Change in game chat size

Left 4 Dead - Change in game chat text size By Mr. X

I play on a high resolution TV, and it was extremely hard to read the game chat.
It took me a while to figure this out, so I thought I'd share.

The file you are looking for is Steam\steamapps\common\left 4 dead\left4dead\resource\ChatScheme.res

Before making any changes I recommend making a backup of ChatScheme.res.

Open ChatScheme.res with a text editor such as notepad.

Scroll about 1/3 of the way down until you find the "FONTS" heading.

Under "FONTS", find "HL2ChatFont" and under that \\LEFT4DEAD: "ChatFont".

Each section is relative to the resolution settings you use, so if in doubt just change them all.

"yres" is the range of vertical resolutions that will be affected by changing the "tall" value.

Change the values marked "tall" to increase or decrease the font size.

"tall" is the number of pixels high the chat font will be.

You can also change "weight" for opacity, font styles, and "dropshadow" "1" (on) or "0" (off).

If you break something, just restore you backup.

Hope this guide helps! Posted by Mr X on September 10 2013 · In Guides · 0 Comments · 2158 Reads · Print
