Resolution problem with 1.14

Post by micro_geek »

Hello,
With wesnoth 1.14 the resolution is blocked on 1920x1080 (the resolution of my screen). But my eyesight is not very good and the texts are too smalls.
In window mode, changing the resolution to 1280x720 only changes the window size but not the resolution.
In full screen mode the change is disabled.

I'm on ubuntu 18.04 / mate.

Font scaling is a feature that's missing from Wesnoth. A couple of workarounds:

1. Try changing your screen-size, then running Wesnoth in fullscreen. The xrandr command can be used to do this, run Wesnoth, and then change the resolution back. HDMI-1 might not be the right output for your system, try xrandr --listactivemonitors to find out which outputs you have.

Code: Select all

xrandr --output HDMI-1 --mode 1280x720 && wesnoth --fullscreen ; xrandr --output HDMI-1 --preferred
2. If you're building from source, try changing the MAGIC_DPI_SCALE_NUMBER = 96 in src/video.cpp to a smaller number.

You can also try changing resolution directly in the video driver settings
