BMS 4.33 Base 64 bits, FA-18 Upfront Display very hard to read
I’m using the guide for bug reporting provided at the top of the tech support forum, so please bear with me.
The issue is that the green text to the left of the keypad on the Hornet Upfront Control panel is quite thin and difficult to read at 1920x1080 when not zooming in from the default FOV.
The image below illustrates this some what, but it is harder to read when in motion as the thin vertical lines of the text tend to disappear and reappear as they skip across… pixels, I guess. Please note the incidental text from the MFDs is significantly thicker and easier to read.
I believe this an issue as the readability of the display is degraded from the normal pilot head position. I am unsure of the font used in the actual FA-18, but as PC users are dealing with reduced visual resolution, a thicker font would make things a bit more understandable
As far as hardware being used, I’m running an Nvidia 770 with up to date drivers, Track IR and a screen resolution of 1920x1080. Anti-aliasing is application controlled (AA seems to make no difference in this case).
My suggested solution is to change the Hornet Cockpit UFC to use the same font that the Falcon pits use for the DED (or any of the MFDs for that matter). That font doesn’t disappear when you move your head.
I use the DED displayed on the HUD mode to read it more easily, switch below left MFD labeled “DDI” (second click). I get the same thing. It’s easier to read with narrow FOV.
