I want to change the font for my game, for only a SINGLE line of text to wingdings. Can I get a script or some advice on how to do this?
The main script of the game keeps the text at a default "Arial" font, and changing that would change the entire game's font, so I want a line of script to insert into an event to change the font style to WingDings, make the event say a line of text, then change it back to Arial style.

You can try to put a script call
Code:
Font.default_name = "FontName"
before show text. Then put back to arial after that

I can verify that this works for some fonts, but I am not sure if Wingdings is recognized by RMVXAce.

Same, I'm not sure if Wingdings would be usable in VXAce. But hey, the idea is to temporarily change the font anyway. Not how to make a certain font usable I guess

Actually I've already tried a similar script, it just restarts the entire game with ALL the text being in wingdings. Title and buttons included /:
It even has a weird effect where the room you were in previously is now elapsed under the first room when you click new game... Got some... Weird effects to it /:

Nvm... It actually worked this time? Thanks lol
Although, the font doesn't change until you open some sort of menu, so since it's a battle, I just force a save.

Finished another GUI! Turn indicator wasn't made by me.

Added a small refining scene to my game.

It makes sense that you try to focus on the squishy mages at the back of the party first, right? If the mage can out-DPS the enemy DPS before the latter can kill the tank in front, the fight becomes boring.
