My Eyes Hurt & They are Bleeding!

I have been playing a lot of Mysteries of the Sith multiplayer online recently. It is a terrible strain on my eyes to read the very tiny Text / Taunt messages that people can send during the game. Seems kinda ridiculous that JK/MotS has such a tiny message font feature while other games use larger readable message systems. Is there a way to increase the Font size of sending the messages? Or has someone ever made a program to fix this? I am playing MotS in 800 x 600 resolution / Diamond Viper V770 TNT 2 Ultra.
Thanks.

Just play it at a lower resolution.

You could also burn your eyes out with hot cinders and wander the Earth. That would stop you from having to see the tiny messages (and most of everything else).

Thumbs down

Hmm.. about a year ago, I seriously thought about releasing a "new" patch for MotS/JK that would have a larger HUD and larger text font so that people with higher res's wouldn't have that kind of eyestrain.. however, I realized there was no feasible way to edit the text (at the time at least).

That was of course before that Utility was released that let you edit the actual fonts (the updated FontMaster?). I forgot if somebody released the thing I was thinking of doing, but anyway, the only other solution is to get yourself a bigger monitor or lower the res. Yeah, it's too bad they don't have scalable text as a feature in the game.

It would be easy to do now, just double the sizes of the BM's used for the HUD and use a double-sized font for the text, and make sure you line them up properly, zip it up with a readme and you're set.

As for me, I try to sit a bit away from the screen when I play or at least take breaks (10 minutes every hour or so is a good break). Back when I had a 15in monitor I could sit up close and play with no problem, now with a 20in, doing that gives me a headache in short order. ; p

How come there's nobody on here when you need them?     
  
Why aren't there mods on, all the time at least checking up on everything! 
How many mods are there anyway? Why am I talking to myself? [/endrant]

There's a few of us, but we're not all on the same time zone, we have different schedules and lives, and we don't know everything (shocking as it may sound to hear that).

Glad you figured it out!

Y'know, I have a great snipe lined up, but I can't use it because Kurgan's a mod and he could ban my ass.
