It's been quite a while since oldunreal had an overhaul, but we are moving to another server which require some updates and changes. The biggest change is the migration of our old reliable YaBB forum to phpBB. This system expects you to login with your username and old password known from YaBB.
If you experience any problems there is also the usual "password forgotten" function. Don't forget to clear your browser cache!

The Engine doesn't actually support text scaling, so a lot of the fonts have been changed to accommodate bigger screens. (Don't worry, they still feel like Unreal.). Here's a few screens of the mod in action:
-Scales the HUD of the original Unreal to readable sizes on modern displays
-Supports every default Unreal HUD Option (Changing the Hud mode in the settings changes the HUD mode in the mod)
-Quality of life improvements on the HUD (Saying a message is above the health bar for instance.)
-User defined scaling amounts. (Currently the HUD is only available as a 3x scaling)
-Other options (will be off by default to maintain vanilla look/feel) such as crosshair that changes color based on health, independent crosshair scaling (in case you don't want something huge in the middle of your screen.)
How to use:
1. Extract the zip into your Unreal/System directory.
2. Add the "3X hud scaling" mutator to the game.
-Scaling can't be done on multiplayer servers as it is a mutator currently
-Text placement can be wonky on other hud modes (slightly cut off)
-Applying the mutator to a multiplayer server currently would scale EVERYONE's HUD (I will make user-set scaling in the future)
-Ammo counter numbers are still original size (working on a font for that)
Otherwise, the mod's in a working state that lets you play through the singleplayer or bot matches with a bigger HUD. I look forward to your guys' feedback on how I can improve this mod and fix it to be as vanilla as possible while being legible on modern screens.
And now finally, a download link:

That's all from me for now, have fun y'all!
The only thing I wasn't all too fond of is the font used for the bigger sized text, I know uwindowfonts.utx has some bigger sized fonts, maybe you should look into those for appropriate big fonts?

Note: By default this adds stuff to the bottom of User.ini. I don't have a settings menu (yet hopefully) so as of right now you need to go into your User.ini to change scaling settings/Colors.
But it doens't seem to be working :/
Using this: https://www.moddb.com/mods/unreal-direc ... cbu-and-dx (Unreal 227i)
The misalignment happens with the other presets.
So thanks for you work dude.
I hope that you can fix the fonts problem soon.
Any news?Thanks for the feedback, I'll see if I can get the alignment working on the other presets, could have sworn they worked properly the last time I tested them.
