Tip for the forums (and the rest of the website) - if you hit Ctrl + '=' it will zoom in the browser a bit, making everything bigger on the screen. Ctrl + '-' will zoom back out making things smaller again, and Ctrl + '0' will reset the zoom back to normal.

On a mac, use the Command key rather than the Control (Ctrl) key and it works the same. This works on every standard web browser that I know of.


Unfortunately, this tip does not work in-game, and I definitely agree that this is a much needed feature.


Can also use stylish to resize text in general, so you don't have to zoom in on every single web page.

Web Devs realizing that small ass font isn't accessible would be a better option, but given the general consensus that a lot of people in the industry have (as well as shitty clients...) Don't really see that being implemented any time soon >_>

*sigh* is this STILL an issue? C'mon Jagex, get with the program :-(


Uhhhhhh...... Is there even room to make the text any bigger in the chat-box. By now almost the entire game play is already 25% cluttered with interface buttons and what not else. How much more do you guys want to clutter the actual game play area?

You have to remember that this game is going to soon be on mobile, which is a much smaller screen yes, and that larger text would be a lot better there, but at the same time, feeling of clutterness of the interfaces would increase due to the small game size.

There must be a good enough reason why Jagex is not adding text resize in the game.


All it would do is make it take up a bit more space in the chat box itself, allowing for less text per line.

If the text-size options are optional, and set to what they are now by default, it wouldn't be an issue for those who can see the text normally as is. If they do it right, it won't be an issue regardless. Might have to scroll more or resize the chat box, but still.

Could see it being a slight issue with other UI, but even then. Can be optimized to just scroll as it already does to fit more text. Not that big of a deal. Might not be ideal for prettiness of the UI at larger font sizes, but still. That can be worked around as well. UI Scaling is a thing as is.

I have to agree with u on that, the text in the game.... is actually normal.

On a side note I would like to tell you guys that the same name or similar fonts on Windows and Macs are different when it comes to looks. Mac fonts have characters that are the same size but tinny bit thinner then their Windows counter parts. Ive noticed this sometimes at macs at my college.

If u have a Mac, then try to see if the game text looks better on Windows. If it does not, then just ignore my post maybe this has nothing to do with the issue at hand. Or this theory may be wrong.
Where is the crumble the undead! WHERE IS THE CRUMBLE!THE CRUMBLE!CRUMBLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The text on my screen is literally half the size of the font in this forum. When I play on bigger screens. It's not even worth looking at the chat. It's nearly not even there.
