    Re: Best Estimation of Screen Length

    I took your base image HardRock and did a quick and dirty second pass on it for my own purposes, posting here with respect to your initial effort. Thanks.

    Oh, that's a handy picture. Unfortunately, my photo editing skills are really limited to say the least, so even something like that was out of the question for me.

    Odd that you can see 15 more yards north than you can south.

    That would be perspective in play, I believe.

    Since the view isn't actually top-down 100%, it makes sense like that. If they wanted the north and south view to be even yard-wise, they wouldn't be able to place your character in the center of the screen. Not sure which would have actually been better, though.

    Re: Best Estimation of Screen Length

    Here you go, guys.
    This is an album I made to show the measurements of Witch Doctor skills: http://imgur.com/a/jJdOs

    I used Soul Harvest as my main unit of measurement.

    All spells were cast in the center of the town, on top of the warp point.

    I've found that if playing on 16:9 1920x1080 resolution, the length of the screen is approximately 96 yards.

    The space from the center of the screen to the edge of the screen is approximately 48 yards.

    I didn't include it, but plain, unruned firebats extends approximately 24 yards.

    It's difficult to measure vertical distances because of the camera. Since the camera is isometric and not top-down, the horizontal measurements are all skewed. So, I tried to aim my spells only to the left and right.

    Please let me know if you have any questions.
