Hi Chip!

We are working Chinese localization.

The game client supports some Chinese characters. Howerer, other characters such as "简体" would appear as boxes. Loading custom fonts solves the problem in some places, but in some places (especially when using other addons), there would be boxes.

Is it possible to allow Simple Chinese characters in game UI? Thank you.

@Chip: We (mainly Lionas ) had the problem with Potion Maker, too.
We found that $(CHAT_FONT)="EsoUI/Common/Fonts/ESO_FWUDC_70-M.ttf" supports more chars than $(BOLD_FONT)="EsoUI/Common/Fonts/ESO_FWNTLGUDC70-DB.ttf".

If the characters show up when using another font then it's just that the Japanese game font doesn't have glyphs for those characters. We are not able to fix that. However if it shows up as a box with a font that does have the glyph (like it shows up fine in notepad) then we can look at adding more to the character set for the game.

Hey Chip! I have a few questions.

1. Filter in Collections window is case-sensitive, when I type in Russian. If I type in English, everything is okay. Is there any way to fix this?
2. Are there any news about API support for Chat Bubbles and Nameplates?
3. How to change date format in Achievements window? Now it uses format "mm/dd/yyyy", but we use "mm.dd.yyyy" in Russia. It will be cool to have an API method to change date format globally.
4. Can you please replace native Cyrillic with something more readable? In RuESO we use custom fonts, so we don't have a such problem. But those who don't use RuESO complain about quality of native Cyrillic. Just look at this:



Too much space between characters and bad quality overall. It uses Japanese font now, right?

Can we have an option to alter the original game fonts? Perhaps change to key-value pair to a new one?

For localization, these fonts need to be replaced by others:
Lua Code:
  1. <String name="MEDIUM_FONT" value="EsoUI/Common/Fonts/ESO_FWNTLGUDC70-DB.ttf" />
  2.     <String name="BOLD_FONT" value="EsoUI/Common/Fonts/ESO_FWNTLGUDC70-DB.ttf" />
  3.     <String name="CHAT_FONT" value="EsoUI/Common/Fonts/ESO_FWUDC_70-M.ttf" />
  4.  
  5.     <String name="GAMEPAD_LIGHT_FONT" value="EsoUI/Common/Fonts/ESO_FWNTLGUDC70-DB.ttf" />
  6.     <String name="GAMEPAD_MEDIUM_FONT" value="EsoUI/Common/Fonts/ESO_FWNTLGUDC70-DB.ttf" />
  7.     <String name="GAMEPAD_BOLD_FONT" value="EsoUI/Common/Fonts/ESO_FWNTLGUDC70-DB.ttf" />
  8.  
  9.     <String name="ANTIQUE_FONT" value="EsoUI/Common/Fonts/ESO_FWNTLGUDC70-DB.ttf" />
  10.     <String name="HANDWRITTEN_FONT" value="EsoUI/Common/Fonts/ESO_FWNTLGUDC70-DB.ttf" />
  11.     <String name="STONE_TABLET_FONT" value="EsoUI/Common/Fonts/ESO_FWNTLGUDC70-DB.ttf" />

Or we have to modify all the add-ons which use these fonts one by one. That's not good for other languages.

Currently we can replace the font in this way in {lang}_client.str:
Code:
[Font:ZoFontGame] = "CustomLang/fonts/univers57.otf|18|soft-shadow-thin"
Is there any way to change GAMEPAD_LIGHT_FONT's value?

1) Seems like a failure of the toupper function for Russian. It might be something with the locale not being set properly for non-official languages.
2) Haven't had a chance to add these yet.
3) This data is hard coded to the official language type. It would need to be changed to some sort of locale based call on PC.
4) This would require licensing a new font for a language that is not officially supported which makes it unlikely. I can try to raise the idea or see if we can Frankenstein another font into this one but it's not an easy thing to do.

Could a standalone addon for changing the Russian font be made? Then if a player understands russian but does not want to use RuESO, they can use that addon. If they don't understand Russian, then it's not a huge problem.

In pChat, I've added few fonts, all Open Source, which render very nicely with RU characters. I think the DejaVu or the Ubuntu one is the best, don't remember exactly.

Actually you did it already Now we can change the font of chat bubbles and nameplates, which is great.

So chip, it's not sufficient.

I've already ask in the other post but I'll ask once again...

There's some situation that the code is not using ZoFont*****, but "$(GAMEPAD_MEDIUM_FONT)" instead. If we cannot replace the value of GAMEPAD_MEDIUM_FONT, we cannot replace the font.

You can see the file:
esoui\esoui\common\tooltip\tooltipstyles.lua

Lua Code:
  1. tooltip =
  2.     {
  3.         width = ZO_GAMEPAD_CONTENT_WIDTH,
  4.         paddingLeft = 0,
  5.         paddingRight = 0,
  6.         fontFace = "$(GAMEPAD_MEDIUM_FONT)",
  7.         fontColorType = INTERFACE_COLOR_TYPE_GAMEPAD_TOOLTIP,
  8.         fontColorField = GENERAL_COLOR_GREY,
  9.         fontStyle = "soft-shadow-thick",
  10.     },

Also, there's a major issue that most add-on authors are not using ZoFont***** at all, they use like '$(GAMEPAD_MEDIUM_FONT)|$(GP_61)|soft-shadow-thick', and if we want to localize those add-ons, we have to modify their codes to change to other fonts.

So we need a way to change the value of:

Lua Code:
  1. <String name="MEDIUM_FONT" value="EsoUI/Common/Fonts/Univers57.otf" />
  2.     <String name="BOLD_FONT" value="EsoUI/Common/Fonts/Univers67.otf" />
  3.     <String name="CHAT_FONT" value="EsoUI/Common/Fonts/Univers57.otf" />
  4.    
  5.     <String name="GAMEPAD_LIGHT_FONT" value="EsoUI/Common/Fonts/FTN47.otf" />
  6.     <String name="GAMEPAD_MEDIUM_FONT" value="EsoUI/Common/Fonts/FTN57.otf" />
  7.     <String name="GAMEPAD_BOLD_FONT" value="EsoUI/Common/Fonts/FTN87.otf" />
  8.  
  9.     <String name="ANTIQUE_FONT" value="EsoUI/Common/Fonts/ProseAntiquePSMT.otf" />
  10.     <String name="HANDWRITTEN_FONT" value="EsoUI/Common/Fonts/Handwritten_Bold.otf" />
  11.     <String name="STONE_TABLET_FONT" value="EsoUI/Common/Fonts/TrajanPro-Regular.otf" />
