Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
My parents bought a 50" phillips plasma around July last summer. In that time, it's receieved a pretty substantial amount of use on their part, and having not seen the thing for three months, I came back home to find some wear on the image.
The 4:3 image ratio is now dully burnt into the screen. If you see a widescreen image with a single light color, like say, a shot of the sky, it can actually be pretty dramatic.
So I'm going to ask a fairly hopeless question. Is there anything that can be done to reverse the effect, or at the very least, stagger its progress? We've had the damn thing for less than 12 months, and at this rate, the screen will be a single brown blur before year three.
