Hello, welcome to the OpenMW community!

The correct place to submit anything about mod problems or issues is the "Mod Compatibility" section.

So, I see your problem is about fonts, can you provide the mod you are referring to? So i can test it and create a new issue in the bugtracker if necessary.

I am not sure about your case about IP ban, i think you should talk about it to the admins.

here it is.

and after installing the mods, you should modify fonts in morrowind.ini like this:

[Fonts]
;Font 0=magic_cards_regular
Font 0=smallbatang4
;Font 0=KyeolHanMephisto
;Font 0=KyeolHan
Font 1=century_gothic_font_regular
Font 2=daedric_font

Are you re-running the ini importer after changing that?

Yes i am.

But sometimes it just get failed to import and give me an error message like:
Arguments:
--game-files --encoding win1252 --ini C:/Program Files (x86)/Steam/steamapps/common/Morrowind/Morrowind.ini --cfg C:\Users\user\Documents\My Games\OpenMW/openmw.cfg

when it comes like this, i just re install everything.

and sometimes it just go fine (which i don't understand why) and game starts, but the text looks like this:

and I'm sure this is not Korean.

I'd guess what's happening there is it's trying to display the bytes of the Korean characters as if they were regular ASCII so either something's going wrong with code pages or MyGUI's Unicode support sucks.
