old tech makes for interesting issue, but without a report it's somewhat harder to fix without guessing etc

How to get a DirectX Diagnostic file:

1. click on "START"
2. click "run"
3. type in "dxdiag" and click "OK"
4. check through the tabs and perform all tests
5. click "Save all Information..." and save the text file to a location of your choice

We prefer that DxDiag files be posted as message attachments rather than pasted into the body of the post.

once the report has been made, just attach it to your post as it's a Txt file which is then permitted to attach to the forum.

on windows 10 i'd suggest one thing on older versions of windows, that advice wouldn't work either and looking at the screen shot it looks more like vista or windows 7 maybe, but guessing so upload the report then i'll find a solution which may work, but old res aren't so user friendly with modern apps and programs

in game there are some options, for full screen or windowed etc for certain size res like yours and also for those who use none default DPI

enabled large system fonts (more than 100dpi) etc etc

definitely some kind of font issue as not all text has the same dimensions in your screenshots.
See properly looking text for 'Air HQ' but much smaller text for 'Fliegerkorps Tunis'

thanks guys for help,

I figured out the issue..in the past I changed in the witwfontconfig.txt the font #5,Tahoma,9,1 to #5,Tahoma,7,1 (in order to better fit the attack-movement etc. values on the counters).....and forgot about it. So OK now, switched back to size 9, and no more overlapping in the above reports)...
