Hello, I've recently come into possession of a new laptop and with a slightly smaller screen (1366x768) the UI Scale seems far too big and intrusive.

I appreciate the added realism (I cant imagine tank commanders themselves see too well), but is there a way to scale the UI below 1x? 

 

If I have posted this to the wrong forum I do apologise, if there's one better suited I can take my post there :)

The build in scaling only works for higher res. As in making it scale up above 1080p etc, and not shrinking it for lower screens. What graphics card do you have? If it's an Nvidia card on it, you can use DSR via the Nvidia control panel. Basically giving your 1366x768 montior a chance to upscale to 1080p even.

@OP WG did a really poorly implemented UI scaling tbh, they only took larger screen resolutions into consideration regretfully and only with up scaling. While down scaling would also benefit large and small resolutions.

 

There is one thing you can do as a user, that is edit WoT's preferences.xml and change or add in the line:

Block Quote

 <interfaceScale>    1.0    </interfaceScale> <!-- lower this number to scale down UI scale -->

 

Important notice!

WoT's new 'damage indicators' will stop working if you go below values of 1.0. If you like the knowing from which direction you are shot, then better leave this at 1.0, if not than ~0.8-0.86 will give a okay scaled down UI with little text distortion.
