Bug Description

Bold fonts in the UI (except for buttons and titles) are ugly, and not available in all fontsets.

We can't just get rid of them, because our current background image is too noisy, making non-bold fonts illegible.

I have started on a redesign - WIP screenshot attached with a non-bold, legible map description.

I am trying to adjust the images... here is my first attempt of a new background. It's less nervous.

This image is only for the background. For the buttons i have changed buttons.png to contain only transparent for better testing the coloring. Is the size of 512x512 px needed for the button image?

I'm afraid that this might have too much of an out-of focus effect on fullscreen.

Button images can certainly be smaller as long as they tile well.

How about you create a spin-off branch of the branch that's up for code review, so we can merge my version first and then have another version where we fiddle with the images some more?

A different approach.

Yes, that concept looks pretty good. Let's discuss this in a new bug though, because this one is Fix Committed now.
