    Aha the actual problem is that custom skins override mod skins... until valve does something about this it's kind of pointless; unless flay includes an NS custom skin to use with NS.

    Hey wmd did you remember to delete your res_scheme.txt files and all the bitmap fonts before trying all this?

    does anyone know how to get two different colours in your font?

    i would like to have Tahoma with the inside of the letter white and the outside of it black, so it can be seen in both dark and light areas

    excuse my crappy english since im also swedish biggrin.gif

    Gah. sad.gif

    Can't manage to change my in-game font for say text, say_team text and on the piemenu... I run NS in 800*600 for fps issues, and that ugly bold arial (i think its arial) is way too big, when people talk too much i got the text right on my crosshair wich is not good. Some long text like "Unlock next ability (1)" on the piemenu is too big for the nodes too, less annoying, but i would like to change it, if possible.

    I tried everything i could think of; changing the TrackerScheme.res file in steam default skin, in a steam custom skin, in the /nsp/resource folder.. no luck. I tried to delete (rename in fact) my res_sheme.txt files, and also removed the gfx/vgui/fonts folder... still no luck. confused.gif

    It only screw the size of the pie menu itself (but not the text), and scoreboard fonts. But i can't change my team_say and say font size no matter what i modify.

    I'm probably doing something wrong, but i've no idea what so.. i'm asking here. Can someone clearly explain how to change the the font for say and say_team text?

    [beg] Please.

    Any help would be appreciated, thanks [/beg]

    Actually, this guide is a bit out-dated.
    Now in 3.0 NS uses 4 files called "font_arial.dat, font_arial.spr, font_arialsmall.dat, font_arialsmall.spr".
    You have too use a special program that was released to Constellation-Members only, or edit the files in some unknown program wink.gif

    Ahhh thanks! smile.gif

    I found the program in the constie forum and created a new .spr and .dat, and it's working perfectly both for say, team_say and the piemenu. I wonder why the program was given to consties only, but luckily i'm one of those.

    I'll "release" the fonts i made in this customisation forum, so all those non-constie lowres users can see their crosshairs again! tounge.gif

    NS is using another system since 3.0 was released, it depends on sprites and .dat files.
    You can try to edit them yourself but it'll be a pain in the arse, there is a program out there that was released for Consties only, you could try to get ahold of that.

    So lemme get this straight, they release an easy way to change the font for paid donation people only?

    So um, what about the rest of us that are stuck in small resolutions that have a hard time playing thanks to the huge text?

    Yes. I asked in the font tool release thread (constie forum) if i could re-distribute the program a while ago, got no official answer, so i took it as a "no".
