Is it just a better resolution or can we actually fit more things in the screen now, then in Ace.

The resolution limitations of Ace was a minute issue as far as I'm concerned, but it was annoying that there were rather major limitation on how much you can fit on screen, in some cases.

For example if I were to remake my custom profile page of my char Gwaelin:

Gwaelin's Profile.jpg

The profile page basically uses every bit of the screen in Ace, in MV would I beable to expand upon this/fit more lets say text?

RMMV
Display area (on the Monitor), resolution (in DPI) and screensize (for example 640x480) are three different things, but they are mathematically connected and changing one will change one of the other.


Depending on which other to change, if you increase screen size (to 800x600 for example) you either get a higher resolution (DPI) with the same display, or fit more on the display with the same resolution.


Please check this for more on the misconceptions and misunderstandings of those terms:

I always know something was screwy about the terminology, that's why I always used the term viewing screen, when I'm talking about how much can be fit on screen, opposed to resolution, but that blog of yours still answered my question(if one really can't be increased, without increasing the other), so thanks.
