How To Mod Fonts
Keep up with the Pixel Remaster modding scene in the Moogles & Mods Discord server: https://discord.gg/bSnpVBV
Hate the default Pixel Remaster font? Yes, everyone does. That's why there are so many options for easily replacing it with one of the many custom fonts available!
Modding the font is one of the easiest mods to make of any Pixel Remaster and requires no extra plugins or custom loaders.
If you navigate to the install folder for any Pixel Remaster (that's the folder which contains the game exe file, titled "FINAL FANTASY.exe"), you should see a folder named "FINAL FANTASY_Data" (this will also contain a roman numeral for the other PRs, like the exe).
Click into that folder, and you should see another folder called "StreamingAssets". Now click into that folder.
You should now see a bunch of files like font_de.bundle, font_en.manifest, etc, etc. These are all the font files, and the two letters next to each "font_" are the different language options.
But all you have to worry about is that this folder is where you will copy your custom font files. Just paste them into this folder and overwrite what was there. All font mods should come with a zip folder where you'll find all the files you need. Probably a font_en.bundle and a font_ja.bundle.
And that's all you have to do!
I recommend to make a backup of this folder before you mod it. The files are not very large. At least make copies of "font_en.bundle" and "font_ja.bundle" if you're modding English fonts. Just make sure you don't delete any of the other font files, as the game will not work otherwise. Just overwrite the fonts you're modding.
Now to the real meat of this -- the index! Here is an organized list of all the custom fonts available for use in any of the 6 Pixel Remasters. I've organized them by category, and roughly organized them within each category. On to the modding!
There's a lot here so please follow the guide index to the right to navigate to each category.

These are all the font mods I am aware of. If you have any that I missed, or any you'd like to submit, please comment and let me know.
When any new font mods are released, I will continue to keep this list updated. I know not all of the screenshots are pretty or consistent, but I made use of what I was given. As it'd be a lot more work to have to load up each and every one of them in my game and make better screenshots.
Any questions or corrections, let me know!
