Adjustable radio menu size

Recommended Posts

Now that the clickable radio menu is here I realised that the menu items could be larger. Then again as that is largely personal preference, my wish is to have a size-slider in the options menu for adjusting the radio menu item/font size. This should include the subtitles for radio as well. If possible, the color of the text items should be customisable as well.

 

This is one of those little things, but little things are often very important long term.

Great idea! As a 4K resolution user, I would love to have an option to get the comms messages and menus larger.

 

It is really hard to read sometimes.

I totally agree reading the letters/menus and the mission editor is extremely difficult with 4K monitors, this is really needed.

I haven't personally tried a 4K screen with DCS, but I can certainly understand the problem. Another thing is, if you use mouse for accessing the radio menu items, they are harder to hit the smaller they are. This naturally applies to any button/item size as per the fundamentals of interface/display design - the smaller the buttons are, the faster you can reach them from eachother, but the longer it takes for you to hit the diminishing area it provides; and the other way around, the larger they are, the more easy it is to hit the correct button, but traversal between them takes longer.

 

In addition to the visibility issue this is certainly something users should be able to tune for their own comfort.

Yeah. Could we please have a way of changing the GUI scale? The microscopic text is just too much.

I wanted that very much ever since I went to 1440p monitor. However, now that I am using a 4k monitor, it really is essential.
