Post subject:  Unifont Guide - Detailed with pictures!

As stated below only the second method works on Battle.net as of Battle.net update version 1.27a. Please refer to the second method when installing unifont.
-Dragon


===EDIT===
So as it turns out, The first method does not work for me.
I mean it does work for LAN, but it does not let me log onto battle.net (for some odd reason)
However, it seems that the first method works for some people (seeing as how it is a thing)
However #2, I would personally recommend using the alternate method with the registry.
Thats the one that im using right now and it works perfectly.

===EDIT #2===
I forgot to mention that for any method that you are using you MUST close your wc3 before starting these steps.
Only AFTER you are done can you open wc3 up.
I thought that it would be common knowledge to close something first before modifying it,
but this is just in case some people don't know that.
===END EDIT===


Since people chaossniper keep complaining about Unifont i decided to make a guide. its really simple.

first of all: Image
The instructions here are brief and nice.


So just dl the rar (from the forum where hvsh posted) to your desktop and then move it to your wc3 folder.
Image


then right click and press extract here
Image


then you'll get a folder named 'unifont'
Image


Before you do anything else first find the file named War3Path.mpq and rename it to War3Path-backup.mpq.
Image


now you're set to manipulate the mpq file.
open the folder 'unifont' and run setup.bat by right clicking and pressing run as administrator
Image


And bam you're done!

Here are before and after pics

Before:

After:

ALTERNATIVE:

Now there is an alternative way of doing this as well.
I guess you could say its a little riskier to do, at least hvsh doesn't like it XD
but if you've done hpbars or UI customizations (for UI customizations there are ways of not using a .reg file but for those that have used a .reg file for UI's) you've already run a .reg file which alters your registry. All this .reg file does is it tells wc3 to look at your local files for the font instead of its own files.

If you have already run a .reg file then all you need to do is put the Fonts folder with the font inside in your wc3 directory and wc3 should automatically run it since you've already told wc3 where to look.

---------
now first things first you need to dl the files i've provided in the attachments
(the file was too big so ill just do this : http://www.mediafire.com/download/4ujcxsyzdrk6kyx/Fonts.rar )

in the Fonts.rar file you'll see two files named CUSTOMBG.reg and a Fonts folder with a font inside.
put the Fonts folder with the font inside in your wc3 directory.

Now for those that are scared of what might happen to their registry you can back it up with these simple steps

first open registry editor, or regedit.exe

Image


a window like this will popup
Image


then press file -> export it to a place you'll know where and name it something good.
Image


now you'll have a .reg file with all your registry settings saved.

Now that you've backed it up you can now run CUSTOMBG.reg which will tell wc3 to look at your local files instead of its own files for running things like fonts or UI or HP bars.

To run CUSTOMBG.reg just double click and a window will popup, press yes and then okay.

To revert to your old settings for your registry just run your reg-backup.reg that you made and press yes and then okay.


If you liked this please tell me, if you'd like to add something please tell me,
If you'd like me to do a guide for kloader then tell me too :D
THANKS

Lee was my last hope, but it doesn't work for me (or I'm doing it like a dumb, but it doesn't seem hard to make it work...)

what problem did you run into? was it where you tried to connect to bnet and it gave you a fatal error?
i ran into that problem using the first method, even though that method is suppose to be a thing.
Did you try the alternate method? I know you've done the hp bars so all you need to do is DL the .rar file, trash the .reg file (cuz you've prob used it in the past) and then put the Fonts folder in your wc3 directory ( C:\Program Files (x86)\Warcraft III )

It's just not working, with it or without it, it's the same thing.

No you put the Fonts folder in the wrong place
Its suppose to be in (in your case) Ordinateur/Disque local (D:)/Warcraft III

Not in Ordinateur/Disque local (D:)/Warcraft III/UI

So just put the Fonts folder out side of UI and inside of Warcraft III
