[FF8PC-Steam] HD PS1 Font Replacement
« on: 2015-09-19 11:36:41 »
Hey there this is my mod for replacing the ugly font in the steam version with a font that is similar to the ps1 version, granted it isn't 100% exactly the same.

I used the original ps1 font from the game files as a base and worked my way up from there, there should be no alignment issues now, less pixelation and each letter should have more or less the same thickness, I also added a thicker shadow since I found it more pleasing on the eye. I also changed the colours to match the original ps1 version hope you enjoy, feedback is welcome there is still some letters that I'm not 100% happy with and will most likely update this in the future.



Version 2







Version 1






Please note this mod requires tonberry

1) Place Sy folder inside textures folder

2) Place excel sheet inside Hashmap folder

3) Disable Steam overlay

4) Enjoy

Oh yeah! I've been waiting for this for a long time!
I really love it. The ticker font gives an incredible deepness effect. Also, at least for me, it keeps my eyes more relaxed, I have less fatigue when reading your font samples. Thanks for your work :D

This looks great! Will this work on top of SeeD Reborn?

Yes this works fine with Seed Reborn, it uses the same hashmap codes so if you already have that installed then you don't need the excel sheet, just replace the sy folder.
