INSTALLATION
Install
Download using your preferred mod manager.
or  drop the unzipped Interface folder into your Skyrim/Data folder.


Uninstall
Uncheck in your mod manager.
or delete fonts_sovngarde.swf, fonts_sovngardeconsole.swf & fontconfig.txt


COMPATIBILITY
Sovngarde is compatible with every mod that doesn't replace the primary Everywhere or Console fonts. Basically, if you have any complimentary custom fonts, download a patch from the optional files or learn how to patch it with the tutorials here.

BUGS
Menus and dialogue display languages other than what you're playing in.

Install USSEP, then download the appropriate translation if you play in any language besides English:
DEPLFRITESPTTK

Low resolution or pixelation on the font.

For users with ENB, delete SMAA files if you use an ENB preset that uses SMAA. Be wary of using Reshade as that usually reshades your font also, which can have very visually adverse effects.

I'm getting jumbled animated letters

Outdated skyhud.txt. Please migrate your old skyhud.txt to the new one properly. To do this copy the values of your old config into the new one. If there are settings missing in the new config, ignore those settings.

TUTORIALS

Patching Sovngarde for compatibility with other fonts ~ A Guide by Talwick

1. Copy fonts_sovngarde.swf & fonts_sovngardeconsole.swf into the Interface folder.
2. Open fontconfig.txt in Notepad+.
Add:
fontlib "Interfacefonts_sovngarde.swf"
fontlib "Interfacefonts_sovngardeconsole.swf"

... to the top of the document.
3. Edit the following values to the font names listed and save a backup of your fontconfig.txt file prior to doing so.
map "$ConsoleFont" = "Sovngarde Console" Normal
map "$StartMenuFont" = "Sovngarde" Normal
map "$DialogueFont" = "Sovngarde" Normal
map "$EverywhereFont" = "Sovngarde" Normal
map "$EverywhereBoldFont" = "Sovngarde" Normal
map "$EverywhereMediumFont" = "Sovngarde" Normal

4.
These instructions apply to all languages and files since I took the time to standardized the file & font names regardless of which file you're using from V8.
