Malsumis® Font Changer  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 0.9b
by: Chobaka [More]

Malsumis® WoW Font Changer v0.9b


Note: it still works (patch 6.0.3), if I am not too lazy I might update both the Windows and the Java version, using newer technologies as JavaFX and .net 4 visual sweets.

1. What is it ?

A simple program to change the default WoW Fonts(that include the main UI font, the damage font, the mail and quest log fonts, Player, NPCs, Guild names font, etc).

If people show interest in it I will continue improving and developing it.

Please comment and give feedback.

Thank you.

2. How to use it ?

If you don't want to install Java, simply extract the windows version and run Malsumis® WoW Font Changer.exe(works with Windows XP/Vista/7-tested).
Then follow the instructions shown on the screen.

If you are not using Windows OS, or you just like the Java version more and have Java installed on your PC simply extract the Cross-platform Java version and start Malsumis Font Changer.jar(works with Windows XP/Vista/7-tested, Mac(to run this on a Mac, open /Applications/Utilities/Java Preferences, and drag Java SE 6 to the top of the bottom list) and Linux-not tested). Then you should get a warning that its trying to access your file system, you should allow that.
Then follow the instructions shown on the screen.


3. Who made it and where can I get new versions from?


Atm it is only hosted on WoWInterface.com, Curse.com. I don't take any responsibility for files with the same name downloaded by a different locations!
Scoty <The Devastating Throng> @ EU-Neptulon.

*Note that the program can't access fonts in the ...\WINDOWS\Fonts folder! If you want to use a font from there, simply copy it somewhere else.

Always up for new challenges, I will see what I can do about it.

Edit(04 July 2009):

To all Mac and Linux users I haven't forgot my promise, I am working on Java version of this program.

Uh for mac users at the moment: (quoted from posts on the WoW Main Messageboards)

1. Make a "Fonts" folder in your "World of Warcraft" install location.

2. Find four different fonts, or create four copies of the font file of your choice, place them in the above folder, and rename them to the following names:
● FRIZQT__.ttf (the main UI font: NPCs names; buffs, etc)
● ARIALN.ttf (the normal number font)
● skurri.ttf (the 'huge' number font)
● MORPHEUS.ttf (Mail, Quest Log font)

3. Put those renamed fonts in the Fonts folder
4. Log in. Enjoy.

Now.... the first time i tried this i used the Emblem font from the SharedMedia file and that was back before 3.1. It changed the default EVERYTHING and was awesome, no crazy extra resources used up.

Anyway, the second time i did this (about a week ago) all i got was a black login screen with no fonts, just the outlines for all the buttons and input areas. But that time i used Arial from my mac's font folder.

In any case, i hope this post helps those who do not have access to this app.

XD

Edit: yeah i just tried again with Emblem again and it works. it seems arial is not one of the TTF fonts. haha. this still works.

The Java version is cross platform, which means it can be used on Mac OS.

It is worth noting that the Java version is incompatible with J2SE 5.0. To run this on a Mac, open /Applications/Utilities/Java Preferences, and drag Java SE 6 to the top of the bottom list.

Thumbs down Don't download!!

Sorry to say this, but after a near heart attack after executing this addon it nearly deleted all of installed fonts!! My day is ruined because I have to install all the fonts (about 1000) again and I really hope to get them running until tomorrow. I need them to work.

So my suggestion to all who like to use this addon is: Don't download! Don't use the .exe-file!

The idea behind this addon looks interesting, but it doesn't work properly (at last for me)!

This is not possible. First of all this program can't access the .../Windows folder so its not possible to modify any files in this folder. Second thing is that it does NOT delete anything, it simply copies(replaces if file with that name already exists) the fonts in the specified folder.

Anyway if you could tell me what you did EXACTLY, so I can try to reproduce this bug(if it even exists).

For now this program has more than 3k downloads(on this site and curse) and none reported such thing, so I highly doubt it is even possible.

Maybe noone else uses Adobe font manager and font doctor and I followed exactly the instructions given at the application setup.

It wasn't intended to blame you, sorry! I was nervous and upset, because it happend as described in my last post. I luckily have all the fonts back and it only costs me a day, nothing more. I'm sure you do a good job and I respect that you share this helpful tool for free. If I'm the only one who had this issue it is bad luck.

So to return to the game Default you would delete the Fonts Folder?

hi there, i used this program and it worked flawlessly on all my characters except my shaman, for some reason the chat text always sticks to some random font, no matter what font addon i use i cant make it change. I have tried deleting the WTF folder to no avail. Any ideas?
