I am interested in using Nightshade as astronomy presentation software on a flat screen. I have used Starry Night and Stellarium, but I am really attracted by the flexibility of Nightshade's scripting capabilities.
The question is, can I configure the viewport to something that would fill a standard display? If I set "viewport = maximized" I get a square with a max dimension equal to the height of the display. Is there a way to configure Nightshade to make full use of a rectangular display? Perhaps in config.ini or distortion.dat? I am running it on Ubuntu 10.10.
Help pointing me in the right direction would be appreciated. Or if this is simply not something Nightshade is suited to, I would like to know that too.
