Title: Which HD-mod resolution do you play in most?
Post by: Serosis on July 13, 2018, 06:50:08 am
What I'm trying to find out is how many people are playing the various HD mods in 2x or whether 2x is even viable anymore.

Screens are only getting bigger in terms of resolution and 640x480 isn't exactly "HD". Neither is 1280x960 for that matter.
But maintenance for the UQM-HD project would be easier if one only had to worry about the resolutions people used the most often.

I obviously can't get rid of the original resolution, nor can I viably get rid of the highest. But 2x is a weak link in the code that I would be glad to get rid of if there isn't a demand for it.

You can either vote or tell me to stop f'ing with the code in a reply. Either way I'll be grateful for the feedback.

Now that scaling is much improved from where the HD mod was back when the first beta came out, the 2x I don't really believe is that much needed.

I think personally I'd prefer 640x480; 320x240 is really, really tiny. Do you really need to keep the 320x240 resolution?

Yes, because that is the original resolution that the game is built upon.

I'm talking about getting rid of the HD version of 640x480

Getting rid of this:

Not this:

All of the classic resolution scales will still be there.

I do not play with that first one you showed. I think I'm using the highest resolution option.

Ah, in that case I wouldn't have a problem with it; if I were playing in HD I'd want the larger resolution anyway.
