Hello I am fairly new to the VX version of software, and I am currently working on a Pokemon game. I Want this game to have: 

-Black font

-Black as default so its in the menus as well

-No font borders 

-a way to test and change the default font

-A unique cursor for selecting. Not the box, but lets say an arrow.

I have been working on this all day and cant figure it out. I have my desired font, but it looks weird and the default black borders are ruining the effect. Also I managed to change the font color to black, but then only certain things showed up in my menus like "Continue" at the main menu, and "Formation" on the field menu. Does anyone know why this is happening? Please help. Thank you

RMMV
First, are you using VX or VX Ace? Your post says one, but your profile (and the forum in which you've posted) says another. They are two different versions, and may require different solutions.

if it's ace

Code:
class Window_Base  #the normal font color  def normal_color;Color.new(0,0,0);end  #in case you want the blue system texts to be black too  def system_color;Color.new(0,0,0);end  #to change font  Font.default_name = "Whatever name of your font is"end
or you could also edit the windowskin so that the first color on the pallet is black instead of white

I'm sorry for the confusion. Its Ace, but I jumped right from 2003 to Ace haha

Also is there a easy way to edit my windowskin palette? I tried earlier, but I don't know what matches up with what. Is there like a template or diagram I could view?

When I added that bit of code (to the top just under the class callout, I didn't really know if it needed a specific place) I came up with this error: (The one on top) and then when i changed the "end" to "$end" the following error was displayed.

Look in the help file, it talks about the windowskin (I think it calls it something else) and I haven't seen many better or more convenient explanations for it.

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.
finally got footage of my main character running around the main hub world. I've fixed a few things tho even since this video unsurprisingly lol.
 …I think I might need to switch from standard ATK/DEF up/down buffs to parameter altering states. I just had an actor whose usual attack against an enemy does ~25 do a buffed attack against a debuffed enemy for ~600…
