New Classic Skin Size
« on: March 25, 2021, 11:46:56 PM »
I am giving the Main Menu > Options > Double Size a try. I  like it, kinda. Would like to see a size half way between original and double. Will walk the plank here and go one further with a request for incremental options between original and double.

Additional scaling options for classic skins has been on my todo list for an age & is waiting for me to finish taking over all of the classic skin ui (i.e. dropping the winamp core) to achieve it.

thx Darren. Hope we both live long enough to see this realized. Myself? Well, I have been walkin' the planet long enough as to have been in a local band playing covers of Cream, Hendrix, Yardbirds when their music was current. I am a stone-age dinosaur, closer to The End than the Beginnings (heh heh, yeah - we played those tunes (Doors/CTA) also ... (hope you be much younger).

Classic Skin sizes available are 1x (too small) and 2x (too big). I request 1.5x (just right)

thank you, Goldilocks

Tbh 3x scaling is more likely to appear than 1.5x for the moment. The issue is that 1.5x scaling using the same way that 2x scaling is done (equivalent of nearest neighbour from what I can tell) looks awful for a lot of skins (making it blurry & loose colour definition) so it's going to need some experimenting to find a solution (or offer up a range of solutions & allow the user to choose) that work well for non integer scaling - an issue that also affects modern skins (which is probably a bilinear scale due to the time it was implemented).

I've merged the threads as the new details in my reply are helpful to keep (more for me) from some of the initial investigation work that had been done.
