LBA font

I made a font out of the letters of LBA.
If you find anything wrong about it please tell me.
It should work fine.
Just put in in the windows/fonts directory.

edit: Fluck the old symbol version.
Here's the new -better- Unicode version.

Here's an unicode version of the font.
This one should work for you (it worked for wacko).
I'll see whats the problem and try to upload a fixed version soon.

edit: this one owns the old one.
See top post and download the new one if you have the old.

Doesn't works for me too. Only the very first one you gave me at IRC worked properly, only as a symbol font.

I take it you didn't already know that the text used for the dialogs in LBA is 'Serifa BT' in bold.

At least that's the font I used to replicate the text for my LBA game speech dialogs. I overlayed it on a screenshot of the original and it was a perfect match.

Not everybody has that font (at least I don't ).
And I think making one originally from the game is better.
Does this one work?

Well, no point in recreating it from the limited size in the game if it's available already. Well done on doing it though anyway.

Your font in the first post worked fine for me in WinME, but very pixelated at large sizes which is why im attaching SerifaBBT

You're right, they look quite similar.
Some small differences though but not much.
LOL, I spend the whole day making a font which already was made (more or less) .
Oh, well.
I'll keep looking for the problem though (for the real fans out there ).

I did a Google search for Serifa BT, it seems it costs around $44.95 I'm not sure if it's legal to put it on the web for download. Usually fonts like this are included in programs like Office so you get it for "free".

oh dear Wacko, I can see a job already lined up for you at ELSPA

I don't think distribution of fonts is considered an illegal practice, you should be able to find most fonts on font libraries online free, who the F would oay $45 for a font!

Besides I dunno where I got it from, so many suites install fonts to your system, but I suspect it was installed with Corel 8.

Companys normaly pay to use fonts with programes, I cant think of any single user buying them.
