[AVS] - [VTEXT] Using A Custom Font
« on: May 03, 2020, 07:07:44 PM »

Using A Custom Font Type on /vtext and /avs Commands

In this topic, you will learn how to use a different font from Windows' original fonts. Meaning, any font that you download from a website can be used on UIF's VIP signs and vehicle texts.


TUTORIAL

STEP 1 - Downloading A Custom Font

If you want to use a custom font, you're going to need a custom font first. I personally use DaFont for my own purposes.

Website is pretty self-explanatory. You find a good font for your taste and just click download button on the far right side of page.



I have chosen a font named "Fergitta" and downloaded it.

STEP 2 - Installing the Font

Open the directory where you downloaded the file. Open the WinRAR file and move the .otf and/or .ttf file(s) to a folder.



Then install the font by right clicking to the file(s) and selecting "Install" option.



STEP 3 - Check Font's Name to be Used In-game

Not always fonts' names are the same as their .ttf/.otf files' names. To check that, you need to right click while on desktop and select "Personalize" option.



On the section that appears after you select "Personalize", locate to "Fonts" option on the left side. (1) Then search the font you installed. (2) I installed a font named Fergitta so I searched for Fergitta. The font that will show up is the name you will be using in-game. (3)



STEP 4 - Using The Font In-game

Once you completed every step above, you should now be able to use the font you installed in-game. All you need to do is, type the font name you found on Step 3 in /avs command line or /vtext's font entry box.





Final Products

- VIP Sign -



- Vehicle Text -





FOOTNOTE: Server does not support fonts that contain two or more words in their names. It needs to contain only one word for the name. If that's the case, follow below.

If your font's name consists of two or more words, just like so;



Click the picture below and watch the video to fix that issue.



This is the website used on video - http://www.glyphrstudio.com/online/

After you did everything on the video and downloaded the new .otf file, just install it and use the name you have typed in the video (Where I typed "deadpack")



If you need any assistance, contact me through forum messages or discord.

It can only be seen by the people who have the same font installed to their computers.

True, Eixanumii had the same topic. I remade it because the tutorial pictures in that topic were wiped out as tinypic was shutdown.
