ABOUT THIS SOFTWARE
Free demo version allows you to use the “Auto” function - automatic selection of the integer scale factor for your game. The demo version is not limited in time.
Lossless Scaling scales any windowed game to fullscreen correctly without blur.
When you run the game fullscreen at a resolution less than the native display resolution, the graphics driver uses bilinear interpolation of the image resulting in blurring and loss of quality.
Lossless Scaling makes a game window borderless and scales it to fullscreen using integer multipliers. The output image maintains its original clarity and integrity. Additionally you can enable fullscreen anti-aliasing in the app even if the game has no such option.
Useful for scaling many old games that do not support modern screen resolutions or fullscreen mode, pixel art games, modern games, if you cannot run them at your native resolution and want to get rid of blur. Best use cases 720p, 1080p screens: Scaling old low resolution games
1440p screens: Scaling old low resolution games Scaling 2D games (3x480p, 2x720p) Scaling modern 3D games (2x720p)
2160p screens: Scaling old low resolution games Scaling 2D games (4x480p, 3x720p, 2x1080p) Scaling modern 3D games (2x1080p, 1.5x1440p)
