change text size?

Post by AutumnCheney »

i'm sure that this seems like a noob question, but is there any way i can change the text size with the print() function? i'm trying to work with larger screen sizes here and the default text size is too small

There are at least two ways :)

1. Change pixel density for the whole window:

Code: Select all

set_pixel_size( WINDOW_XSIZE / DESIRED_WIDTH )
resize( get_screen(), WINDOW_XSIZE, WINDOW_YSIZE )
2. Use transformation:

Code: Select all

$scale = 2
t_scale( $scale, $scale, $scale )
print( txt )
t_reset()

oh wow, i had no idea about the t_reset() function! i'm guessing you would use that to transform things individually in pixilang?

tysm!!
