Hello. I am playing at PC version but on 55 inch TV instead of monitor and it would be really useful feature to change UI scaling or at least font size. Because its almost impossible to read the text.
Simple test - Just try to start to play at TV and sit on the sofa in 2m.
Would be there any feature to change font size or scale it?

Thank you.

Please consider ui scaling or font changing capability for big screen users and people with vision troubles. Absolutely love this game but the eye strain caused by the font and ui scale is only bearable for an hour or so

I play on 1920x1080 on a 27" screen and the UI buttons are tiny. The little arrows to flip quick bar pages are so small you need a microscope to operate them.

Any news about UI or at least text scaling? Is it planned or we can lose hope about that? I saw a lot of people playing on TV connected as monitor and got the same issue.
May be someone knows what is possible to modify, like it was in DOS2 (some lines in config file to modify UI scaling)?

I am facing the same issue. BG3 is unplayable for me due to eye-strain headaches.

This could be solved when controller support is added, assuming the UI and font would be scaled up (as they were in DOS and DOS2). Any word on when controller support might be added? I'm hoping not to miss all of Early Access.

As for a font mod, unfortunately the mod solution for DOS and DOS2 does not work for BG3: replacing the original font files with other font files that are renamed with the original names. Dear Larian, perhaps if you could make this solution work for us, we could make our own mod and take the problem off your hands.

The only solution I've found is manually increasing the font size -- editing each of the font files -- using Font Forge (as described here for DOS2). One limitation of this solution is that it can't be shared as a mod.

Same issue here. Please add this functionality because the current text & interface size is waay too small for my laptop's screen. frown

Why is there so little support for this topic?

In the photo 43" monitor and a text are distinguishable only from a VERY close distance)

I ask all the guys with poor eyesight to hold this thread!

Can't play the game because of the small font size. I have poor eyesight and I can’t read the dialogues normally, and in the combat log the font is too small, I literally had to look through a magnifying glass what was written there. Sorry for g translate.

There is actually a mod for that if you don't want to wait for them to fix it.

I also find the UI and text too small. Also I consider the choice of font to be not the best, to put it mildly. Its really hard on my eye (i'm oneeyed)

I guess they could do that as the same time of this thread concerning UI

yes, I also have the request here that you incorporate this so that you can make the ui bigger

UI gets worst when you lower resolution to get better performance.

Is there? Could you share a link? I haven’t been able to find a font mod that works.

I’m eagerly waiting for just such a mod, and/or controller support that will scale up the UI, so that I can finally play BG3.

UI Scaling and font size seem pretty basic. Please, Larian, include them in a future update. BTW, the game is great!

Dear Larian Studio,
Could You please add functionality of scaling fonts/UI in full version?
Any comment on that from know-person?

My monitor is Dell UP3218K (7680×4320), however, even if I use RTX3090, the game can't reach 30 fps at native resolution. I could only reduce the resolution to 3840×2160. At this point the game UI becomes blurred. In many other games, I can modify resolution scale to get a clear UI and smooth game experience. Could you please add resolution scaling function?

In ten months of EA we never had a direct comment about anything that was written here.
I don't even think we ever had a single developer posting at any point, in fact.

I wouldn't expect them to start commenting now.

And maybe they could change the font as currently at 2560x1440 and all graphics maxed the text is not as clear as in DOS2 for example. Makes reading of the descriptions of spells a big pain in the @ss. Makes me not want to play it, alas...
