Is it just me, or is all the font unbearably small?

On any of the 16:9 resolutions (I have 1366x768 native) everything is absolutely TINY.

Same here, every TW since Empire at least. No fix that I can find.

A lot of people won't believe you btw, just so you know :)
Your telling me that you can't freeze time in the heat of battle to asses the situation like all the great generals did throughout history!?

I have a 55" tv and i still have to sit pretty close to read the font. Empire was AWFUL too. When I play most games including starcraft 2 I can sit all the way back on the couch but when I play the total war games I have to sit like 4 feet away.

I guess making the font larger would have dire consequences on the rest of the displays (<----for lack of a better word)

I had no issues with reading for Empire or The Shogun 2 Demo. Perhaps it's cos I'm fairly close to the screen to begin with. But I dunnooo.
If a band keeps thier original sound then they sound the same, if they change thier sound then they're selling out.

I play on a 24inch widescreen 1920x1080 and I find the font size to be acceptable. However like most pc-users, I also play at a desk so im never more then 4feet away from the screen.

You might try lowering the resolution as that will make the text larger so that it may be more readable though there will be certain tradeoffs.

Gotta love how they make everything look nice at high resolutions but never, ever, tweak the font sizes to scale WITH resolution. They being not just CA, but all developers in general.

I play it on my 120 inch hd projector and it STILL looks small. I refuse to change the resolution so I just squint through the game.
