    Quick question. Hopefully with a quick answer.

    I am getting the Fallout 2 "Couldn't locate/load text fonts" problem. So I looked for the solution...

    "BIS FO Editor "Couldn't locate/load text fonts" error
    ------------------
    To fix this problem change the mapper2.cfg file's [system] section to the following:

    [system]
    critter_dat=H:\Games\BlackIsle\Fallout2\critter.dat
    critter_patches=H:\Games\BlackIsle\Fallout2\data
    master_dat=H:\Games\BlackIsle\Fallout2\master.dat
    master_patches=H:\Games\BlackIsle\Fallout2\data

    Where H:\ is the letter of your HD, and Games\BlackIsle\Fallout2\ is the path to the editor. You should manually locate your executable/data files and change the path accordingly.

    Fallout 2 "Couldn't locate/load text fonts" error
    ------------------
    Same thing as above except fallout2.cfg is the file you want."

    ...I don't have a file called fallout2.cfg. Help?

    EDIT: Also note I have no idea what I would do with the file if I found it.

    You should make the file yourself if it isnt there, you can PM me if you need help doing this, or I can give you a edited copy of mine.

    Basically you just make a text file and name it fallout2.cfg. There's just a few lines u need to add in, depending on the installation type you chose.
