Can you provide a screenshot of the text in question. I play at that resolution and I haven't seen an issue.
Sorry for not replying sooner. The text I'm referring to is descriptive: unit building descriptions, tech entries, and hiergamenon articles. The in-game readables add to the atmosphere, so straining to read them impairs the enjoyment of the game. FYI, I'm playing on a 47" LCD HDTV monitor, and I sit several feet back from it. This probably wouldn't be an issue if I played on a desktop monitor sitting only a foot away. However, my most powerful gaming rig is connected to the HDTV, so I'd like to continue playing with the same PC and display.
Would it be possible to have a config option to increase text size by 1.5x perhaps? Or would this break other UI?
