    I hadn’t time to look in depth but it looks like a resolution matter. By the way there were no issue on the pts a couple of days ago

    I get weird font artifacting with an eGPU on 1x res. Not entirely distracting, but combined with this mess of a client one can only sigh so much.

    I'm getting the same thing, but for me it started after updating to Mojave 10.14.15

    What is your system and in game resolutions set to?

    Changing your resolution in game may help with the blurry font text you're experiencing.

    Hi @ZOS_BillE

    It is set to 1680x1050 (currently my default res for mac)

    Cant set it to higher and I dont want to lower it.. it was working perfectly before :/

    Switching to fullscreen helps, but still every pixel is moving...

    I have the same on my Mac. Changing resolution helps but this needs a fix.

    Yup.

    I’m a big fan of distressed fonts in print, where they really work, but not onscreen where they are simply nausea inducing

    Let’s hope that ZOS pull their fingers out of their crown store pie and fix this fast.

    Probably they dont even care, like with FPS issues

    I am experiencing this issue also. It is not just fonts that are affected, but other in-game textures too (e.g. borders, skill icons). It occurs at all resolutions, and despite disabling all add-ons.
    There were no issues before Mojave 10.14.5 update.

    I hope this can be fixed soon, it is completely nauseating and has caused me to stop playing temporarily.

    I get this also since latest OS update. It's not unplayable by any stretch but a fix would be awesome!

    I updated the OS yesterday and am getting this problem today. Yesterday it was all fine, today after updating I get the above problems.

    After today's ESO update my update on this ...

    ... which is just to say that unfortunately nothing has changed. The text display is still broken, or rather something is wrong in displaying the font: The "holes" in the characters actually flicker, they aren't completely static.

    Really annoying if one used to use smaller font sizes (as I did). Text now needs a lot of "guessing" or huge font sizes.

    I am not sure if this is a ESO or a macOS issue, still I hope that someone more technically minded is working on this.

    Ok, now it's been 2 weeks with this issue that clearly started with Elsweyr. Already 2 patches released and no improvements at all.
    No official feedback here on the forum and no feedback on the ticket I opened. Is there still someone in the place ?

    Looks like we will miss Murkmire-bugs feedback, which was already bad. I look forward to the next DLC release for Bugs 3.0 upgrades

    After playing yesterday and today with it this is a worse problem than I thought for me. I'm now getting headaches from reading anything in game or even my eyes skimming over things. I can feel it starting generally within a few minutes of starting. I try to limit myself by just listening to the quests and not reading them but it only helps so much. Until this gets fixed I don't think I'll be able to play much at all.

    I have to say, it seemed minor at first but it really causes my eyes to hurt after playing for 30 mins or so. I hope it can be fixed soon.

    @ZOS_GinaBruno Thank you so much for the update! I saw the post on reddit acknowledging the other issues but this one wasn't mentioned. I'm glad it is being worked on.

    Good to know it’s being looked at.

    It’s not a gamebreaker, but it’s bloody ugly and adds to the impression that ZOS don’t really care about the Mac or do any kind of testing on it.

    Let’s hope it’s fixed soon.

    Anyone tested this after 5.0.8?

    Just opened it up after updating. The flickering font pixels still exist.

    So You (ZoS) change something to the worse for OSX players and instead of reverting the faulty code you go to Apple to fix it?

    Isn't it better to do things right BEFORE going live??

    I’m starting to think that all these FPS issues and rendering problems are related to apple changes to drivers, that is why last osx update broke rendering...
