We need a way to enlarge our text in game.

I have a few friends.I help a lot.That have to use a magnifier to read text in game.I think their game would be a lot more fun if they could read more clearly.I'm positive the people that help people with bad eyes.Would be able to tons easier.Making our game much better.

We also have very tiny text with our larger monitors.The text is so small for people with larger screens.I find myself actually ignoring the chat because I have to be on top of my monitor to read it.I'm sure this is an issue for a lot of players as well.

Is there a way or can there be a way to make our text larger?Maybe a little magnifier on the chat box?Wouldn't even have to be much,maybe 3 settings.

Normal
Big
Bigger

Maybe we could have a zoom on the chat options bar.That zoomed that chat box?Seems harder than a simple switch. Right click zoom would be nice.
Come on RuneScape.This isn't something that's not already available.I mean just look at the top of our window when we make a post.^^^^^Kind of

Nothing hard or big.Keeping it simple in fact. To simple to have not already been done.

To keep it real.Have you ever tried to help someone?That can't read the chat.

Can we get some support on this one?.It just seems to hit the top of the ignore list. In the mean time we get "Bad Eyes" Help us fill this thread.We need this. Tell your clans. Let's get it done.
100% support for 24 pages and 2 years of bumping in my thread and then........

I've been asking since the 4th of July 2015. 2 years now. I actually know a person that quit due to this issue. It is actually the person I started the thread for in the first place. Not sure anything will happen at all. I'll keep trying though. Come join "The Nut House" Vis Wax Fc

Jagex, you're really becoming disappointing with this..

The person I started this thread for in the first place. Has quit and been gone for over a year now. Due to this issue solely.

Surely something can be done here. 2 years of reminding you of this issue. Still nothing. Been told if any thing happened it would be in nxt. NXT has been around for how long now? What is going on here? You must care if we can see the chat clearly.

*sigh* is this STILL an issue? C'mon Jagex, get with the program :-(


Uhhhhhh...... Is there even room to make the text any bigger in the chat-box. By now almost the entire game play is already 25% cluttered with interface buttons and what not else. How much more do you guys want to clutter the actual game play area?

You have to remember that this game is going to soon be on mobile, which is a much smaller screen yes, and that larger text would be a lot better there, but at the same time, feeling of clutterness of the interfaces would increase due to the small game size.

There must be a good enough reason why Jagex is not adding text resize in the game.

Clutter? We already have a chat box, always have had one. Are you suggesting we make the chat box smaller? Certainly an option on the chat box wouldn't be to much.
It's actually the larger screen that has the biggest issues here. The larger the screen is the smaller the text is. Why would we want this option on a mobile anyway? A phone is in your hand much closer to your face too, unlike a big screen.

i support this. however, if people have bad eyes they should see a optician...


I have to agree with u on that, the text in the game.... is actually normal..

The text on my screen is literally half the size of the font in this forum. When I play on bigger screens. It's not even worth looking at the chat. It's nearly not even there.

No support, just wear prescription glasses or get LASIK eye surgery

I guess you're buying? Thanks

I actually don't have any issues myself. I created this for people that do. I know several myself. If I know several. You must as well.
Even with good eyes. With the higher resolution on these larger monitors. The text is very tiny. People have to strain their eyes to read the chat and dialog. Over time this becomes very taxing. This could easily cause people to need glasses or LASIK. I'm sure it does too.

Id be happy if they would let us change the text colors. When I mouse over an ability or look at the achievement list, there isn't enough contrast to see the text without a lot of eye strain.

You can change the colors. Click "esc then Game Play then Chat Settings" Should hook you right up.

Why do we have to even request this; it is a legal requirement not to infringe on the visually impaired online... ;)
Sadly, I've been doing this for 3 years now. I'm very tired too. This is taking way to long. The disappointment is real. Very real!! If you can find the actual law. Let me know.

Well my premier account is about to end, and still can't read the text properly in game... So giving up in November; until Jagex make the game accessible for modern monitors.

It is a shame as got a few quests, etc to do; yet when some of us can't read it properly, there is no point having new content, etc. O_o


The person I originally made this thread for quit. She got sick of not being able to read the game.

What says you, Jagex?

Question..... How would this be implementable on RS3 Mobile? The chat interface would take up the entire screen if the text is enlarged, in my guessing opinion. Haven't done RS3 beta mobile yet ever. However I am basing this of OSRS Mobile layout.
After 6 years + of asking. I'm not even sure they know how. If they do, they surely care less about it.

Although my eyes are fine I fully support this, I find strong blue light from a screen hard on my eyes and the addition of windows blue light filter and on my phone has helped this alot for me. Having to squint of strain to read would have a similar headache causing effect and I'm actually surprised this is not already a feature for people as the game does have some really small font in some places that I know my parents could never read. Great idea!
The saddest part is. If you hover your mouse over the icons on the chat box. The text literally 2x bigger than the chat is.

I'll bump this on their radar, as a few people I know would love this kind of update as well. :)

(This doesn't mean that the update will come out.)

Thanks tons for the thoughts, CM Brandon!!!.Sadly they already know about this. They have for years. It's been in their face forever now. I've made sure of it for years. They simply couldn't care less. The person I made this tread for actually quit playing, because of this problem. I still bump it everyday though.
Thanks again for the thoughts!!
