with the resolution 1024_768 and depending what you have in your sys.txt it can work and with 800_480 Resolution from data.zip
    I strongly recommened to you to use 1024_768.

    If it works with 1024_768 then you can delete the folder 480_272 and folder 800_480 from data.zip.
    I suggest you, do not delete lanes 960_600, 1280_720.
    Don't play with data.zip file, if you don't have space in your device you can buy a bigger SDcard.

    Forgot to mention, the modification in info.ini you must use winrar 3.93:

    Thanks again,

    the skin works now, even I don't understand why ;-)

    But: How do I force igo to use 1024x768? I tried the following:

    [rawdisplay]
    driver="gdi"
    ;screen_xy="auto"
    screen_xy="1024_768:1794x1025/1080x1721"
    highres=1

    and renamed the 480x272 and 800_480 folders in data.zip (to make sure iGo only finds the desired 1024_768), then igo complained ' User resolution [1080x1700] is not supported...'

    Thanks a again for clearing up things

    Try this in your sys.txt :
    driver="gdi"
    screen_xy="1024_768:1080x1721/1794x1025:fullscreen"
    highres=1


    or try this one:
    driver="gdi"
    screen_xy="1024_768:1920x1080/1080x1920:fullscreen"
    highres=1

    Sorry, doesn't work. Always the same problem that it complains about the not supported resolution at igo start. As said before, renamed the ui_android/480_272 and ui_android/800_480 folder to make sure, igo has to use the 1024x768 folder. Actually, I don't want to run igo in full screen. I prefer to see the status bar.

    Here's the output of 'Screen Size'

    After each modification in sys.txt , have you delete the folder save form the root of iGO?

    Furthermore, try the above that gave you before but take a look in your sys.txt if you have:
    fullscreen=1

    if you have in your sys.txt fullscreen=1, then make it:
    fullscreen=0

    Yes, I always delete the save folder.

    However, I loaded the unmodified data.zip back to the phone (including the 480_232 and 800_480 resolution), and now iGo runs with this entry:

    screen_xy="1024_768:1794x1025/1080x1721"

    But: Does it really use 1024x768 yet? I don't trust the system...


    I tried screen_xy="1024_767:... and igo also started.

    I deleted save, uncommented the screen_xy entries in sys.txt, deleted igos data in titanium and restarted igo and it started, even without any screen_xy settings.

    Really nobody any idea?

    I tried all different kinds of

    screen_xy="1024_768:1794x1025/1080x1721"

    with different resolutions the last days, but I could never get Igo to work when I deleted the ui_android/800_480 folder in data.zip to make sure it really uses the 1024x768 resolution. But: When I delete all screen_xy lines in sys.txt (save folder always deleted!) Igo still runs in 800x480 resolution.

    In the info of the latest version (Isr 8. Jan) google play hast the info 'Support for Nexus 5'. Does this mean NNG fixed the resolution of the Nexus to 800x480? How does it work, if somebody from Isreal buys the Israel version? Will he get a sys.txt? It can not be true, that the customer writes one...!?


    Thanks again for everything here, supporting us Noobs with information and data!
