I was going through some old files and came across something I developed for the KDiZD dev team to use. It's a typeface we used to print text on textures and other things. Nightmare was continually copy/pasting characters (he?) created based on Doom's computer screens. I developed this typeface based on the characters he was working with.

Character set contains: [A-z], [a-z], [0-9], basic punctuation.
It is optimized to be used at a single size only, as it is a 'pixel font.'

This typeface is licensed freeware, so you can do whatever you'd like with it. Crediting is nice but not necessary.

Enjoy!

Neat. I wonder how this'd work if I were to turn it into a confont? It just happens to fit quite nicely with another of my mods...

I'd be happy if someone could create a real font out of that :)

Um, it's a truetype font now... so unless you're talking about smoothing out the corners so it can be enlarged without looking pixellated, I don't know what you mean.

What's wrong with it?

As I've said, it only works at one size... I think that's 10px.

If you continue to have issues, maybe you can contact these guys: http://www.pentacom.jp/soft/ex/font/edit.html

That's the tool I used to build it, if I recall correctly.
