I wanted to play some ABF today, and my ipad was down temporarily. Since I freely admit I’m addicted and didn’t want to wait, I grudgingly fired up a PC and launched ABF on the PC. The screen display was about the size of my laptop, say 17″ in dia. While grumbling to myself about it, I started looking around and I saw a button that LOOKED like it might change the window size. Having been disappointed many times before by PC-based software, I clicked on the button. SURPRISE! The game screen went max, and filled up my entire 27″ monitor!!! Not only can I see exactly what I need to, much better than on an iPad, but I can use a mouse to draw/aim.
I’m a large man. I have very large hands. When playing on the ipad, most of the time I can’t even see the bird or 2/3 of the sling when I’m drawing back, so anything less than full draw, which is required frequently for trick shots, is extremely difficult. On the PC, I can use a mouse and actually SEE WHAT I’M DOING!!! HOW DID I MISS THIS FOR SO LONG??!!
There is one major downside to this. Since I usually play AB in bed, horizontally, while winding down and getting ready to go to sleep, or to ‘wind up” by starting the day popping piggies before I have to get up, now I need to find a way to play the PC game in bed. I think I need about a 40’ mouse/keyboard cable to reach my PC. For the display, I wonder if the wife would mind if I put a 50″ TV on the ceiling.
Hmmmm. maybe I should wait until it’s warmer to ask the question. It’s too cold to sleep in the doghouse (and since we don’t have a dog, I’d have to curl up with the raccoons who come to visit).
