SR22G2 Issue with MFD Font Size

Post by chasndav04 » Sat Jan 06, 2018 8:49 pm

Most of the fonts for button assignments read fine yet on the fuel page (where you set the fuel level in the plane) the font is enormous and so the "full fuel" (I am assuming that is what it says since I cannot read what is actually there) I just see one large F over another. Other pages (like the checklist page for example) do not have this problem. Any ideas?

Our installer attempts to place the following files in your sim Fonts folder, check to see if they are present on your W10 fonts folder or your Steam Fonts folder.

ltype.ttf
ltypeb.ttf
ltypebo.ttf
ltypeo.ttf

Copy them to your sim Fonts folder and report back. Oh yes, what screen resolution are you running?

Upon further inspection I found all 4 files in the sim fonts folder:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\FSX\fonts

The odd thing is that it only affects the bottom (page) menu items, everything except the "emergency checklist" buttons on the engine page, and the entire fuel page (all text not just buttons).

I literally tired every resolution and filter and every resolution for my monitor as well with no change.

I attached a pic of the fuel page so you can see an example.

You have an HD display and are using OS font scaling at 125%? If so... that is the source of the issue.

Yes I do have an HD monitor and I have done every res (1024x768 all the way up to 4000x3000....don’t know exact numbers of top end) and scaling from 100 to 300% and the results are always the same.

Again it seems odd the issue is only on certain pages/buttons and that on the same page (engine) all the button texts are huge except “emergency checklist” which is normal.

This really does not have any effect on the usability, just an issue I thought you would like to know about.
