Resizing Runescape Chatbox/Icons

Recommended Posts

I'm sure this question comes up with decent regularity, but I'm not very tech savvy, so I'm sorry. I just bought a new laptop (Dell XPS 15 with NVIDIA GeForce GT540M 2GB graphics with Optimus) and the chatbox, minimap, and inventory icons are tiny. I've tried going through the RS display options but can't seem to tweak them. Any help please?

A screenshot would be helpful.

You can't resize them.

They have a set size, the only way to alter how big they appear is to change your screen resolution via display settings on the computer itself; but then shrinking res just to make icons bigger is rather stupid unless you REALLY can't identify them at that size (Like my mum has 800x600 res cause shes blind as a bat lol)

Looks normal to me, just like you have a high resolution. I think you're out of luck.

How big is your screen exactly?

 

Try lowering it to the lowest it can go.

Yeah, I tried changing res and it looked like crap.

Unfortunately, that's the only option I'm aware of. The chat box and icons are the same size (in pixels), but they look smaller because you have a higher pixel count in a similar physical area on the screen.

You might be able to enter full-screen mode at a lower resolution (set in the game) without changing the resolution of the rest of your desktop, but that has its own disadvantages.

Those icons are set to be a specific size due to how the game was programmed, so it scaled them down to handle a higher resolution. Your options are either to lower your resolution, or get used to it, as blunt as that sounds.

There's an button in graphics settings, under the interface tab. It opens the GUI editing mode, which allows you to resize and move the inventory and other such tabs however you like.
