As we all know, there's a D/P font in Essentials...
but whenever I try to use it, I can't because the words get squished up. It's a nice font and I tried fixing the problem by messing with the scripts, but I don't really think it's the scripts.

Can someone tells me why it occurs?

I don't think the font has any spaces in it. I don't do fonts, so I couldn't fix it. If someone else can provide an alternative font, I can add that in.

The font does have spaces. I've compared the RS font and the DP font and the only difference (besides the look of the characters) was the fact RS has a character named ".notdef" and the DP font didn't have that character. Therefore, I do not think it has to do with the font.

Test the font in MS-Word or something, then tell us...


EDIT:
Actully you could add 2 spaces, this is an ANCIENT PROBLEM.... I never figured it out...

Any idea what it could be then?

Nevermind my previous posts, the space character was invalid.
Download a fixed version here: http://www.mediafire.com/?4boas3o7382i7of

EDIT
In order to make this work, change line 243 in PokemonOptions to this:
Code:
   ["Pokémon Diamond and Pearl"],

You do have to download the fixed file though, the name of the fixed file is changed internally to "Pokémon Diamond and Pearl" in order to distinguish it from the old one, "Power Clear".

I've added your new font into Essentials. Thanks!

The only issue with it is that the é looks like ê instead.

I've found another bug.



Note the "oe" for the female symbol. The Male symbol appears incorrectly too.
