Was able to get full screen working using the good old Full Screen Exclusive Mode API, at first tried to accommodate the game to 640×480 but found out the dialogs for buying on stores and transferring equipment wouldn’t work in this resolution unless I invested some heavy work on them.
So in the end rolled back the work I had done for both compacting the UI and scaling the graphics layer manually… now using the original 1024×768 design for the DenziUI, with a small but important twist…
I duplicated the depth of the field of view, which I think makes the game look much better in my opinion!
Some upcoming interesting things (besides the already mentioned “macro” goals in the previous post):
- Enhance forests and mountains by using different graphics variations
- Pick forest/jungle type based on latitude
