Hi,

If using Flash Pro to test your app resolution have you tried using the resolution setting to "high"?

My MacBook Pro is not retina resolution, so I used the advice from Enable HiDPI mode in Mountain Lion w/o Quartz Debug to simulate it. That is, enter the following command in Terminal:

sudo defaults write /Library/Preferences/com.apple.windowserver DisplayResolutionEnabled -bool YES;

Once you've done this, you should now have a HiDPI choice in your System Preferences Display panel (after you select "scaled" instead of the default "Best for display"). With this mode selected, the software will act like your display is retina density (as it isn't, everything will be super sized). You can select "best for display" to restore your original display. To remove the HiDPI option,

sudo defaults delete /Library/Preferences/com.apple.windowserver DisplayResolutionDisabled;

(I don't see why, as it seems harmless to have the choice in the list).

lHI GrandMaison, i was asking about a windows solution, but as  i didnt fóund any, i Will check that solution on a Mac computer.

Thanks a lot for your help.

It seems at first glance a smart workaround : )

but.... Looking at this comments it seems risky

I tried this and have completely lost my display on my MacBook Pro, the only way I can see anything at all is to hook up to an external display and close the laptop screen. Is there a way to reverse this process?

I've been switching between 840x525 (HiDPI) and 1680x1050 more than a dozen times a day for weeks without a problem on Mavericks.

I cannot speak to this other user's problems.

And although I knew of this trick on the Mac, I have no similar advice for Windows.
