This mod used Hora's Roboto Font mod as a template.
Special thanks to all these people for helping me figure it out. They all contributed tools and information to make this possible.
~From the BnS Buddy Discord: Ashllay, G Spot , Epic, Kayo, and KimCoder~


This mod uses the exact same font as the JP client's UI. This is V1 of this mod as I am new to modding in UE4 but everything seems to be working correctly. JP uses two fonts but I am unsure where the other one is used. The FTT_NPNewRodin-DB font is the one that most of the UI uses. Created as more of an accessibility mod for myself because I had trouble reading the awful font used in the Western client. I wanted to get this done asap since the UE3 JP Font mod helped me read the game better for years. It is my hope this will also help other people who have trouble reading the default font.
This mod also does not interfere with the emoji bar like in UE3.

I will make a tutorial on how to mod fonts soon if no one else does. Please see this tutorial by Wiper008 on general UE4 modding and font modding:

HERE IS A FIX IF YOUR GAME DOESN'T LOAD WHILE HAVING THIS MOD AND A VOICEPACK MOD ACTIVE:
Just put "Mod_" in front of the name of your other mods or make a folders with "Mod_" at the start like I did and drag your other mod(s) into that.
I have no clue why this issue happens.


Changelog
- There is now a v1.1 in the new download. Includes the HTT_FReishoR_B font that was also in the original UE3 JP Font Mod; replaces the DroidSerif font in the Western client. I'm still unsure where this other font is used but I decided to include it anyways. V1 does not include the extra font.​
- Included a How to Use and Known Issues document.​
- Included preview pictures of the UI.​
- Regarding the TW region: There are issues with certain Chinese characters not supported by this font. So I'm removing that it's fully supported from the title. The mod is still included in the download if you wish to use it. Please see the comments on why it's not fully supported.​
- Regarding the RU region: It has some issues with the UI when using this font, so I'm not putting it as officially supported but you can grab one of the test mods I did in the comments if you still wish to use it.​

Would it be possible to do this with the KR font too?
Edit: Done! https://www.bnsbuddy.com/threads/mod-ue4-kr-font-for-na-eu.2593/
Others have confirmed to me this is what it is supposed to look like.

Yes! But I have never used the KR Font mod in UE3. I made it just now and could you confirm that everything looks as it should? It seems the KR client also uses two fonts for the UI as well, so I included both but the second one is just not commonly seen in the game. If everything looks fine, I'll upload it.

I had someone ask me on Discord if I could make it for TW but I had a suspicion that this would be an issue because the JP font is a modified font meant to support their alphabet and the regular latin alphabet. So Chinese characters may have had issues due to just not being made in the font. I couldn't fully test since I don't have have access to the TW server. I had the person who request it test it really fast. I'll add it to known issues. Thanks for reporting it.

Is it suitable for a Russian game client?
Super sexy font!!!!!!
I would be happy to make it available for RU but I can't test it, so I have made a WiP for you to see if it will work. Another player had told me that the font for RU is the Fira_Sans one in the files. If this mod doesn't work, it can be for two reasons:

- I replaced the wrong font. Please upload your Pak0-Local file so I can take a look at the fonts used in your region and I can give you a new test mod. You would be able to tell because your default font for the game will be intact.
- The font unfortunately does not support the Russian alphabet, since it was made for Japanese and Latin alphabets, so your entire font will be bugged in-game. This is a reported issue with Chinese characters for the TW region as well, as certain characters do not display.
I hope it will work!

If you can solve the problem of insufficient Chinese display

very good

Unfortunately I don’t know how to contribute your hard work

You are the best

Thanks for the screenshot and pak. I was able to find 4 different fonts that could possibly be used. I also found out I renamed the Fira font not like it is in the xml file, so I included the correct name this time. It's still difficult for me to tell which font is actually used even with the screenshot due to them being similar, but I went ahead and included 3 mods for you to try. They must be loaded separately to see which one replaces the font. Let me know which folder worked and hopefully the alphabet is supported fully.
Also ignore the first 3 fonts, as those are only used in KR and come with every Pak0 for all regions.

Unfortunately the problem is with the font file itself and not the mod. I only converted the font file so it can be used within the game and have no control over the actual supported characters. The font file was designed by a company in Japan, so it would have been up to them to offer support and design the missing Chinese characters. You can find more info about this font here: https://fonts.adobe.com/fonts/fot-rodin-pron

Is it possible to fill in the missing characters in TW just by replacing the font file?
If you can, consider CJK

Yes, in theory, this font can work with the game. Font modding is exactly that, you just replace the font file and trick the game into loading this file by renaming it to the font that your region uses.
But the issue for me is that I have no way to test this font because I don't play in TW or can even write these characters. Not all fonts are actually compatible with the game, so it's why I said "in theory". When I was figuring out this type of mod, I found a "copycat" for the JP font because I did not know yet I could just use a file contained in the game already for it. The JP font is actually a paid font only and while I did find it online, there were no free downloads so I took a copycat font. The copycat had the exact same latin alphabet but for some reason, it doesn't work in the game. Here is what it looked like in the game. You can see it's almost the same but everything is out of place. The game can be finicky in what fonts it can use, so I cannot release an untested or potentially broken mod due to the TW region's client being inaccessible to me. Even the TW version of the JP font did not get fully tested; was only able to be tested by 1 player but I released it because it was functional enough for the player that requested it.

It's why I will make a tutorial on font modding soon so that others can make their own mods. I just need to test out tools others have given me to make sure they work properly for the tutorial.

Large letter spacing I think.
Here the question of locale support in one font or another, I think.
But it crawls out beyond the boundaries of the buttons.

I'm going to assume this is the FiraSans folder you are showing? If so, there is one other option I can try so that perhaps the letters can fit better where they are leaving the UI elements. From my previous testing, this option in the Unreal Editor can affect the way the font looks in the game. May or may not work, though. It varies with the font.

You can try the new mod I attached. If you didn't use the FiraSans mod, please let me know which one did work from the ones I gave you so I can make this adjustment to it. If it doesn't fix it, then it means there is some compatibility issues with the font itself and the way it displays the Russian alphabet inside the game, which I am unable to fix on my end with my current expertise. I'm not sure if any setting could be adjusted in the game's files that controls the way font fits with UI elements yet.

Looking forward to your teaching

I hope to solve the problem of TW omissions by then
Another modder has made a tutorial for general UE4 modding and font modding before I could get to making mine, so I edited the first post of this thread with the video tutorial. Wishing you success in your font modding!
