Emulator randomly converts hdpi display to mdpi

Postby Cameo24 » Thu Aug 05, 2010 7:57 am

Sometimes when I run a FWVGA or WVGA emulator it causes my app to run in compatibility mode (small inner rectangle instead of full screen). If I delete the emulator and recreate another one this usually solves the problem.

Here are some pictures of what I mean.

Does anyone else get this problem and is there a fix for it? I've asked around a lot but no concrete answers...
Thanks

The concrete answer is Emulators are poor attempts at 'emulating' and you can't beat a real device for testing. 100% Truth
