  1. Force (Resolution Scaling / Under Scaling) on games / apps possible ?


    So I lately discovered that Japanese game makers adopted an amazing trend in their games that is sometimes referred to as Resolution Scaling and sometimes as Under Scaling , the trend copies from Anti-aliasing but inversely , so instead of rendering at double+ res then resizing to normal to smooth edges of rendered objects they rather render at half size then stretch to normal size adding a blur effect , this trend manages to boost frame rates significantly and yet give some reality touch to their games .

    Now I wonder if that thing can be forcefully / virtually achieved on other games using a trick or a tool , I am not sure if it is a directx / opengl native feature or a patented one of course but is worth considering by all developers .

    :)

  2. Is there a way to force DPI scaling?

    Hello,



    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.



    Let me answer your query regarding DPI scaling.



    Please be informed that you cannot force a DPI scaling on a particular app, right now there is no option to do that. If you have set a custom scaling level to 250% and if the app doesn’t support, to run the app, you have to disable
    dpi scaling for that particular app.



    You may follow the below steps and check.



    1. You may right-click the application’s shortcut and then click Properties.

    2. On the Compatibility tab, select “Disable Display Scaling on High DPI Settings” and then click OK.

    3. Now check if you can use the application.



    Hope the information helps. Do reply if you need further assistance.



    Thank you.

    Screen resolution scaling

    Hi.

    As both Windows and Linux user, I've been using screen scaling on Linux to be able to force (emulate?) a 1920x1080 resolution on my 1366x768 screen with the following command:

    xrandr --output LVDS --panning 1920x1080 --scale 1.406x1.406

    The 1080p output, as it seems, is done via GPU - as I don't see any impact performance on my computer. I can confirm that I have a 1080p resolution because even the screenshots are 1920x1080.

    So, is there any way to do the same thing, but on Windows? By the way, my screen's max resolution is 1366x768. I don't want to scale just some elements (text, icons) to make it look like a 1080p resolution. I want a 'real' 1080p
    resolution.

    Cheers.

  4. Force (Resolution Scaling / Under Scaling) on games / apps possible ?

    Is there a way to force DPI scaling?

    The native DPI scaling is already properly set. (Change the size of text, apps, and other items is already properly set to 250%.). Some applications, however, disobey this DPI setting. An application (ChemDraw) that I am using is "nominally" claiming to
    be HighDPIAware, when, in fact, the icons are not designed to behave well in high DPI screens (somewhat dishonestly). Is there a way to "force" DPI scaling of an application without changing the resolution of the screen?
