As of lately, I haven't been able to download any new fonts -- .ttf is the type of file most of the fonts I download are. Every time I try to move a font into the Font folder in the Control Panel, I get an error message or two that says that _____ (usually a jumble of letters and numbers that is different for each font) is not a valid font type and sometimes one that says En_US is not a valid font type...
I was able to download and use .ttf fonts before -- While I was using XP...Right now, I think it's one of those never-ending Vista problems...
Can you still go in C:\WINDOWS\Fonts and put the fonts there manually?
I've never used Vista and know nothing about it, mind you.
Well, I send the files from inside the RAR into the Fonts folder manually - it's the only way I know how to...
So yeah - even manually, it gives me the font errors...
Vista is known for this problem since the very beginning. There are a few ways to do this correctly:
1. Start > Control Panel > Appearance & Personalization > Fonts > File (if hidden, press ALT) > Install New Fonts. The rest is easy to figure.
2. Like Emery said, extract your fonts first, preferable to C:/ .... dunno why, for some people this method don't work when they extract it to non-OS partition
Usually when you have troubles with Windows, please do visit the MSDN Forum, anyway for this specific problem: Check this thread
Okay, Thanks~! It worked this time.
It's not really a problem. They just changed how it's implemented a bit. It's actually a bit easier, minus the security popup. You just need to select the font files you want to install, and then right click and select the "Install" option. Fairly straightforward.
I'm looking for this font. Anyone can help me?
so..im looking for some new dialogue fonts to use.
i hv wild words, jack armstrong, digital strip, zud juice..n can't think of anymore at the moment.
so, any other nice fonts that you guys can suggest?
Tons, but it all depends on the kind of manga, or the kind of text you're using it for.
hmm..well..what about a serious font? like the font the US shonen jump uses for they manga..any ideas?
I've never read the US Shonen Jump.
sorry, for some reason, it makes me laugh (not because u don't read it no. its because of the 'attitude' you gave, sorta like 'they suck' )
ummm.. well then...something like digital strip? kinda 'serious' mood in it (if you know what i mean). no fun/casual feeling it in. just...plain serious ...i cant think of a better word..sorry... thanks anyway.
So just a regular dialogue font?
Zapf Raygun, Lafayette, Kid Cosmic, Webletterer?
