Hello Bryan,

Plant V/S Zombies is not an opensource game.You cannot get the sourcecode of the game to modify it and use it. For changing the font of an application or do any kind of modifications it is necessary to have the sourcecode of that application.

So the conclusion is that you simply cannot change the fonts of the game Plants V/S Zombies

Hi Bryan,

Well, there is a way that you can modify Plants vs Zombies game font but I tell you that it's not going to be easy as there are a lot of things to be done before the game will be able to use the font that you wanted to incorporate.
 
 Here are the 3 Parts that you need to do for font modification in PvZ, just follow the steps below.
 
PART I FINDING THE LOCATION OF THE FONTS
The game's font is available to you even without extracting main.pak. Please note that you won't be able to find them at all in main.pak. These  were stored in a folder named "DATA" inside the game directory. A Popcap game font consist of the two files:
  • Insert font name here **insert size of the font here*.png.
  • Insert font name here **insert size of the font here*.txt.
So let us start since you know the location of the font.
 
PART II – TOOLS and MAKING
 
It is a pain to try to make the .txt file and the .png file by ourselves all the way from scratch. Good news! Popcap has already released a tool to make these fonts.
 
  • You need to download Popcap Framework. Simply search it in Google.
  • Then you need to extract it.
  • Afterwards, open the extracted folder and in it is the tools folder.
  • Run the FontBuilder.
  • You can modify and adjust the settings for you to personalize it.
  • You will notice the "tools" folder the .png and .txt of your font will be saved then.
LAST PART III – MAKE THE GAME USE IT
 
You need to copy the .png and .txt of your font.
 
Open your Plants vs Zombies (PvZ) folder, then the DATA folder.
 
You need to delete the font you want to replace and paste your own font files.
 
Make sure to rename the image of the font so it is the same with the font that you replaced called. Simply do the same with the text file.
 
Open the .txt file of your own font and search for the part:
 
LayerSetImage Main *insert the original name of your font here*
 
Make sure to rename the image of the font so it is the same with the font that you replaced called but do not delete it.
 
It is now time to test it and it should work.
 
Best of luck!
