I've read a lot of posts about tiny TOAW fonts using high resolution monitors.
My issue is the opposite, obnoxious large fonts in the Force Editor and a font that increases for each line in the Situation Briefing at the start of a game.
I've tried reinstalling/updating the game (and restarting the PC) without any luck.
One 3840x2160 monitor and one 2048x1152.
Win10 (I have tried Win7 compability setting)

Thanks

I believe page 172 of the manual will have what you want.

Thanks, but the manual just lists the various stuff that can be edited.
I tried to reduce the font size a couple of places, but no luck.
I need some help telling me what to change in the ini file(s).

Best bet at this point is to just reset the fonts, by closing the game and deleting the file. After starting up the game should re-create the fonts file.

After that, make a backup of the ini files before making changes to fonts or settings.

That fixed the issue, thanks.
Funny though that installing from scratch (on top of old install...) did not.

No worries

Yeah... when you uninstall the game, it won't delete the settings and saves in Documents\My Games. You'd need to delete those manually, and when reinstalling it won't overwrite the ini files if they already exist.
