Somehow, you guys fixed this in .03 beta, but hosed it in .07 beta.

Don't know how to get any more clear than the attached.

I actually work for a prominent game dev company and write software all day long. I think I know when you broke something.

Just go do a 'diff' on your source code repository between versions .03 and .07. (hope you guys tag your release branches)


I deleted original jpg as it was huge. Took image, scaled it down to make it easier to see, but kept everything in exactly the same proportions.

This is running on a 43" monitor at 3840 x 2160, with text scaled 200%. In .03 beta, the top bar (along with the production screen) appropriately scaled, along with the side bar. In .07 beta, the side bar still scales; however, the top bar is hosed again, along with some of the other previously fixed UIs.

I assume this screenshot is from 1.01.07 showing that the top bar is not scaled, but the right bar and unit detail screen are scaled, correct? That's what I would expect in 1.01.07 and in 1.01.03. Until the programmer returns on Monday, I can't say for sure what was in 1.01.03, but we did not plan or expect that 1.01.03 had the top bar linked to the in-game scaling system. It is something the programmer is going to work on when he returns. Can you post a screenshot for 1.01.03 that shows the top bar scaled larger? Did you have one of your High DPI settings checked in a different way for the exe? We know that the 1.01.03 was not built correctly as that was the cause of the MP problem that came up in 1.01.03. But I don't know how the fact that it was built incorrectly could have scaled something that required some work to get it to scale properly. This is a mystery to me.
