Taking the Next Step Towards a Unique Game
In my previous articles about RPG Maker VX, various topics were covered such as replacing the generic title screen or importing your own creations into your game. It is in the perspective of making your game truly stand apart that this article has been written.
This time around, I will explain how to change the font for your game. You can thus choose just about any font you like and use it in your RPG project. As usual, clear and precise instructions are provided as well as screenshots and just about every bit of information you could need.
By following the instructions you could get a really nice font such as this (Les Héritiers du Techcatl by Mkmk):

RPG Maker VX: Changing the Font
Before changing the font for your project, you’ll need to find one which really suits your game. If you already know which font you’d like to use, move on to the next section.
If you don’t however, I would recommend what a very good website for fonts. All the fonts are arranged in various categories. If you browse for a little while, you’ll definitely find something which would work for your project (not to mention that the fonts on that website are free).

Scroll your mouse over the main window in the right. Click right after the line which says:
Once you’ve done that, press Enter. This should leave your line 9 blank (that is of course, if you have no other special scripts that you previously added here).
Now copy and paste the following script (script designed by woretana):
Font.default_name = "Font_Name"
Font.default_size = Font_size

tep #4: Now all you need to do is to replace “Font_Name” by the name of the font you want and replace “Font_size” by a number representing the size you’d like to have. Once you're done click "OK".
Here's another screenshot to give you a better example of what this section should look like:
Note 1: Make sure you've actually installed the font you've downloaded.
Note 2: Make sure to include your font when archiving your game if it's not a default font found in Windows otherwise the characters won't show up.
