MacBook Pro 15" Retina Settings for Storyline Use
Dec 15, 2012
Just wanted to share some insights into trying to get SL looking OK on the MBP Retina. I've been fighting settings since I got the laptop and think I have it looking OK for normal use. Though I have not started developing anything in it yet, it was just to have the ribbon and settings at some kind of readable size. So this is just a workable setting I have gotten to.
I installed Windows 7 on a Parallels 8 Virtual Machine. Here are some settings I think are working so far:
Parallels 8 Configuration:
Hardware Video Settings:
Video 3D Acceleration to DirectX9
Enable Vertical Sync
Resolution set to "Scaled"
Video Options Settings:
Full Screen "Keep Ratio"
Use MacOS X Full Screen "Off"
Coherence: Disable Windows Aero, Allow Full Screen, Crystal Mode "Off"
Windows 7 Settings:
I used the classic theme
Set Resolution for display to 1440 x 900
Display personalization to: Smaller 100%
Hope that helps anyone playing around with the same thing.
Now onto seeing how everything works on one machine!
