    Hello :)

    I have a follow up question:
    What do I work on to modify screen size? I am talking about the whole game screen with graphics and all. Would love to get a screen at 200% without blur, that would make my day!

    Maybe there is a script out there already? Cant find anything that is ok for commercial use... But I am patient I would learn to do it by myself, as long as I knew where to start.

    I would fill the rest of the screen with black... any pointers on that?

    Any help I would really appreciate it...this would actually allow me to keep working with RMXP. I just dont feel like I can release a commercial game with a screen that is very blurry or 640x480.

    @gui8312 Please don't hijack someone else's thread. I've moved this to a new topic for you, since it deserves its own one. I've also moved it to Script Requests.

    nothing can get the internal screen size beyond 640x480, because that is the limit of the closed-source dll that handles the graphics.

    to go beyond that externally needs a script that utilises the windows resize methods on the internal screen size. There are a few, but I don't have the links - search for zoom scripts.

    after that it's only mathematics - choose which size you want the zoom to go to, then divide that size by 2 or 3 or 4 or whatever full numbers to get the required internal size. Your target is a combination where the internal screen size is 640x480 or lower with a full multiply to get to your wanted fullsize pixel number.

    This is probably what you're looking for, but fair warning it's not simple to use nor is it "plug and play".

    @slimmmeiske2 sorry about that... honestly I didnt think it would be considered hijacking - I thought it was just a continued discussion... but now that I think of it more the original poster was not interested in the question anymore (was that it?)

    Thank you @Andar and @MobiusXVI :) I will look into writing a zoom script!
