Hello!

Just to understand it clearly, is there any way to 2x-scale windowed games, such as the original Jumper?

I would just be happy with changing the size of the contents of the window, even though I know I there might be problems with the mouse mapping while doing so (which I really wouldn't mind).

Thanks in advance for any help.

Yours, twipley
I still haven't quite figured it out, but some of the changes in the next version will bring me a step closer as I now have a bit greater control over the mouse cursor.
Hello!

Let me reiterate that I am not wishing to use the mouse cursor for that game -- it is not a problem for me!

I have been trying to double-scale the original 'Jumper!' indeed, using the latest (i.e. 0.5.14) DXGL version, but to no avail. I just wanted to be sure I am not missing something.

thanks,
twipley

The reason I mentioned the mouse cursor is because it is just one step towards virtualizing a halved display resolution required to double up your game.

I am opened an enhancement request for this there: https://www.dxgl.info/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=59

Hello!

In the just-above link, you, William, had set the target milestone to v0.5.17 -- which is now out.

Having no access to a Windows machine right now, I was wondering if double-scaling in DXGL is now working with e.g. 'Jumper'?

Cheers!

EDIT: especially since the above link has not been working for me since the last couple weeks.

Sorry, things got a bit busy for me and I ended up releasing 0.5.17 with only minor changes. It is now slated for 0.5.18 once I finish getting overlays working.
