Zovs -> Font changes (3/25/2021 9:56:26 PM)

During playtesting I modified the default fonts, they work fine on my system, I am running in 4k. They are subtle changes just a little bit like the old war game fonts from the 70's, kind of.

Thanks a lot for that. I would be very interested in this. I am running 2240x1440 resolution and the text appears to be a bit bundled at times

Here you go. Make a back up copy of your GuiFonts.json (lives in Matrix Games\Gary Grigsby's War in the East 2\Dat).

Also, you'll have to install the Hack font its free to download.

Not sure if Avenir Next LT Pro is on Windows or if I downloaded it or not.

Thank you very much for the prompt reply. I really appreciate it [:)]

Your welcome.




Zovs -> RE: Font changes (3/26/2021 11:35:30 AM)

Updated the file.

The small unit (zoomed out) font was incorrect and also corrected the Time/AP/Turn font.





Kokubokan -> RE: Font changes (3/31/2021 7:24:42 PM)

Hello Zovs.

Can you fix it?

Thanks for your work!



Did you try to run a high DPI hotfix? https://www.matrixgames.com/forums/tm.asp?m=4991284





Kokubokan -> RE: Font changes (4/1/2021 5:33:00 AM)

Thanks, Helpless.

The problem only happens with the Zov's font mod installed. My DPI is 100%.

This partial screenshot appears in the Zov's first post.

Cheers!

Some offset are tied to font sizes. Try to increase size of font id #2 by 1px

"FONT_SMALL" : { "active": "true", "id": "2", "name": "Tahoma", "size": "10", "format": "", "file": "", "desc" : "Small Font - Common Game Font" },




Kokubokan -> RE: Font changes (4/1/2021 3:17:10 PM)

Hello, Pavel.

Works great decreasing the font #2 size by 1 px.

In this mod, the font type of #1, #2 and #7 is "Segoe UI" not "Tahoma".

Final result:

"FONT_SMALL": { "active": "true", "id": "2", "name": "Segoe UI", "size": "9", "format": "", "file": "", "desc": "Small Font - Common Game Font" },

Thank you very much!




Zovs -> RE: Font changes (4/1/2021 4:52:20 PM)

Kokubokan,

Thanks for fixing my font file!

Attached is the fix.




sandman2575 -> RE: Font changes (4/1/2021 8:48:52 PM)

@Erik, Helpless and co.:

Any chance we could get a WitE2 fonts 'key' the way we did for WitE: https://www.matrixgames.com/forums/tm.asp?m=2645378




Helpless -> RE: Font changes (4/1/2021 8:53:43 PM)

Don't know what fonts "key" is, but GuiFonts.json contains all the font info - all ids and descriptions.




Zovs -> RE: Font changes (4/1/2021 10:16:01 PM)

I think he meant when you first did it in WITE 1 you had a screenshot with the numbers of the fonts in them, I donít think I created that image.

Itís not really needed just look at the text part it tells you what the fonts are used for then you just plug in and test.

Avenir Next LT Pro looks much better than Tahoma on my Mac (WINE - Crossover)

Yes, I am running on mac os and using VMWare Fusion for my Win 10, and that font does look good.

A technical question:

The file FontConfig.txt (curiously mentions WiTW) has more or less the same info of the GuiFonts.json

Is it necessary to change anything in the .txt file when changing fonts, or only in the.json file ?

Regards
