Any fix for running renegade on a 4K screen? I have to turn my laptop res down to 1600x1200 in order for it to run but with a 4k screen it looks crappy. Anything above this crashes so is there any fix for this or possible thing to add in future scripts versions?

Hi,

It's a problem with the fonts you need to edit STYLEMGR.INI

Theses settings work for me.

I talked to Saberhawk (the guy who wrote a lot of the graphics code we have) and he basically said that "HUD and everything is broken in 4k and wont get fixed" (i.e. Renegade will NEVER work correctly in such high resolutions)
Best option is windowed mode (like I do)

It no longer will crash in 4k as of 4.3 rc3. However parts of the hud are still gonna be very small.

And what happens if you use a custom HUD? Can you modify a custom hud to work with 4k?

The crash is usually in font code when trying to prepare huge characters for rendering the menu. Avoid large text and it won't crash.

The Custom HUD should work most likely now that the DPI issue is fixed. Before it was double resizing fonts for both resolution and DPI so every font would end up huge on 4k. Now its only scaling them once like it should.
