Is it really impossible to change menu fonts? I know from Stealthsnake's color theme tutorial that you can change the font color through hex editing MainMenu.const. I tried editing MainMenu.apt and changed both references of Albertus MT to the new font name, but I just get a game.dat crash when the main menu is supposed to come up.

BTW, I don't know how well known this is, but you CAN change the font of the in-game notification box through INI editing. (The little box that pops up when heroes arrive and die.)

hmm download the mod as see how they put the new mod in.

i have seen a ini\font thing somewhere.

data\ini\fontsubstitution.ini

data\ini\fontsettings.ini

I don't have the faintest idea what the "add file" thing would be though :(

It's not a simple INI edit, I've already tried that. :) That is the way to change the notification box font, though.

Changing menu fonts is possible via the fontsubstitution.ini file. I recently needed to do this for my Triplehead mod, which had the menus looking like this:

Posted Image

I added the following to the bottom of fontsubstitution.ini:

FontSubstitution "Albertus MT"
	Size 8 = 8 "Albertus MT"
	Size 10 = 10 "Albertus MT"
	Size 12 = 12 "Albertus MT"
	Size 14 = 14 "Albertus MT"
	Size 16 = 16 "Albertus MT"
	Size 18 = 18 "Albertus MT"
	Size 20 = 20 "Albertus MT"
End

Albertus MT is the default font, which I did not want to change. I just needed to restrict the font to a maximum point size. Using the code above, any engine call to a point size greater than Albertus 20 would be replaced with Albertus 20, and all the other point sizes would be returned with minimal interpolation. The result:

Of course the font can be replaced as well. Here are 2 shots of Albertus replaced with Hebrew:

I hope this helps.

I added this at the bottom of the codes

FontSubstitution "Albertus MT"
	Size 8 = 8 "Ringbearer"
	Size 10 = 10 "Ringbearer"
	Size 12 = 12 "Ringbearer"
	Size 14 = 14 "Ringbearer"
	Size 16 = 16 "Ringbearer"
	Size 18 = 18 "Ringbearer"
	Size 20 = 20 "Ringbearer"
End

And it looked like this!

Amazing! Thanks, GeneralAdmission!

This would be a nice addition to the article section of the T3A site if you're interested in writing one, GeneralAdmission. :D

I guess that for computers that doesn't have that font, wouldn't see the font...
However, if it would go to a "default" font, or not show up very readable at all, I do not know :D

would probably be best to have the font included in the mod's installer ;)
Or zip file atleast :D
