    First off I love the site and have been using it to help get started in map making
    so it felt like the right place to ask this question.

    I'm still new to hammer and making maps in general but one thing
    I've noticed is that the font hammer uses is very hard to read.
    I know this says 512x16 (I think..)

    But is there a way I can fix this so its easier to read?
    I have font edge smoothing on in xp which I know affects TF2
    itself, but it doesn't seem to matter in hammer.

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    It's an ATi issue. There is a fix but unfortunately it will cause issues when you want to play a Source game. You'll get used to it eventually.

    I have an ATI card, and this happens to me too.

    We should write Valve, it really is quite annoying.

    How exactly does it effect source games when you play and what is the fix in case some people would like to know anyways. =)

    It's easy to deal with once ya get used to it. After problems I had with nVidia and their amazingly crappy service that is easily the worst I've ever experienced, this one glitch in one app is more than tolerable to avoid ever giving money to nVidia again.

    Don't be silly. ATi still have the best cards at the moment and it's such a non-issue that'll you won't even notice it after a few days. :p
