View Full Version : Add Fonts to Your Game

29-03-12, 12:45 PM

Create a folder called Fonts inside the C:Championship Manager 01-02\Data folder then copy any fonts you want to use into that folder, then select them inside the game settings.

We can use only 20 fonts in game (otherwise they won't be displayed)

Only TrueType font files will work - .ttf

Do not use OpenType font files - .otf




Enter Sansman - DGL Bold

I've tried adding the fonts as well today (Windows 7) and I just get the error message "cannot load fonts" and the game doesn't load

25-08-13, 03:39 PM
as dermo said, does the font exist in Windows as well as cm?

10-12-13, 10:21 PM
Hi all,

i've tried loads of the fonts in the downloads section but i can't seem to find one that gives good spacing on the results screens

e.g - 1 : 1 not 1: 1 or 1:1 etc

The only font that seems to space things nicely is the 'traditional' font that comes with the game

Has anyone found a decent font out there that does the same thing but is a better looking font?!


PS if posted in the wrong area can a mod move it - cheers!!

10-12-13, 11:02 PM
Always a matter of taste

Eurostile LT Demi, Alte Haas Grotesk Bold & VAG Rounded BT are 3 of the most favoured ones

All are in Downloads > Fonts

Check them out and see which you favour. Mine is Alte Haas Grotesk Bold.

You can add fonts from C:\Windows\Fonts to the game too, Arial Bold looks well

Here's another 20, some are quiet decent and some are just blatant filler :P


11-12-13, 10:32 PM
Derm you are a gent!! :party:

13-12-13, 01:26 PM

I agree most Fonts are filler.

My absolute favorite is Denmark Regular. Not the best in terms of spacing tho, beware. My main focus is quick player atts evaluation.

Other 'bookmarked' fonts are:
-Express freeway
-Alberta bold
-Alte Haas grotesk bold
-Amerika Sans

Just like the 1st response says, it is mostly a matter of personal taste

16-12-13, 03:03 PM
Could someone please upload the "Alte Haas Grotesk Bold" to another site? The site 4shared.com wants me to log in with Facebook and stuff, and I don't trust these sites one bit.

16-12-13, 03:19 PM

4shared is not the worst of them. Takes about 30 seconds to set up an account with an email address. Sendspace links expire after 7 days if not uploaded to an account so the graphics and quieter links tend to die fairly quickly

16-12-13, 08:04 PM
Thanks for uploading. :)

Hello all,

I bring you some new fonts to freshen up your CM.

Where can we download these? That bottom one looks nice.

22-01-14, 07:10 PM
There is a load in the download section.

If not there, try dafont.com they have some different ones.

Some don't always work well though and make the currency sign or accented letters disappear.

22-01-14, 07:28 PM

Sorry colml, I could have sworn I had added the download link.

No problem, i think i'll start using Champagne & Limousines Bold

23-03-14, 11:57 PM
Found this website, some nice fonts in here http://www.jerseyfont.com/
Some of the are .otf, convert them to .ttf here http://www.freefontconverter.com/

24-03-14, 01:19 AM
Good stuff Colm :ok:

Hard to beat www.dafont.com for free font's.

There are so many great fonts that are ruined for use the game due to lack of accents or symbols

05-04-14, 05:51 PM
this has never worked for me, not on PC or mac. shame.

05-04-14, 09:25 PM
If it didn't work on PC you weren't following the instructions. I'd assume Mac would require fonts designed for a Mac

05-04-14, 09:33 PM
There is program High-Logic font creator with which you can edit fonts, create font or convert them otf <-> ttf ;)


06-04-14, 08:37 PM
If it didn't work on PC you weren't following the instructions. I'd assume Mac would require fonts designed for a Mac

i followed the instructions for the PC to the letter. they were just never there in the game.

as for the mac, i've followed the same process but again, nothing.

06-04-14, 08:59 PM
try adding them to C:\Windows\Fonts and then CM0102 Data\Fonts folder

06-04-14, 09:06 PM
You sometimes have to restart the game if you add them with CM open.

07-04-14, 01:33 AM
You sometimes have to restart the game if you add them with CM open.

i've restarted many times.

try adding them to C:\Windows\Fonts and then CM0102 Data\Fonts folder

ok. will try that.

07-04-14, 01:45 AM
try adding them to C:\Windows\Fonts and then CM0102 Data\Fonts folder

nah, didn't work. well, i did the mac version of this. background pics & fonts seem beyond me on the mac.

no worries, i appreciate the help.

25-06-14, 06:11 PM
I've done both - everything as said in this thread, and still I get the same error.

25-06-14, 06:36 PM
Have you got more than 20 fonts in there?

25-06-14, 06:42 PM
Nope. Have like 3.

25-06-14, 07:23 PM
what is 'the same error'? do you mean you are using a mac?

25-06-14, 07:31 PM
No, PC. I meant the same error as others reported, the "Cannot load fonts" one.

25-06-14, 07:40 PM
Have you installed them in C:\Windows\Fonts too?

25-06-14, 07:48 PM
Yes. I've done everything that was said in this thread. In fact, two of the three fonts I already had in C:\Windows\Fonts.

25-06-14, 07:58 PM
Only thing I can think of is that its a .otf and not a .ttf

Try this pack and see if any at all load http://www.champman0102.co.uk/downloads.php?do=file&id=71

25-06-14, 08:07 PM
I used font pack #2 and they are all .ttf

25-06-14, 08:28 PM
Okay I decided to try something... using the "stock" Data it works just fine. Using the March 2014 data update it does not.

25-06-14, 08:34 PM
Okay sorry for wasting your time, I've figured it out and made it go!

25-06-14, 08:37 PM
What you do so others know for future?

17-02-15, 08:54 PM
Is there a way to know if a font will have symbols without installing it? The effort of downloading every font and checking it in cm is too much for me :D

17-02-15, 10:06 PM
The ones I posted all symbols work, because I went through ur pain testing them :D

You can add 20, then change them within a new game in settings

20-02-15, 10:58 PM
Look down along this link colm, it shows the symbols that are included, you essentially just click on the font to open the view to all the letters


Should help avoid downloading fonts without money symbols and the likes

22-06-15, 03:13 PM
I'm playing with Gobold Regular now ( http://www.dafont.com/it/gobold.font ), it looks o.k.
Even if I had to set $ and not € because in this one and many other fonts "€" symbol is missing.
Then I tried Stentiga, but many letters and words don't appear.
Can the problem be I'm playing 800x600 windowed mode?

23-06-15, 11:03 AM
Not all fonts sizes are the same as others i.e. size 10 for one font might be bigger than size 10 for another. Depends on the scale used to create the font originally

15-02-16, 09:00 PM
Hi there,

Cant install my VAG rounded ttf font. First installed on C:/windows, then in a "font" folder in the data one, then restart computer and still not available from the settings screen....

Any idea?? Thanks in advance ;)

15-02-16, 09:13 PM
Solved. My folder was named "Font" and not "Fonts"...

24-07-18, 12:10 PM
Does anyone know if a font can be made bigger? I like the clingy font, but some characters are missing, is there anyway to make Arial Bold bigger for example?

25-07-18, 06:33 PM
As far as I know, through the game no. If the memory does not mislead me, the font size is a feature inherent in the font itself, so if you want a larger font you should change the same font through special programs.
Correct me if I'm wrong.

01-08-18, 08:27 AM

Anyone know which Font this is? Is it possible downloading anywhere?

It's the default Futuristic font that comes with the vanilla game

01-08-18, 11:43 AM
THX Dermo

can it be downloaded somewhere?

01-08-18, 11:57 AM
THX Dermo

can it be downloaded somewhere?

It's in your settings mate. If you go to game settings you'll have a traditional and futuristic option. :ok:

01-08-18, 12:14 PM
thx GF

wow :O)

So just by changing the FONT i can get the screen, to look like the one on the pic?

01-08-18, 02:40 PM
The font, yes. The rest is done with a combo of patches and color scheme changes

02-10-18, 10:15 AM

I've been using this since the World Cup, really like it!

I'm sad enough that a font change can really ignite enthusiasm for the game again, so I'm constantly changing.

Been using EURASIA BOLD for years,not too big not too small and fits in perfectly IMHO...It's the dogs wotsits as far as I'm concerned!!....:rockon::rockon::rockon:


12-06-19, 12:57 PM
Hey people! So I've been on full remodeling CM mode lately and one of the things that bugged me was the fact that futuristic is a shitty font for certain color schemes (ie. Barcelona, Eibar, Levante) at least for my eyes and made me squint.

So a couple of years ago I got into fonts/design due to my work on digital advertising and there is actually a study (a constant study) of how to improve fonts for websites, apps, etc. (this is done so your eyes won't get tired and you keep online as much as you can or want without getting the need to remove your eyes from the screen)


I remembered this and tried a couple of fonts that I knew were easy on the eyes and I decided to stick with Open Sans:






You can find Open Sans (there is a whole family of it, so you can check out which thickness fits you better I use SemiBold) on https://fonts.google.com/specimen/Open+Sans

Feel free to look through Google Fonts, this is a Google project from a few years ago I think and the fonts you will get there (free!!) are specially made for screens and high reading times (such as looking for gems in the transfer market or just reading through 50+ matches so your team wins the CL).

As this is a Google project with the web in mind, you won't find symbols issues since the company is global.


06-10-19, 11:26 AM
I love that size of the Clingy font, but I hate the fact it is missing symbols, does anyone know of anything similar that is the same size and has all of the symbols?
