Mac Retina users needed

Post by Vadi » Wed Apr 24, 2013 12:55 am

Hi,

I'm working on getting Retina support in Mudlet working - at the moment, everything is blurry when Mudlet is used on an Retina monitor on a Mac due to Qt's lack of support. If there are any users who have access to such a screen, please post - I need testers to get this support going.

Thanks!

Just that it's working. Progress on this has stalled though; I'd have to redo my Mac VM and re-setup it for Qt5 compilation. On the plus side, Qt5 promises better retina support.

Okay - I've got the upcoming Mudlet 3.0 which is based on Qt 5.1 working in my vm now - and Qt 5.0 should have introduced Retina support. I'll PM you the file within a few days as it is not ready for public consumption yet or daily use.

Vadi got a Mudlet 3.0 build to me and I tested it on my Macbook 13" (Late 2013, Iris graphics) with Retina display.

So I already sent this to him and he said I should upload my screenshots here too.

Mudlet 3.0 Ingame : http://cl.ly/image/1S3g2O2v363r
Mudlet 3.0 Profile chooser: http://cl.ly/image/062c0729311R
Mudlet 3.0 Ingame text output : http://cl.ly/image/1r3R3r1G0k1L

Mudlet 2.1 Ingame: http://cl.ly/image/3U1i0t1N461m
Mudlet 2.1 Text vs Retina text: http://cl.ly/image/1z3R0Y2I0M1V

As you can see the icons seem slightly better but not perfect yet, but the text underneath them is great now.
The MUD banners in the profile chooser need work and the text output from the MUD itself is still not native Retina-like.

I recently got a new mac retina. If I can be helpful, probably easiest way to contact me is as Naftali on the Midkemia Online forums/in game messages.
