FONTOOL is an application that is able to change the fonts on your PSP without having a PC nearby. It can store up to 50 fonts and is programmed in C by Tepsicore_93. Available in both Spanish as well as English.

This was one of the contest entries for the Scenery Beta 2009 (PSP Applications).


Note: Flashers or features that require alterations in the flash of the device can brick your PSP. Please backup your important data accordingly and use with caution.

Copy the FONTOOL folder in the unzipped /PSP/GAME/ folder to the /PSP/GAME/ folder in the Memory Stick.

Open the FUENTES folder in the folder, and insert one PSP font (*.pgf) for each folder from FUENTE1 to FUENTE50.

The Default font file is *ltn0.pgf. It has been renamed and placed in the FUENTE folder.
