    Please help with fonts.

    Chat does not understand the Cyrillic alphabet, tell me how to change the default font.

    Fonts are bitmaps stored in .fgf files in the ruleset. You can generate your own using a font generator on the downloads page (http://www.fantasygrounds.com/downloads/).
    This will mean some basic customisation, such as unpacking the ruleset (if in a .PAK) file.

    Using Ultimate FGII - that means anyone can play.

    Hello,

    I'm using Czech special characters and they are not displayed correctly (in whole user interface, not only on chat window).
    I did not find any possibility how to change the font or encoding. Also I do not know how to change font size.

    Only advice I found was to use some additional tool (font generator) to replace the font - for such a simple thing which I consider a base feature of almost any app.
    (not mentioning that I did not found it yet, it is not on the provided URL in the post above)

    Hi Riffage - on this current game engine there is no support for other character sets. You can only use the current character set. The font tool above is to change fonts only and FG also supports true type fonts so it is not necessary either.

    Welcome to the FG forums!

    Unfortunately, you won't see anything like Cyrillic support in Fantasy Grounds Classic (the current version of FG) as the way the fonts work is pretty much a core part of the application and it would be a massive task to try to change that. This may come into FG Unity in the future, here is a recent comment on that from the devs: https://www.fantasygrounds.com/forum...l=1#post460784
