Default Advice for using the Prime95 interface

I have the latest version 30.8 build 15 , but for me the fonts don't not seem to be displaying properly. Barely perceptable (see image)


Look worse in real time.


Any suggestions


thanks

Not sure what the problem is at your end; all looks quite readable in your attachment. Below "Custom" is mostly grayed out because "Blend" is selected, which makes contrast low.
Maybe your display resolution is not set to the native hardware resolution, but some odd ratio off of it?

Looks like you are running a high-resolution screen (over 1920*1080) and Windows is doing its usual mediocre job of scaling fonts for high resolution/high DPI screens. Tinkering with Windows scaling options may help.

True. You have some fonts missing and windoze can't scale properly, so she is doing bitmap scaling.

My screen resolution is 1920x1080. Verified in "Intel Graphic settings".

My custom scaling is 156%.

Are we saying that I must change my scaling to get Prime95 to display properly?

Prime95 is the only programs that I'm having this problem with.

Which fonts are missing. Can I solve the problem by adding them?

We have difficulty understanding what exactly is hardly visible and why. The screenshot does not bad at all, not only that, better readable than with normal 100 % scaling because everything is better.

Please forgive my insistence, but you can't discern a considerable difference in display clarity between the Prime95 main interface and tie "Run a Torture Test " window?


Isn't that why it was mentioned that I may be missing fonts, and that it may be related to scaling?

What I can see is that the text in the main interface is bolded, the text in the torture test window isn't. The text in the torture test window looks perfectly legible to me, but it is much lower contrast than in the main interface window, especially the dimmed out portions. I can't tell how big or small the image would appear on your monitor, which would definitely affect readability. And what looks legible on my monitor with my contrast and/or gamma correction settings may be very different than on your monitor.

Why run such an odd custom scaling, 156% = 39/25?
When I zoom in 4x on your png file, it is eminently readable here and shows individual square pixels in MS Paint on my 1920x1080 display laptop, and at 100% or 150% Windows zoom and with or without 4x app zoom.

But having set your custom scaling here, Windows 10 requires signing out and in again to have the custom scaling take effect, and does not allow canceling custom setting without signing out and in again. So other readers, beware.

Try these steps:
  1. Right-click the Prime95 executable and select Properties.
  2. Go to the Compatibility tab and click the "Change high DPI settings" button.
  3. Ensure the "Override high DPI scaling behavior" option is checked and set the scaling behavior to "System (Enhanced)" in the drop-down menu.
