Hi @tajmahal70 !

Which Tooltip Scale do you have set in your options?

Also could you try to verify your files in Steam? Game - Properties - Local files


I just verified the files successfully.

I never changed the tooltip scale. I just had a look, and it’s set to 50%, which apparently is the minimum size, i.e. the slider dragged all the way to the left.

After verifying the files it looks ok?

Oh, no, it’s still broken. :slight_smile:

I see

Oke we have created a ticket with this issue, thanks!
