Quick Question: What size screen is needed to get the whole FFB experience? I heard of people not being able to see chat and stuff. I'm shopping for a new device (2n1) and don't want to cheat myself.

I think the resolution is the issue.

You should be ok with anything really, unless it's like a $100 tablet or something.

No one plays more games than Bill and I'm pretty sure he uses some comically small screen Smile

You're actually right.

But how did you know? (who says 10.1 inches is small btw?)

It came up during a game when you mentioned how you do like 10 things at once when you play BB

OP: I believe you need 800 pixels of height, or a machine that allows you to scroll the desktop e.g. i used to play on a 600 pixel 10.1 inch netbook with a virtual screen size of 1200x800, meaning i could scroll up and down to see the whole game screen, including chat. Obviously it'd be nicer not having to scroll at all though.

If you do go for a 768 or 800 pixel screen, make sure you move or hide the taskbar before you launch the fumbbl app otherwise it will cut it off.

thanks for the clarity fellas.... if bill could do it with 10.1, im sure I could too (10.1 is actually the screen size of the 2n1).

Right on, just got some cheap 2n1 today (didn't realize you could buy them so cheap). $200, when I thought I was going to be spending 4+. Not too of the line by all means but really I just got it for Fumbbl, and it does that just fine, I will have to see if touch screen is viable for playing, but if not it came with a keyboard so no big deal. It's going to be great for speccing matches, rather than lugging around a cumbersome 15"+ laptop around.

You'd lug around a laptop specifically for speccing matches?

My $200 tiny notebook is 3 years old, and it works perfectly for Fumbbl.

"Lugging Around" as in around the house, outside and the likes.

When my notebook was new, the battery would last 6 hours. I've played games outside, in the bed, in the car, or about anywhere I could get Wi-Fi. Now my phone is a mobile hotspot, so the possibilities are limitless.

But in years past, I did do the whole 19" $2000 laptop. Now I go for convenience. I am looking forward to the time when I can play on my iPhone. I have a Bluetooth keyboard for it.
