Actually I wasn't really pleased with the way the infinity sign came out, so here's another update to make it better. I also fixed a wee spacing bug with a one of the cyrillic/greek characters.

Hello.
Since today's nightly you can externalize fonts as mod without overriding original OpenXcom files.

I tested this functionality on your fonts, so here updated mod, which should be extracted in mods folder. After this navigate to Settings - Mods and activate "Amiga/PSX fonts". DONE!

This font looks beautiful.  I did notice that it is missing the infinity symbol, though, which is used on the manufacture screen when manufacturing infinite items.

...so here updated mod...

This font looks beautiful.  I did notice that it is missing the infinity symbol, though, which is used on the manufacture screen when manufacturing infinite items.

I believe Winterheart worked with an older version, because the latest fonts already include the infinity sign and several additional characters. You can use Winter's mod version and overwrite the image files with originals from Hythlodaeus' package.

Edit: You will also need to copy the "chars" line from the original Font.dat into the mod's AmigaFont.dat.

Edit2: ...or you could try my fix, attached. :P

Thank you, winterheart and Ishmaeel.

Oh and by the way, this works with TFTD too, and it looks lovely!

With the latest nightlies, there appears to be an issue with transparency (with version 1.5 of this mod). The colors come wrong. I'm not exactly sure of what to edit, I've compared the original FontBig.png and FontSmall.png with the ones in this mod in gimp and the background is transparent, so there is nothing noticeable that could be causing this issue. Does anyone know why this could be?

Also, this mod's AmigaFont.dat is outdated and will crash the game. To make it work, you have to copy the game's dat, and edit the fields accordingly.
