I'm wondering how one can change the font that is displayed in multiplayer chat. I know this is possible, I've seen on screenshot and the like. Can anyone tell me how to do this?

You can modify the TGA files. [COLOR=DarkOliveGreen]// assets1.pk3 -> fonts/*.tga[/COLOR]

Alright, I've attempted to change this a few times but I have no idea what I'm doing. I'm not exactly skilled at editing images and the like. Can someone tell me exactly how to do it or pass me something they've already done?

I have no idea if you have to make / edit fontdat file, but for the TGA image: Open it in PhotoShop or something image-manipulator program, which can edit Alpha layers. Switch to alpha, and you'll see, that there are the letters (black backgground, white letters). You have to re-write them :D

Yeh, I checked the alpha channels and what not. I suppose I'll just have to go over slowly and replace each letter with the font I want? At least I'm in no rush. Cheers!

Rather than that, you can use a program that Wudan created called JAFont to turn a Truetype Font (.ttf) into a font readable by JA.

Not sure how much longer that link will be there, but it's been part of the OJP repository for years.

Alright, I'm looking over this and I have no idea how to use it. The readme isn't exactly detailed and I may not be the best when it comes to this sort of thing. Can you tell me how to use it?

Extract it, open CMD, and 'cd' to the dir, or drag in the bin/JAFont.exe. Usage: JAfont Example: jafont -create verdana.ttf 16 anewhope

JAFont is the exe name. There are also three fonts for test (arial, tahoma, verdana). You can see the usage/example info by just executing JAFont.exe from cmd.
