    A temporary workaround can be done by using texmod and changing the fonts by hand.

    It works for me, but it´s not very comfortable...

    The problem with the 6 and 9's is that the spine of the numbers is curved in, so when we're in the middle of the action, we see the curve, and assume its an eight.

    A traditional digital font would look better and be far more functional.

    I agree it's a bad font. I've brought this issue up in beta, too, as did some others.

    It's so good at confusing you it messes up your spelling.

    The point still stands though. It's a horrible font. They should have kept the same font as UT2004. At least the chat text could have been the same.

    They should have went with a digital font if they wanted something similar. I would rather have something simple and easily identifiable.

    Yeah it's a poor design choice. You're mind misreads it.

    You sense incorrectly (Uber bump btw :P) I have lost count of the times I have misread my HP because of the HUD, that said, I often ignore it now anyway, unless if i'm really low on HP

    I sense a little sarcasm but I am sticking to my guns.
    6 is to similar to 8 on the all important team score HUD element.

    So it is, maybe the font needs a bit of a rejig, or the ability to change it anyway for people who are easily confused :P

    It's not just me then, when I am on 6x HP, I always think I'm on 8x until I look really hard, it's just enough one of those small but highly annoying things plaguing UT3 at the moment.
