So I found the HUD scaling option, which (a bit confusingly) is not in “Options”, but right on the game menu. It’s pretty big and obvious, I probably should have spotted it , but I wasn’t looking there. Why not in Options?
But anyway, I’ve got a couple of problems with it:
It doesn’t get remembered - you have to set it every time you start the game. Why? Can we have a fix please?
(And this may sound picky!) None of the options are “right”. “1” (the default) is far too small.
“2” on the other hand is far too big
and I won’t even talk about 3 and 4 that just about fill the entire screen!!
Maybe they work great at 8/16K or something, but not much use to me! Although it may sound picky (it does even to me) I really do not think either HUD1 or HUD2 (which dominates the screen and takes away from its beauty!) is right and it would be great to get it fixed
Is there someway, even hand editing the config, to set a HUD size kinda of midway between “1” and “2”. It would be good (but not essential) to set it precisely to find the right balance. Hopefully that would work for others with 3440x1440 displays.
(There is also a minor bug where if you choose the bigger HUD options and then go back to HUD1/HUD2 the right hand display is messed up, but it seems to fix itself the next time you open the HUD so it’s not a big deal.)

…so it seems I might not be alone thinking the options for 1440p are not ideal.
