I was using 1024*768 at my 17' CRT.Recently I try to use 1280*960, but i found fonts in the game become thiner. What's the problem?

Really asking mate?

Well, this is a common result of increasing the resolution - objects become smaller due to the increase in pixels.

There generally no games that "auto-size" fonts, though there may be ways to achieve this (I don't personally know how to do so in IL-2).

Windows will allow one to have larger fonts to help compensate for higher resolutions.

Yeah, this is something that's overlooked in most games. If you ever get a hankering to run jedi knight 1, the resolution will be limited by how small you want the messages and hud to appear.
