Dashboard Size?

Ok, so I tried the instructions on the FAQ section, but I just can't seem to get it right. Is there anyone out there that has gotten the hScale and vScale that could post the settings as a baseline? Thanks.

1600x1200 on a 21" non-widescreen. I think I got it working a bit, got it on the lowest "scale" in settings for blizzard, but it still seems big, maybe I'm just crazy lol

The Bliz "Use UI Scale" does not change the size of the nUI dashboard at all... only the size of the Bliz frames... auction house, quest, etc. Give me a bit and I'll play with settings and give you a starting point for your hScale and vScale.

Sorry, I also played with the settings in nUI a bit too. It's still feeling big, but there's no black sides that are extra LOL I just kinda guessed and put a random number in hehehe.

Okay... the starting point for your scale should be something like this...

Code:
nUI_Options =
{
    scale = 1,
    hScale = 0.625,
    vScale = 0.6,
That will fit the UI across your screen and make the buttons square and the minimap round (or square as the case may be)... making hScale smaller will make the dashboard narrower. Making vScale smaller will make the dashboard shorter.
