Another question. I much prefer the sharpness of the graphics in the LnL downloaded game compared to the Steam downloaded game. Is there any way I can download in Steam and then copy into my LnL directory?
As you can see both images taken at the highest map magnification. I did some measurements:
Counters, 6mm x 5mm in LnL; 8mm x 7mm in Steam. Control bar height, 5mm in LnL; 6mm in Steam. Force data box, 4.2cm x 9.5cm in LnL; 5.3cm by 11.8cm in Steam (Note the glitch in the LnL box, so not a completely fair comparison.) Control box, 4cm x 4cm in LnL; 5cm x 5cm in Steam.
I think the larger dimensions in the Steam version compared to the LnL version, in my view, contribute to the slighly fuzzy quality of the Steam graphics.
I use to get the very same effect when I run the original HTTR (max. resolution 1280 * 1024) on a monitor with a native resolution of 1920 * 1080. Many TFT-Displays don't fully support other resolutions than their native resolutions, so it looks like one of your game versions pulls a diff. resolution. Did you change the font scale for the resolution used for the LnL version, by chance?
The counters, the minimap and the force window in the Steam version are bigger than in the LnL version. EDIT: I wonder if your font scale is set to over 100% when running the LnL , so that the game can't fully display the text in the existing real estate (windows), which is noticable in the Force window. The text in the minimap seems to use a diff. font, so the engine has no problem to fit in the text/numbers, there. It just might deal with the diff. resolutions you seem to use, though.
I know Goodguy is trying to help, he always does (we go back a long way!). The shots you show look perfect! Not like mine. Tried actual screen resolution rather than automatic but doesn't make any difference. How do I check 100% Windows scaling? All my other graphics look good.
Sorted!! Thanks to all of you especially John, Dave and Gunnar. Scale and Layout had been set to 150% (don't understand how!). Setting to 100% and all looks good. Also sorts out the problems I reported with 5.1.28. One last puzzling thing, why if I had the wrong Scale and layout settings was 5.1.28 (LnL) displaying as if all was good apart from the Force data dialogue box? Huge thanks to everyone who contributed to this thread!
