Gpl, Win 10, And Native Resolution.

A little over a week ago, I reinstalled GPL after a few years of hiatus. Much to my delight, I found that it ran very well on Win 10 at my pc's native resolution of 1920 X 1080. Last Friday, I encountered some processor trouble that corrupted a raid array that I was using. I got that sorted, okay, doing away with the raid array. After reinstalling Windows, various programs, and drivers, I reinstalled GPL.This time it didn't offer native resolution as a choice. The closest was 1280 X 1024. Any res other than 640 X 480 showed the driving position as down and to the right. I went around and around, trying to discover what had changed to cause this. Finally, I came up with an answer. In Win settings/display/scale and layout, I had the setting at 125% to help with increasing the size of text. Resetting it to 100% returned the choice of my pc's native resolution. The driving position properly centered again. I hope this helps someone else with a similar problem.

Changing scaling can affect a variety of programs in strange ways (and since we rarely change it we forget it has been tweaked). I have a texture replacer for MS FlightSim in which the click spots were no longer on the buttons but displaced downwards and to the right; an AV program's main screen was so jumbled I couldn't use it; and printing from pdf produced weird spacings. All cleared up when I returned the scaling to default 100%. Great job Micro$oft.
