Introduction: Make Your Own Custom Characters in Windows.

Picture of Make Your Own Custom Characters in Windows.

In this instructable I will show you how to make custom characters with an application built into Windows. Yeah and stuff.

Beware of the pics that are made in paint. They can be scary.

Step 1: Stuffs You'll Be Needing.

You'll need a computer.

You'll also need this thing called Windows.

Step 2: The Hunt!

Time to track down the character thing!

Ok now this is very risky! OMG we are going to to a system folder. Make sure you only hunt the target and not other things cause you will be arrested. (Don't delete the Appimals!)

Ok hop in your Hummer (My computer) and follow the map below. Once you find the target (eudcedit.eve) SHOOT IT! (open)

Step 3: Make Your Character!

The hunt is over BUT the mission is not complete! Now we have to make the Character! Oh yeah when a box pops up when u first open it just hit ok. So make your font and stuff. There are tools on the side for different effects and stuff. Have fun!

Step 4: Mission Complete!

Like we just made our thing so we wanna use it right? YES! Ok so lets save it! Be careful the file menu is know to be deadly! Click on it! Are you still alive? Ok good! Now go to Font Links. Ok so you pick you path this time. You can either Link it to all fonts or just one. I pick all but thats just me. So if you made up your mind do your stuff and click OK. If it asks you if u want to save it hit yes or ok or something good like that! Ok now open the character map (start>programs>accessorys>system tools>character map). Click the drop down box and find "All Fonts (Private Characters)". There you should find your character. Copy it to the clip board and paste it somewhere. Enjoy your new character and stuff :P

what does linking with fonts mean?

YellowBlu Co. (author)2012-03-27

If you link it with all fonts does it replace the fonts with the font you made all the time?

PyroMaster007 (author)2009-01-14

so, can you past pics that you drew and scanned into your pc into the font proccesor thingy?

alfonso (author)2007-06-03

instead of going through all that you could just type alt+r and then type in eudcedit into the run input box

lookatmygrlyfont (author)alfonso2007-06-05

lazy way ;)

or you could use that handy tool called... drum roll please... SEARCH

codongolev (author)jeffconnelly2008-08-31

which takes longer than alt r. but I like your avatar, at least.

iBurn (author)codongolev2008-10-12

Please excuse my bad English im only 14 years old and from Austria (we have NO kangurus in here and we speak german) Good instructable ! How did you find out about that ? Is it possible to create bigger Letters (with more Pixel) ?

umm i dont think but you could try resizing your font in like word or something to see if it gets bigger.

grungehead (author)2007-06-06

how do you delete a font that you've created?

dunno. it maybe in the fonts folder in the control panel but im not sure.

aiden120000 (author)2007-06-01

Timmyd_2 (author)2007-05-31

Great Instructable, grlyfont. How well does the character transfer between machines? That is, will it appear to people who receive email documents or openoffice documents on a another computer as it appears on your own?

um i really dont know? i tried pasting it into a a brower and it came up as a ?. maybe it will work in a word document or something. if you wanna try it out and report back that would be cool :)

schorhr (author)lookatmygrlyfont2007-06-01

The person recieving a document needs to font installed. Some programs offer font inclusion or converting fonts to curves to avoid problems.

To save some time (instead of digging through the folders), you can just type the program name in the run dialog (Windows Key+R).

Yes but that takes away from the mission you are on to track down the app ;)

robodud3 (author)2007-05-30
