Display Maestro gives you full control over attached displays, allowing the usage of all available resolutions and bit depths. This is done by ignoring the operating system setting of hiding potentially unsafe resolutions.

It is ideal for running legacy games which require 256-color mode and do not automatically switch the screen depth for you. Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard removed the ability to set 256 color mode manually using the built-in preferences pane, but the feature is now available here in Display Maestro!

Display Maestro is a small application which can be configured to launch during login, and sits quietly in the menu bar. Upon exit, it will also automatically revert your display back to the resolution chosen before it was launched.


Release Notes:

Fixed issue with display names becoming corrupt.

Does What it Says - This is a great little app for anyone who wants to change the resolution of their display. There was a time when it was easy to go to your System Preferences and change the resolution but those days are now long gone. This app is easy to use and shows a great variety of options. I was having trouble hooking up a large display to my iMac and with Display Maestro showing me the possible resolutions along with some online research I came to realize that I was using the wrong sort of cable which was why my choices in resolution were so limited. Most people want their screen at maximum resolution and just want to keep it there. Display Maestro will help verify where your monitor is set and enable you to change it if desired. This is indispensable.

Review by Karoo Tlou

Not Updating the App Store Version - I have used Display M. for 3 or 4 years now and it has allowed me to fine tune both my Mac display and the epson projector it is attached to. Unfortunately, Koingo software has stopped updating the app store version and with the new update to 10.11.6, Display M. no longer opens. I went to the Koingo software site and see that there is a new version (in fact it looks like it has been updated 3 times on their website since the app store version is 2.0.5 and the Koingo site version is 2.0.8). Upon downloading the update - it works! The downside is that they don’t accept your license from the app store and want you to buy the app again. I used it as a trial for a while and everything was fine until the trial ran out. I sent 3 requests for support to their website and received 3 automated help tickets. In the month afterwards, not a single contact from them! I can’t wait any longer so I purchased another display resolution app which does everything that Display M. did, and they have replied to both of my inquiries within a few hours.
