laFont  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 1.9
by: bloodtear [More]

laFont

What does it do?
laFont is a simple and lightweight Addon (~5,0kb ingame) wich changes the default damage and zone font to a custom one.

Aren't there a lot of those Addons out there?
Yes and no. A lot of Addons change the Damagetext or the Zonetext, but I do not know any Addon that does both.
laFont combines both, change the Damage- and Zonetext. Why should I use two different Addons instead of one Addon?

To Do
- Add default colors
- Create ingame config
- Make the Addon more easy to configurate in gerneral (.lua-crap)

How To
1. Download laFont

2. Copy the .rar to your WoW Addons folder

3. Unrar.

4. Open the new folder and copy&paste example.lua

5. Rename the copy to your charname

6. Open yourcharname.lua and edit it like its seen on the screenshot

7. Now open laFont.toc and edit like shown

8. Open game and play

FAQ: Quastion and Answer!
Q: Where is the config?
A: The config is at the top of the .lua-file. Perhaps there will be more options in future days...

Q: How can I change the Font?
A: To change the font simply download a font you like (e.g. www.1001freefonts.com). Go to '/Interface/Addons/laFont/' and rename 'Font.ttf' to 'Fontold.ttf'. Rename your font into 'font.ttf' and copy it into the folder '/Interface/Addons/LaFont/'. Now there should be two fonts. 'fontold.ttf' (the original laFont-font) and 'font.ttf' (the font you want to have). Log In. Finished.

Q: Will you add more features like an ingame config in the future?
A: Yes, I think I will, but I also think there will be a laFont light and a heavy version (heavy will be with ingame config).

How can I report Bugs?
Just leave a comment or contact me ingame @ Lashaa(Mannoroth[EU])

Credits
I would like to thank Xzatly (xDamageFont) and abomb93 (aZoneText) for their Addons. Their work inspired me to do this. Thank you guys!

you could prob just do a trial account to test your addon. since on a trial i think you can see text damage.


anyways, great addon concept

I'll post an "How-To" in pictures in a few seconds, I dont have time for a video right now. In fact there seems to be a bug with zone-text, will have a look at it after holiday.

dude make a video, i followed your change font instructions step by step and it doesn't work.



when i opened up example u have a few "charname" do i actually have to put each character name in for it to work?


cause im in game and i've tried it a few times i still see same boring tall skinny font numbers


.....................................................................................................
fyi you don't have to consider my suggestion. if you do take your time no rush, if you do i want no credit for it. i'm only contributing.

Well, easy answer.

Simply open lafont.toc with any editor and add a line beneath "example.lua". thats it.
will see if i will upload a light version without config and profiles today.

I read the readme.txt, I renamed "Example.lua" into "Zombier.lua".
"Then open the .lua and follow the instructions.
Now open the .toc and add the new lua at the bottom of the file."
I opened the .lua but didnt see any instructions, and whats the meaning of "add the new lua at the bottom of the file"?
thanks for someone can answer me

i installed the mod and followed the directions. it changed the "zone text" and the "my floating combat text." but it did not change the "target's floating combat text." in other words, it did not change the combat text above the mob im attacking.

how can i change that text as well?

i am on a mac and i use LUI's mod suite compilation.
