Large monitor and rotate

Postby gusi » April 19th, 2018, 6:51 am

I am thinking about getting a 43" 4k monitor to view maps/games at a decent size.

However some games have a natural portrait lay out. Is it possible to rotate the whole game within vassal to landscape?

I could get a VESA swivel mount for the monitor but with such a large size I'll probably need a standup desk.

cheers

Not presently, but it will be possible in VASSAL 4.
