Fix CS:Source fonts chat for Linux

Hey!

I've had problem with fonts in CS: Source on my new installed Ubuntu 20.04 all letters are smaller and thinner in chat.

For CSS just copie the font from Windows and configured it to be used. Now the chat font in Linux looks the same as Windows and is no longer difficult to read.
Copied vgasys.fon from C:\Windows\Fonts to $home/.steam/steam/steamapps/common/Counter-Strike Source/hl2/resource .

Edited chatscheme.res in the same directory.

Under "ChatFont",  locate the setting for the yres (vertical resolution) range I'm using (768 to 1023 or subsection "3" in my case). Changed the "name" from "Verdana" to "System".

 

"ChatFont"
		{
			"1"
			{
				"name"		"Verdana"
				"tall"		"12"
				"weight"	"700"
				"yres"		"480 599"
				"dropshadow"	"1"
			}
			"2"
			{
				"name"		"Verdana"
				"tall"		"14"
				"weight"	"700"
				"yres"		"600 767"
				"dropshadow"	"1"
			}
			"3"
			{
				"name"		"System"
				"tall"		"15"
				"weight"	"700"
				"yres"		"768 1023"
				"dropshadow"	"1"
			}
			"4"
			{
				"name"		"Verdana"
				"tall"		"17"
				"weight"	"700"
				"yres"		"1024 1199"
				"dropshadow"	"1"
			}
			"5"
			{
				"name"		"Verdana"
				"tall"		"22"
				"weight"	"700"
				"yres"		"1200 10000"
				"dropshadow"	"1"
			}
		}

 

Under "CustomFontFiles", Add a new font, "3", set to "resource/vgasys.fon".

 

	CustomFontFiles
	{
		"1"		"resource/HALFLIFE2.ttf"
		"2"		"resource/HL2EP2.ttf"
		"3"		"resource/vgasys.fon"			
	}

 

vgasys.fon 

Enjoy

    • I'll give you a try again but if you happen to abuse it again it will be removed. Such as - Nominating a leader map and then leaving the server - Nominating a leader map without leading it - Knowing when the server is ready to play the specific map you nominated for in leader nomination.
