Resolution Scale issues.

Postby Danfun64 » Mon Apr 15, 2019 4:29 pm

I have two issues with the Resolution Scale feature.

The first is if I'm at 1280x800 resolution, and I have the scale at 0.5, force aspect ratio 4:3, and forced ratio style stretch, I'd think that I'd be left with a pixel-perfect doubling of a 640x400 rendering, but I'm not. Even at Scaled (Nearest).

Which brings me to my second point. Setting Resolution Scale to something other than "Scaled (Linear)" and "Scaled (Nearest)" causes it to ignore forced ratio style stretch. Again, I'd like the ability to have a pixel perfect doubling of 640x400 in a 1280x800 window.

It's working fine for me.

Keep in mind there are a lot of things that affect the scaling.

Try the following commands:
Code: Select allExpand view
vid_setscale 640 400 0 0
vid_setsize 1280 800
vid_aspect 3

I didn't know those commands existed. Thank you!

Then again, if everything here can be done on the menu, maybe I just misjudge things. The fact that I'm dealing with 640x400 in 1280x800 rather than 320x200 in 1280x800 probably messed with my perception in an image editor.

From a menu perspective, the commands I described are equivalent of doing the following:

1) Going into the menu, selecting the 640x400 preset, and applying it as fullscreen.
2) Again in the same menu, selecting the 1280x800 preset, and applying that as a window
3) And finally, forcing the 4:3 aspect ratio.

What you are trying to do, while possible and supported, hasn't really been thought of as a use case. But that's the whole point of flexibility, isn't it? ;)
