Playing on 4K resolution - very small UI

    Hey All,

    I have a 4K-monitor (3840*2160) since a short time and wanted to try out Planetside 2 with it.

    Now when I used this resolution in Planetside, my UI becomes so small... it's realy annoying. :)

    Do I have to use a lower resolution? If I have to, it's also a bit annoying since when I alt-tab, it has to jump resolutions.

    Thanks!

    You can at least change the Font size. In UserOptions.ini
    section [UI]
    ChatFontSize=16...20

    Yeah, found that option to, but that's only for the chatwindow :) my minimap is so small :D also the icons on the worldmap are tiny!

    I play on 4K as well and the default minimap is unreadable. I always make it bigger when I log.
  5. Kwintezarius

    And how do you do that? :p

    Planetside has no real wide screen monitor support, especially for Ultrawide, I run a 3840x1080p and everything is just stretched out and doesn’t render properly, it’s even worst when I have wide screen mode checked in settings, but it is a 6 going on 7 year game, you’ll find many of the newer games this isn’t the issue.

    They should have dialed this in with DX11 but didn’t.

    Oh sorry - I was thinking you knew it. It is "h" (default).

    Thanks mate :) but the icons stay so tiny! :D but it's allready an improvement!

    Well, i guess we are in luck that out of All the staff that has been fired at DBG, it wasn't the UI guy... so perhaps there is still hope for this.

    They have never fixed this issue despite the Fact I and may others have made them fully aware many times years ago.

    Agreed. They also used to have multi-monitor support. I'd love to have the continent map on a separate monitor while running a squad.

    Careful what you wish for, i tried planetside 2 on my Triple 4k 40" monitors setup, playing on 12k resolution ( 11560x2160p )

    My mini map was on my Left monitor in the FAR FAR FAR left corner, so everytime i wanted to look at map, i would have to turn my head to the far far far left. lol

    and yes this is the ENLARGED minimap....

    It's not the res I'm after - it's the continent map on one screen, and the game map on the other. :) That would be pretty handy when calling out targets and managing squad deployments. :) :) As it is now, I'm running a 34" wide format monitor, and I think it's at 1920x1200, and it's all plenty small enough - I don't want to go any finer res. :)
