Is this port biased to high resolutions?

Recommended Posts

640x480 looks blurry, it seems like I need to set it to 4:3 and at minimum 800x600 for it to not look too blurry, but it's clearly not pixel perfect / preserving the sharpness.

@Lila Feuer Yeah it doesn't automatically seem to preserve sharpness. To fix that (assuming you are using win 8/10), left click on the eternity.exe and go to properties. Then go to "compatibility" and click on "change high DPI settings". Then check "Override high DPI scaling behaviour. Scaling performed by : Application"

Doesn't seem to change anything, then again I'm using ZDL to manage and launch things for sanity. I tried that for ZDL.exe and it's the same.

I don't know if this will help, but I've had to do this for various games, and it doesn't seem to take effect in Windows 10 unless I use "Change settings for all users" and then change high DPI settings. For some reason, it doesn't seem to save the changes unless I do this.

I can always try again since I have Eternity on-hand, but I'm currently playing with Woof! and it actually uses integer scaling, with 320x200 no less which is amazing to see outside of DOSBox.

EE doesn't really do any manual. It's something I keep intending to do. I wanted to make sure it was done right and allow arbitrary scaling but at this stage I'm considering just allowing integer scaling initially and do arbitrary later. Anyway the scaling is just all done by SDL for fullscreen desktop, and I mean for fullscreen it's exclusive fullscreen so it's actively setting your monitor resolution. No windowed scaling.
