How much do we really need to spell it out for you?

This would've been done already if it were as easy as you think it is. There's a lot of really bad and old code that is making assumptions about the game that it shouldn't be, and that's what is holding this back.

But hey, if it's so easy for you, you're free to submit a PR.

I never said it would be easy. Delusionally putting words in my mouth doesn't prove your point any better and doesn't change the fact that this is a limiting factor/something that with a simple search shows many building WADs not still running a 486 would like a scaling option to fix unsightly black bars.

If you want a pleasant constructive conversation regarding the issue then you might want to add a little more then an ambiguous single sentence reply.

You're completely missing the point: You're not the only one who wants this, and if not for the presumptive way the graphic screens were coded this would've been done already.

You assume a lot. No point was missed. I was simply looking for further elaboration because you know, generic one sentence responses...

Either way, it looks like this has some traction now so I will be patient. My intent was only to bring this to the attention of those that can officially make changes, nothing more.

Cheers.

Has the newest GZDoom been updated with this fix?

Well, it's still sitting in Feature Suggestions with no [Added] or [No] tags on it, so probably it should be assumed not yet.

Maybe provide more clarification on how the workflow around here is done then. I wouldn't call 12 days (almost 2 weeks) "being impatient"...

A simple, "No we haven't got around to it yet" would suffice.

We're hardly a corporation with a rigidly defined structure of work shifts. The best I can offer you is a look at the commits log at Github; that's the easiest way to see what the currently active developers have been doing. At present, the most recent entries all appear to be related to localization and text.

No - we owe you nothing.

And boy you seem to have an intense interest in "correcting" me on every single one of my posts. It's actually kind of funny what must be going through your mind to be that laser focused on lil' ol' me, and how easy it is to trigger and upset you. :P And kind of pathetic. I bet you'll come up with some silly ridiculous excuse for this, too, or pathetically try to play it off like it's nothing, or at least find some way to frame it so that you're a poor sweet innocent little child who's just getting attacked by grumpy old me. And in the end, what would you really accomplish besides making a fool of yourself, just like everyone else who has tried the same routine did?

Back on topic, though - if you want the feature faster, learn some C++ and do it yourself.

If you're so impatient you can try and finish my work for me, here's the branch (on the first commit for it I added some comments on what's left to do). Otherwise, please keep waiting warmly. I maintain a lot of projects so my work isn't very fast.

I know you have some self fulfilling prophecy to make everything about you but quite honestly I could care less about a user name on the internet. I proposed a very long overdue addition which many people (not just myself) have been looking for which looked to have interest and then radio silence not long after. God forbid I should ask for an update on the status 12 days after the fact. What a poor miserable peasant I must be asking a simple question. There's no issue with patience on my end but rather your piss poor entitled attitude where you think no one else around here knows how to do javascript or some basic variant of C. Your knowledge on the subject is clearly a god given gift that should be held on the highest of pedestals.

Either way, If you would prefer that your clearly very precious and highly regarded time not be wasted with a question on the status of an update, then again I reaffirm my previous stance on clarifying the workflow process or better yet, if you would like a constructive conversation to which I would be willing to contribute to, heed the advice of not throwing stones from glass houses. If you give a smartass reply then you will receive one in return snowflake.
