How to change font for Flight of the Amazon Queen?

Post by maxxlu » Fri Feb 03, 2006 12:34 pm

I want to translate this game to Russian.
So far I found at least one issue: the font is hard-coded in the resources.
What will be the best way to add a support for Russian font?

I was able to recompile SCUMMVM with my custom Russian fonts, but I suppose it will break other languages.

Хорошая новость :)

The font was built into executable, so is with ScummVM. That means that only way for you would be to add it to ScummVM as well (see queen/display.cpp). There is no problem with that, start translating the game (license allows that), and at the point when you will be about to insert the text into game data, just submit your font to our patchtracker.

And what should I do for this? I already have a Russian font.
My solution is to add several lines of code into defs.h & display.cpp to define a new font array.

Just take a look how it handles Hebrew font and do the same.

Submit your changes to the Patch Tracker within the Sourceforge Project page. That will let the admins review and test it, and then decide whether to integrate it into the official source.
