Any ideas how to improve the game or the site.

Resizable Screen and Full Screen

Postby XxXAlphamaleXxX » Mon 28. Oct 2013, 18:27

Hello, Recently i was showing a friend prospector and when he couldn't alt enter for full screen I noticed that was something that largely bothered him, and it does kinda bug me too for some reason nearly every other game (Aside from all the Roguelikes) I have played has either the ability to adjust screen size to fill the screen or full screen mode, so I was curious if this is possible and if you ever have considered it, I mean I know windowed mode is pretty much a Roguelike thing but its always something I wished for prospector.

I think one of the difficulties of Prospector and roguelikes in general to be full screen is scaling the ASCII characters or the tileset.

I think it would be easy to implement a fullscreen blank background without actually scaling the game screen, but it would reduce visual clutter around the game too. Might satisfy most of the players too.

yeah I am not suggesting changing the actual game tile size, just being able to adjust the window size so it can fill the screen

Funny enough Windows XP can do fullscreen, Win7 can't. (Not sure about linux, haven't tried)
To make this issue a bit more normal I would have to switch to a different graphics library, which would be quite a bit of work.

Did anything happen with this? Is there not a mod or something which could allow fullscreen, even just with no window border and the rest of the screen in black? I note that it is possible to resize the tiles:

I'd really like to play this game on my 50" TV, but it's a plasma screen so I would get image retention from the window border and desktop icons etc if I tried it. But if there could be a borderless fullscreen version then that would be fantastic.

If you are using windows, just use the Magnifier. Search for "zoom" in the windows search bar.
