Is it ok to mod the Fonts and make FH2 look nicer on big resolution or is it cheating ?

Try it out. [english] version
make a backup of fonts_client.zip in EA GAMES\Battlefield 2\mods\fh2 folder

Sorry I have not tried it that much. I am no expert. I just followed the guide :-)
Does replace fonts_client.zip in mods/bf2 folder make any difference ? (replaced in both folders)

That is quite easy. Somewhere (maybe in the objects or client zip files) there was a text file you can simply edit. I did this some years back in BF2 a lot. You can even change colors and font sizes, although you have to google the code lines for it.

I am pretty sure, there are guides out there (look for bf2 ofcourse). But with some very, very basic knowledge of how such things work, you may also will figure it out for yourself.

using small fonts makes text ingame look much tighter and clean when reading stats, menus, flag names, text on loading screen etc. Vs The original blurred font sizes :-)

Could be awesome if possible to see all 100 players on screen when pressing tab in game

Could you name the specific file, please? I was going through the files, but I couldn't find it. Thanks

Thanks. Any idea where to find the "killmessage" settings for vehicles?

Did you try replacing fonts_client.zip in both mods/fh2 and mods/bf2 folder ?
