Any fix for the tiny font issue?

Postby Heera » February 13th, 2019, 7:09 am

I just got a laptop with windows 10. vassal needs java to run. got that and it loads, but the font is super small. from the vassal forums, some people mention a fix with other users saying they don't work.

Is there anything definitive out there solution wise?

I've had luck with High DPI support in Java with the most recent OpenJDK but you may encounter other, module-specific, issues.

Some posted this over on ConsimWorld I think:

For Win 10 users the fix is this:

1. Right click on the VASSAL icon, then click More -> Open File Location, which opens a file explorer window containing the actual VASSAL shortcut.

2. Right click on the shortcut, then click Properties from the context menu.

3. In the properties window click the Compatibility tab.

4. Check the box for "Override high DPI scaling behavior"

5. In the Scaling performed by drop down list, select "System."

6. Save the settings and launch VASSAL.

7. Enjoy the nice legible app we all know and love
