Mac default scaling is incorrect on retina Macs

On Macs with high DPI screens, like MacBook Pros with retina monitors, the default scaling factor is a bit too small. The actual number of pixels on high DPI screens is 4x higher than normal, but it looks like Hypnospace Outlaw doesn't take that into effect and so the game window ends up being really small. The attached screenshot shows an example - notice how it's smaller than the text box I'm typing this in. :) Making it double the size by default on high DPI screens would be perfect.

Ahh wow, sorry about that! Could you go into the BIOS in the game and click "non-integer scaling" and see if that or any of the other settings there help out?

Don't actually need to do that to fix it! Resizing the window until it has enough room to jump up an integer scaling interval fixes it, and it will remember that scaling setting. I just think the default should be bigger than it is.

ahh I see! a shortcut for resizing the window is CTRL + or CTRL -. perhaps that'll make it easier to fiddle with?
