FFXIV:ARR - Scaling the User Interface elements on PS3Follow

PS3 version UI elements and Menus are scalable!

Go into the Keybind menu and look for the one that is "Change Window Size" It is the very last option under Keybinds > System tab. Keybind that to something easy. I use Q.


Now open up the HUD customization screen, active the element you want smaller, and press your keybind.

It toggles through three sizes: medium > large > small. With medium being the default. You can scale all of the hUD elements such as:

- Mini-map
- Duty List
- HP Bar / Exp Bar
- Action / Item Help
- The Cross-bar

You can also scale things like the AH window and other things that only pop up temporaily, but are not on the HUD customization window. It is very helpful to shrink your Character, Armory Chest and Inventory screens so more can fit on the screen at once.

Just select them and hit your "Change Window Size" keybind. It works on all Menu windows such as:

- Crafting Log
- Crafting progress display screen

- Duty Finder
- Abilities and Traits
- Hunting Logs

- System Menu
- Character Setting Menu
- System Setting Menu.
- Keybind Menu

Pretty much the only element it does not work on is the chat box, as it is not a HUD element or a Menu.

I hope this helps It make PS3 life a ton easier.

Just for any PC users, your default key binding is Ctrl+Home.

pretty sure the default button for resizing elements on the ps3 is R3 ... says it when you are in the hud customization mode. and it works for all windows when you are out of hud customization as well, any window you are focused on :) so no need to bind it to a key but this is an awesome overview of the feature, its great, im super happy they did this :)

Sweet. I'm glad this one is separate from the other so that the title alone will inform those that are unaware.

Thanks to Wint's Thread about the mutliple monitors I finally hooked up a second monitor to supplement the big screen. When I want to craft and watch TV (Attack on Titan is awesome!), I put FFXIV into windowed mode and slide it to the small screen. Unfortunately the resolution is not identical, so I had to do a custom size, which shift all your HUD elements.

In the end I just shrunk every single thing to small. Since at this point I know what icon is what just by where it is, it a big improvement.
