I have following this topic and now this has been solved, I can publish my OT reply.
Tonym a warm welcome to this forum. I suppose you use glasses, just try also an spectable made for reading on your monitor. Just go to your locale optical discounter an ask for information about computer glasses. I got my for €19,- complete at the local Specsavers, never did see so sharp the details on my 27” monitor. My cheapished hardware investment and I’m a better shooter now.

I’ve returned to WOFF after a multi-year hiatus. I’m obviously older. My eyesight is worse. And I can’t hit much of anything. So I know the problems us seniors face.

But then it hit me! On my old rig I wasn’t running at a 1900 resolution. I used to run at 1600. So I lowered the resolution, in both WOFF and on my home screen, to 1600. Voila! Everything is bigger! I can see again!

So that’s my recommendation. Lower the resolution! Make those bandits look bigger! Moreover, I suspect it takes a load off the graphics card.

Another suggestion I can toss in for those with less than ideal eyesight: turn on Dots! At higher resolution it's actually harder for me to pick up enemy aircraft in the air - and as a simulation FAQ once put it, a monitor cannot replicate human eyesight (maybe 4K but this was written back in the 90s so...) so the dots actually correct for the failings of the hardware (or at least that's what I like to tell myself!). Should make picking up targets a bit easier.
