Question Winamp Playlist editor default font?

Hello There Winamp Forum.

I wonder if anyone knows the fontname of the font that you can see when you have the winamp playlist editor minimized?



I didn't know where to post this put I hope you don't will be hatin' to much if it's in the wrong section

Thanks!
Regards

Believe it's a custom font,and not a font file either it's a .png. You can find it in the modern skin directory, on a normal install it would be here...

C:\Program Files\Winamp\Skins\Winamp Modern\shade\songtickerfont.PNG

Oh! Thank you very much!

Do you maybe know if it's possible to add this font to Photoshop?
Thanks for reply!

Hi everybody

It should be pretty difficult or even impossible to include a png font among the shared fonts in Windows (Photoshop can use all fonts files located in the font directory of Windows). You rather load a true font file from Internet, you can google "free font" and find thousands of results. Sure you find there what you're looking for.

Another question about fonts : I couldn't find the way to use a custom or alternate font in the playlist and ml windows, or to increase the size of the standard used one (I'm getting a bit older now, and I'd like to rest my eyes). Any known turnaround somewhere, whether in winamp or in Windows? (I'm with XP PRO SP3 and very glad of this).

BTW, eye blink to Mr Jones

Very easy to change font, in preferences, look for 'playlist' settings. If you install a font on your computer first, it will show up in settings.

I'm still looking for a way to force a font in my skins...when I change font in standardframe.xml, there are no changes to the skin, just the titlebar...I'm sure I'm looking in the wrong place.
