    If you're using Windows, I guess you can try wrldwzrd's daily downloader thingy? I haven't bothered to get a 4k display yet, so I can't verify.

    I have been looking at this with no success. There is probably another thread with more of my comments. The problem is supposed to go away with Java 9. If you enable manifest overrides in the Windows registry and then put a manifest file in the Java installation directory you will have usable text and icons. I probably should post that workaround somewhere although it only works on Windows and requires an admin account or a lot of futzing.

    I had a kludge that doubled the size of every font but that didn't help with icons and several components are not sized using the font size. The results were not pretty. Look and Feel really is not a player here and from a maintenance standpoint, the KoLmafia GUI is fragmented.

    I keep going back to this but I don't want to rewrite the GUI and the manifest workaround is good enough for me...
    Well, thank you.

    Yes, hopefully Java 9 will cover this, as rewriting interface elements would be tricky not to impact other systems. It should be up to Java to ensure that rendering is consistent across operating systems, that's pretty much the point of Java !

    But for now, that manifest idea sounds great!

    I just added https://kolmafia.us/showthread.php?2...n-the-java-app as a 4k machine makes the capital letters less than 1mm tall. :-)

    Ubuntu 20.04 (yes, it's not officially out, I'm using the daily builds) with openjdk 11.0.6.

    Any suggestions would be good.

A VM that is 800x600 only uses 800x600 "real" pixels, if that makes sense. The only thing I have found that makes the VM usable is there are some system options to deal with visual impairments and somewhere in there I found an option to use a large font.

    So I might experiment with non-Java apps and see if I could tweak the VM to make things usable. If those things change what mafia looks like then that will be about as far as I got.
    Well, thank you.
