I wanna replace the default font by the Press Start P2 font, can I do this in the UPE ? Also am I able to do this directly in Platform Builder. Thanks in advance.

TingThing really just needs to just give PB things like more advanced custom menus, custom HUDS, and font options.

I know, and I really want this for 8.0, but I need to know for now how I can change fonts in the UPE.

There is probably a font category in GMS2. Just remove the old one and a new one with the same properties and the same name, to allow the code to reference it.
Sorry because my English is not very good because I'm Spanish ;) :P

Yeah, it can be done. If I had the UPE and I wanted to change that, I would do a search for the string "Player 2 Press Start" (Or whatever it says, I don't remember), and then it will show up in your search results. From there you just change the font with a simple line of code.

The UPE sounds great and all, but I love PB's simplicity. I believe that someday, the UPE will not be necessary due to what PB will be able to do.
