New Microgaming software - tabbed games, blurry vision

7 replies • Last post

Anyone else noticed the new Microgaming software recently? The size of the casino window is now bigger which is good if your monitor supports it, but it looks like they have gone and used the same old low-resolution graphics and just scaled them up and smoothed it. (think watching youtube on a big hdtv, only not that bad). The whole thing looks kind of blurry ... maybe they are trying to bring us the authentic beer goggles casino experience.

This screenshot is actual size, no compression:

They also added tabbed gaming so you can play multiple games at once. I still can't think of a single reason why I would want to do this but, there you go, its there if you can!

I've seen this at both All Jackpots and 32 Red btw, so the rest will probably follow suit soon if they haven't already.

GoWild has also implemented the tabs for multiple games.

I've heard a lot of player complaints about this "upgrade". From games running slower, to the blurry beer goggles vision, to the lobby being too large to fit on their monitor resolution... the list goes on.

The Casino Rewards group has refused to change their software so if you are looking for a Microgaming that has not "upgraded" then take a look at Golden Tiger, Blackjack Ballroom, Captain Cooks, or any of the others in that group.

The upgrade does not look blurry on my screens. I have two LCD monitors - one set at 1440 x 900 and the other at 1366 x 768. Both of them present the upgraded sites clearly. However when I change the display setting from 1366 x 760 to 800 x 600 then the lobby no longer fits the screen. At 1028 x 768...the lobby is not as clear and elongated. At 1280 x 768 the lobby is not elongated but is slighly blurry. Meanwhile 1366 x 760 also has a slight blurriness to it...however putting it back to 1366 x 768...it all becomes sharp again. If you find that the upgraded version's lobby is blurry try and change your display setting to the highest setting for your monitor - hopefully it will now look nice and sharp.

Hmm interesting I tried a few different resolutions and it always looks blurry to me. Hopefully they are working on fixing it.
