Ye olde fonte (free 6x8 mono font)
« on: September 07, 2014, 02:48:11 pm »
This is just a font I put together for an Ultima-inspired idea I had. I'm no longer working on that project, so I figured I may as well put the font out there in case anyone could make use of it. Feel free to use it in any of your projects, modify it, etc.

I've attached a few example screens illustrating the font in effect.

Those look really great! Good job on them :)

It's just sprites/pixel art. It's not actually a font per se.

They could be used as custom fonts in Axe. Else I guess someone could convert them to ZStart fonts (although that might be hard since there's virtually no documentation on how to do so, from what I checked in the ZStart readme last time >.<)

They're a bit too big (1px height too much) but still doable.

DJ zStart has a built-in font editor. You could put it in by hand with that, then save the var it creates.

Or, you could hex-edit an existing font. It's not compressed.
