Can the text on the game screens be made larger so I can see it?

welcome to the forum, lets take a look first at your settings then see why you can't see it as default thanks and sorry for the issue, if you can't attach as a new member per the 10 rule post, please pm it to me

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.

Whats the resolution you are running?

I tested from 1366x768 to 2560x1440. Some say it looks too small on resolutions double my screen. I am using the standard 14 font size for most of the game.

I uploaded the log file to This reply. I hope this what you wanted. For WITE you are able to modify fonts in the WiteFontConfig.txt, is there something similar for WarPlan?

I saw it in the high res. It is small. I looked into it. I would have to make major adjustments to the game to make that super high res work better. Expand all the images in game and raise the fonts size. I think it wouldn't look good.

The best thing to do is run it in 2560x1440 or 1920xXXXX

What did you mean by this statement? Is there a place in the game to specify the font size?

Font size 14 is recommended for apps or larger

Players should NOT have to reduce their screen resolution.

New games, and even old if the developer/Matrix want to keep selling them, should support image scaling to support 4K monitors/tv’s. The majority of players may not have them yet but they will most likely with their next screen purchase....

Sorry to be a nuisance but I don't see so well. Are you setting Font size in Windows 10 or in the WarPlan game?

It is in the game itself. This isn't a Window's app game. It uses Unity Engine.

I recommend playing full screen with 2560x1440 or 1920x1200.

I'll see what I can do on my end.
