Well that's a very interesting conjecture Moomo.
1. This problem presents itself no matter what screen resolution I choose 1920x1080 or any other. My conclusion is the game as it stands is incapable of supporting a screen size of 15.6". I believe this is the real problem. Furthermore, my only solution is to use my HDMI cable and attach to a 40" screen. Then no longer a problem. The text is still small but readable.
2. Which presents my real reason for posting are other players experiencing the same thing? The 15.6" screen size is common on gaming laptops. Does Stardock see this as an issue it wishes to address?
3. This setting of lower resolution is a commonly used solution for addressing small text. It is also a choice as a screen setting within Ashes. So on my Desktop I can easily control text size and icon size this way but not within Ashes. Why would Ashes allow me to choose an unsupported resolution within it's own graphics settings? Your conclusion that my issue with small text is because of the unsupported resolution setting, when the problem is present at ALL possible settings from lowest to highest, fails to address the real problem of the screen size itself.
4. So Stardock AND Stardock only please will you help me to understand what my options are?
