Default Is font customisation important?

The proportional text routines I'm working on have a hard-to-fix bug - the current screen of text is messed up when the player changes fonts mid-game. I'm just wondering whether this is likely to be an issue for the average player, or whether it's such a non-issue that it's barely worth documenting. :)

Once I can read the text, the font isn't 100% important for me.
HOWEVER, If I could change the font if the default one isn't good for me, it could be very useful.

Well, once the 99.9% of games I have I can't change the font, for me, once I can understand the text is all right for me.

My opinion, of course.

See ya! =]

For me it would be completely a non-issue. I never bother to change the font once I've found one that I like.

I'm assuming this is for the Real Live version right? I've got the AVG 32 one right now, but when/if I get that one, it doesn't seem like it would be that big of an issue. As long as I can read it, I'm happy. Thanks for all the work.

Agreed. I am also one that is happy to be able to read it, so I'm not too picky unless the font is really distracting.

Same as the above, with emphasis on the thanks.

yeah, font is usually not an issue for me, as long as it is readable all good by me.

Me too, and it'd take a pretty whacked out font for me to judge it 'not readable'

I personally prefer large-size(allowing me to clearly count every single stroke for the kanji with many many strokes), standard looking font.

He is clearly talking about the english version, and I doubt you will be analying the strokes of any kanji in that.

Well... there are a couple of places where people write things in Japanese, so there are, oh, maybe about 6 or 7 kanji left in the game... ;)

They're done as bitmaps, though, so font selection won't affect them in the slightest.

Default font looks good as it is.
