Unknown is looking for font replacement it's a difficult task,however you can replace emulator fonts with your PSP ones

The Yes/No dialog spacing issue is a different one. The font we're using, which is just Arial Unicode I think, is actually saying to space out the characters that much. If you can recommend an alternative font that's either completely free or comes with common software and has no rasterization restrictions, and has correct spacing, we can try that instead.

But yeah, for the ingame fonts, it's exactly as sfageas says.

That horrible kerning is normal for the Japanese font in use right now (Sazanami Gothic). The kerning is better for the English font Liberation Sans, but Dissidia uses the Japanese one and EXIT looks like it does too.

If you know any free fonts with a huge x-height (proportionately very small capital letters and very big lowercase letters), please post it in the linked thread!
