ReScale - a HiDPI helper

nicegamer7 » January 24th, 2019, 9:25 pm

Hi everybody, I made a plugin.

This plugin will return the monitors scale factor and disable windows scaling.

What does that mean, you might ask? On HiDPI displays, windows will scale everything to become larger, including Rainmeter. The issue is Rainmeter has already rendered the skins, then the scaling happens, which causes blurriness. Using this plugin will allow scaling to happen before rendering, meaning crisp text and graphics.

Bugs:
- Doesn't work with refreshing (fixed)
- Kind of a bug, but no skins support this, so they'll all become tiny

I've attached a sample skin showing how it's used.

Thanks! I was looking for something like this. Definitely necessary for high resolution monitors.

I finally got the chance to try this out. It doesn't seem to be working. Remains at Scale: 1 regardless of the Windows DPI setting.

Edit: I was able to get this to change, but only after changing the DPI compatibility settings for the Rainmeter shortcut. Is this the intended functionality?
