Seems a bit easier on the eyes to me. I think you're on the right track.

Any news on fixing the hard to read text? I'm having fun with the game but dread reading the story line. It is very hard to read on my monitor at 1920 x1080. To the point that when I have to read it I take a break to decide when I want to take up the momentous task.

Extract this and put it in the "data" folder of your Wing Commander Saga installation.
I ripped it right off Blue Planet, credit goes to them.

Correct me if I'm wrong but it seems the prologue fiction text is the same as the Darkest Dawn fiction text...or am I wrong.

Thank you X3N0-Life-Form, It is much easier to read now. I also D/L the pdfs, nice easy reading. What is the Blue Planet? I did a search but the clutter form other hits is just too great. Is this game being worked on still? If so I would have expected an official patch. Thanks again.

Glad I could be of assistance :) Unfortunately, the dev team has stopped working on the game shortly after release. They still pop up every once in a while, but they have moved on to other projects and real life stuff. I think the only thing left on their TODO list is to prepare the source code for public release. Once that's done, we'll have the means to support the game ourselves.

Blue Planet is a high quality Freespace Open** mod which made extensive use of the fiction viewer and generally speaking has got lots of text in it, which prompted them to use an easy-to-read font. If you've got a copy of Freespace 2 lying around, or are willing to spend 10$ to buy the game off gog.com, you should check it out. It's a nice continuation of the FS2 storyline, the writing & mission design are excellent. The story isn't finished yet, but the mod's already got between 30 & 40 missions.

**Freespace Open is the name of the game engine Wing Commander Saga runs on.

Hard to read, yes, that's the cause why i had done several improvements for our german localisation project.
