Sorry, we are not adding more scalers at this time.

And the HQ4x scalers are particually bloaty, each one takes longer to compile than almost the rest of ScummVM put together!

So, seventeen years later, in the age of 4k displays and 8k gaming, is it the time for hq4x in ScummVM?

Now it should be the time for xBRZ or even nnedi3 which scales fonts very well, making books much easier to read, e.g. in Myst (checked it in Retroarch using ScummVM core)

No, we will not add that. First of all, after looking into it, the codebase bloat will be enormous for a very small fraction of users. The code is bigger than 2x and 3x _combined_.

Second, we would better concentrate on adding shader-based scalers for our OpenGL backend.
