Changing the font to Arial
#1
Hi,
Is there a way to change the font in this skin?
I use utf-8 language and the default font doesn't support that.

find the font.xml in the skins 720p folder and add a new fontset labeled arial then change *.ttf to arial.ttf.

You should then be able to select arial in the settings screen.
EDIT: Here you go; Just paste this after the end of the other fontset id in font.xml. It doesn't look too bad but there are a few places where an all caps font was used instead of an uppercase tag in the skin so it's not perfect.
Code:
    <fontset id="Arial" unicode="true">
