• Crusader Kings III Available Now!

    The realm rejoices as Paradox Interactive announces the launch of Crusader Kings III, the latest entry in the publisher’s grand strategy role-playing game franchise. Advisors may now jockey for positions of influence and adversaries should save their schemes for another day, because on this day Crusader Kings III can be purchased on Steam, the Paradox Store, and other major online retailers.

Very simple mod, increases the size of all the game's fonts, including tooltips. I'm using this on a 24" monitor 1920x1080 native resolution and finally I can play the game without bleeding my eyes out!

Before:


After:



Installation instructions:
Download the file and extract all contents into the mod folder: C:\Users\username\Documents\Paradox Interactive\Crusader Kings II\mod or wherever you have your documents folder.

Credit goes to Imperator07 for the idea and his EUIV: bigger tooltip font mod wich inspired me to create this mod. Also to Aardvark Bellay for keeping this mod updated.

Bloody hell why is this not in the "List of Mods" ? Just found it by searching for another older thread.
This is excellent. Quick and easy, especially for small screens i suppose.

Would you mind me posting it there ? Or better you post with compatibility and a link there yourself.
Either way, everyone should know of this. Might mod it a bit for my own use, but brilliant to ease my pain. :)

Thanks

Completely agree. This mod is essential for my setup.

However, I could not get the Tooltip Only mods to work. It always crashes to the desktop. Thanks.

Stangely, this mod isn't working for me. I do want the instructions say, but nothing changes.
Have you any suggestions? Thank you.

Unzip the mod into the 'mod' folder in 'documents' as mentioned above.
Then you should find a 'CKII_UI_Font_Mod' folder inside the 'mod' folder along a file with the same name, but as a *.mod file.

You unzipper probably created a new folder above the already existing files.

There is no mod folder in "C:\Users\Andreas\Documents\Paradox Interactive\Crusader Kings II"
However, there is on in "C:\Program Files (x86)\Paradox Interactive\Crusader Kings II"
Unzipping the given files into each of those mod folders (I also tried to create a new mod folder in the first one) does not install the mod for me.

Nevermind, I got it. You have to activate the mods via the launcher... -.- my fault
Any mods should be in the 'Documents' CK2 folder. Could cause problems otherwise.
As i see you created one, it seems it all worked out fine then. :)
Sorry, didn't think you wouldn't know about the launcher. :rolleyes:

So i checked and only found two differences from the mod as it was in 1.11 and vanilla 2.1 that are simply not updated yet, but not necessary either.

This
Code:
cursor = { x=4 y=3 }
in line 182 in the "eventwindow.gui".

and this
Code:
Y = { 255 189 0 }
in line 477 in the "fonts.txt".

Neverheless, it's still perfectly compatible.
