What resolution do you play DF on?

Since DF needs a minimum of 80 tiles, it's quite important to know for authors of tilesets. Most tilesets use 16x16 sprites, but we have a couple 18x18, 24x24 and even 32x32 flying around.

Please vote to help future sprite development. :)

My 2 monitors are some the oldest parts in my PC. 

Since I do not care as much for AAA eye candy games, there was little need to get 1440p, so I stuck with 1080p (1920 x 1080). 
Still using a 21" and a 20". 

So I either use 32x (Meph/Vordak) and shrink to fit, or 16x (Phoebus) and zoom to fit.  I rarely find a native 24x graphics (found a Pheobus before 44.09; Nadrigal has 24x, and Gemset 24x) / tile set for DF. 

But I ordered a monitor, a 27" 2640? 1440p so I'll see more on the larger sized tilesets.

I do have a 4k monitor, it would be interesting to see a tileset designed for a full screen DF at that resolution, but its not like i'm holding my breath or anything

I have 2 monitors, so my usual setup is fullscreen on one monitor (2560x1440) with the second screen dedicated to netflix or youtube or the wiki for reference or streaming a podcast or something like that.

I've got a maybe 18" monitor from 10 years ago, so it's from before wide-screen was everywhere. It's probably 1280x whatever, but I haven't changed the resolution in long enough that I don't actually know anymore.

My monitor is 1920, but I like to play in windowed mode with other utilities (e.g., announcement log) on the side. That makes it around 1280, since I want DF kind of near the center of the screen.

On a 1280x1024 I tend to have a +50% number of tiles wide and twice the default (default sized/tileset) tiles tall, which I think is 120x50 tiles of whatevervanillais size themselves. It takes up much, but by no means all, of the screen and gives me space for background windows to peek past and/or thinner(/shorter) windows to sat 'docked" to the sides and top/bottom. Depending on what else I have open at the time, e.g. a notepad window with aides-memoire jottings-down.

Not that I'm in the market for high-res tilesets, personally, but as a reference-point anyway.

Sometimes I play at 1920x1080, but often I leave it windowed at 1600x900 just because it make reading the screen-wide, un-margined text in the profiles and descriptions easier.
