For those using custom fonts, you may have noticed that not all fonts from the /fonts/ directory are loaded at the time the game is loaded. This plugin let’s you place the fonts into the /fonts/ directory and then load them as the game starts.


Introduction & Instructions


For those using custom fonts, you may have noticed that not all fonts from the /fonts/ directory are loaded at the time the game is loaded. This plugin let’s you place the fonts into the /fonts/ directory and then load them as the game starts.

To use this plugin, follow these instructions:

The plugin parameters ‘Font Filenames’ and ‘Font Families’ have to be filled out in correspondence to each other. The order of each font entry must match each other’s. For example:

Font Filenames: cc-wild-words.ttf, ds-pixel-cyr.ttf

Font Families: CC Wild Words, DS Pixel Cyr

In the above example, ‘cc-wild-words.ttf’ will use ‘CC Wild Words’ as its font family and ‘ds-pixel-cyr.ttf’ will use ‘DS Pixel Cyr’. For the plugins that use font names such as YEP’s Message Core, you will be using the Font Family name instead of the filename.


Font Downloads


If you would like to use the fonts shown in the video above, you can download them here!

Place them inside of your game’s /fonts/ folder.
