Is there any way to have the PC version's UI scaled to the size of the Switch's UI? I'm trying to stream this game to my phone and it's painfully difficult to see the UI.

The PC version can use the controller UI, but I'm not sure how that would work for streaming.

There is a global scaling factor in the keyboard UI, but the UI is already designed to maximise screen usage, so you can not make it very much bigger without running into issues with clipping.
Open the config.lsx file (in the '..\Documents\Larian Studios\Divinity Original Sin 2 Definitive Edition\PlayerProfiles\<ProfileName>' folder) in Wordpad, or other text editor, and search for the term 'UIScaling', then change the value in value="1" two lines below. At 1.1, for example, part of the load button in the load windows is cut off, and the bottom of the trade window is cut off (though it is still possible to click through the hotbar blindly to accept a trade).

<node id="ConfigEntry">
<attribute id="MapKey" value="UIScaling" type="22" />
<attribute id="Type" value="2" type="5" />
<attribute id="Value" value="1" type="6" />
</node>

Thanks for the reply! I'm using the controller UI, but it's noticeably smaller than the controller UI on the switch. I've actually streamed the game to my Switch using homebrew and compared it to my Switch version to make sure I'm not just imagining it, and the controller UI is definitely much smaller on the PC version. It's not exactly terrible on the Switch's screen, but my phone does a better job of streaming. I've also tried altering the value in the config file, but it doesn't seem to do anything for me.

Unfortunately the scaling setting does not affect the controller UI.
