Hi Guys,

In the General-forum there came the question up, if we can play our game and see the chinese characters AND have also the origianl EU/US font

I opened and extract the TTF files from the different locale.MPQ

EU/US client:
ARIALN.TTF 132KB (Chat, Numbers, Loginscreen)
FITZQT_.TTF 61KB (main-font)
MORPHEUS.TTF 67KB (Mail, Questlog)
SKURRI.TTF 105KB (Damage)

Chinese client:
ARIALN.TTF 132KB
FITZQT_.TTF 61KB
ZYHei.ttf 7189KB
ZYKai_C.ttf 8539KB
ZYKai_T.ttf 8502KB

Fonts.rar download from this webpage
ARIALN.TTF 22731KB (renamed Unicode)
FITZQT_.TTF 22731KB (renamed Unicode)
MORPHEUS.TTF 67KB
SKURRI.TTF 2122KB (renamed chin. type)

FITZQT_.TTF exists in both versions, and this is actually the main-font in our clients. So I am not sure, if the FITZQT_.TTF must be really a renamed Unicode. After we are back ingame again I will test it. Maybe someone of the old forummembers knows, why the FITZQT_.TTF is a renamed Unicode in the downloadable rar-file.
It is easy to extract the files from the locale.MPQ file in the wow/data folder. WinMPQ is the Google-Keyword.

Maybe somebody like to help me in this case. Let's figure it out together.

Hey well I guess I know who asked Very Happy

I already tried to modify these files to get my own font.
In fact, the names MUST be the following ones :
ARIALN.TTF
FITZQT_.TTF
MORPHEUS.TTF
SKURRI.TTF
After that, no matter what font you use, you have to rename it as those four.

So yeah, FITZQT_.TTF is a renamed unicode (i guess Arial narrow or something), if you don't rename it, the game won't recognize the font you want to use. (damn this is so not clear Razz )

I don't have my WoW Folder on this computer and won't be back to China until September...I won't be able to check any change we will make, but let me know if you find anything interesting, I can give you my opinion about it, I'm sure we can find out how to make chinese readable while keeping the old fonts !


ps: At the time I was trying to modify my WoW folders, I didn't find any Font folder in the Chinese folder. Maybe if you just Copy/Paste it in you EU folder it will work ?
