I've searched the net, but nowhere found chess piece sets for Fritz software. I know that there are different chess piece sets for the Fritz software, but I don't know from where can I buy. Maybe at ChessBase? Please provide a direct link (because I can't find one).
Please help.
Thanks.

I NEVER saw any Chessbase ''announcement'' related to selling different chess pieces sets for the Fritz GUI software.

Since long time ago, I was collecting different chess pieces for the Fritz GUI (created by different users) although NOT all of them fit correctly in the Fritz GUI.

Check the picture below:

Is this what you really want?

How were you able to make those extra fonts recognizable to the Fritz GUI? I've installed a bunch of chess piece fonts, and ArenaGUI sees them, but Fritz does not.

Thanks!

You need to copy all those extra fonts in the ''fonts folder'' through the ''Control Panel''.

Yeah, thanks, that's what i did, but they don't show up as available choices in Fritz, but only in Arena. :sad:

Apparently, I'm not the only one, as Zsolt has the same problem.

Thanks Gaмßito, I want something like that, yes! Please tell me how to do it, what kind of fonts need to be copied and where exactly, and where can be found those fonts.
Thanks again!

P.S.
I found some chess piece fonts and installed/copied into the fonts directory, but nothing appears in Fritz chess pieces drop-down list :(

Here is the link: https://www.chessvariants.com/d.font/fonts.html

I didn't test the fonts in the newest Fritz GUIs (only in Fritz 12 and older GUIs), but I guess they must work in all of them.

Here is the zip file with the fonts: http://www.mediafire.com/file/u2ra32ltxy2834v/Fritz_Fonts.zip/file

Unzip the file and follow the steps I said. Remember: you need to copy all those fonts in the ''fonts folder'' through the Control Panel.

Also please report if they worked!

Regards,
Gaмßito.

Lots of thanks, Gaмßito!! I don't know why, but all the extra fonts are visible and working now. :grin:
Never thought that would be possible, after doing something very similar a while back.
The fonts now appear in old Fritz 10, new Fritz 16 and CB15!

:smile:

I'm glad it worked for both of you!

Maybe I'll try to create some interesting design. I always had in mind and liked one of the designs Deep Blue Team used in the 90's era.
The only problem is that we don't have too much information about those designs more than a couple of ''old'' pictures.

Anyway, we'll see what happen.

Best Regards,
Gaмßito.
