In game text changes size when using a modified FoV
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Editing the fovTop and fovLeft in the *.Arma3Profile file changes the size of fonts in the game. This only applies to certain fonts (there are some pictures of examples, not an exhaustive list), and this bug seems to be "new" as in this video: from July 2016 this person changes his FoV, but the font is a normal size as the server message at the end of the video is a normal size.

Here are a few screenshots with the small text:

Here is a screenshot with normal text for comparison:

Operating System
Windows 10 x64
Steps To Reproduce

Edit the values for fovTop and fovLeft in the *.Arma3Profile file and the FoV will increase in game but as a result the size of fonts will increase.

Additional Information

Not sure if this is an issue, as FoV changing may not be a fully "intended" feature.

As you mentioned in the additional information. This in my opinion should not be considered a bug. You are tinkering with the file rather than using settings via the in game Options. In that case there is a possibility that issues might occur.
