Searched but found nothing on the forum relating to aisleriot... I'm getting a little older, but I don't think my vision has gone quite that bad yet. The card sizes (all decks) in Aisleriot are inordinately small compared to thegame window size. Install and run it. You'll see. Is there a config setting buried somewhere to increase/decrease the overall card image sizes? Seems there would have to be. If anyone knows where that is buried I'd appreciate the pointer.. if not, I'll go diggin' around for a fix.
edit: not sure if this is related..
