If I modify the same font of PC version of the game, this bug does not happen, and also,
modified font works on the game as well, however, if I modify the PS3 version of the font,
then the game crashes, and this is the only noticeable symptom that seems related to the

> What version of the product are you using? Is it "nightly build"? Which operating system
do you have?
I tried 5.00 - 8.01, they all seem to have the same problem. More importantly, none of
those versions was able to produce the working font for PS3.

and finally, Thanks for your awesome tool again, for PC, it works great on almost all
What do you mean by "Simply modifying".
Please specify steps you can do to reproduce the problem starting with original GFX file
to notworking GFX file.
Font can be "simply modified" in many ways, some of them may work, others may be buggy, so
please tell us what exactly you do with the fonts, thanks.
I am attaching those GFX files and screenshot here, because we do not like external links
much - they can expire :-).
@honfika sure I was able to load the game with changed files, my repacking wasn't the
issue, I was able to use russian font from the game itself
@JPEXS sorry for the external links,
the modification that I do, is that I choose any of those fonts inside the GFX,
in this case there are 5 of them, Jixellation x 2, JectRex, Isolation, and Nostromo cond
then change the Source font then click Embed to add characters with updating the texts.
This is all I do, which works great on the PC version of the game.. while the modified
font on PS3 just keeps crashing, like I mentioned before, I was able to load unmodified
RUSSIAN font replaced with FONTS_EN.GFX just fine, so there is no repacking issue.
Finally, like it's shown in the picture, the name tag shows duplicated names on PS3
( Jixellation, Jixellation ) I'm not quite sure if this is related,
I think I got some clue, it was related to data encryption inside the swf, the font of PS3
seems in need of encrypted data to run unlike PC font.
http://forum.xentax.com/viewtopic.php?f=35&t=10450&start=30 <- This is an old article that got me some clue,
currently trying to follow this method to rebuild the font.
Sorry about the confusion, I wish I could edit my previous posts instead of making three
posts, yeah the bug with duplicated nametags is completely gone in the build 1454, however
the game still crashes when the part that reads the font. I'm posting my modified font
just incase that help you debugging.
Here's the log I pulled from PS3 through my debugger.
UI.PAK is the file that contains the FONTS_EN.GFX
The euro sign is the last character in the font - that may be related. If the character is
somewhere before last, there are more changes needed in the SWF - offsets.
Please do some experiments with small changes (yet working - not working) which will
locate the bug.
For example insert only one character somewhere in the middle (replace "A") - in the Embed
dialog there is input field on the bottom to insert single characters. If the game does
not work with it, then it might be problem with the offsets as I said.
If it does work for you, then again, do as little steps as possible and test it in the
game again, to locate which one of the steps caused problem.
Then we can fix it. Thanks!
Unfortunately, I cannot test it in the game myself, so it is up to you.
@JPEXS Thanks again for your suggestion, I did some tests with various setup..
I added an additional char "가" at the end, it loaded fine without any issue.
I added two additional chars "가나" at the end, then it reproduced the issue right away
[Black screen after loading trophy as always has been]
I replaced an existing char "9" with a different font, this also crashed , like TEST#2
Any more suggestion you'd like to provide?
@honfika, it's getting interesting, it seems like adding certain char causes crashing.
I tried what you suggested, and as a result, adding "나" caused an immediate crash, on
the other hand, adding "가" didn't cause the problem at all again.
in case that helps, I'm attaching those two fonts I created with the nightly build,
however, I wasn't able to replace "9" with something else other than just the "9" with a
different font, it requires a lot of modification on HXD, I just couldn't guess all that
stuff encrypted as in BASE64 [definecompactedfont specific]
@honfika, as you requested, I also tested with a single char, the first one is "ㄱ" which
derived from the letter "가" that loaded fine, but the 2nd one is "ㄴ" which derived
from the letter "나" also crashed just like the test with "나".
@honfika both fonts loaded fine, though it didn't display texts due to missing other fonts
that used for subtitle, UI and etc.
btw I was able to create a working font for middle earth - shadow of mordor, it also uses
the same definecompactedfont. it's weird that Alien is being so picky about the font..
Yes, missing texts are ok.
Could you please try the attached gfx files?
Wrong.gfx should be wrong i guess... it is the same as PS3_FONTS_EN_modified2.GFX with the
In Edges*.gfx files I've removed the edges of the wrong character one by one.
