In certain cases I get crashes due to this font mod well any fonts based off of haen's tool. I think his tool was specific to PST and the bam ordering might be different for BG/BG2. I can use default kits etc, but when I use the custom kit Auror the game crashes. See thread here. Scratch that, further testing shows that it's actually the combination of IA and Auror kit that caused the crash...

Sure. Upload the bam files and I'll put them on the first post too.

The Question is what font size do you need, i made it for 7 inch tablet. So i used 20pt for Normal.bam and 18pt for Other...Btw i can make some new fonts with custom font size)

If you can provide multiple font sizes even better. As for for exact size, I don't know, I believe my English fonts were 18, but it depends on the font type. Use your better judgment, these fonts will be mostly used with 1280x1024, 1680x1050 and 1920x1080 resolutions.

Here i am...

So, a made 3 types of fonts with Cyrillic support:

16pt Verdana - good for Toolfont.bam or Stonesml.bam (if you use Stonesml.bam than you need to invert colours in BAM Workshop)
16pt Verdana Bold - the same but better or >1024 resolution
18pt Verdana - good for Normal.bam

p.s. BTW, i made ready to use files..they are also in attachement

In case the BG2 game crashes post the content of your baldur.err file. To get it to record stuff, open up the 'baldur.ini' in your game folder with Notepad, and under the [Program Options] section in the file, make a new line and type in 'Logging On=1' (without the '' quotes, unless the line is already there)... Save the file and exit. Now go back into the game and try to reproduce the crash. Then look in your game folder again for the Baldur.err file and open it with the Notepad to analyze its contents, or let us do it.

What do you mean? Is it currently possible to increase font size in BG:EE or not?

Is there a way to edit what font size this mod uses? I tried editing the files in Notepad but I guess it's not that simple. :P

You'll have to recreate the font using the Font Bam Generator tool. Look here: http://www.shsforums...onts-for-pt-pl/
