    Default Adjust Text Size in Mafia Interface?

    I recently got a Microsoft Surface. I'm finding the mafia interface on this smaller screen hard to read. Short of wearing reading glasses, and making the rest of the universe fuzzy, is there any way to enlarge the text?

    Unfortunately, the only option I see is Preferences > Look & Feel > - Chat Options > Use large fonts in hypertext displays, which only really helps with certain aspects like the CLI, Location Details, and Chat.

    Thanks. I'm mostly squinting at "item manager" menu items. But maybe this will be helpful at some point.

    The old people (like me) also suffer with this issue. There are some workarounds I've found online. But none that I'm willing to run. It's a scaling issue and Win10 doesn't recognize mafia as an "app". Due to that, you cannot go to your display settings and tell it to ignore scaling. Several programmers have written in specific code to deal with this issue. If I find the energy to dig them back up, I'll post a few links here.

    One non-mafia workaround is to add the screen magnification, to make things just generally larger. Either Docked (top of screen) or Lens (wherever your mouse is) would probably work. Or having the whole screen zoomed, depending on your window sizes, but then you might lose a popup window.

    Someone just posted this over at reddit as a client-side fix for scaling issues. I feel like there should be enough info there to have mafia properly handle things (by adding to build.xml I guess?), but I couldn't figure it out.

    Unless I misread it, mafia can't handle it because the fix is to apply a file to the enduser's Java installation folder.

    Well, thank you.
