I found out in a YouTube video that you can change the look, or font, of the text in RA2YR using Ares. How to do?

Well, use OPEN SOURCE FONT EDITOR!!! It's pretty obvious, duh... Laughing

And It's a topic in the Ares Documents that comes bundled with your download... I think
Well, Ares pretty much let's you do nearly all Hardcoded stuff, so explore it's limitations man...

One downside is that the OS Font Editor can't export the fonts to formats readable by other devices (Arial 8 Bold comes close enough though, to the font displayed on loading screens), but that shouldn't matter for your purposes. So yes, here you go: https://ppmforums.com/viewtopic.php?t=14081

This never needed Ares though.

Thanks. I never knew this was a thing. I guess I'm just too much of a newbie.

New question: Where can I find that one font which is used in Mental Omega 2.0? Is that a different forum topic too?

There are tens of thousands of fonts you could use, so why do you want one exactly the same as MO..?

MO2 used a beta font which is there in the RA2 mixes (also AR2 used that one IIRC). Look it up yourself - I don't remember the filename -, Mixer can tell if you find a valid font file.

Because one, I like it , and two, it's common amongst mods.
