Could you tell us what  "Large Text Mode" setting to apply to Examinables relates to? Does that mean that the items in your inventory etc will have larger text?inventory 

This is the big problem i have when playing the game. I cant read the inventory item details as the text is far too small.

Heres hoping!

Updated the "Large Text Mode" setting to apply to Examinables

I seriously do not understand why is this such a hard thing to implement. Two patches and two failures. Add a simple text-size slider, so we can change the text size on the Inventory/Character-building menus. The embedded scrolling function will prevent it from overflowing, so design is not an issue here.

Please, listen to your users. This is completely ruining a game that I think would otherwise be fairly enjoyable to me.


Thanks for the other updates though.

Any word on proper support for ultrawide aspect ratio (21:9)?

I imagine this topic will be met with silence as they still haven't bothered by the looks of it... Another nail in the coffin of me buying games at or even near release.
