Screen Sizing

Due to players with larger monitors having an advantage to sparring/PVP and what not, I want to make a controlled screen size where the amount seen in a room is set and and the rest is just black.

At first, I just created 4 black boxes and stretched their width and height as needed. BUT you couldn't see the chat bar, and also it did have it's glitches..

Any ideas?!

Change the dimensions of GraalControl.

Awesome... Thank you.

Now I'm just having an issue with centering it.
I tried to set the x as screenwidth/2-(what ever I set width divided by 2)..
UNTIL I realized the screen width is the width of what you can see..and not the actual window.

So my next question is how do I find out what the size of the actual client's window is?

Graal Script Code:
//#CLIENTSIDE
function onCreated(){
 
player.chat //Window size width;

Graal Script Code:
 GraalControl.position = {screenwidth/2-100screenheight/2-100};
 
GraalControl.extent = {200200}; 
Why won't this work for centering?

After testing it seems screenwidth and screenheight only refer to GraalControl's width / height, I'm not aware of any variable that references window width / height. Once you know that, that method should work.

Here's an example.

e. says "owner has denied your access to the site." if I put the script on here.. o.O I feel loved T-T
Just going to attach it then.

e2. and just for overkill a circle version xP

GUIContainer is a parent control to GraalControl and should be the top-level container. It contains GraalControl, the task bar, and some other controls. So, you can just use GUIContainer.width/height when you must know the full window width/height.

Ah, no wonder it was returning NULL for me, I type GuiContainer, not GUIContainer.

Attached a simplified version..
(Still giving me that issue, so can't do php tags) :/
