    Default Larger fonts

    Here is a mod for the visually impaired or people who would simply think the text in Empire is way too small.

    There are 4 versions of the mod, each makes the text a bit bigger, about 2 points larger than the previous.
    Unfortunately the largest setting I made (8 points larger) doesn't work quite right, too much text goes off screen.

    Screenshots:
    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 

    Default:

    1 step larger:

    2 steps larger:

    3 steps larger:

    4 steps larger:



    Pick the size you want, extract the zip to
    C:\Program Files\Steam\Steamapps\Common\Empire Total War\Data folder
    And use Mod Manager to enable the mod.

    Just the basic +1 looks great. Perhaps if possible it would be nice to have a version that only raises the very smallest text one step and leaves the existing medium and larger texts alone.

    I tested on 800x600 (as you can see in the screenshots) and on 1440x900.

    I think (but haven't tested) it's not possible to properly change just the smallest fonts, as the smallest font on high resolution is bigger than the smallest font on a low resolution.

    OMG thank you so much for this. I honestly can't read a single thing in the game due to playing on a 42" plasma. I'd rep you but I've gone over for today's allowence of Rep but I'll get you tomorrow.

    *edit*, just tested out 2step larger, this is definitely going in my sig as a recommended mod.

    **edit** rep+

    I just signed up to say thank you! It is unbelievable although from what I have read not entirely unexpected that text size is not configurable in this game.

    I play on a 85" projector at 1920x1080 but regardless of the resolution the text size is hard to read (it is scaled by res.

    Also red background on text is bad bad bad!

    Lets just hope that the development team actually read these posts and improve this in Napoleon.

    Fanatsitc mod, essential for big-screen gamers / high-res gamers. ...... Visually impaired I am not, but thankful? That I am! +rep!

    1920x1200 here at a 26inch FullHD samsung monitor, my eyes were burning out! Thank you so much! (Strange that you get punished for buying yourself a good monitor, should be the other way around!)

    Simplicity at its best!

    This mod is brilliant. Absolutely brilliant. I wish CA had this implemented this as an option in the first place, but oh well.

    This really helps me with reading the texts on my 32 inch LCD. Thank you very much.

    I was always interested in the history tidbits that would pop-up when you reach their respective dates. Unfortunately I skipped these in ETW because eyeball fatigue is uncomfortable.

    Thanks again. you have rep coming your way.
    May your road lead you to warm sands.
