Hey all

I was tiped of today that the DPI Setting in Windows scales the classic client also so i set towards exploring it. And found that..

It Does Work!

Here is a quick run down, (guide was made in Windows 7, it might differ slightly for WinVista and alot for WinXP)

Step 1:

Right click desktop any where there isnt anything else. and select Screen resolution.

Step 2:
dpi2.jpg [ 31.34 KiB | Viewed 3040 times ]

Below display settings theres a link to make text larger or smaller, this is what affects the cc also other wise know as DPI.

If you want to use the default setting of 150% for all of windows you can skip step 3 and 4, and just select the 150% standard option.

NOTE: the 125% enhancement does not affect Classic Client in any way.

Need to Log off windows and back in to take effect!!

Step 3:

Select custom DPI. if you are still reading.

Step 4:
dpi4.jpg [ 23.55 KiB | Viewed 3040 times ]

134% is the limit to where Classic client becomes 1.5 times it's regular size. anything less and it will be normal size.

Hope the guide is useful for some :)
