#7470 closed feature request (wontfix)

Graphics: Add 1.5 scaler

Reported by: bluegr Owned by: sev-
Priority: normal Component: Graphics: Scalers

It would be nice to add a 1.5 scaler to the ScummVM, especially for 640x480 games. The reason is that 640x480 is too small for a window and the 2x scaler makes it too big (1280x960).

The 1.5 scaler converts the resolution to somewhat better numbers (960x720), which is not a proper fullscreen resolution, but it would be great for windowed mode

So, this scaler could be available only in windowed mode via Control-Alt-"+" and Control-Alt-"-" or another shortcut (e.g. Control-Alt-"s")

There are no decent 1.5x scalers. Only one which we are using produces crappy results because it is linear scaler, not smart one like AdvMame2x.

I don't think we can implement that.

Though there is a possibility of reviving on OpenGL backend, and some work is done by LordHoto. It will let you to resize window to any size.
