Wonder how many bot programs were messed up by the font change?


Not many I'd guess, I think most of them use code injection instead of screen scraping.

CCP Greyscale: As to starbases, we agree it's pretty terrible, but we don't want to delay the entire release just for this one factor.

I just love one of the devs comments - 6% are against new font..
Yeah, that's why there are almost 30 pages on that subject.

Hate the new font - make my eyes hurt. Cannot scale on my laptop properly have only 2 options 100 and 90. At 100 it's very bad and at 90 it makes things much worse...

The new font is much better than the old font.

We counted 6% objecting the new font, 49% somewhat neutral and 45% writing in a positive manner about it.


What the do you mean somewhat neutral?

Also, there is definitely more than 6% otherwise it won't be such a hot topic on the forums.

CCP please don't try to distort perspectives by throwing out your "little quasi-scientific analysis".

I prefer the new font, and with a 90% scaling on a dual screen, it's just top-notch Bear

People like this won't shut up unless CCP does some kind of poll through the client or their website (while promoted on the client startup) and that would take :effort:

(edit: and even if they did that, they would then argue how the poll was unscientific, biased or otherwise invalid...)

This would mean your laptop screen is less than 1680x1050.

May I suggest that your laptop has a very low resolution display that is unsuitable for... well... anything?

While the font isnt 'pretty' I no longer get headaches, eye strain and other related pains associated with posture (that I dont get with any other game)

Since I no longer get these pains... the font, to my eyes, is the prettiest thing CCP has ever done. I can now play for longer than a few hours.

I would say thank you.. but medically, persistent headaches can cause permanent long term damage, so the only thing I can reasonably say is ... about fkin time.

I have played EVE a lot on 1440x900 and while I naturally prefer my big screen, even that "very low" resolution has previosly been perfectly suitable for EvE, among a million other things.

Haven't tested with Crucible, but will when I get home.

90% scaling on 1920x1200 appears broken to me, but 100% is perfect.

The new font is just fine. Only thing needing tweaking is the decimal point, make it larger.

There are no 30 pages of people who hate the font, a lot of people think the new font makes it easier to read.

The things that are most frustrating to me are solely related to the new numbers:


  • Numbers have almost no spacing between them (maybe a pixel?). Is this just something in my client? Can I fix this?
  • 8s, 0s, and 9s are particularly hard for me to tell apart at a quick glance. I have to spend extra time confirming that I read prices correctly. It was much easier to read numbers with the old font. Maybe this is related to my screen size/view distance but it's almost unbearably annoying.


The rest of the font seems okay, if a bit cartoonish.

if there were 6% people against new font there wouldn't be so much pages of love AND hate...
