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.

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:

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Outdated skyhud.txt.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.

  • Koveich created and implemented English, French, Italian, German, Russian, Spanish, Polish & Portuguese.
  • underthesky taught me how to make the font alignment patch, which has improved every release since his help.
  • Talwick wrote the guide to using Sovngarde with a book font replacer.
  • Props to the amazing testing team!! Sovngarde light came into being because of your support. Thank you.
  • Drukaatie Burtie is an open source font that can be downloaded here: and was created by Kārlis Kalviškis. Since it's open source, I took the font files found at the link provided and expanded the language support to include Polish & Russian so I could use it with this mod.

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