Using the software on a Netbook

Unfortunately the software is not designed to be run on a Netbook as these have much smaller screen resolution settings. This version of HOWZAT (as stated on the min requirements) must be run at at least 1024 x 768 screen resolution.
Some of the very latest Netbooks can achieve this resolution however most are unable to be set to this size.

    Are you planning to do something about this issue in a forthcoming release. Not every body wants to lug a full sized laptop around with them and a net book is a very good option for a cricket coach.

    I have the same problem with this, which is bearable but slightly annoying.
    I too don’t want to lug around a large computer while planning sessions.

    I have to agree with Rob Ford here. Setting a minimum screen resolution of 1024 x 768 prevents the software from realistically being used on anything but a laptop or desktop, both of which are unsuitable for coaches who already have lots of equipment to carry. Surely 800 x 600 would have been a far better compromise, opening the software up for more users. I was planning on using the software on my netbook to give me the cutting edge when I begin coaching in Australia, but it looks like the only cutting taking place will off the top and bottom of the software on my screen.

      We are currently developing a version which will be suitable for use on a Netbook
