I will answer, but neither are relevant considering the setting was there, and Worked like a charm for 8 Months.
Dual 27’, but only play on one. i7 7700k / 32gb / 500ssd / 2x 3tb sata - It’a on the ssd, has always been there, had always worked.
I am not the only one with this issue, goto the game yourself, scale the hud down to .7 (which I had it at for 8 months) - It does nothing.
I think many are dismissing this issue as some kind of ancient monitor resolution issue, I assure you it is not.
The HUD was able to be scaled nice , then (using Safe Area setting) all the elements went into each corner, and the xp/gr bar nicely at the bottom.
It worked like this on Epic from the games release, and continued without issue on the Steam release. Then they release the Guardian Takedown, and removed the option. Leaving many of us with (ok maybe a tad hyperbolic) Massive Hud, affecting our ability to play the game.
The put the setting back a few patches ok, but it doesn’t work.
