After upgrading to Pico-8 0.1.12C I noticed pixels were a bit blurry, even with the explicit option -pixel_perfect 1
Well, it seems the reason is not PICO-8 but a recent Windows 10 update. I have systemwide DPI set to 125 % and Windows therefore tries to scale the PICO-8 window a bit.
I fixed that by right clicking on the PICO-8 shortcut, settings, Compatibility, Button "Change High DPI-Setting".
In the following dialog turn on both checkboxes:
Unfortunately checkmarking both of these then overrides my settings of:
-width 702 -height 650 -draw_rect 10,5,682,640
And instead forces a new smaller window size I didn't choose.
Testing. Leaving "Override high DPI" turned off allows my window size to return.
It's interesting what you're doing here, pixelpunker, and likely will work well for others who haven't cobbled together a batch file of settings like I have.
Oh, that's my problem. You see I set the width for 702 and height of 650. But that's just perfect on this screen - and definitely not at all divisible by 128.
Yet I still get a very sharp picture here with my settings. Wanted to try your method to see if it would sharpen any more.
