Re: DPI Upscaling 200% From 1080 to 4k No Longer Works After Update
 
It's possible that Java 8 (installed on your machine and used by the Ice install) is handling things differently than Java 6 (provided with the Steam client). You can also check in the Options panel of the Ice client to verify that Java 1.8.0_121 is actually being used, or if there's a different version on your machine that's being referenced.

I've gone ahead and added the new checkbox to the main Puzzle Pirates client, so you can try it out there to see if it allows you to upscale your Steam client like you were before. Sorry for the hassle, I'm not sure what prevented the default upscaling from working on your machine.


I checked Ice's client and it is using the 1.8.0_121 Java version.
In comparison, the Steam version is using 1.6.0_25

Thanks for uploading it to the Steam version. I've updated the Steam version and checked the DPI aware setting. A noticeable difference with this box checked is that the client window will no longer upscale through Window 10's 200%, when "disable DPI scaling" is unchecked on the Steam installation's "javaw". It will only upscale when compatibility mode for Windows XP is set, but will display the blank white screen with that compatibility set.

I've also tried running the game client with it's game settings at 4k resolution with the DPI scaling box checked, and with javaw set to disable DPI scaling, but the small UI/puzzles persists.

Well, I've actually tried a number of configurations, listed below:

Of note is that the fullscreen option is disabled, normally I run in windowed mode.

------
Game at 1080 resolution + DPI aware enabled, javaw with "disable DPI scaling" unchecked & run as admin:

1) javaw no compatibility ---> working client but at 1080 resolution
