Since 1.7.10, there are some changes come to the Minecraft GUI scale ratio calculation, which makes many small text unable to read and distinguish in Unicode font mode. If you plays the game by setting the option “Force Unicode Font” to “ON” or under a Unicode-only language environment like Chinese or Japanese, you will meet this annoying problem.
For example, this is what you can see though a thaumometer in Unicode font mode:
Look at the popup messages in the lower right corner. Terrible, right? I have reported many issues to other mod authors to require them to enlarge the small font in their mod. Unfortunately not all of them want to do that. So finally I have to do it my self.
Unicode Font Fixer is a mod to fix broken text caused by small Unicode font (those text with < 1.0 OpenGL scale ratio).
Currently it supports the following mods:
- Steve’s Factory Manager
- Hardcore Questing Mode
- Modular Powersuits
- Traveller’s Gear
- Electrical Age
- Mine Trading Cards
If you want send me a request to add support to some other mods. Please follow the steps below:
- Launch Minecraft, with the mods you want to get supported and the Unicode Font Fixer mod installed.
- Play the game for a while. Be sure to open all (or at least all of you know) GUIs with broken text.
- Send me the fml-client-latest.log in .minecraft\logs\ directory, or just post those lines with “unicodefontfixer.RenderingDebugger” in the log file.
After installing the mod, the popup messages will get an appropriate font size:
In addition to this example, the Unicode Font Fixer mod will fix every broken text in the mods listed above.
