Execute screen size @ 200% [solved]

@7Soul
Exactly like that. I'm using a laptop with a small screen to build the game and when I test the game out, it's too small to see what's happening. Resizing the window deteriates the sprites. I need the it to zoom in to enlarge the layout or I'll have to enlarge the sprites manually. I have a lot of art, so I cringe at the thought.

@shinkan
Yes! You're a life saver! The pixel art looks great in your example. I like how you used the mouse to resize the screen from 2x to the actual size. That's clever. I'm guessing if I change the mouse function to System>Start & End>On start of layout then this will become the default size? Actually, I going to switch it up and make a keystroke change the size and let the player have that option.

Thank you!

Yes, mouse was only for showing. You can use keyboard, start of layout, variables - anything you want to change it.

Ok, I tested it out and it didin't work out too well. I typed in the exact same events and the sprites still look terrible. What image format did you use to create the ship in your example? Maybe that's the problem. Karzay2012-09-14 14:50:17

They are simple png

Did you change Sampling to Point for your project?
Default Sampling for new project is always Linear.

For a quick test.
In my project file try to swap my ship image to your image and see how it will look.

That fixed it. I did have it set to linear. It scales perfectly now. Thank you very much!
