Agreed, I was hoping that 1.2 would fix this for me. Tool tip text for items and abilities is annoyingly difficult to read. Even maxing the overall font size using the new UI customization is not enough. Bioware really needs to get it together.

somewhat solved, set the resolution as high as you can go -

pros -
mouse dose as in windows and can be hidden slightly under the screen.
text size increases to readable. (a lot more than you expect, my screen is a 32 inch)
buttons are bigger.

cons (sort of)

cinematic will play in full screen rather than cinema screen. (lean back and you should be fine.

---

hope this helps.

I also play from my hdtv. i scaled the ui at max. Cause everything was too small. But now the map is too big too see. And i can't make the font bigger. Well reading this topic, there are a lot of gamers playing on their tv. So please BW make some changes.

Hello Everyone,

In 2.3 you can increase the chat font size to a maximum size of 30.

I also have troubles with reading the chat window and so i wrote a mail about it to Torwars. They contacted Bioware about it. The UI dev team checked it out and made a change to the maximum font size in the chat window. In patch 2.3 the maximum font size will be increased from 18 points to 30 points. This will be a big improvement for the readability of the chat window.

Big thanks to the Bioware dev team and the crew of Torwars.

I wanted to be sure I post a follow up to Jessia above to let you know that we anticipated this change happening for 2.3. Unfortunately, we've had to move it back to Game Update 2.3.1. If anything else changes, we'll be sure to let you know.

While we don't generally make changes in this manner, we are pleased to be able to provide additional functionality to assist those who are having a negative experience due to being unable to read the Chat Window text at the current maximum size.

When are the ambergreen color crystals coming out? I want to show my respect to this heroine.

I'm being serious here. No sardonic BS.

THIS!!!!!!!!!!

I play on a 60 inch HD Samsung TV and reading conversation text is not enjoyable but whats even worse is when your looking at stats on an item. The Text is so small that it's crazy. I literately have to get up off the couch and sit on my coffee table to use the GTN. Why cant we get a bigger Cursor size for our mouse as well. Sometimes in the heat of battle (mostly in operations) I will lose track of the cursor and have a hard time finding it due to all the wild stuff that going on on my screen.

while you are at it please change the text size on char/target/focus/target of target bars so blind people like me can actually read the hps and % on our targets. Gets old when I have to ask in mumble what % the boss is at. I have my char, tar, and focus plates so large they take up a large portion of my screen and I still have trouble reading the hps/%
