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.

That's great! Thank you. How about giving us color blind mode and chat bubbles to improve our experience even further?

I never even knew this was in the pipeline and I have asked for such things a few times as my friend can't see very well and obviously doesn't understand what the hell the non-basic speaking NPC's and companions are talking about. So he will be pleased good job!

Cheers,

I just returned to the game after 6 months and it is completely unplayable withe the item tooltip sizes.

Here is a screenshot with a maxed out UI - please tell me if you can even read the text on the item:

Where is the fix? This thread is over 12 months old!

Have you tried the Interface Editor ?

I have to totally agree with you. I have tried maximizing the UI Scale using the interface editor, but it does not increase the tool tip text size when I scroll over items. I really hope the developers fix this, because it seems to be an issue in the game. I would prefer not to lean over the desk or strain my eyes. I think the image you gave was a good example. I run my game on 1920x1080, and the tool tip text is just as bothersome.

I hope they change this a well, being forced to use a magnifying glass on a lot of text is taking away from my normal pace I play at, and is becoming very frustrating.

Finally a thread that I can relate to. I'm glad Im not the only one with this problem. I really enjoy playing the game but straining to read the text from what npc's say or to read a skill or sometimes even an item, really sucks. I've tried everything and nothing works. I do hope they change this and soon.

What we need is the ability to increase the text chat in the UI, not scale it up, the chat font has been fixed is thankfully but the rest needs improvement. I can't read tool tips and I've already had to quit once in because the eyestrain was so bad. Its not just the tool tips either, or the chat font, If you increase the size of your UI beyond 1, some screens get cropped to the point you can't activate certain things, like in the Map. I do not want larger Icons, I want more readable text fonts and a colorblind mode for the UI text would help too. Come on, other games have UIs that just work and look good. I will not spend money getting a huge TV just to play a game I am already paying a good amount of money to play.
