Why not supporting multiple zoom levels? (1:2, 1:4, 2:1, 4:1, etc)

Aah scrolling would definitively be nice. By the way do you have plans to support more standard resolution ratios such as 4:3 and 16:9? Also Fire Emblem style graphics would definitively be nice. As long as it doesn't look too tiled and that the tiles blend with each others (although even NES style like Zelda II world map or Dragon Quest would work).

The artistic style the game has makes it impossible to prevent a tiled look. Although, it might even benefit from it.

Other resolutions are something I do want to figure out. It shouldn't be /too/ difficult, although there may be an issue with players with larger resolutions seeing more of the map.

I'm going to put something like that in where you can zoom out to see more of the battlefield. It's pretty simple to do in SFML.

Would it be possible to just scale graphics up for people playing on higher resolutions? It wouldn't necessarily look pretty but if the graphics remains pixelated in the first place I guess it wouldn't look as bad.


I could stretch the screen. Although it would look rather weird on 16:9 res screens. I'd rather just keep aspect ratio and let them see more on the screen.

You could always do like FPSes and modern strategy games do: Allow 16:9 users to see a wider part of the game, but still stretch graphics proportionally? It would still be unfair to 4:3 users, but considering it's 2014, if you are still using a 4:3 monitor then it's probably time for an upgrade (unless you mostly play old games)


I have 14:9. Supporting 16:9 would be unfair to me ! D:
Jk, you could add black bars tho.
