Default Re: GCA5 Beta Preview available now [FOURTH release out now!]

Letting you know it works fine in Windows 7.

Biggest issue I've run into is the font size not being scalable that I can tell. I have to basically set my resolution to "EXTREEM CLOSE-UP!" to see the words on the screen. (For ref: I use 1776x1000 normally, though the monitor can support 1920x1080; I need to drop the resolution to 1280x720 to be able to read it properly. I have the same issue with GCA4, but given how GCA4 was written back in the 1024x768 days it's understandable with the earlier version.)

I did expect it to work on Windows 7, but it's nice when folks confirm they had no issues. (Development of GCA5 started on Win7 years ago, but I haven't run Win7 in ages.)

I answered in Discord already, but for anyone who comes by later:

In the View menu, there is a Zoom option: pick Medium or Large, that should help you out. Once set, your windows will scale, so you may have to adjust sizing, but if you don't swap Zoom around, that shouldn't be a big issue.

I'm just impressed you managed to quote yourself with the text from the same post you're writing in.

Weird, that was supposed to be a quote of the post I was replying to, and I didn't notice the mistake. I'll fix it.

The Beta Preview is now closed.

Thanks to everyone who participated, your help is much appreciated.

The official release will be available from Warehouse 23 in the future.

Is there a timetable for the official release?

No, but I expect not too long. First I have to finish testing the latest build, to ensure that it seems to be working correctly. Then I have to build and test the Release installer. Then I turn that in to SJGames, and they have to build whatever they need to build for the store to make it available. And then push it out.

I haven't turned my installer in yet. I hope to do that this week. I expect I'm the slow part of this stretch.
