I'm sure many of you have tried similar things out. I know I saw enVision play doom on a projector at uni or something.
Here I have a 32" HDTV (DVI > HDMI connector) with my standard 19" TFT in clone.

Im interested to see if anyone has tried anything similar?

I'd actually prefer small screen. The bigger the screen, the more you have to adjust your head to see everything, which is bad for FPS games. :)

that sounds like a wonderful idea.

Get the popcorn, hook up the old flat screen, and watch IDL in HD.

Theres my shameless plug, now give me my sponsorship money

Heh, I have no idea how you guys can withstand it. I once attempted this, and the view was just too pixelated. It made my eyes water after about 10 minutes.

I've had my PC hooked into my 42inch HD for a while now but I don't play doom2 in fullscreen ever. Feels too awkward. I usually keep it in a 800x600 window, but it's definitely a fun experience with some higher resolution games.

Question, does ZDaemon search out the supported resolutions of your video card or does it have set resolutions of its own?

Yeah, I played my Atari 2600 on my friend's 60". I wept too. What a glorious moment.
