New Fonts

We've added 2 new fonts to the forums for your use. You'll have to have the fonts for them to be viewable here on the forums. Be sure to install:

Caribbean Island Font

Pieces of Eight Font

Be sure to unzip the files and download the font files into to your c:/windows/font/ folder. That's all there is to it. Then you'll be able to see the new fonts installed here on POF.

If you don't have these fonts installed, you'll see them just in some default font, like Times Roman or Verdana.

You will need to extract them to the font folder. As Batleth said, extract them to c:/windows/font/ folder

If if saved them in a folder, what you can do is go to Start menu > Control panel > Fonts and drag the 2 fonts into that folder.

Good luck mate!

Awesome job Bat!

Just a note: If you are going to post in these pirate fonts, please use font size 3 or more. Guess some of us older pirates are having a hard time reading them if their too small.

Very cool fonts, thanks Bat!

Looks great!

A plus for those graphics artists out there.
These fonts (once installed) should now be available in your favorite graphics app!!
Use them on your avatars, sigs you create, etc. as well!

Installing Fonts in Vista

  1. Open Fonts by clicking the Start button Picture of the Start button, clicking Control Panel, clicking Appearance and Personalization, and then clicking Fonts.
  2. Click File, and then click Install New Font. If you don’t see the File menu, press ALT.
  3. In the Add Fonts dialog box, under Drives, click the drive where the font that you want to install is located.
  4. Under Folders, double-click the folder containing the fonts that you want to add.
  5. Under List of fonts, click the font that you want to add, and then click Install.

Or just drag the file into C:\Windows\Fonts (should be there... ~.-)

EDIT: My computer was having some problems and it wouldn't let me get rid of the original folder for the pieces of eight font. It finally let me delete the original so the only thing left that's useful is the one installed and in the fonts area of my computer. Great new fonts!

Awesome!

If you need help installing fonts Disney (oddly enough) has a guide you can use. Go to http://www.disneyexperience.com/customize/fonts.php Scroll down to "Installing Fonts" then read the guide for your System. I use it everytime I need to intall a font its clear and easy.
