Description

This is something that has bothered me for a while. The only way to do this at all is to use auto-adjust window size which sets it to the size based on Internal Resolution.

Shouldn't there just be an option to set the windowed resolution of Dolphin? Without having to dig through the config file?

History

#1 Updated by JMC4789 over 7 years ago

Named it wrong, sorry. But yeah, there is no place in the UI to change this.

#3 Updated by tommyhl2.SS over 7 years ago

There used to be options like this a while ago, but it was deemed as not needed and was removed. I believe 3.0 has these options, so you can look at that build if you like.

#4 Updated by tommyhl2.SS over 7 years ago

Actually, it was r5000 that I was thinking of, not 3.0.

#5 Updated by MayImilae over 7 years ago

2.0 has the option. It was probably shed around the same time as Dolphin moved away from video plugins.

#6 Updated by tommyhl2.SS over 7 years ago

Nah, it was shed when neobrain said something like: "you can already resize your window to any size you want by manually dragging it, this option isn't needed.". :P

#7 Updated by NeoBrainX over 7 years ago

AFAIK the old window size option was misleading because it specified the actual window size instead of the client area, leading to blurred images due to image stretching when people blindly set the same window size as the output image (which is another tricky thing, because it's neither equal to the IR nor to the output resolution).

I.e. unless people knew what they're doing the option wouldn't do what they wanted it to do. There really is no advantage of manually specifying the window size over manually resizing it.

I do agree that some way to improve the window sizing though. The automatic window sizing should be more flexible than it is right now.

Looks like everyone is in agreement that something should be done here.

#9 Updated by delroth over 7 years ago

  • Milestone changed from Next to Current

4.0 was released, moving Milestone-Next to Milestone-Current.

#10 Updated by phire over 7 years ago

I assume the sizes we want are mostly whole multiples of the rendered screen.

Perhaps we can implement this as "Hold shift while resizing window to snap to common sizes"

Moving to next milestone since these issues are not critical to a new release.

If you feel strongly about this issue and want it to block the next Dolphin release, please assign yourself as owner and re-add Milestone-Current.

5.0 was released, moving Milestone-Next to Milestone-Current.
