America's Army

I'm running America's Army under SuSE 9.1 with a Radeon 7000 and DRI drivers. The game is fine, but the menu's are almost unreadable. How can I fix this?

Are you using Wine or Winex to play it? If so you can use Winetools to install windows fonts so that your apps look much like they do when running natively... I'm not sure if this is what you are talking about... I hope I helped tho.

Wine Tools

Have fun!

Well, there is only two resons I can think of that would make your menus unreadable, they are:

(1): You have the texture quality set too low, so the font texture is blurry
(2): You resolution is too low

Other than those things, I don't know, you didn't give very much info. How are they hard to read??? Maybe you need glasses.

Blurry Fonts in AA


I know this is an old post, but it's the only one on this topic that could I find when I was looking for help. I've had this problem a few times over the years, and I've just managed to solve it. So I thought I'd post my solution.

I run AA in Mandrake 10.2. I have an NVIDIA video card. I had AA working fine, then one day I loaded the game and the font in all menus were blurry. I also noticed that my in game FPS had dropped to the point where I could barely play the game. I lower the resolution and detail levels, but that didn't help much. The text remained blurry and I could get my FPS back up to where I like them. I noticed that in-game text was fine, only the main menu and in-game menu were affected.

Prior to loading the game, I had applied a kernel-source security update from Mandrake. It appears that the patched kernel-source files caused the menu fonts to become blurry. Rolling back to the original kernel-source package and re-installing the NVIDIA driver fixed the problem.

I'm guessing that re-installing / re-compiling the NVIDIA driver with the new kernel source files, after rebooting with the matching kernel, would also solve the problem.

Hope this helps.
