[How To] Adjust Fake Console Size

Postby AnthonyBF2 » Tue Jan 26, 2016 4:26 am

For a long time the tiny size of the Fake Console window bothered me so I decided to do something about it. Here is my method of tweaking it.
Note: This was performed on the 1.3 r129 patch's ingame.lvl so if you've got a different version of the 1.3 patch, it's recommended you do not try this. The resolution this was tested on was my personal max of 1280x800.

Go ahead and open up your hex editor, and open the file ingame.lvl. Make 2 changes as listed below:
offset 10EBB change A0 to FF
offset 10E8B change 98 to FF

My old game looks like this:

My new game looks like this:

If you have a bigger resolution you may play around with the changed bytes to make Fake Console bigger to your liking.
I hope this helps others, enjoy! :thumbs:

Trying to get that list properly aligned on every screen resolution at the same time was surprisingly difficult and I hadn't thought of making different sizes for each resolution at the time.
