As title. The fonts are a mess. I do not mind the age of the games graphics. But the darn text is going to make me go blind. Any way to fix this?
There doesn't seem to be any resolution hiccups. Any ideas?
Well you could always install FSO - the open source Freespace engine which fixes all of those issues and lets you play in really nice graphics. FS1 can be played through by the FSport mod for FS2.
Links abound for how-to's on installing Freespace 2 FSO:(http://www.gog.com/en/forum/freespace_series/quick_and_simple_freespace_2_scp_installation_guide

However, if you want the retro feel, this thread has the fix for you: http://www.gog.com/en/forum/freespace_series/fix_for_unreadable_fonts_on_freespace_2
A forumer confirmed this fix works on both vanilla FS2 and FS1, so hopefully it will work for you! (If you don't go the Freespace Open route of course :P)
