Hello everyone.  I am running a 24" 1080P monitor, and have a great dislike of jaggies.  My computer can run the game with DSR (Downscaling higher resolutions to 1080P) at wonderful framerates, but i find the UI is effectively unusable.  My eye sight isnt what it used to be, and when running the game at 4K downscaled to 1080p, at default settings its impossible to play.  The game can double the UI in options but this looks really terrible on a 1080p screen (its all way too big). 

 

Are there any mods, or methods, to custom scale the UI?  Id prefer to run the game at or around 1440p DSR but even then, its too small, and the 2x option doesnt seem to even be available at that res and I imagine it would look even more enormous than at 4k.

Maybe I'm not understanding the question. Are you setting the game resolution (in the graphics settings) to match your screen resolution? There is also an aspect ration adjustment for wide screens.

yes,

i used to run Dynamic supper res two.

what you can do is there is a hidden scalier in the settings that should be unhidden if you load up the game with DSR, 

it will scale 1.0,1.5 and 2.0 if i remember right.

@Albie, DSR basically forces a game to render at a higher resolution internally and then scales it back down to your monitors resolution.  It makes everything look much sharper and better.  Its basically a brute force means of Anti-Aliasing for games that have no or really poor AA methods.  A drawback though, is that the UI in games will get shrunk pretty massively.  Most games UI can be scaled but WoT's scaling is really poor and clunky.

Uhh, any chance of a translation of the actual text in the .json file you linked.  Its extremely helpful, and thank you, but im wondering if there are any examples that can be more easily observed for an english speaker.
