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.

Got like a sudden surge of wish lists overnight. :)

The theory has been proved. Based on an invisible image's data(the big red dot in the previous image), RM can identify different parts of an enemy and do something respectively. :kaojoy:
Ok.. coding what should be a simple "everyone is petrified and therefore dead, now go to game over screen" shouldn't involve needing to become Dr. J and dunking from the free throw line(my way of saying "jumping through hoops").
Hmmmm... how many xrays til I get super powers?
..of the major old school series that began in the 80s- early 90s, I still haven't beaten 'a' Zelda game. Mario 64 was the first Mario I've beaten. I don't know if I should give that honor to Link to the Past or A Link Between Worlds(I currently own both). Well technically I've haven't beaten a Sonic either (Game Genie doesn't count =P).
