Particularly the readables. I would like to make them easier to read, perhaps even occupying more/the whole screen. Any easy way accomplish this for all missions?

Maybe by changing your screenresolution.

Or ask the TDM team to create a global variable for command textscale.

No, there's no way to adjust text size other than use more of your screen (bump up the resolution). The menus are designed to accommodate certain sizes, and the amount of text on a readable page depends on which text size the mission author chooses. Changing the text size via a menu selection will wreck existing readables.

Hmm, I have a thought.


Replace the cursor pointer texture with a material that simply scales _currentRender so when you mouse over text it works like a magnifying glass.

Of course, to be an elegant solution there would need to be code support to toggle the cursor \ magnifying glass textures. Could be a simple parm switch

in the existing material def for the cursor.
