    I grabbed the latest copy of the supercard sd software from their website but seem to be going nowhere fast with it.

    On my WinXP machine I get this

    Yes that is the complete view of the application. needless to say it makes it difficult to click the add button.

    It seems as if you’re some how zoomed in. Your also missing your restart &
    Patch in the upper tabs. What resolution is your PC in? 640x480? Try upping
    your Desktop resolution to something like 1024x768.

    Good attempt, but the rest of the desktop just isn't in the shot, I'm running 1680x1050.

    have you increased any default windows font sizes? i'm guessing the supercard software wasn't designed to handle fonts larger than normal, probably that's causing the game list to be much larger than it should be and bump the buttons off the end.

    edit: you can actually resize the supercard window, at least in the version I'm using (2.541 CF)

    Right click on the middle area and a menu should come up.
    - Add roms
    - Del roms
    - Properties


    If not try downgrading?

    I think I know what is wrong. Common problem I used to see with old people and computers when I worked tech support.

    Right click your desktop, click properties in the menu. That should bring up the 'Display Properties' dialog. Click on the 'Settings' tab, and then click the 'Advanced' button towards the bottom of that section. That should bring up the monitor and graphics card properties dialog. Under the 'General' tab, in the 'Display' section, look and see what DPI you are set to. I am betting that you are set to something above 96, probably around 120. If you set it back down to 'Normal (96 DPI), it should correct your problem.

    If that doesn't help, I don't really care. I do not work in tech support anymore. [​IMG]

    Good luck.

    Most likely the font size setting. I have the same problem and just thought of the solution, but not at my computer to test. Above poster should be correct in just changing the font size down to normal, which is a pain but worth it.
