Big font for the highest resolutions

Post by Whiplash » Sat Nov 01, 2014 4:47 pm

For all of the players who are insisting on playing TS with the highest resolutions, here is the way of how to enlarge the font.
Download this and put both of the images in your "data" TS folder. It's good that you save default fonts somewhere for the case you want them back.
This is not a perfect solution. But at least now you'll be able to read everything easily. At some situations text will be overlapped a bit. But there is no way to fix that right now, because it would require GUI elements to be changed too. I could create a totally new font, but I wanted to keep the default one (even it was much harder to do).

Not working very well, text is soft and server list looks messed up. I would say only good if you are truly visually impaired or something, dunno. But then you probably would not be playing this game (with high resolutions).

Yeah, I could make it sharper, but I would probably have to use some non-default font then. And overlapping would still be there on some places. This is made for people who can't read chat properly.
I expected that Ande will easily make more font size options for the current version, but unfortunately he said that it isn't something easy to do considering how it's implemented.

Not a miracle if you can't read anything with these new 25" or so 4K displays, haven't tried one myself but so I've heard.

Thanks!
On my 42'' TV at 1920x1080 still does't looks big enough, so I've uppercased them all and enlarged the numbers.
Now the fuel advise is more readable (about it, there is a way to make it ever displayed on the top left of the screen?).
So if anyone is interested, here is the download link:

I'm not sure what you're asking.
EDIT: Ah, just use TAB. Press it few times and you'll get it.

Anyway, if you have problem to read text, why don't you just use smaller zoom in game video settings? Just use 1024x768 or 800x600.
