Too wide spaces between segments of emulated WP34S?


Is there a way to narrow the spaces between the segments of the characters of the emulated version of our WP34S?

See the diference between the emulated version and the real version:

On the screen, a pixel is the minimum distance between two segments. And a pixel stays a pixel ;-) Thus,in a way, the emulator LCD is clearer than the real one. Take a screen shot and you see why.



The artwork of the display in the standard Windows emulator is courtesy of HP's emulator kernel that came with the SDK. I just didn't spent any effort to redesign it. You can design the display yourself by editing the skin files and the bitmaps. Enjoy! ;) (It's a fiddly as can be.)


Thank you Marcus, I'll have a look at it to see if it is feasible.
