Sorry Bru, this one is for making things Smaller, not Bigger.

We'll have to find a way to "embiggen" the UI for those of smaller screens in the near future! Are there any fonts in particular that you struggle with? I'm guessing the Event text is the dearest to your heart?

"Hope springs eternal"? Bah. Hope is dashed upon the rocks! Hope is cast into the fire, there to burn to a crisp! For, I was hoping that the switch would return the UI to pre-8.4.1 condition. :cry:

Well, if you would like a suggestion, I would say this: Do not make any fonts larger. Instead, look for contrast which leads to better legibility. Sharper, crisper. Yes, where the lack thereof is most noticeable to me is the Event text but it's the same principle throughout the UI.

Thanks, though, for asking. Much appreciated.

Let's give 'em a chance to keep us laptoppers happy. It may take a while, though, so patience is called for. Do you still have access to version 8.3.0?

I assume when a patch comes out it overwrites previous versions? If so, how could I get access to 8.3.0?

The 32-bit 8.3.0 is still available for downloading in My Page.
Grab it now in case they upgrade 32-bit to 8.4.x later.
That said, I'm confident the current issues will be fixed and the major ones quite soon.

FWIW, 8.3.0 was the final 32-bit version, so will be there for the foreseeable future.

[...]In terms of the cheat bar, it used to be you could press enter after your cheat code and it would confirm it -- now you have to manually "confirm."
That's one I've noticed, too.

And there's a new minor issue in the deployment phase: when I click on the "switch mode" button, it unselects the current unit.
