    Default I want resolution reduced?

    Is there any way to reduce the resolution of the java program window so that 1 pixel is shown at twice the size, for instance? Or do I need to pixelate the various textures etc manually e.g. by making 4 pixels look like 1? How do I get "low fidelity" graphics (if I've understood that phrase correctly), reminiscent of the really old PC games and SNES 16-bit graphics?

    Would be nice if there existed some setWindowResolution predefined java method or class.

    You can set the size of the window yourself, and you can draw however you want, including scaling everything up.

    I know how to set the window size, that's easy (frame.setSize()) but not what I was aiming for. I'm trying to make the pixels in that window bigger, kinda like what Notch made Minecraft look like. You mention that I can scale things up, but how exactly do I do that and are you talking about resizing pixels? What's the code?

    Thanks.
