Hello SaintK and welcome to the forum,

In fact a problem with the fonts happens relatively often (even if the LARGEFONT1.STI file is the undisputed number #1 Wink).

You can try the following:
Download and extract the content of the Fonts JA2 Gold .zip file directly into the main directory of your JA2 Gold install!

If your problem still exists your install is probably corrupt and you should try it with a reinstall.

Good luck!


/EDIT:

There are a few interesting mods around there even exclusive for JA2 Gold so I want to use the opportunity to recommend at least three of them. Smile

For the JA2 Gold player who is especially interested in a realistic game experience "Dvornik's Rough Mod":

For the JA2 Gold player who is especially interested in cool weapons "Arno Dick's Weapon Mod":

And for the hardcore JA2 Gold player who is looking for the ultimate challenge "Weapon X's 8000+ enemies save games":

Hello Saint,

Well, I'm still using XP for playing around with my JA2 installs. You should try it with a complete new install, but please be aware to install your JA2 Gold NOT in the Program Files directory as mentioned in a few other threads!

wil473
[...] install clean JA2 (retail), not in the default directory that includes "Program Files (x86)"


Kaerar
Install to somewhere non-protected (e.g. C:\Games\). Program Files and personal folders (My Docs etc...) are off limits.


I hope this helps you to solve your problem or maybe you can find an answer in one of the Windows 7/Vista threads here? Good luck!


Best regards; Schein
