There is also FRIENDS.ttf now, to add to your list of fonts to replace. Doing this manual font override will change all fonts in the game.

You could do it in a small addon.
Code:
local f =  CreateFrame("frame")

function f:ADDON_LOADED(addon)
    if addon ~= myaddonname then return end

    -- change the font for the damage text
    DAMAGE_TEXT_FONT = "PATH TO FONT"

    f:UnregisterEvent("ADDON_LOADED")
end

f:RegisterEvent("ADDON_LOADED")
That would change just the damage font. It gives you a little more control over what you are changing with the fonts. If you don't care about the font changing throughout the ui you just need to replace "Fonts\\FRIZQT__.TTF";

Close... You didn't actually set that function to be run when the event fires.

Lua Code:
  1. f:SetScript("OnEvent", function(self, event, addon)
  2.      f:ADDON_LOADED(addon)  --or, you know, just skip the middle-man and put the code here ;)
  3. end)

Though if you're just doing that when your addon loads, you can skip the frame creation, function calls, etc. and *just* do:
Lua Code:
  1. DAMAGE_TEXT_FONT = "PATH\\TO\\FONT"

I don't entirely remember which it is. Maybe skurri?
