Ugh. The type font in the game display is awful. The characters are spaced too closely together; and they are too narrow. My aging eyes are having a dickens of a time trying to read what's on the screen. Have pity.

Please change the font back to what it was! That's got to be easy to do.

Odd. For me new fonts looks way better (more sharp).
Do client use system fonts or some own?

Even better would be providing the option for the user to choose the font(s) being displayed in the game...

Sigh - my eyes are even older - I find the new font easier...

You're not a day over 39, auntdeen. :-)

I guess a trip to my optometrist is in order. But I still say the new fonts are nearly unreadable.

We needed a new font to handle more characters for translation. If anyone knows any preferable unicode fonts, please suggest them.

Maybe some of standard UTF8 M$ fonts?

Either the fonts were revised with an update, or I have been miraculously blessed with better vision.

Either way, consider this issue resolved.
