Title changed at your request. :D

Also definitely support! Glad Edge was able to give some info on this, as someone who uses pretty big monitors myself this should be super exciting to see implemented!


Thanks for the title change and the support!

Rs in general is terrible in 4k, i usually go down to 1080p or 1440p for RS personally.
I agree that Runescape should be changed to fit larger resolutions, but i think it's more than just the login screen. I mean, could you really play with 4K interfaces? It's so tiny you can't see anything.


That's why I let Windows zoom in for 150%, that makes it better already. Stuff is bigger, but there's still lots of free space.
Interface scaling should help everythink I think, so whenever that comes out it should fix it all.

Yea i can't use Windows scaling, it's not supported in a lot of applications so text/interfaces just look weird. That being said i'd like to see an ingame interface scaling, Would be a better solution imo.

You can't use it? That's weird. It just acts like your monitor is smaller and then stretches the image back to the full size of the monitor. Windows does give a warning that some applications will only scale well after signing off from the pc and signing back in, and that fixes the apps that don't work along initially.

About that interface scaling, according to Mod Edge it is something they are working on, see my first post and his first post on page two. It will come eventually.
I keep this bumped so that jagex might impelement the other ideas here for a better login background as well (flames of Lloigh-Enn, the 3D background etc.) and that they don't forget to work on it since they said they are.

Applications need to support it tho, which a lot of applications dont.
The warning is for applications that supports it, but needs to be restarted before it will work, hence "Sign out and back in", can just restart the application.

As i said, some applications don't support it which is why i don't use it.

I had to copy the text and fiddle with the quote code because it was going past the 2000-character limit.

I haven't seen any application acting weird when zoomed in, can you give me some examples of what doesn't work and what exactly happens?

To make sure we are talking abou the same thing: if you click the cog icon in Windows 10 and see al the settings, click the first one (system), and go to the first group of settings about the screen (it should already be on that since it's the first), there's this second option about 'scale and layout'. This is the one where you can select from 100% - 350 %.
Is this the one you've tried to use?

Long live Microsoft! I do notice stuff is a bit more blurry, but that's quite OK, it's not that I can't read it anymore. I was stuck on a bad laptop for years so I was used to an fps below ten on very low quality, so in comparison, it's wonderful now!

Is it a possibility to add a dynamic background as a selection in the drop down menu? It doesn't have to be a video playing, if that's too big of a task, but rather movement of certain objects withing the background. I think it would be a good eye catcher. :D
