How do we use the new fonts?

    Are there new fonts implemented with the recent publish 66? If so, how do we use them?
    Would they work with the Copper_E or Stone_E skins?

    Reason I'm asking is, that I really have a hard time reading text on screen for some reason. It's always been like this for me on EC. Overhead text is hard to read, Journals are hard to read, and even damage #'s are hard to read. I don't know what it is, but that's how EC is to me. 2D was a bit easier, I admit.
    Other games are very easy to read text.

    I've tried various C_E fonts like bold, Names, under "Enhanced Client Default Fonts" and I dont' like them. They all are blurry.

    I couldn't get the runic or other fonts to work under Enhanced Client Chat Fonts section.

    Any suggestions for fonts?

    Not exactly, what Pub 66 has done is giove us the ability to import fonts into the client so long as it's a TrueType Font (*.ttf). So basically ANY font you could want as long as it's a True Type Font can be added.

    Would they work with the Copper_E or Stone_E skins?

    Yes, and they work really well. I have added in the Fonts folder and the needed XML file as well as a selection of fonts to work with in the latest releases. Right now, they have to be "hard coded" into the XML in the correct locations, but I'm certain we'll be getting an ingame selector up and running before too long.
