Chat font is tiny

The font for the chat window on Deep Island is tiny, and cranking up the font size slider in the KI settings doesn't help. I think this used to be better. Is it possible that installing Chogon's Win10 + widescreen patch broke this? Is there anything that can be done to fix it?

Maybe Zrax can wave their magic wand of editing the UruExplorer.exe file again. ;) Or maybe there's a Python-only fix, that would be much easier?

Change the miniKI's multiline edit chat area to "Scale with Resolution" in the PRP.

At least on my system, things are tiny even with the old binary (using the same resolution of 1920x1080).

Change the miniKI's multiline edit chat area to "Scale with Resolution" in the PRP.

Thanks, I was going to try some Python hacks (seems easier than PRP editing) but I'll try this first.

It still seems odd though that the font size slider in the KI does just nothing. I think it has been like that pretty much always, but still -- not sure why.

Yes that seems to work great, thanks a lot :)

Yeah, for some reason, Cyan forgot to mark that setting on the miniKI in the max file, so the font can't scale with the resolution and can only *decrease* from its setting. 15 years ago that was no big deal because we were all using tiny screens and playing at 1024x768. Now, we need the text to get bigger with our gameplay resolution ;)

I don't feel like font size is decreasing with the KI setting though. Should that happen in real time as I slide that slider?

Yes

Something is wrong then. I looked at the code and nothing seemed obviously off... strange.

AFAIK this has never ever worked on CC. Sounds like an engine/API bug we'll have to live with.

It worked fine in Unt├Čl Uru, IIRC.
