Ive recently gotten a new pc that runs in 2560x1440. Ive thusly had to bump up output ingame to a more easilly read textsize, but I cant figure out how to change the fontsize used in MUSHClient itself, which remains quite tiny on my screen.

In the version of Windows I am using (XP) You can go to Control Panel -> Display Properties -> Appearance -> Font size, and adjust the font used to be larger. This affects everything of course.

I'm not sure how to make one app draw its menus larger, maybe someone else knows?

No good for me, that messes up other things. Like World of Warcraft becomming unplayable if set above 100%.

This is how it currently looks for me now, ive bumped up the game font to a pleasing size. But the menus are still horribly tiny.

----------------
I found a font enlarger that works for firefox, allowing you to adjust the font on the fly.

WoW has an interface option to control the UI scale. You can choose between "System" and your own scale. Can't you turn off the System scale and adjust to suit?

That did the trick, wow is no longer acting up, scaling to 125% helps so much.

I've added a new script function: utils.menufontsize (newSize)

This unfortunately has the side-effect of making menus in all apps larger (or smaller as the case may be) but you could conceivably call it when the window gets the focus, and restore the point size when it loses the focus.

However I have noticed that the spacing between menu lines seems to stay larger, even after changing the size, when you change the point size back.

Still, it may help. Or your other solution might be OK.

This is the right approach IMO. It's a system font setting and should be changed at the system level.

Lol, that's terrifying and I hope nobody ever uses it.

I now have a Godzilla on the horizon level of terror. :)
