I believe that 0 is just automatic, if you resize your window you will see it auto adjusting if you cross certain thresholds. I think this setting just lets you override that. Last year, we released the Better Together update, which let players on Xbox One, Windows 10, VR and mobile devices play Minecraft together across platforms. Today, another console joins the list of cross-play compatible devices, as Better Together comes to Minecraft on Nintendo Switch!

Please, can we get a way to adjust the scale size of the GUI, or scale it down. I have problems with my eyes and I play with Minecraft Large GUI mode since I started playing it back in 2012, I tried real hard to adapt to the Normal GUI scale, but my eyes hurt when I try this (I only have 70% of right eye and 30% vision on left eye) I tested the GUI size and when in normal GUI size in Minecraft, your GUI is perfect for me, but once I choose my large GUI in Minecraft, the GUI for Advanced Rocketry is huge and takes too much of my screen (I'm in 1600*900 resolution if it can help you out)
Oh yeah, very important, I play on 1.10.2, many mods I want aren't in 1.11.2 or 1.12 yet.
Is this still a issue? Please comment if it is and i will reopen if if you are unable? We are closing old issues to see what is still relevant and needs to be fixed.

In this post, I’ll guide you through configuring the ideal settings needed for you to enjoy the best display experience with Parallels Desktop running on your Mac.
First, and most important, the default settings should be just fine. But in certain cases…well, you know how mysterious things can happen with software. Everything could’ve been working fine yesterday, but today you wake up and decide to check your email in your virtual machine and all the fonts and icons in Windows are either too BIGto digest or just toosmall to read.The question is, how does this happen?
So, what do we do next? Simple! We pull out our guns to shoot the rat causing this problem. But again, who’s the rat here? Let’s guess…
Is it the Mac? No, your Mac has always worked great! It’s still too shiny to blame. Then it must be Windows or your Windows applications, right? Wait… What if it’s Parallels Desktop?
Actually, it’s none of these. Or all of these. First of all, Windows applications are not designed for Retina displays, as Microsoft does not support it at all (at least for now). This issue occurred because some Windows applications are not adapted for HiDPi resolution. So the problem is not with the application or Parallels Desktop, this is just the way your virtualized Windows shows applications on a Retina display.
Let me separate display resolution related issues into two types, depending on if it’s a Retina conflict or not.
Follow the advice below if…
Here’s a short list of the optimal settings to get this fixed:
In the Mac menu, go to Actions (Virtual Machine Menuin older versions of Parallels Desktop) → Configure → Hardware → Video and…
For Windows 8.1 and 10:
Check the Enable Retina Resolution option for your VM. Windows will immediately change its resolution, though a VM reboot is recommended.
For Windows 8, 7 and earlier:
Set the Best for Retina option and restart Windows.
Note: If you’ve changed Windows scaling options manually before, there’s a chance that after enabling Retina support Windows will not scale properly.
To check scaling options, right-click on Windows Desktop → Screen Resolution →Make text or other items larger or smaller and set it to 200% scaling.
Setting 200% scaling in the VM will also fix the small fonts problem, but if you still experience this issue with small fonts in a particular Windows program, then you might need to check it again by setting the scaling back to 100%.
Once these settings are applied, please restart your VM.
Follow the advice below if…
These programs can be any Windows-based applications like CAD, photo editors, QuickBooks or any other Windows-based program that doesn’t support high DPI resolution.
Annoying? Let’s fix it:
For Windows 8:
Adjust your Windows VM’s configuration settings: go to Hardware → Video and change the Retina setting from Best for Retina (or More Space) to Scaled (HiDPi disabled).
For Windows 8.1 and Windows 10:
Just uncheck the Enable Retina Resolution option. To check the Windows VM’s scaling settings: right-click on Windows Desktop → Screen Resolution → Make text or other items larger or smaller → set 100% scaling and hit Apply and Sign Off.
So, all is said and done! The hunt is over. After applying the settings above, all Windows-based programs will be displayed properly in a 1:1 scale ratio.
