Is it possible to force the global font size setting above the 108 dpi setting as the text is far too small on my 1080p 50" tv in my menus? And thefont settings only let me select upto 108 dpi from the list?

I want all fonts to be much larger if possible, spent days trying to get this free amikit linux distro running off my hard drive, after finaly accomplishing it, setting up a sound card and 5.1 surround system I now am stuck with a dpi range far below what I need to make menu titles appear the correct size to be legible sitting across the room, can someone help please, there is next to nothing online about this???

I'm on amipup amikit 8.5 free version, another thing is does it have games in this version and do I need to do something to have the amiga side working other than place a1200 kickstart file in the right place?

I read amikit x has 400 games with, it is that the same on the free 8.5 version too?

there is no global font settings, unfortunately. AmiKit is a custom compilation of many programs so the fonts have to be changed at many places, in various programs like MUI, VisualPrefs, System, etc. etc. But new AmiKit X supports easy switching between HD ready (720p) and FullHD (1080p) and that includes automatic enlarging of the fonts as well.

Regarding games, if you want to launch them via WHDLoad (the most compatible way) you need to install A500 and/or A1200 kickstarts. More info in AmiKit X Quick Guide here:

AmiKit X includes 400 programs including 15 pre-installed games:

You can download a package of 35 more games (ArtiGames) here:
