Picked the game back up after many years.... Using 1.13 / JA2_7618

So im playing on a 4k 55" screen (awesome believe me)

I have the ini set to 1920x1080

but no matter what "resolution" i try its just too small, i find myself straining a bit to see words and textures.

Without blowing up the entire game to full screen (a bit ridiculous and makes doing side work hard) is there anyway to zoom in the game so its a bit more readable?

JA2 assets are 2D bitmaps, not 3d scaleable assets. That means you can show more of the map, for example (BigMaps project), but when it comes to zooming in... you gonna see a lot of pixels fast.

You can teach an old dog some tricks, but scaleable graphics would be wanting it to do backflips and sing like Pavarotti.

This is the actual ratio between 1920x1080 and the actual JA2 graphics. Quite a "stretch", no?

Might, but that's still work in progress.
