Previously titled, "[Chrono Trigger] Various Temporal Flux Questions"
Hello~ I'm reviving this topic because a new thought occurred.
In Chrono Trigger, item and Technique information is displayed using a nice 16px-tall variable-width font. While this looks great, it doesn't leave much room for a huge amount of text. I was wondering… has anyone figured out a way to make item descriptions use a different font? In particular, I'd like to use the fixed-width, 8x8 font that's used for item and Technique names. It would make item descriptions look like the ones in Final Fantasy III (US), but it would also increase the amount of text available for item descriptions.
Alternately, the description text box could be expanded and the text moved up by 8 pixels to allow two lines of variable-width text with the usual font. This would display one less item in the items list, though, and the shading would need editing in both the info box and the items box.
Alternately-alternately, a nice 8-by-? variable-width font, as in Chrono Trigger DS, would probably be the most ideal solution… but I imagine that would require a lot more coding, such as adding pointers to the new font and, well, adding the font, itself.
As always, thanks for any-and-all help!
