    Hi there.

    You need to make a liquid design, Using percentages instead of fixed widths.

    If you need any advice on how to change your site, post a link so we can have a look.

    Hi.

    I looked at the site (I am a counter-striker as well, btw, look out for [NcSA] clan ) in 800x600 and 1024x748 and it looks fine. Which res breaks it?

    You mentioned that the backgrounds start tiling, is this the main problem? As this is easily solved.

    For the background of the body, try getting rid of the background= tag, as this is depreciated. Use css instead. Heres a sample that goes in the <head> of your page -

    Code:
    <style type="text/css">
    body {
    background-image: url(badger.jpg);
    background-attachment: fixed;
    background-repeat: no-repeat;
    }
    </style>
    this will stop a background from repeating, try it.

    Any other problems? My GFX card wont go higher than 1024

    [RANT MODE]

    I know this isn't on topic with what you are asking, but I took a look at your website and the use of the graphics immediately jumped out at me. You are aware that those are other people's images and you go ahead and make them into your own site, even editing them. You make no reference to the fact that they are someone elses, of course most people could care less but I do some 3d work and A LOT of 2d design work and ripping peoples work is horrendous. Obviously the internet is huge and it's not likely that they'll see your site, but by no means does that make what you are doing right in any way shape or form. Screen shots are different from 3D renderings...of course they look good, but that is because someone put a lot of time and effort into them and I'm sure it wasn't so that people could just take them and use them for whatever purpose they desire to. I understand that if you really don't want things ripped then don't put them on the internet, that's an extreme way of thinking but sometimes I just can't let this slide. I've spent years developing the skills I now have and maybe you'll heed this advice or maybe you'll just pass it over like it's nothing but I feel like it had to be said.
