    Font size increase on loot messages?

    I play Thief 1 & 2 with all the latest patches at 1920 X 1080 and all the fonts are fine except for the loot message on the lower right of the screen. It's way too small to read comfortably in 1920 X 1080. Is there a way to increase the font size here without having to lower screen resolution?

    Open cam_ext.cfg in your install directory and look for this line:

    ;d3d_disp_scaled_2d_overlay 64

    Removing the semicolon on should make all overlay text larger while keeping it sharp, so you should be able to read it much more comfortably.

    Open up your cam_ext.cfg file in a text editor and look for the lines below:
    ; enable scaling of in-game 2D overlay (HUD), makes the things like current item/weapon text, or SS2
    ; HUD/panels, larger at resolutions of 1280x960 or higher with pixel perfect scaling (requires "use_d3d_display")
    ; NOTE: Enabling scaling may actually improve performance, especially at high resolutions.
    ;d3d_disp_scaled_2d_overlay 4
    Remove the semicolon from in front of last line to enable scaling of the 2d overlay, and set the value to 2 or 4 depending on your preference (2x or 4x normal size for the HUD).

    Edit: Jax64 beat me to it, but he didn't mention the number which is important.
