Actually, nevermind.  I was reading the code wrong.  It looks like these 
different modes are supported.  Maybe they just don't do all that much under 
D3D.  Try using the GL renderer and see if it looks any better.

Well that's odd..  It looks like the code in D3D_RenderCopy actually supports 
different scale modes, but D3D_SetTextureScaleMode doesn't actually support 
*setting* the mode!  You ought to write up a patch for it.

Hi Folks

I'm scaling an image from 1024x768 to 1280x1024, and the result looks like a car 
crash. It's all pixellated and horrible, whereas if I scale it in Fireworks/GIMP 
etc it looks OK.

I see a comment that "SDL_TEXTURESCALEMODE_FAST is the only type supported at 
this time" and the SDL source seems to confirm it. 

Is there any way to get it better? I am using DirectX - what about GDI or 

Any help much appreciated!
