by: Tekkub [More]
tekticles is a simple set of fonts, derived from ClearFont2. I only ever used one set of fonts from CF2 (the Calibri set), so I ripped CF2 down to it's bear ass and stripped off all the extra crap. This addon is what's left.

Friends frame.

This is for anyone who wants tekticles to skin the new Friends frame. Copy-paste into your config file, replacing the font with the one you need. The font names are pretty self-explanatory, but I commented them just in case.

Code:
	SetFont(FriendsFont_Normal,			  PIXEL, 10, "OUTLINE") --Friends frame names
	SetFont(FriendsFont_Small,			  PIXEL, 10, "OUTLINE") --Last online text
	SetFont(FriendsFont_Large,			  PIXEL, 10, "THICKOUTLINE") --Not really sure what this does, but it's set to fit in
	SetFont(FriendsFont_UserText,		          PIXEL, 10, "OUTLINE") --Real ID status text

This seems to be a great addon - providing the possibility to do exactly what I'm looking for. Problem is that I'm surviving on in-game configurability when it comes to addons - plowing through lua-codes is not my cup of tea at all. I've done some Googling after specific instructions for a code newbie like myself, but found nothing. Now, as a last hope, I'm throwing my fishing line into these waters.

What I want from this addon is one thing only - to change the font of the scrolling combat text. I would very much like all other text to have its default font.

I have found a font that I would like to use for the scrolling combat text; " PEPSI_pl.ttf " (ttf should be the right format to use if I'm not completely mistaken).

Can some kind soul please show me exactly what I need to change in the lua-file in order to make this happen - to change the SCT and to keep all other text default? I just can't wrap my head around the coding.

Thank you in advance for any help provided as well as for the addon even if I should never get to experience it myself!

Assuming this addon still works. Take the font you like "Pepsi.ttf" I think you said.

Rename it to exactly this:

Calibri.ttf

Then overwrite your cleverly disguised Pepsi.ttf (now Calibri.tff) on top of the one that is currently in the tekticles folder.

Then, in game, select Calibri as your font for SCT. The reality of it is that you're selecting PEPSI, but since you renamed it, it will show up as Calibri. This would be the easiest way to do what you're looking for. I hope this helped.

Anyone know how to get this mod to apply the font to the in-game focus frame?

*edit* nevermind, looks like it was bugged on Blizzard's end. It's fixed now.

thank you much for the update as a visually disabled player I find this addon or Minitype to work great as of 4.1, currently using tekticles of course, just jump into the lua code to adjust the font sizes for every aspect of the game again thank you so much for updating this simple font resizing addon.

I am finding a hard time to enlarge the font for talking to a npc, I've gone through the lua file & enlarged all the fonts available but the npc text in the window is still 10-12pt, but I don't see anywhere in the lua code for enlarging that particular font.

Maybe the ability to change the npc window text isn't included, not sure, I might just be missing something to change in the lua. If anyone knows what exactly in the lua to change to enlarge npc window text; it's not just talking to npc it's also quest text that's very small, feel free to pm or post here so I can change it, thanks.

EDIT: I just got
Code:
SetFont(QuestFont,                   ITALIC, 22, nil, 0.15, 0.09, 

0.04)
from the Minitype addon (which does work with 4.1 too, but I like this one as well, as it's more simple, not as much to enlarge...) & included it into the lua file around the quest area, & it enlarged the particular text shown below, course I put in a number for it to resize to, but it works

example below:

Hi, so i got a problémo that has been breathing down my neck forever-

-my chat font is set "outlinemonochrome" -(caps)
-when i log in, everything fine chat- outlined/monochromed
-if i toggle any addon pannel or the profession pane etc.. random interface windows, the chat loses its outline.
-now... i can /rl and that typically fixes it but on occasion not even that works, so i relog to fix it.

inserted the code below all over the lua in tekticles but to no avail
ChatFrame1:SetShadowColor(0, 0, 0, 0) -- 4th arg is alpha
ChatFrame1:SetShadowOffset(0, 0) -- x, y
ChatFrame1:SetSpacing(2)

any ideas on how to keep the font tagged outline/monochrome?
-would be much appreciated

I'm having one small issue with it.
My edit box in my chat frame, the text within it scales down far too much to the point I can't read it.
I'm using Prat for the chat so I went ahead and used the .Lua posted earlier to solve the overwriting of the chat but it doesn't fix my edit box issue. When I unload Tekticles the font to the edit box is fine.

The issue.


Somewhat along the lines of what I want but I wish for the same thing with Tekticles installed.


Help will be sincerely appreciated.

Will this need any updating for the patch coming out? I hope it works, as this is the only font addon I can find that works, as I'm legally blind & it's been a great help to me in viewing the game text.
