Ren'Py supports the use of truetype fonts. It can use a file you supply, or a font that is available on your system. The former is preferred, if the font is one you can freely distribute. The latter may be necessary if you can't redistribute the font.

You change the font by changing the font style property. It usually makes sense to do this on the default style.

To change the default font to the one contained in galactica.ttf in the game directory, add to the init block at the start of your script the line:

Code: Select all

$ style.display.font = "galactica.ttf"
If you want to use Arial as your font, write:

Code: Select all

$ style.display.font = "Arial"
You may want to delete common/Vera.ttf if it is unused.
