  • I've downvoted this question, because it's not really on topic. It's not tagged with a game, plus we don't really do fonts. – David Yell Sep 4 '14 at 10:04

    This question appears to be off-topic because it is about game design and specially fonts. – David Yell Sep 4 '14 at 10:05
  • Hell if I knew how to tag it properly, but I replied just in case this is useful for someone to know. The screen shot is from EU3, but the same engine is used for more Paradox games. – Martin Sojka Sep 4 '14 at 10:11

    @DavidYell there are a few other questions about fonts that are considered on topic. (gaming.stackexchange.com/questions/76720/… and gaming.stackexchange.com/questions/161926/… ) – Elva Sep 4 '14 at 10:14
  • @KevinvanderVelden Yeah, if I'd said it was on topic, someone would have said it wasn't. I gambled wrong today it seems ;) – David Yell Sep 4 '14 at 11:41

The Clausewitz engine (the screen shot is of one of the games using it, Europa Universalis III) has fonts as bitmaps saved in the gfx\fonts\ sub-folder of the game's installation folder. For mods, it's in the same folder of the mod's sub-folder.


I ran the font through Identifont and I this font is, IMVHO, Adobe Garamond. The match, especially with the number forms like 4 and 9, is basically perfect.


You can find names of all the fonts in .fnt files in /gfx/fonts. Just open a file in question with a text editor.
