ieoFontMagic  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 1.1a
by: Balkeep [More]
ieoFontMagic is just a little amazing addon that doesn't mess with your UI too much, though makes it a lot easier to read. Personally i came to conclusion that using default font for WoW is a bad thing to do with high UIScale (0.64). IMO the best font for that high UIScale is Prototype. But then blizzard scrolling combat text picks it up also and IMO it just looks huge and clunky as damage font. So i came to solution by making this little amazing add-on that just changes damage font and that of the scrolling combat text (like "Entering combat" and such). You can pretty much just check the screen shot =)).

You can use different font if you like by replacing the file font.ttf in the add-on folder.

Its very lightweight actually and uses like 1Kb of memory or even less =P

an ingame feat would be awesome. there is a lot of editing noobs like me. i'm been playing for a long time but all i have to edit is word pad but hopefully i can figure it out XD

if you're interested heres a few screen shots of characters ive been working on http://s1224.photobucket.com/albums/ee366/pwnbusiness/

i'm working out bugs and such. but yeah i have been using "Nice Damage" addon which i like but it seems like a few words have been missed spelled. so i've been looking for a new font addon.

anyways, i'm working towards making sweet videos for youtube cause i've gotten a lot of responses from randoms saying i should cause of my ability to play the game.

anyways, if i can figure this out i'll prob use ieofontmagic and include it when i do a UI Setup/addon package.


anyways, ty for this addon and keep up the good work. cya

And i might make ingame config later on those making use of sharedmedia fonts available. But for now its just a future plan =P

Probably you are right on this. Though from what was made in TukUI i made a conclusion that those settings affect font scaling somehow. I'm not sure how it works though =)))

I like it ,but it seems didn't work anymore!
tbh it always did work but im going to update it now for obvious reasons ahaha.

OMG this is what i've been looking for ALL along! thanks so much, i wanted font that changes damage you do, damage you take, heals you do, and heals you take. this does EXACTLY THAT
Exactly, when i was writting it i was thinking the same =) I did some research, looked how it was made in clearfont and gooddmgfont and a couple of others and came up with this one =) As far as i know Tukz took it as a base for his own similar addon implemented in Tuk UI, wich i just like immensely =)

Hey there,

Your mod is pretty cool... well, the idea is pretty cool but the mod itself seems not to work anymore. only the CombatTextFont:SetFont(foobar) stuff seems to work, although the font-scaling is pretty ugly. Is it still possilbe to get this one running somehow?
