Hello people,

I took the time to make a custom font that you can use to replace the default one. (if you so desire) It was designed at 32 point size with the idea that scaling down would be better than scaling up the default font. I'll post a sample pic in the next post..

Cheers!

Nice font David, any chance you could do another version with the letter A for lower case not like "a" and with a low flick tail to the bottom right if that makes sense

I am thinking of kids apps in mind and young ones like the other style of A for learning as it leads onto joined up righting.

Bit like this style:

That would be great if you could.

You should right your writing

Good work as usual

Your work would be highly appreciated by the European community (and others) if you could create an extended font for accented characters. AppGameKit is sadly lacking a high quality extended font. It would need to include ASCII values 192 to 255 in this table.

I don't need it, but a lot of people do!

..and as promised here is the sample pic..




Cheers!

P.S. BatVink I'll see about making an 'extended' font. The whole font will need to have it's size adjusted, to allow the accents and stuff to fit over the normal letters. Right now they are 32x32, but I crop the width to each letter in the subimages, these are NOT monospaced fonts. Or I might need to make the larger font a wee bit smaller to make it fit into a 512x512 bitmap. I'll see what I can do.

Cheers! v2.0
