[Not Chat] Text scaling

Recommended Posts

Ok, so I should Probably be wearing my glasses anyway, but I've been reminded (in my latest bought of leveling to 6s) that I really can't read the majority of the text in the various game windows (outside of chat). I half-heartedly looked through the settings and only found the chat settings I'd messed with previously. What am I missing? What I Don't want to do is make the windows/menus any larger in general because they take up enough of the screen as it is.

 

Important Notes

  • Playing on TV - 40" @ 1080p
  • Distance from TV is 8~10'

Have you made any adjustments here? Made it easier for me before my Cataract Surgery.

Windows Scale is the only thing I know of that will increase Font size within the Menus as well, you can then shrink the Vertical size of the Windows to offset some of the scale increase, I am usually at 85% as far as Windows Scale.

Just curious what resolution your Computer is running at? I know you said that the Display is at 1080p, but If you could go to a Higher Graphic Resolution, which usually shrinks the size of menu windows, then increase the windows scale, perhaps there is a Happy point that will Improve the Text size. You have a large area to work with so who knows, but Good Luck.

It's running via HDMI to a TV that's somehow survived a decade (?), to that's a hard cap. Kinda sucks that I don't get the full 120 Hz this thing promoted, but I don't think I even got that when I was using VGA originally.

Yeah, that first image is where you mess with the Chat window specifically. I'll have to take another look at window scale because even on the regular OS I have to mess with that depending on which computer I do general tasks on. IE: With the retina Mac when I'm browsing the internet, I have a different zoom level set for the browser.

Of course you didn't.  I'd be shocked if you actually got 60hz through VGA.

If you want to be godlike, pick anything.

If you want to be GOD, pick a TANK!

I mean, 'back in the day' we had to choose the refresh of our monitors and they were usually 72-85 Hz. 😛
