Undocumented feature included in some of the beta patches, recently found out in a obscure thread hidden in the tech support forum.

HugeIcons=Y does what it says - The unit icons in the unit information panel are larger :) So, perfect for those with a higher than 1440x900 resolution.

Klink, Oberst

Thanks to you and the Oberst. That's an eye-saver.

When I hit 'Y' it progressively zooms the main map, but doesn't change anything in the unit info panel.

This is in the INI file, not a hotkey.

But yeah, I think I've had this set since day one. Makes the Unit Panel look good with a single unit.

But still doesn't do much for the TINY icons with the panel in Stack Display Mode, and neither does it improve the Battle Planner in terms of icon sizes.

Thanks for the location of the data but of the 2 .ini files I see there, I don't find the "HugeIcons=y" line of code. I'll look again.

It wasn't in my Opart 4.ini file either so I put it there.

The 'all over the place' is not the fault of TOAW. It's a Window$ thing.

I added the line

HugeIcons=Y to that Opart4.ini file / restarted game and it didn't change anything.

Riley,

the only incon(s) that appear larger are those in the unit information panel (see one of my earlier screenshots). Now, check if the entry is like in my screenshot below. You are running, I take it, the latest beta 4.0.1.23 as well, aye?

Klink, Oberst

Indeed I am not. I shall give that a go. I'm sure that will be the fix.

Thanks.
