Hello, I understand that you can change the chat font size in the chat window and there are some font options in the graphics menu. But when I try to run EvE at 1900x1200, which is the native resolution of my monitor, the game text is to small. Is there a way to alter test size so I can enjoy EvE at a higer resolution. Thanks for your replies.

I'm doing 1600x1200 with "expanded font" which you can choose in options menu and there's some other font option was well which I can't remember but it's all in the options menu, you might have to activate advancedDevice=1 in prefs.ini.

Nope, other than the tiny different the expanded font makes, there is no way to make it bigger. There used to be, (but they stopped people from using it) but CCP decided that being able to read the game text above 1024x768 wasn't a priority. =(

The chat screen i have figured out how to change font size. my issue is i just bought a 22" wide screen monitor and all the other text is to small and broken like the text in the overview,market and hanger. I have yet to fine a fix for that.

Yeah, you used to be able to use your own fonts but you can't any more. It's quit annoying, but all we can do is bug CCP and hope they decide to make the font bigger or let us have some options at least. =(

Lol, the small font was why I gave up on Eve in 2003. Kind of got used to it now but I'm still hoping that the new client will finally give us more choices.
