The micro fonts being used now are just way too small.

Even the popup menu fonts are too tiny. Certainly something like this should be configurable, possibly the GuiFonts.json file?

FYI, the image posted is actually much more readable than the game UI. Too funny...

Are you on a 4k screen? If so you should check out the 4k thread here: https://www.matrixgames.com/forums/tm.asp?m=4991284

We are working on adding in-game scaling to the game. It will probably be a few more weeks before it's ready to go out, but it should make the text more readable for all, and provide players with a few new options. It will especially help players get the most out of WitE2 on their 4k monitors.

Awesome.

Thanks for the prompt reply and explanation.

I have been playing around with the fonts from the .json file; however it is clear the game is not currently scaling the UI appropriately to make that plausible right now.

My screen resolution is a typical 1920 x 1080 / laptop monitor. (do not have access to my high end equipment at the moment). But things are really tiny.

I used to be able to configure WiTE to compensate for this, but not so with WiTE2 yet it appears.

Honestly, I prefer the font size that came at release.

Is there any way to get the large font size back?

I am running on a 4k monitor, the size I like best for normal playing is 3840 x 2160, for screenshots I'll use 5120 x 2880 for a wider and longer view.

On my system I set the compatibility to System and I use my own custom font file I created back in testing (you can download it from here: http://www.matrixgames.com/forums/fb.asp?m=4993559 )

Here is a 3840 x 2160 screenshot zoomed all the way in:

Yes, just change your settings to those in Post #2 above and it will scale exactly as it did in 1.02. We had to remove that as a default because of issues with some people's systems, which the in-application scaling we're working on will fully resolve but in the meantime the System (Enhanced) looks and scales great on most systems.
