Bluap has provided the latest binaries. They include the high DPI work he has done, described here: http://www.eternal-l...showtopic=60911

He also added some of my Android client code that makes targeting small mobs easier, and should also help with bags covered by dead mobs.

Please download and test, and report any problems here.

If you download the Linux binary before the time of this post, you should download it again.  There was a crash when pressing F2 with sound on that has now been fixed.  Thus did not effect the windows binary.

Solved: downloaded 32 bit version not 64

 

 

 

I can't start the new client

 

./el.i686.linux.bin.static
./el.i686.linux.bin.static: error while loading shared libraries: libGL.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
 

uname -a
Linux linux-gkxb 4.14.3-1.ga731a45-default #1 SMP PREEMPT Thu Nov 30 09:05:48 UTC 2017 (a731a45) x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

 

Distri is: OpenSUSE Leap 42.3

Just downloaded the 64-bit linux client, and I also run OpenSuse leap 42.3.
No problem running the client, IF I start it with "padsp ./el.x86_64.linux.bin.static"
(otherwise no sound).
 
For me, the libGL.so.1 is located at /usr/X11R6/lib/ ("ldd ./el.x86_64.linux.bin.static"),
and part of the package "nvidia-glG04" (YAST2 search in file list)
(I'm using an NVidia GTX 1060 card, overkill for EL, but not for image treatment).
 
Note that there's also a libGL.so.1 in /usr/lib64, provided by Mesa-libGL1,
but that's a software implementation, which EL avoids.

 

But: finding the interface scaling control under the "fonts" tab surprised me a bit,

I expected it under Controls, HUD, video or graphics

@revi I'm not sure from what you say if the library paths is an issue; perhaps I'm missing something.  The ui scale option has moved about a bit during development.  I finally put it on the "Fonts" tab as it is less clutter but mostly because its where the other options are that effect the size of things.

 

Edit: The Ubuntu and Debian packages in the testing repos are ready now too.

Maybe consider renaming Fonts to Fonts/Sizing to help?

All UI items scaling well,

but i have problem with cursor.

Since i got laptop with 4K screen (lenovo T570) i have problem with cursor size (only in EL window)

It means, when i move cursor over EL window its geting smaller

for example cursor over windows desktop https://zapodaj.net/...409969.jpg.html

and cursor over EL window https://zapodaj.net/...e9f5d4.jpg.html

its no problem with system settings, in other aps scalling cursor (and other item) works well

 

any idea?

 

 

sry for my english  :)

karolus, that's a good point.  I didn't do anything to scale the cursor.  I'll take a look at doing that.  For interest, what scale setting are you using on a 4K screen? Thanks.

I know you have previously said that you do not have a mac to make a mac version, but have you (or anyone else) contacted Sir_Odie about compiling a mac version of this build? I would be very interested.

in OS settings I set 200% scale (3840x2160), unfortunately this seting dont change cursor size over EL window (in pure windows and other aps it works great)

btw, i have "small cursor" in oryginal EL client too, but i hope there is any solution not only habitiate it :)

 

this is "fresh laptop" so i have almost fresh windows with new Nvidia drivers (geforce 940MX), so i think its not OS/drivers problem but....... i think im not only with 4K screen and EL on board, i curious if other have similar problem

I have updated the Linux and windows builds with a new version that includes an option to make the mouse pointer bigger.  For now, this is an option on the "Fonts" tab next to the "UI Scaling" option.  It may be better to switch the size automatically depending the the "UI Scale" value.  Currently, the default value is the original pointer size, but you can double the value using the new option.  I did have larger scaling factors working on Linux but these did not work on Windows; I will continue to investigate why.  The method to scale the mouse pointer is crude but probably good enough for now; I just duplicate the pixels to the left.
