You also need to edit the <skin name> settings.xml file located in the settings folder of your skin to point to the new fonts aswell, the only font that FM2012 uses by default is 'HelveticaNeueOTS' if the name you've given the fonts you are using is anything but that the game won't detect them unless you modify the mentioned file.

If you want the font to apply everywhere then the easiest thing to do is to rename the font to 'HelveticaNeueOTS' the game will then read your font.

If you want to custom the fonts furrther you'll need to edit the xml files, in the settings folder of the skin you are using you should have a file called <skin name> settings.xml open that and it should have some code like this:

<!-- text settings that vary from the defaults -->

<flags id="text_font" value="fonts/helveticaneueots" />

<integer id="text_size_small" value="8" />

<integer id="text_size_normal" value="8" />

<integer id="text_size_large" value="9.4" />

<flags id="hint_font" value="fonts/helveticaneueots" />

<integer id="hint_size" value="8"/>

<flags id="control_font" value="fonts/helveticaneueots" />

<integer id="control_size_normal" value="8"/>

<flags id="menu_font" value="fonts/helveticaneueots" />

<integer id="menu_size_small" value="7"/>

<integer id="menu_size_normal" value="8"/>

<integer id="menu_size_large" value="10"/>

<flags id="title_font" value="fonts/helveticaneueots" />

<integer id="title_size_large" value="16"/>

<integer id="title_size_normal" value="14"/>

<integer id="title_size_small" value="11"/>

<integer id="title_style" value="semi_bold"/>

<flags id="html_font" value="fonts/helveticaneueots" />

<flags id="pitch_font" value="fonts/helveticaneueots" />

<flags id="duty_font" value="fonts/helveticaneueots" />

where it says helveticaneueots replace it with the name of the font you want to use.

It's not a problem with a TTF format font as I've just tried one, what font are you trying to use, if you have downloaded one from the internet try also copying it into the c:/windows/fonts folder.

Have you tried copying a random font over from your c:/windows/fonts folder and renaming it to HelveticaNeueOTS to see if that works?

When you are changing your skin or adding graphics, I suggest turning off "skin cache", so you can see changes once you reload the skin.

Once you are done with changing, thick that option back on.

Ive found that the font name has to be lower case in the config file.

Anybody know what the fm11s font was? Also is it possible to change the kerning of the text
