I play on my TV and the text and such is just too small the way it is right now, and that's at 720p, so I can't go any lower.

Are you going to implement either a universal font resizing for all game text or actual UI scaling?

Eyes are starting to bleed.

Beta testers begged incessantly for improvements to the UI and were unheeded for the launch client. There is a promise from the Dev in that thread (what's coming for SWTOR or something like that) that says its improvement is on high priority.

try disabling high-dpi font scaling on the executable. I know, it sounds counterintuitive, but it worked for me. (Find your swtor.exe (maybe launder.exe as well?), right click, go to compatibility, and check the disable DPI scaling option).

I can read text sitting with my eyes about 6 feet away from my 50" tv on 720p

Too bad half of the televisions in the world are half that size.
May the force be without you.

I don't see that setting under compatibility. Only disable text services. Is that it?

This is windows xp.
