Different graphic options - window too small

I bought a new laptop with full hd display, now the creep-td-window is really small. already after one game, my eyes hurt :(.
I dont want to turn down my graphics every time i play ctd, so isnt it possible to create a option to turn down graphics or the possibility to scale the window??

Re: Different graphic options - window too small

I posted a similiar topic.
If in 1080p is hard to see i don´t even imagine how it will be on 1440p or even 2160p.
Btw the solution can be to use the windows magnifier.
Go to the windows start button > search magnifier ( or whatever in german ) and adjust you the zoom.
But this really needs to be fixed. Dcode you don´t need to put the game running native resolution you can put scaled resolution.

The magnifier didnt work for me! The resolution with the magnifier starts to get really bad, its no fun with that!

The post from xdxp is already about 4 month old, dcode please tell me its possible to do something on that problem!!!?

Re: Different graphic options - window too small

Is there any solution for this problem already? Is there a possibility that this problem will be fixed?

It is still very important for me. I really have no fun playing this game anymore because of this problem... :cry:

Please, somebody take this serious :/

Re: Different graphic options - window too small

"Change your display resolution" is a pretty poor workaround for this in 2014. First, before going into any depth about my suggestions, I want to make the extent of the problem more clear for people.

On my laptop, the entire CreepTD window is about 14.8cm (5.8in) across.

In fact, if you fold an A4 piece of paper in quarters, it covers up the entire playing field, leaving only the title bar and the chat entry screen. (With US sized "letter" paper folded in quarters, you see a 1/4" border of game window around all the edges).

Please try this yourself, and try to imagine playing the game in a window that size. (Or, if you're feeling generous, take a screenshot, and then resize it to match that on your own monitor, to get a feel for the size of the UI elements).

So, here are my suggestions.

Given that the game seems to use vector artwork for the creeps & towers (at least in some modes?), it seems tailor-made for scaling.

But, honestly, even if the graphics are all bitmaps, the game should support some sort of scaling, even if it's just bilinear scaling. Heck, I'd take nearest-neighbor.

For context, my laptop is an Acer TravelMate P645-MG, with a 14" 1920x1080 display. (157.35 PPI, 0.1614mm dot pitch, 24759 PPI²)

To contrast, the current Macbook Air 13.3" is 1440x900 (127.68 PPI, 0.1989mm dot pitch, 16302 PPI²)
Macbook Air 11.6" is 1266x768 (135.09 PPI, 0.188mm dot pitch, 18250 PPI²)

If we're talking a mac with a retina display at NATIVE, the situation is far crazier at 232 PPI, but with the pixel doubling, it's closer to 116 PPI. (I have no idea how CreepTD interacts with Retina, but I suppose it gets doubled).

Hey there!

We all and the Team in specific knows about the problem! But well we can't change it! The only person capable of changing this would be our developer dcode! But he is not working on CreepTD at the moment. Believe me! If there would be a chance to change anything, I would do it! My Display has 13.3'' and a resolution of 3200x1800..

Auflösung auf FHD runterstellen, hab ich auch so gemacht(nicht wegen CTD).
