i just restarted the game, downloaded the update and now i have issues with the UI scaling.


I use a 4k monitor with 125% scaling in windows.

The game usually runs at 2560x1440 (unsure what scaling was set to) "Game Window" mode.


Now after the update, with the same settings, the window and the text is much smaller.


To check, if i've f* up the settings, i deleted all files in "C:\Users\username\Documents\Black Desert", started the game and reloaded the settings (Settings Archive) but the window/text is still way smaller than usuall.


To double check, a friend of mine, who plays also on a 4k monitor with 125% windows scaling, "Game Window" mode but "maximised" window also restarted the game to do the update and had the same issue*.


Anyone else who has this or a similar issue?



* "same issue" = text is much smaller, quest/chat windows, skill/cd slots are moved

Issue solved ... for some reason in the BlackDesert64.exe properties, the High DPI scaling override was activated.

After unchecking it everything is as it was/should be

Thanks. This helped me solve my problem, but it was the other way around. I had to enable high DPI override to fix my issue. I have set it to application. My Windows is also at 125% but 4K.
