CS2: How to create EPS with output bigger than 800 ? - Adobe Illustrator Windows

I need to prepare files with output resolution 2540. I tried to do this in several ways but without success :( . In AI9 there is an attributes menu that allows you to set your own resolution. In the versions after Illustrator 9 this option is not available. Can anyone help me to solve this problem in CS2?...

    Default How to create EPS with output bigger than 800 ?

    >>I need to prepare files with output resolution 2540.<<

    I'm sure you don't. The output resolution only refers to rastererized items
    (and the required resolution for those depends upon the linescreen, not the
    image setter dpi).

    Non-rasterized items will be output at the maximum resolution of the output
    device, as vectors are resolution independent.

    It's not exactly the true.
    AI9 HELP: "Curves in artwork are defined by the PostScript interpreter as small line segments; and the smaller the line segments, the more accurate the curve. However, when small line segments are used to draw a curve, the total number of line segments increases, thereby increasing the complexity of the curve. If a curve is too complex for a PostScript interpreter to rasterize, a PostScript error can result, and the curve won't print.

    The output resolution determines the flatness of the curve: A lower output resolution results in greater flatness, and thus longer and fewer line segments. Using a lower output resolution creates a less accurate curve, but improves printing performance."

    I found Russian script that can fix this problem. Here is the script:

    if (doents.length > 0) {
    var finishMessage = new String();
    var docResolution = 2540
    var iCounter = 0;
    var lockedCounter = 0;
    var curPath;
    for ( index = 0 ; index < activeDoent.pathItems.length ; index++ ) { curPath=activeDoent.pathItems[index] if ( (curPath.resolution != docResolution) ) { if ( ! (curPath.layer.locked || curPath.locked) ) { curPath.resolution = docResolution; iCounter++; } else { lockedCounter++; } } } finishMessage = 'Doent output resolution is ' + docResolution + ' dpi' + '\r\n' + 'Resolution of '+ iCounter + ' paths was changed' if (lockedCounter > 0) {
    finishMessage += '\r\n' + lockedCounter + ' locked objects not changed.'
    }
    alert(finishMessage);
    }
    else {
    alert('No opened doent!');
    }

    In "var docResolution = 2540" specify your own resolution.

    The Graphics pane of the Print dialog contains the Flatness slider, which controls the same thing as the Doent Output Resolution in earlier versions.

    An output resolution of 800 translates to a flatness of 3 on a 2400 spi printer. As I understand it, this means that a "curve" is allowed to deviate from the true mathematical curve by three of the actual spots which the imaging device can address. That is, a long subtle curve is allowed to "flatten" into straight facets enough so as to result in the middle of the facets deviating a mere three printer spots (3/2400ths of an inch) from the "hump" of the true curve.

    I'm not sure whether this is still as potentially problematic on newer devices as it has historically been, but I don't think it advisable to set the flatness value to zero, which is what you would be doing if you set the Doent Resolution to 2450 on a 2450 spi device.
