It's exactly what I'm doing in my own game - to compensate for the variety of native res monitors.

That means that instead of setting the resolution through settings, they're scaling images to correspond to whatever resolution they've decided is the best compromise between visual appeal and "zoomed out" feel.

Visually, it's identical to picking the same resolution in the WS mod - but you don't get the switch when tabbing - because it's scaling.

I usually avoid alt-tabbing when playing full screen games - but I can see how it would be a minor convenience to not have the annoying res switch for people who alt-tab.
The sad fact is that I pretty much suck at rpg games (though I do love them), so I am constantly going online and looking at hints in the middle of games!
