Pixel Perfect Scaling Mode 1.1.1
Galenmereth

Introduction
This plugins enables pixel-perfect scaling in RPG Maker MV and MZ, without any configuration. Optionally you can enable an in-game option menu addition so that your players can toggle it off or on. The label for this menu option is configurable.

By default when players scale the window or run the game in fullscreen with scaling on (F4), or run their OS in a scaled mode, the scaling blurs pixels in the entire scene, causing the effect of it looking "out of focus" as you can see in the "off" portion of the image below. This plugin remedies that. The caveat is there'll be no smoothing / blurring of fonts either, so it might not be suitable for every art style out there. But for chunky pixel art games, it makes a big difference.

Features
* Works in MV and MZ
* Default behavior requires no configuration - Just enable the plugin and you get the pixel scale mode
* Optionally you can also enable an in-game options menu with a customizable label so that your players can opt in or out of the new scale mode

How to Use
Put the script in your <ProjectFolder>/js/plugins folder, then select it in the editor's PluginManager. If you want to use the in-game menu, place it last in order of plugins for best compatibility.

Plugin Commands / Script Calls
There are no plugin commands or script calls

Demo
The script is very simple so I've opted not to include a demo, but if there's demand for it, I can add one :)

Changelog
1.1.1 - Fix scaling issue on sprites when using in-engine scaling by disabling Bitmap smoothing
1.1.0 - Initial public release

Wow thank you! I was always bothered about that feature of RPG Maker's games, but it feels great knowing there's someone out there willing to remedy that for the betterment of the engine. Awesomesauce!

Hello, for some reason it just remains the same, do I need other plugins for this to work? (I am using MV)

Looks like a plugin I could use, but since I moved to the UK, I use £ instead of $. Will this be a problem when I purchase it or does it automatically convert? This is my first time buying a plugin so I would like to know, thanks!

It seems to work for most people, but David Uchina seemed to have trouble getting it to work. Is there really a chance it won't work? If I'm going to buy something, no matter how cheap, there should be no issues like that.

asking this here instead of the thread in question to avoid derailing it, but I'm curious; is there a particular reason you'd include a "Terms of Use" for an RPG Maker game? Like, are there multiplayer features for the game you're working on?

I don't understand people sometime. Walking to work today came across someone walking the opposite way in a nice suit, I politely move to the side into the shrubbery so he doesn't have to get his suit dirty and say "good morning" as he passes me, he turns around glaring daggers and asks "why are you talking to me?" like he's bloody offended by me wishing him a good morning or something. Just, why?
