Font of chat & other items is WAY too large

Here's what it looked like before... ... a433f6.png

Here's what it looks like today...

As you can see, both images are in 1280x960 resolution but the font on the second image is a lot bigger. This only started happening today; it was working fine yesterday. I checked the font ini's in DATA, and they were not modified. Then I uninstalled, removed the Freelancer folder, and did a clean install. The problem was still there.

Help plz!

One thing I've noticed is that if you pick a resolution larger than 1024x768 you'll get that font problem. Did you try resetting to something like 800x600 then running the size back up again?

Didn't work, still abnormally large at both resolutions.

Has to be asked - did you try the solutions presented in this thread?

Yes, I have tried those, and I am still having this problem.

Try reinstalling the MS XML stuff (msxml3.msi in Freelancer folder) and see if that helps.
