Now admittedly I'm not the shiniest apple in the basket but even I have noticed a change in the font displayed in FH2. This includes the text font, the death messages, spawn font etc. I wondered what other peoples opinions of this change are? I, myself do not like it so much. It's larger than the standard text, blurred to the extent you can't differentiate certain characters (such as ',' and '.') and it does take up a slight more amount of space off your screen - not an entirely welcome thing when people are firing guns at you. I can admit I'm not really a fan of enormous HUDs and I'm really not into the uneccessarily large compass-shaped mini-map of BF2/FH2. Just look at BF2142s mini-map and you'll notice a slight difference - it's minimal and smaller but there's no hinderance to the information it's giving. So, finding out for the first time that the text had been changed in FH2 I was a little lost. I'm running at 1440x900 on an 19'' widescreen (highest supported resolution), 8800GT, all settings High with 8xAA.

Spoiler: Show

And I could never understand exactly where the Kublewagen driver was going - it wasnt me before anyone says. Pubbing is a wonderful thing.

So. Is it annoying anyone else but me? Would anyone else like it to be resorted back to standard BF2 text as well? Can it be done? What were the reasons for changing? Is it due to FH2's custom shaders? Has anyone else even noticed a change? Am I just going stark-raving crackers? I'm not neccessarily complaining. But if it could be changed, I'd welcome that. What's everyone elses views? I know it's not a game-breaking issue, but it's something to think about. I cant really show it off with screenshots, it's much more evident ingame. At least it's not another 'kill the suppression/bleed effect' thread. Discuss. Oh and by the way - flame in this thread and I'll shove a boot up your arse. Same goes for the standard ''GET BETTAR GRAFIX NUB!!1/one'' informative reply that a lot of thickies resort to.

Interesting point you have here, and with the evidence shown I think I would have to agree that the text in FH2 is a little to bold for my taste.

Thanks Wes. You've confirmed that I'm not at least partly crackers.

Well I must say I really don't like it when games put so many health bars, ammo bars, minimaps, dialog boxes, radio consoles etc that you end up with a 100x100 pixel window in the middle of the screen to actually see the game in.

It can get annoying especially if you like to spell well; for example, , and . look exactly the same in game which is annoying but, as you said, not a game breaker.

It's extra annoying with me as I like to add in many commas if it should have them. Yeah, I'm a stickler. :p

Not only BOLD but blurred.

I liked the font and positioning of the FH1 text a lot more.

I think that the font is GREAT, but maybe a tad too bold. It is slightly difficult to read. Other than that, I think it's fantastic.

I have to disagree, NCOL - I love the new font, it's one of the things that makes FH2 feel like a whole new game rather than a mod.

As for Flippy - please, do you know who NCOL is? Implying that he's some whiner intent on taking down FH so has to come up with complaints at every turn is an insult to his years of service to this community.
