Bristol, Fonts and System Files needed 04/11/2020 at 22:17 #133563

I'm desperately trying to get the Bristol.exe sim working and am told (by the main man Geoff) that I'm missing fonts, based on the attached image. He said to post on here to ask if anyone out there has the files which they can share.

None of the links in other threads seem to exist anymore. Despite installing Loader for the newer/updated sims, Geoff informed me that the Loader install does not contain all of the 'system files' and fonts which are required by some of the older exe sims.

Would someone help me with the fonts plus any system files I might need please? And if someone has the last version of Bristol.exe (which I believe to be v2.***) I would be eternally grateful.

Mine is a beta version from years ago v0.686 This works fine but is obviously an exe file vice via the Loader

I've been playing about with some of the old exe installers on a fresh installation of Windows. Annoyingly I've once got the fonts working and every time I've since tried to reproduce how I managed that, it's failed in a similar way to your result. It doesn't seem to just be the case of a missing font file though. I'll continue experimenting to see if I can pin down a route that works...

In the meantime could you double check that Simsig is present in the C:\Windows\Fonts director, it should look the same as in this previous thread.
