    I am attempting to create a powerful system for the client to control the zoom level of their game when played in a browser. This includes the game client resizing to the size of the browser, amongst other things.

    Scale Map to Game Size

    This is a plugin in development, while I work out if this is the best way to about it. Nonetheless at the moment it seems to work, thus consider this some kind of Alpha. Needless to say, not recommended for a live game yet.

    Description

    When combined with my Fit to Browser Window Plugin, this plugin makes the game map scale based on the size of the browser window.

    There are a few variables you can set, such as:

    - The basic size of the game window. The game scales based on this. So, if you set it as 640x480, then at this size the zoom level will be 1.0, but at 320x240 the zoom level will be 0.5, etc.

    - Maintain Aspect Ratio, which keeps the square tile shapes if set to true. Otherwise it will set the tile size based on the size of the game window (stretchiness). True recommended.

    Basically lets the player choose how big to play their game in. If done right they can even use F12 to play a browser game in full screen.

    Dependencies

    This is a complimentary plugin to Fit to Browser Window and doesn't make much sense without it:

    Further, it requires the plugin MBS - Map Zoom:

    You will need to setup the MBS - Map Zoom plugin with "Reset on Map Change" as false.

    Screenshots

    Default size set to 640x480, shown in various different browser windows.

            if (scale_y > scale_x) {
                scale_x = scale_y;
            } else {
                scale_y = scale_x;
            }
        }
        this._zoom = new PIXI.Point(scale_x, scale_y);
        AmyPond.gameMap_update.call(this);

    Demonstration #2: Zoom on Scroll

    Not packaged together nicely as a plugin yet, but the next thing I am testing is letting the player change the zoom level of their game using the scroll wheel.

    I think when I release this plugin it will be as a package together with others, as that is what makes sense for my game.

    Again not recommended for public use but hopefully this lends you some ideas.

    //=============================================================================
    // ScaleMapToGameResolution.js
    //=============================================================================
     /*:
     * @plugindesc v1
     * @author Amy

     * @desc Makes the game not go below this size. 0 = doesn't matter.
     * Default: 640
     * @default 640
     *
     * @param Default Height
     * @desc Makes the game not go below this size.  0 = doesn't matter.

     * @default 480
     *
     * @param Maintain Aspect Ratio
     * @desc If this is set the tile size will be kept square. Otherwise the map will resize based on both vertices.

    @TenTranVN It doesn't need a download. Copy it from the post - directly under the heading Script - Alpha. Make sure you scroll down the code to the end.

    With your experience with screen zoom, what is the text like?

    I'm losing thrusters with my DOM plugin, because even if I get it complete, I know it won't play at all with any other menu/message plugins because rewriting Window_Base... And I'm mostly doing it just to make the text scale prettier in full screen, which is starting to feel like a lost cause because I know people will want their menu/message plugins.

    If you have any good looking text on scale (pixel perfect for pixel fonts is the goal) I may scrap the DOM plugin and go at the scaling text angle.
