Moving the status area into a sub-window (for tile users) might be the easiest fix. Otherwise, it's big tile/double tile, all that crap.
Well, the font-size solution takes care of all the big tile/double tile/triple tile crap. Hmmm, I would agree that that the status area now takes too much space.. I guess I will have to shift my plans for world domination and finally work on using the full space of the screen for the map ( as an option! ).

As a side note, I've gotten item descriptions to work properly, and of course, as usual I am getting sidetracked. Since I am doing the descriptions of mushrooms, I noticed that most of them just aint worth it. So I am adding to most mushrooms healing powers and timed protections ( cure confusion will guard the player from confusion for 50 turns etc. )

Once I have mushrooms done, 7 more to go , of which 2 will require a new timed effect, I will focus on better usage of the screen real estate.
