missing-image-4x3

If you have been playing The Outer Worlds on PC, and are wishing the text in the game was a little bigger, then good news! Redditor ChocoTacoz has found a way to do just that. Read on to find out how to make the text size more prominent, but this will only work on PC.

The Outer Worlds – How To Change Text Size

This process takes a little bit of .INI file tweaking, so the first thing you will need to do is find your Engine.INI file.

For the Microsoft Game Pass version of the game, it should be the following path. Please note due to the size of the location, we had to break it into paragraphs. It should be one single pathway:

%LOCALAPPDATA%\Packages\PrivateDivision.

TheOuterWorldsWindows10_hv3d7yfbgr2rp\LocalCache

\Local\Indiana\Saved\Config\WindowsNoEditor

For the Epic Games Store version of the game, it should be the following path:

C:\Users\*user name*\AppData\Local\Indiana\Saved\Config\WindowsNoEditor

Open the Engine.INI. Use the insert below for the final line of text.

[/Script/Engine.UserInterfaceSettings]

ApplicationScale=1.185

This fix is not perfect. It does affect the entire UI and not just the text size. If you wish to tweak it to your preferences, the number to mess around with is the 1.185 value, but be sure to do so in tiny increments. If you make it too large a number, the edges of the UI will get pushed past the bounds of the screen.

This solution is temporary, but Alex Frey, Obsidian Production Director, has advised that they would prioritize a fix for this issue. Hopefully, it won’t be too long until a way to change it easily gets patched into the game.
