My Gaming Machine. Now playing Dead Space 1 and Black Mesa Source. I've also been testing FF Aurora and went back and fourth with myself about switching back. I think I'll stay with Chrome for now. ;)

The method I personally used involved editing the registry (regedit)

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Fonts

set the following as blank:

"Segoe UI (TrueType)"=""
"Segoe UI Bold (TrueType)"=""
"Segoe UI Bold Italic (TrueType)"=""
"Segoe UI Italic (TrueType)"=""
"Segoe UI Light (TrueType)"=""
"Segoe UI Semibold (TrueType)"=""
"Segoe UI Symbol (TrueType)"=""


then went to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\FontSubstitutes

and set:


"Segoe UI"="MyNewFont"
"Segoe UI Light"="MyNewFont"
"Segoe UI Semibold"="MyNewFont"
"Segoe UI Symbol"="MyNewFont"

with MyNewFont being the name of the pixel font that I use (which is actually called Kroeger 05_55)

However, there is a cleaner (and probably safer, depending on your level of experience) way of doing it using a utility written by [url="http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,1565,00.asp"]PC Magazine[/url] from 11 years ago called "[url="http://wittswallpapers.com/Oldies/displayset.zip"]DisplaySet[/url]." DisplaySet essentially brings back the functionality of the "Appearance and Settings" menu (lets you change windows colors, fonts, font sizes, etc) that was removed from Windows 8 if you don't feel like editing the registry by hand. Surprisingly it still works even to this day.

nope... your reg entries did not work... all it did was get rid of segoeui and replace with some ugly font.... I used Candara as my example..... grrr that sucks for us font freaks....

and altering the symbol one made all the metro icons like the arrows into boxes... :-(


easily recoverable though by restoring a vbox image...

oh that's right, I forgot, the displayset installer wouldn't work for me either on Win8 or on my Server 2012 machine so I had to run it from an XP virtual machine. [url="http://www.syncore.org/displayset.rar"]Here's the archive[/url] with the contents extracted from the installation directory (too much time has expired so I can't edit the links above). As for the start screen I wasn't aware that the font was messed up on that since I boot directly to the desktop and have metro ui/charms disabled :D
