The text for kills etc on my screen is microscopic for the resolution/scaling settings I am using, anything I can do to rectify this? (Level info mod)

LevelInfo, PlayerInfo and AmmoInfo all change size with the scaling settings provided in the GZDoom options. To get there, go to HUD Settings, then Scaling Options. Inside there are two options you can use. The user interface scale will change the size (as well as all HUD elements) so long as the messages override below is set to the default. If it's not, then you can change only the text size using that messages override.

Yeah I tried this already but this makes all the other text on screen go so big I can barely see the screen lol. Ive mnaged to change the font to a bigger font which worked, however the kills text and numbers now overlap :(

Could you make a screenshot of what this looks like? The text should scale at pretty much the same size as pickup messages. As for the font issue, the add-ons use customized fonts for spacing and positioning - just plugging in a random one will have all kinds of visual problems like the one you're experiencing.

Hi! I'm loving the levelinfo addon a lot! But I was wondering, is there a way to make it so that it didn't show items? I'd like to see just kills and secrets

I wasn't planning on adding any new options, but this is an easy change and could be useful for those who don't care about item pickups. It's available as a toggle in the latest version of LevelInfo.

Hi! I'm working on a tweaked version of this hud:
https://www.doomworld.com/forum/post/2474092

I'd like to integrate your LevelInfo component into it.
Would this be ok with you? Even if I were to share it publicly?

I'd give proper credits to you, of course!
