The day has finally arrived. Resizable mode is here.
You can enable resizable mode in game by navigating to your options tab and selecting the resizable mode button.
Enabling resizable mode will immediately expand the game to fit the size of your client window, letting you see the Old School world like never before.
▼ Interface options
There are three different interface options when using resizable mode: background transparency, stone button style and chat box transparency.
It is also possible to hide your chat box and inventory by clicking on the currently selected tab.
As you'd likely expect, making your Old School window larger with resizable mode enabled will cause the game to use up more processing power. If you see a drop in frame rate your best bet is simply to make your client a little smaller.
It is worth noting that Old School does not use your graphics card. A powerful graphics card does not impact your FPS at all.
Future additions to resizable
There have been a number of requests for changes and additions to resizable since we have started showing it off. To name just a few, having the interface scale with your client, adding fog and anti-aliasing.
Our goal with the release of resizable mode was to get the basic functionality of making your game window bigger into Old School. This release can act as the foundation for future additions to resizable mode but for now we are sticking with the basics.
We will be keeping an eye out for any and all feedback so we can make changes and create additional features somewhere down the line. Do not hesitate to let us know what you think!
