Change font size in game

Postby Pro on Fri Oct 16, 2009 2:29 pm

During a reinstall recently, i played DOD without putting back my config and just before i realised and hit escaped to put it back in place i noticed that the ingame chat area was a much smaller size than i normally have under my config. I actually really liked that, but i am unable to work out what in my settings is changing this? Anyone know? i tried googling etc but could not find anything definitive.

I play at 1920x1200 and i also notice that along with the font size, the map and kill reports on right hand size seem overlarge as well, is there anything i can do to reduce this? - is it also linked to font size i am seeing?

Plz back up your files b4 u start, as I type'in this without double checking..

Death notices etc

open in notepad etc HudLayout.res in SteamApps\YOURNAME\day of defeat source\dod\scripts

if i remmber right u wanna edit HudDeathNotice and change the WIDE and TALL to a smaller size..


The chat box

open in notepad etc ChatScheme.res which is in dod\resource Folder and look for "chatfont"

you will see "tall" 10 for example change that to whatever size u want it.

On a similar note, is it possible to change the GOD awful font used on the LCD resolution? I forget what the size is. I can't stand Verdana/Tahoma whatever it is..
