I don't know much about correcting eyesight, but if you are using a computer monitor to play the game, and you can't read stuff that I have no issue reading, then don't you just put on eyeglasses? Like some people need glasses to read a book? And for those of you complaining because you're trying to play the game on your hdtv... well you can't. Just like you can't play swtor on an xbox. use a computer with a computer monitor, and it's fine.

I get that it would be a nice feature to change the font sizes, but so are guild banks. And like a huge list of everything else that's missing. Considering all you have to do is use a normal computer monitor and throw on some eyeglasses, I don't see the huge issue.

You can play SWTOR on an HD TV - I play it on a 42 inch 1080p TV using HDMI cable connected to my XPS latop and it's incredible.

That is the most insulting stupid thing to say. Don't you think people put on their glasses! IT DOESN'T HELP!

Rubbish. I use a computer monitor and its not fine - because guess what: I'm not a kid with perfect eyes.

No, guild banks are a frivolous perk - having a readable interface is a necessity. Now if it is biowares point of view that they just want kids with perfect vision and the rest of us can get lost, well then we can take our money and go elsewhere (like wow, where you can get readable text)

That's because you are a selfish little spoiled brat who hasn't learn to consider others - much like the programmers apparently.

Bioware, I need bigger fonts in the entire interface if I am to stay around. (That means tooltips, codex, talent trees, and not just the damn chat)

The fonts are way too small for me, too. They're ruining the fun of the game.

Yes please add a patch that lets us scale up the font size. Also add costume slots and ability toggle armor pieces on and off so we can modify our appearance better.

Thanks

Fantastic game btw lots of good content!

Also having the same problem and it's really driving me nuts. Finding it really difficult to make out the stats of items or even understand what certain things do. Hopefully with the amount of issues people are having with regards to text size they'll do something about it.

Also, this is how my face looks when i'm trying to read the screen

This is really getting ridiculous! I've canceled my account until this font issue is fixed. I am getting tired of squinting at the screen! I don't wear glasses nor need them, but trying to read the font in this game, it seems I may need an optical implant to be able to do so! PLEASE PLEASE fix this issue already!!! Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu

35 years old and this hurts my eyes. I'm not sure why PC mmo's always seem to be an eye test. I'm playing on a computer monitor, not a TV.
