I wear glasses while I play. They should really start having 'large print' games, since the gaming population is totally getting older.

Maybe they'll do giant controllers too with silver dollar sized buttons. I like it.

Can you choose another crosshair? That damn point is way too small.

You can't on a normal TV, it won't even give you the option lol

This is my pet peeve atm, another colour would be good enough, the games quite sunny and white on that even with the brightness down, i still manage to lose track of it occasionally lol

Change it to 'Complex' and it gives a better cross hair for each weapon, it's under 'Display'.

It didn't change any of my controls when I switched to complex.

You might of hit left by ascendent when hovering over controls, it's pretty sensitive. Just change it back to 'Standard' or whatever you had it on and yeah it doesn't help that much but it is a little more noticeable.

Yea i had hit on alternative by accident. Came back to post as i just got in a gunfight after switched back to simple and it was still bad controls.... Oops, my bad :angel:

Off to test again. Does it actually change anything else that you have noticed?

The extra circle should help a bit for my issue of just losing the dot to the background a bit. Have googled a bit but nothing much up and the GTA V Online Manual for iPhone is utter crap tbh.

Getting a bit offtopic now aswell

Tube TV *snigger*

Forced upgrade here or buy a seperate box for digital was years ago here (uk), I wont be surprised if the connections on consoles in the future soon lose the ability to use scart, some had composite i know but usually that was for the more expensive tv's so if you had one of those you probably upgraded already anyway.

I agree that some of the in game prompts are to small. I have a 60" plasma and only notice this with Rockstar games. It's not a major problem but I wish they would make the writing a bit bigger.

It was the same in the USA back whenever that was. My old tv had finally broke down before the official digital switch so I had to get another within a year of that switch. HDTVs were still too spendy at the time here so I ended up with another standard one that had the built in digital converter. Lucky too because those dumb converter boxes were a cheap piece of crap (that they charged $50 for) and the extra one we ended up getting went into my room and it constantly freezes to the point where you have to unplug it and it won't hold a signal for nothing. The built in one at least gets me 1 channel after the switch that is mostly a stable signal. Since I had to replace mine such a short time ago and mine works perfectly still, there's no reason to waste money to upgrade when I don't have the money to begin with.

Guess I'm stuck with the small text on games for now. At least I know the cause. I was thinking it was just the game creators making it so tiny for some dumb reason -_- I'm leaving the topic now. I don't get to get my copy of GTA V until Christmas so I don't want to run into spoilers :P
