Default Scale VST GUIs @2x

I think this has been asked before, and the answer has been 'no', but I thought I would check in and see if there are any solutions yet for scaling VST GUIs.

I have a version of Oatmeal with a 200% GUI, but someone went in to the uncompiled DLL and modified this manually. Still, there are a lot of GUIs that could use this treatment.

If there was a generic hack that worked even half-decently, it would already exist. (But as far as I know, there isn't any.)

The best long term strategy is to keep plugin developers aware of the issue and ask them to create resizable GUIs.

GUI scaling is entirely up to the VST in question. IIRC VST3 is supposed to integrate scaling, but I've seen very few VST3 plugins that implement it.
