Hey guys,

Atm im changing my UI and also added some fonts ( windows 7 ones )
Though in programs like MSN or QQ these fonts also support chinese language
however when i Add those fonts to WoW they dont..

1. Can anyone tell me why for example the Skurri font ( from the font file ) can display chinese characters in WoW and yet others cant?

2. How can I make my other font files ( the windows7 ones ) be able to display Chinese Characters in WoW?

Just wondering Smile

Thanks in Advance !

Not all font files contain the full set of unicode characters (chinese/japanese/greek/russian......) most just have the main western character set with european/variants included - and are noticably smaller in filesize.

Consider also that many fonts are developed by individuals - and usually only include their own country's character set.

Your average font file is probably only about 100-200kb, however the ones including Chinese and other international characters tend to be anything from 1mb up to 40mb depending on the character sets included in it.

Take a look at the filesizes of the font files.. that should give you a rough idea of which ones might/might not work.

Hey Lore,

Is there some way i might add Chinese to existing fonts or link them to another font's chinese part?

You need to use a Unicode font set. It's the ones who contains the symbols for non-alphabetical languages. look at http://cooltext.com/Fonts for a few of them, oherwise Google is your friend.

Once you've found some working fonts you'll need to rename them. You can look at this thread for some hints : http://wow-in-chinese.forum2jeux.com/technical-support-f2/solved-using-wow-original-fonts-and-see-chinese-t1283.htm

Goodluck Smile

Hey Bolo,

I know how to get the fonts into WoW this isnt really the problem I use an addon called Shared Media with this its very easy ( no renaming etc.. ).

Also I dont want to download any new fonts I want to use my existing fonts and add chinese to those ( if its possible ).
You know of any font editor program or so that allows me to do this?

For anyone who likes I made 3 additional fonts for in WOW

Code:
http://www.megaupload.com/?d=CCEZDYS7

In order to use these fonts you need to use an addon called Shared Media click this link for curse download
they dont work when you put them in your font folder.

Also anyone who might have a request for a font he or she would like to see in Chinese let me know and ill add it for you Smile
