Have a look at font.ini in the Txt directory. Soldat uses two fonts, and you can change both of them; however there is no other way to customize them down to such a low level. Try replacing BankGothic with something and see if the result's what you'd want.

Meh. I need to change only the "You killed message". The font I'm planning to use is VERY hard to read when it's size is under ~16 :/

There are only 2 fonts used in soldat

One is for weapon menu, scores, chat and kill console. The other is for everything else (main menu, screen messages etc...)

You'd have to change most of the text in the game if you were to do what you want.

What exactly is it you want to change about the font? You may be able to achieve it without changing any fonts if you're clever.

Meh. I want to use a completly different font. So I really doubt you can do it without actually changing it :P

Also, since I don't want to start a new topic, how can I add a "tail" to my gostek? (I know you can't add a new file, but, is there any way to stick it on another body part to make it look atleast half decent?

Short answer: no.
I attend grammar school, last grade, and ignorance is all around me. Well, good for them. Ignorance is bliss.

I could probably do it for you. Just give me the font you want the "You killed..." to look like and I could probably pull it of.
