[Suggestion] Custom Font Size and Outline Color
« on: June 10, 2016, 02:46:22 pm »
Okay here is a suggestion from me after trying out the new Font layout on Dxtory.

First off, it looks neat i give it that, and i love that it shows all details you may want.

However, being picky i am going to complain on 2 things i am bothered about.

First:

The Size.

Currently you can just Scale it. I assume that's why it's already a fixed size and cause of this limitation there's only 2x 4x.
This should really be improved, cause for me it's basically too big in some cases, and even if i wanted bigger the scaling just looks bad (cause it's Scaled, not a new size).

So if it can be, i duno how Fonts works, but more like "Vector graphics" it would be awesome.
I'm sure other people know better how to explain this.

Second:

Outline Color.

This is something i noticed immediately cause the game i had was kinda Orangish where the Layout was, which is Orange when recording (yes you can change it).
And the cause of this is that, well the font just blends in with the background.
Yes you can change the Font Color, however problem with that is that it's still a static solution, if the background changes in the game, you are still screwed.

Hence Outline Color (or whatever it's called). You could simply have a black outline or something on the Font and it would solve that issue.
This is something i would very gladly want to see, and a clean one at that, preferably adjustable.
Nothing like "Shadow with blur effect etc" just a clean sharp outline, i think MSI Afterburner has this, but i might be wrong, just going from memory.

------------------

Thanks, if other people agree with this or have something to add, please do post!

I'd agree with both of these features.

Size x1 is too big still, and scaling it up just blurs it anyway I believe.

Outlines would be nice too.

wouldnt it be even better to have a custom size? something like a textbox where you put in the exact pixels you want it to be big? i dont know if its doable but it would be a perfect solution :D
