[1.1.33] Crash on load when using Wingdings

Post by RandomComputerUser »

When I tried replacing the default fonts with variants of Wingdings, the game crashed on load.

I copied the font files wingding.ttf, WINGDNG2.TTF, and WINGDNG3.TTF from C:\Windows\Fonts to C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Factorio\data\core\fonts. I then modified the C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Factorio\data\core\locale\en\info.json file, which is attached to this post.

I expected to have a nearly unplayable but still functional game (the only difference from the default being that Wingdings would be used as the main UI font), but instead, when I tried opening the game, a black screen appeared, followed by an error screen and crash a couple of seconds later. The log file is attached to this post.

Edit: fixed the attachments

Thanks for the report.
I fixed the crash, but the font library we use doesn't support encoding of the glyph table used in wingding.ttf, so it won't load.
