Hello! I've noticed that in all the demo projects the screencapture is zoomed in a certain amount. Is there a way to disable this so what is captures is at 1:1, 100% scale?


If you are using a display with non-100% scaling, pixels are captured as-is (which can be seen on the screenshots taken with 1/2 in General demo), but GameMaker games follow display scale, so the window grows larger.

  • Manually flagging an application to not scale using Compatibility tab.
  • Scaling back the drawn surfaces to account for DPI scale (I think you’d need an extension for getting the display scale factor)
  • Marking the application as DPI-aware (most likely through manifest) - something to investigate.

Thanks so much for the quick reply! I'll definitely check these options out!
