  • when 1920x1080 skin is scaled down...

    to 800x480 by defining show-height and width in general.ini file, how does it compare to the one with its actual size at 800x480 perfomance-wise?

    i was trying to resize all my pngs from 1920 to 800 then realize i have to scale down all the controls in skin editor as well which is pain in the ***... Easiest way would be just leave it as it is and modify the show dimension in general.ini. I was wondering if there's any downside in doing it that way compare to using 800x480 pngs... specifically performance-wise...

    You'll just use up a lot of extra memory for nothing.. It will take longer to load the images from disk as well, but that will vary to your computer specs.

        You may run-out of memory if your screenlimit setting is a high number.

            There was a tool/script back in the days that was meant to re-scale the images and .skin files automatically for you -- maybe worth searching for it.
