It is little known, except among [[BZFlag_on_IRC|#bzflag irc]] visitors, that there is a second font designed specially for console use included with [[BZFlag 2.0.8|BZFlag 2.0]]. It's called ProFont and I adapted it to [[BZFlag]] after seeing an attempt by [[DTRemenak]] to do the same out of a TTF file (which didn't turn out too well); it has a 50% transparent black border for readability in the sky and other bright places. It might be a bit small for high-resolution screens at its default size (8pt), but it's far more readable than Vera Mono in this author's opinion. The best way to describe it is to show you what it looks like.  If you want to see some screenshots before changing your BZFlag to it, check them out here:

+
 
+
The first is of the normal (8pt) font, and the second one is of the "micro" (6pt) font.

+
So if you decide you'd like to try it out for yourself...
+
To change your console font to ProFont, locate your config file:
+
 
+
For Windows: <code>C:\Documents and Settings\<User>\<User's Documents>\My BZFlag Files\2.0\config.cfg</code>
+
 
+
For Mac OS X: <code>~/Library/Application\ Support/2.0/config.cfg</code>
+
 
+
For Linux and relatives: <code>~/.bzf/2.0/config.cfg</code>
+
 
+
 
+
Open the config in a text editor and add this line to it:
+
 
+
set consoleFont profont
+
 
+
Save the file, then start [[BZFlag]] and see the new font in action.
