Change Text Size

Question

Hey everybody,
 is there a way to change the font size without changing the screen resolution by itself?

Was less complicated in fewer versions. :D
The Screen and term-api doenst provide that anymore.

Thx a lot for your help.

nothing has changed in the term api, and there was never a way to change font size, only ever could you change the resolution, via the gpu

require("component").gpu.setResolution(newWidth, newHeight)

@payonel

Sure there was - in times of 'peripheral.wrap(side)' instead of 'component.get() and monitors instead of screens.
it's mentioned here:  http://computercraft.info/wiki/Term_(API)

thought there is a solution that this would in the new version, too.
didn't play FTB for a long time but try to get used of it again.

nevertheless, thx for helping me out

hm - could you explain this further?
thing is I'm programming a controller for a extreme reactor again - but the letters are too small to read it from below. Changing resolution results in less detailed display (eg for small lines)

well am not too sure what to explain? poeple have made big letter apis witch will create letters useing box charectors. nerver used it my self but if you want to have bigger letters and if you don't want to change the resolution then that maybe the fix? i know (even more ) pixylated charectors may look bad but its that or resulotion change there is no other way

If you increase your font size, you are reducing the number of lines you can print to

If you decrease your resolution, your font appears larger, and you reduce the number of lines you can print to

It is effectively the same

yeah...and the max Resolution is bound to the Gpu which is in  T3 160×50, right?
How can I make the screen larger?

The max screen size is descripted in the config, but not the maxRes for GPUs

our screen resolutions are not exposed in the config. you can make a multi-block of screens though, if that helps. they auto connect, and I think they have a 6x8 max grouping, or something like that
