Not a bug at all, but is there a future plan to increase the rendering resolution? Fonts are really pixelated and ugly, especially on larger screens. Glad to see you back developing the project!

The resolution is dependent on your monitor, not the software. This is the first I've heard of pixelated fonts. Can you post a screenshot?

What are you referring to?

Possibly minimizing to the system tray?  Personally, I'm not a fan of that either, but, it's fine once I remember to look there for it.  Perhaps consider making that an option in settings? 

If I've highjacked the previous poster's comment by misinterpreting, then consider my post a separate request.  😉

And, thank you as always, Ross, for all of the amazing work you do for VATSIM! 

Cheers,

Would it be possible for vatspy to support UTF-8 (I think?) characters? So characters like ÆØÅ does not result in "�".

That's a matter of what the data feed uses for character encoding. I have been discussing this with the VATSIM devs to see what character set they use, so that I can use the same one in VAT-Spy.

yeah what robert said.. the way it minimizes to the system tray and you have to go in there and "restore" to bring it back up... not a huge thing once you know about it but its just a bit odd

Yes please, it would be fantastic if this could be an option, and not the default behavior. Right now, if you click on the minimize button, the window hides in the system tray, making it inaccessible on a second or third monitor. Having it minimize to the task bar, would be much more useful - or at least give us the option to chose!

One minor glitch that existed before:

When you press the "Retrieve METARs" button , the window that pops up looses focus after a sec...

So you start typing the focus is lost , you click again and most pf the times, it looses focus second time....Then it works... And i think that this is happening the first time you do it.

There are reports on windows 7 machines with he following error. Is this something that can be fixed?

 

Yes, I think I know what's causing that. I'll look into it when I get a chance.

That's most likely caused by moving your mouse after opening the metar window. Whenever you move your mouse over the app, it sends the focus to the main window so that the mouse wheel can be used to zoom the map or scroll the lists. I'll look into adding code to disable that feature when the metar window is open.

This is an example of how fonts show on this forum vs Vat-Spy. Monitor is @4k, 200% dpi.

 

It's probably the 200% scaling that's doing it. I see that the boundary lines look pixellated, too. If you set 100% scaling and reboot, does that fix it? I realize that's not a solution, since everything will be too small on your monitor, but I'm curious if it fixes it.

Hi @Ross Carlson,

I noticed in the beta 4 it's no longer possible to change the map fonts for staffed & unstaffed ATC.

You can open the font selection window, but after clicking on "apply" nothing happens.

Thanks, that'll be fixed in the next update.

I decided to just remove the minimize-to-tray functionality in 1.1.0-beta.5 which I just released. That was a common thing back when I first wrote VAT-Spy, but I don't really think it's valuable any more.

This should be fixed in 1.1.0-beta.5, which I just released. Please give it a try and let me know.
