[SOLVED] Specifying font for Character object

#1 Post by nerupuff » Thu Mar 21, 2019 1:51 am

I have one character who uses a specific font for his own dialogue and I find that individually coding each line of dialogue with (sample):

Code: Select all

"Try out the {font=mikachan.ttf}mikachan font{/font}."
I've tried specifying the character object as such, but I don't see any font tag usage for character objects in Ren'Py documentation:

Code: Select all

define NM = Character(None, kind=nvl, font="/fonts/Kingthings_Printingkit.ttf")
There are no error codes, but when I launch the project, it does not reflect the font specified and uses the default font. Help? Maybe there is something that I am missing.

Try "what_font" instead. The "what_" prefix affects the dialogue, and the "who_" prefix affects the character's name.

Code: Select all

define NM = Character(None, kind=nvl, what_font="/fonts/Kingthings_Printingkit.ttf")
https://www.renpy.org/doc/html/dialogue.html#Character
Down to where it says Styling Text and Windows, it gives an example with who_color
