The sad thing is that you can already affect the error text size. If you turn down the global UI size, the error text shrinks. So they already have the option we want built in to the game and they will not go to the trouble of letting us access it.

For now, I recommend turning down the global UI size as low as you can and then manually turning up the size of the other individual components. It makes it a bit more bearable.

Asphen: Can we get an option to turn off the combat error text in the center of my screen?

Damion (Principal Lead Systems Designer): We will be looking at adding the ability to move and/or turn off banner text and error text (the two kinds of text that appear in the middle of your screen) as part of the GUI customization system in a future patch. This isn't a trivial issue, however - in some cases, fairly vital information is given to the player here, and we'd need to be sure that in these cases the text gets rerouted someplace for a player to review. So short form, yeah, we're thinking about it, but no ETA for you at this time.

Dear Bioware:

If any of that information flashing red on my screen was important, then I must be missing a lot, because I can never read it anyway. In wow, I scale the error frame down and move it up and to the side, so if I need to read it, I know where it is, but it isn't blocking my view when I already know what it's saying.

I also have about 5 years coding experience in Java, C++, C#, C, and various scripting languages, and I've worked on games before. If it's really this hard for you to add the option to move the error frame to the already existing ui modification system, then your coders have not been following best practices (maybe that's also why the game hogs so many resources with not a lot to show for it).

Please just give the player control, you can leave the default right where it is for new players to see the "fairly vital information".

Thanks for reading,

The best one, actually the only one that affects me is when I try to get on my Sorc's ship on Makeb, everytime I get a red message:

YOU DO NOT HAVE ACCESS TO THIS SHIP

Funny thing is that any door I go to lets me on my ship, and they all give me the same message, and none of my other characters get that message.
