    Default Im trying out Smite and the screen game text is too small to read

    Can someone help me out? Im playing a bit of Smite and the ingame text, and even the text in the lobby and start screens are way too small to read. Is thereany way to increase the size of this text.

    I'm using a 19inch monitor and its just too small. Ive seen other more modern mmos that do this - leave text tiny because they think every one has a 30+ inch LCD screen. Well many people dont and its really bad.

    Smite is a really fun game ! A bit simple maybe but its fun! I dont like the waiting queue or the time it takes for the game to start. In Regnum there is no loading screens for battles. Its all free flowing.
    Be warned - I am a major player of Regnum Online the mmo. I've been playing it for about 2 years and rarely go without logging in at least once a day. You can also look at good alternatives to Regnum such ase Aion online and Aika Online.

    You bring up regnum any chance you get don't you?(nobody cares about that game)
    and the waiting time in Smite is so short that it makes waiting in any other moba feel horrible.

    The only time I had problems with text in game was when my windows weren't up to date, other than that I don't really know.

    a bit simple until you realize it's probably a lot more in-depth than your beloved regnum.

    hmm.. i had been hunting for a game almost exactly like regnum for 1 year plus when I finally found regnum. i was after openpvp, faction rvr, no queues, no instances, not buy to win, as close to f2p as possible. regnum fitted it and i was so relieved.

    prior to regnum i had tried rtses, dota, other mmos-- and i dont like their formats as much.
    Smite is fun, but i feel i will sooner or later encounter qualities which i didnt like in dota, in Smite. I tend to feel dota/smite heroes and pvp is a bit shallow because each god has a few skills and many upgrade items. whereas regnum / daoc has many more skills and many more items. it's a much more dynamic and complex game in regnum /dota than smite, though smite /dota style games are slightly faster. but yea, thats just my personal opinion.

    i think a lot of people prefer dota styled games because its less hard to win consistently. it is very hard to win consistently in regnum / daoc formats.

    ( i suspect however that i will keep smite installed because i think it is better than dota )

    Have you tried adjusting the resolution smite uses? I would also check what DPI Windows is using.

    Yeah I've seen plenty of people complain about font too small in various games and it always ended up with something like "My resolution is 3200x2000" or something crazy like that.

    I still remember good old times where everyone had 640x480.

    Try changing the in game resolution first, before adjusting the DPI in Windows.

    A resolution like that would definitely do it (especially if the game didn't support resolutions that high).
