    Example (on 2550 x 1440 or whatever):

    It's almost as unusable as an adobe product

    The battle window would need extensive rewriting to scale better. The background is a fixed size. Try the new battle window, you might find more success in that.
    Also, I'm not entirely sure how you'd scale it. Did you want larger text? You can ctrl+scroll u[ to get larger text. I legitimately cannot think of anything to "scale."

    I use larger monitors (2 of them actually) and I usually just end up leaving PO in windowed mode.

    Thanks for the zoom in tip, though that doesn't help with seeing names and moves. Those are less significant though

    When I got a larger screen, it bothered me too, but you get used to it. Now if I play it on a lower-res computer it looks way too big x.x
    And yeah, I recommend using the new battle window since it's new and things

    Could this be fixed in the new update?The text scaling is very much fixed by mere Ctrl+scroll but the names look absurdly small.Rip eyesight.
    Thanks.
