This will make the font when enchanting stuff readable, just replaced it with the normal minecraft text.
Navigate to your minecraft folder (ex, %appdata%/.minecraft)
Open up the bin folder.
Use 7zip or another archive program to open minecraft.jar.
Replace the original file (alternate.png) inside the font folder with the one linked below.
Read the silly things that don't seem to mean anything anyway.
All you did was rename default.png to alternate.png. Do you really think this needed to be a "mod?" For all the effort you're making people go through, you might as well have simply told them to rename the file themselves, except there's already a dozen threads explaining how to do just that.
People are lazy, and so it seems are you. I took the time to remove the excess. Fail troll is fail.
I'm sorry that you think making a reasonable comment is trolling. "Removing the excess" as you put it is irrelevant, since plugging the default.png in works perfectly well. It's not laziness to not take extra steps when those extra steps do absolutely nothing but waste time.
My point still stands whether you want to shout troll or not.
Looks like he did more then renamed default.png to alternate.png. The file looks like the original alternate.png but decoded. That takes work so he isn't lazy and yes it is a mod because its a modification to the game, even if it is small.
But there is one thing wrong with your decoded alternate.png, above the lowercase O is a random line. Doesn't bother when reading in game, it just bothered me when I first saw it. Other than that, thanks you very much for the mod.
Wow, go afk for a bit and there's already 50 downloads.
Hmm, depending on what will happen with the final release this will turn in to a normal readable + different font option.
First thing I thought of with the new update stuff was Morrowind... so the enchanting must obviously be daedric runes.
Redoing the alternate again now, may not get it up tonight though. Intend to see if people can be gathered to try out a race for wool map as well so should get it up tom. May do a third as a full conversion mod I've been thinking of.
To all those who say he's just renamed default.png, actually look at the .pngs. The alternate text is pulled down to about halfway down the image for a inexplicable reason. But the text in default.png is pushed to the top to make room for numerals and symbols.
