getting sound fonts on windows can be so hard to make work.

but maybe with gervill project you can do this easily:
https://gervill.dev.java.net/

But i need to know, what release of tuxguitar do you have installed to help you installing it.
i mean, tuxguitar 1.0 have a "Jet" release, "GCJ" release and a classic java release. what is yours ?

If you use a normal java
you can download and extract gervill.

and copy the file called "gervill.jar" to the java extension folder:
Go to where is java installed ( Ussually Program Files/Java/[version] )
and if you have a "JRE" (Java Runtime Edition) add gervill.jar in:
lib/ext folder.

if you have "JDK" (Java Development Kit) add it on:
jre/lib/ext folder.

Then when you restart tuxguitar, you should be able to select "Gervill" on Tools -> Settings : Sound -> MIDI Port.

if it's there, so you successfully installed it.
Now, to load the soundfont, you can go to "Tools -> Plugins"
and on "Java Sound Api plugin" click in "Configure" button.
then check "Use custom soundbank" and select any .sf2 file.

Gervill needs a nice PC to run fine. but you can test yourself

No! No! I have 1.0, but I was asking, what if we have precompiled versions of Tuxguitar, and not the one that requires Java.

Just because I was curious, I used the .sf2 that comes with mario paint composer. Everything sounds so cute with mario's head marimba as every single instrument. Didn't expect that, but it's amazingly cool. Thanks!
