I suspect most people who replied asking what lines you meant were looking for some sort of grid lines across the play area. The border of the window isn't all that important, and likely wasn't what they were looking at.

QFT.  I had the same "Uhh, is your monitor broken, I don't see any lines on the playfield" thing.  I didn't see the problem on the map because the screenshot is FRICKEN HUGE and I wasn't feeling like scrolling right if you weren't feeling like pruning your screenshots.

I mean you might think this is tremendously important, but to the rest of us, this issue has absolutely ZERO GRAVITAS.

How the hell did you guys not notice the lines when you first saw them? They look ugly as hell, I don't think I could even play DF with those lines everywhere like that.

Hmm...I've never been a big fan of CCGs - I mean, I did and still do collect Pokemon cards, but I never got heavily into the battling and trading thing.

By definition that makes you a fan since you still buy them.

Lines as lines, why do you think they're ugly? They're just lines. ;-)

Practice makes perfect.

For me, it's always been like that. They're just lines on a part of the screen that has nothing to do with gameplay, so I ignored them. Why would some lines in a non-gameplay area bother me?

Yeah, calling us all idiots will solve the problem. That'll make us *want* to help you. Great people skills.

Hi! You don't seem to have posted in this thread before. More to the point, you don't seem to have failed the test of "is there an obvious series of lines covering one screenshot and not the other?" Thus, I'm not sure why you'd assume I was calling YOU an idiot.

In fact, upon re-reading my post, I don't see the word "idiot" anywhere! I believe I said "these are the stupidest forums on the internet", which isn't directed at you or any one person.

And because I like to be helpful, even though you not deserve it, try changing your resolution. If that doesn't help, which it probably won't, you can also change the grid size in the ini.

Unfortunately, you failed the other test of "reading the actual post before posting a reply".   If you had successfully read the original post, you'd know that changing the settings does not work.

And short after that you can take a long walk of a short pier.

Unfortunately, the nearest pier to me is quite a long one. Thanks for trying, though.

Dude, shut up.

I lol'd.

Yeah asking for help and shortly thereafter being a complete jerk is not a great way to make friends. Who knows though, maybe he has social issues. I'm not one to judge, I generally dislike other people.

Bleh.

Anyways, I do see grid-lines too in the game area. Look carefully at the wagon, for example.  ???

If you can't bother to scroll a screenshot to the right, you probably shouldn't bother trying to help people in Q&A/help threads.

If you can't stop discussing an already solved matter, you probably shouldn't bother trying to help people in Q&A/help threads. :)
