"Message" font size way too small.

Fri Sep 30, 2016 11:59 pm

hello! i tried both ingame font options, but don't see a big difference no matter which option I choose. The font is extremly small for me and it's difficult to read the event and historical messages. I'm using a 22" monitor with 1920 x 1080 resolution. Would it be possible to add more font size options for higher res monitors or something? Thank you in advance!

Yes I found the font way too small for my 50 year old eyes as well. Only thing I found that worked is to change the font size to 125% through Windows. Works well except it messes up other game displays so I have to keep changing back and forth.

This is a flaw that Ageod does not want to warn, I push them to make a better UI but it isn't enough for some gamers computer.
Maybe try what I told and did for RUS, it should work:
Run the game in 1600x900 and use the Small Font option: It still should not be enough, so download my fitter fonts, somewhere here: viewtopic.php?f=289&t=39820

Even, increase the DPI greater: 150% (maybe I even use 175%).
What other games? Ageod? So try my fonts with all their games.

I won CW2 some few time ago, so if you still have problems I may see about this (I didn't launch the game yet).

Okay I installed and tested.
Surprisingly, no, you don't need my "144DPI" fonts.

You have to:
. in Win10, put your system fonts to 175% (168DPI! the cursor all to the right in display settings)
. decrease the resolution of the game, like playing in 1600x900 instead of 1920x1080 (in game folder, launch AGESettings.exe)
. choose the 'Small fonts' option (system tab) of the game.

So, the dev has worked to tweak the UI good, letting area for all the system fonts!
Thanks! at last after so many years, before abandonning the engine.
Already, it makes experience for the dev, for the next engine.
