With RSC in its present state, the link to Willi Herr's old patch for increasing font sizes in larger screens is not available from that source.

Does anyone have a copy they could post here?

Thanks in advance for having a 'rummage' through your old files!

I'm pretty sure that I have this at home, if I can remember to look for it.

There is a link here > http://lakare.interfree.it/util.html for a chat font patch by Wilf Tonsmann.

I simply went to GPLLinks and did a search for font.

Another great place to look for utilitiies is GPL++TheAddonswhere you'll find a link to HEREfor WiHerr's "FPATCH.EXE"

I can't download anything from RSC so if anyone else is having the same problem, here is the file ( the updated one with a readme):

Hello helpful people,
Would anyone have a copy of this patch available to post here?
Had to do a reinstall and all works fine but in game chat font is now smaller than you typical M$ user agreement .05 font.
All the links I have come across for the patch appear to have gone to the great page 404 in the sky.

Thank you in advance if you are able to assist.

In case I am an idiot, I have saved you some time http://lmgtfy.com/?q=gpl+font+patch

:oops: :huh:  
Hi Dangermouse,
Your confused and so am I.
I did see the link you refer to last night whilst sitting at my main machine. It kept telling me nope not available, can't find the file to download. Not here not anywhere. Hence my post.
Now I am on another machine I can download it no problem.
Why didn't you just change machines last night you may ask? Good question. Very good question. Next question?
To be honest I had forgotten about the problem and was half way through the practice session for an online race when I noticed it again and went quickly searching. So not able to machine hop at the time.
Now my main machine runs Win 7 and the one I am on now runs XP. I had the same problem last year trying to get some tracks from the database. 7 machine says no, XP machine says yes. Not many tracks mind you, just a few. Weird.
Does anybody else have this happen to them or is it just me?
Anyone?
So I am sorry to confuse you Dangermouse or anyone else, my bad.
Got the download, can read the chat and will now go sit in the corner and have a good long hard think about my actions.
Say hello to Penfold for me.

Cheers

There was a patch to give larger font for the replays. Anybody have that? I lost it. At 1920x1080 the font is pretty small.

IIRC GPLShift will help you with that......  :idunno:

Also have a look at what Bob recommends HERE

How's it going Tim? I was using GPLShift to enlarge the font but I found that every time someone typed some chat, or even when someone joined or disconnected from the server, I would get a major frame rate stutter. I use the outline fonts in Prib so I don't get the problem there. Let me know how the Herr patch goes when you try it online. (Hopefully I'll see you Thurs night for AusGPL praccy)

Cheers
David

Was that the right link Keith? Bob wasn't in that thread. If I remember right. The font patch didn't effect the font in the replay menu. I'm only concerned with the replay font. I don't race online anymore, so chat font is not a problem. I sure wish i didn't lose all my stuff. On my old system the HD failed on me, and I couldn't save anything from it. Then I lost my CD's with all my saved info on it during a move. I've had to start from scratch again.

Greetings. Raced on-line last night for the first time in years and noticed the chat font (while racing) was so small, I couldn't read it with bifocals. Tired this fpatch, but is not compatible with Win10. Tried running it to be compatible with Win XP, 7 and 8 and still no luck.

No big deal but if someone has an easy fix, I could read chat and crash at the same time.

Thanks,

Will
