Custom Scaling Option
« on: September 26, 2017, 08:57:25 pm »
Think we could get a custom scaling option for Open Xcom?

Original resolution variations are fine but letterboxed. The ones mapped to Display 1/3, 1/2, and full are too small, although 1/3 is almost right for 1080p.

I'd really like a 1/4 display option for 1080p, but a better option may to have a Custom Scaling option in the geo and battle drop down menus that corresponds to a custom scale option using integer from the users config file. That way scaling is future proofed for 4k, 8k, and whatever else.

If you play fullscreen:
You don't have to use 1080p on your 1080p monitor... you can easily switch to 720p or 540p... and then use 1/3 or 1/2 scaling.

If you play in a window:
Well, just play in window, which doesn't take the whole screen (it's quite nice actually).
I have a 1920x1080 monitor, playing in a 1280x720 window, with 1/3 geoscape and 1/2 battlescape settings... works great.

Honestly this comes up often enough that I'm considering making it an option.
