Go for the beta - this one is great with widescreen flying as you can have the hud more in the center of your view!

Well the beta you have is incomplete. I put it together for you in a way you could easily test it in your 3-monitor setup.

Here's is the dilemma (and I am guessing here because I have no way to test it):

The game uses the overall screen width to determine the font size. The latest beta comes with these screen widths / font sizes:

Code: [Select]
width size
1024  12
1152  12
1280  14
1600  14
1920  14
2560  18
3440  24
3840  28
5120  36
6144  44
7680  56

Since you are using a screen resolution of 3968x1080 (3 monitors) you would get by default a HUGE font size of 28 :D and you would need to manually edit all eight *.font files.

I have  3840x 1080. 2560x1080.

Thanks Steven. The same is true for you. Steven either has a 3-monitor setup or an ultra-wide screen (or both!) and he would also get a huge font size by default.

I guess the vast majority of us have a single, wide monitor, and the mod will work ok for 95% of the users. I haven't found yet a volunteer to test the mod in a 2k or 4k monitor. You have to love modern display technology! We went from small increments (1024 > 1280 > 1440 > 1600 > 1920) to huge steps forward (1920 > 2560 > 3840).

I will probably release a beta and let it be until someone confirms font sizes are ok in 2k/4k resolutions.

Cheers!

Well, for me the font size doesn't seem to be bigger as the font was on my old 17' monitor with 1280*1024. Everything is perfect with the HUD. As I'm getting older my eyes also need bigger fonts ;-)
Probably this is the reason, why I don't use the small fonts I used some years ago.
