Question How to change the fonts in TF2?

Is there an (easy) way to change the fonts in TF2? I have searched for it a lot, surprised there isn't more results about it.

I do not want to download a custom HUD or anything, I just want to replace certain fonts, such as the player chat, and the player list. Specifically making the player list font smaller.

In Google everything that comes up is regarding how you can download the tf2 font, which certainly is not what I'm asking...

Can you give a full list of changes you want to make? You're going to be downloading customized files, and I really doubt you want to do this yourself.

On the off-chance you do, it's simply a matter of changing the "tall" values for the fonts in resources/chatscheme.res

EDIT: Also, what resolution do you play TF2 at?

Okay, had no idea it would be that tough to do.
What I really want to do is reduce the size and if possible, spacing between the names in the player list when you press Tab. I often play on servers with more than 24 people, then you can't see all the players when pressing Tab.

I play it at 1920 x 1080 (my native resolution), and I am aware the fonts change a bit when you alter the resolutions, but I think the end result is the same when regarding size.

The easiest solution would be simply downloading custom 32-player scoreboard

K4F4R is absolutely right. Download a 32-man scoreboard (such as this one: http://gamebanana.com/guis/20309).


The only reason I asked what your resolution was is that different resolutions actually have different font sizes that are set separately, so I needed to know which one to tinker with.
