I wonder if it is possible to change the system font The Call of Cthulhu and what should I do, if I would like the fonts used would be Armenschrift reminiscent of those typewriters.

Yes, it would require an extension that registers new font resources for all the fonts you want to replace.

You can probably make a copy of the Dungeon Theme in the extensions folder to get started.
* Unzip the dungeon theme EXT file into a folder.
* Rename the folder to something else (i.e. CoC Typewriter)
* Update the definition.xml file to the correct name.
* Update the db.xml file to remove stuff you don't want to replace (i.e. remove all the frame replacements).

Or have a look at the extensions here that specifically change fonts: https://www.fantasygrounds.com/forums/showthread.php?25600-Using-FG-at-the-tabletop&p=227962&viewfull=1#post227962

Then go through the CoC ruleset and find the name of the font you want to change and create a similar extension.

I could generate the extension that changes the default font of the Call of Cthulhu for a font that resembles typewriter thanks to friends here the always solicitous forum.But I still have a question, how do I leave the exclusive content or better usable only in Ruleset Call of Cthulhu?

In extension.xml

<ruleset>
<name>CallOfCthulhu</name>
<minrelease>2</minrelease>
</ruleset>

I generated these two files and put them to work only in the ruleset of Call of Cthulhu.
CoC-Logo changes the GM icon
CoC-Typewriter changes the font for a like typewriter.

But I am not able to generate an extension that allows you to add a picture in the middle of the screen (decal).

I would like to know how to share these extensions created

Thanks for the help given by all, I downloaded an extension in fg-con that lets you change the background and edited to become "exclusive" Call of Cthulhu, now would be to know how to share.

Here are the extensions created with the support of you of the Fantasy Grounds community, hope you like and with time I create to change the overall look of Ruleset.

One last question, but this covers not only the Ruleset Call of Cthulhu, but all rulesets ...
I would like to chat always be at their minimum size, instead of sets - it every time I open the Fantasy Grounds?

I copied it from whose CoreRPG which is equal to that used in Call of Cthulhu, I believe that the values change from Ruleset Ruleset to, but my biggest question is what those numbers represent?
If I understand well they reflect dimensions and locations of each portion of the image, but pq various fields?

There's no feature within Fantasy Grounds currently to remember the position of desktop panels (such as the chat window) between game sessions. I believe it's on the wish list if you want to vote for it. (in my sig)
