I played Tuesday for a short time, same as all play from start to Ensign 7.
I logged in Wensday and my HUD items are about 50% smaller and the text on them is so small,
about 5pixels high x 3pixels wide. Thats 1/16x1/32, talk about tiny.
I cant read any of it and my bridge crew is missing.
It shows up in F12 HUD setup but when I go back, (F12 again), they'er not on the screen.
When going to a star system, the (loading) and history text at the bottom of the screen, is also too small too read now.
The only change I made was from a Radeon 9700PRO to a Radeon 9800PRO and downloaded the latest driver.
The detail on the screen is alot better, but I didn't change any settings.
It's the same as before 800x600, windowed, half res=on.
