[Feature request] Bigger font


I just upgraded to AOE2 DE from AOE2 HD and I have a big problem. I play AOE2 DE in a 15-inch laptop and the letters are just too small to be read from the distance that I usually seat from the screen. For instance, I just cannot chat with anybody in the lobby without looking at my screen as if I were threading a needle.

I asked my AOE2 DE friends and they think the same: the letters are too small to be comfortable read when they play in their laptops.

So, I think that the developers should make the font bigger with a patch, or at least, give us the option to make the font bigger in the game settings.

What do you think?

Current font size is good for me on 15.6 inch laptop screen, but of course font size could be customizable in options.

Besides font size, additional font types would be awesome as well.

I’ve had similar issues with other games in the past so i know the pain, even if i don’t experience it now.

So i vote for adjustable font. It really can’t be that much work. Like the adjustable grid opacity.

It might be because my screen is 720p (my laptop is 6 years old). But the game looks and plays good, it is a shame that I cannot fully enjoy it only because of the font in some parts of the game (others parts are good enough)

Did you tried to set interface option “In-game HUD Scale” to 125%? This should certainly help with font size, although makes everything else in HUD also bigger.
You can also alter “Tooltip Scale”.

Maybe L Size Font mod would suit your needs.

I tried “In-game HUD Scale”, and thanks to that I have no problem with in-game text. But I think that you just saved my life letting me know that there is a mod for L-font.Thanks!!

I also will try "Tooltip Scale, no idea of what it is at the moment.
