Arkaos with Windows HiDPI laptop - tiny text!

Postby Ryan0751 » Sun Nov 13, 2016 1:47 pm

I just recently purchased a MS Surface Book, which of course has a really nice high resolution display.

I have Arkaos up and running on it, and it's working well, except it doesn't seem to support the HiDPI display properly. The text for things like the list of visual sources is really really teeny tiny.

Is there anyway to fix this?

I'm a bit surprised these issues still exist, these HiDPI displays have been around for a number of years now.

Creators update allows an option for this-
Right click on GrandVJ.exe [in programs(x86) folder], properties, compatibility, check ''override high DPI scaling behaviour''.
This will work for any application that doesn't support high res or 200%DPI font settings.
Saves constantly changing desktop resolutions.
