Thxs if you could help.

Could you please be more specific about your problem? You can use a Label node to show text on the screen.

Tried, with rich textlabel even, but that’s just a small ‘text’ in the upper left corner… I need BIG letters in my screen…

Import a font into your project (it should import as a DynamicFontData), create a DynamicFont from it, set its size to something big (50? 100?), then create a Label node, assign it your dynamic font, and write “Big word”.

Assign it your dynamic font, and write “Big word”.

Was that supposed to be a joke?

Err, how do you import a font? And I have a very good one, but that’s a true type…

Ok, but when I put my font.tres as a custom, the text of my label disappear… And there’s nothin written…

That’s my font before the godot edit, correct?

You either forgot to assign font data on your DynamicFont, its size is zero, or maybe the font has loading issues (any error in the console?).
