New characters for Heretic and Hexen

Post by Ichor »

Heretic and Hexen have been around for years, decades even, but in all that time, there was one thing that has been sorely lacking.

CAPITAL LETTERS!

Yes, at long last, there can now be capital letters in the games. I have added them to both small and large fonts, and with the proper letter case usage, it looks very nice. All menus and messages should have the proper capitals (instead of just being all caps), and it should work with just about any mod out there.

Holy shit, nice! I'm in love with those uppercase bigfont glyphs.

A green version to use with Heretic would be fab is all. :3

EDIT: "I" and "J" in the smallfont look a tiny bit weird, I don't know if any other characters in the font do these little 1px serifs...

I must have missed the green ones. I'll add those in a little bit.

As for the I and J, I might make some slight adjustments. The I needs it more though.

Ok, I added green text for Heretic. However, because the font names are the same in Heretic and Hexen, I had to divide it into two files, one to be used for each game.

Also, I made a slight improvement to the white and yellow I. I didn't do anything with the J since I think that one looks good enough.

Improved some of the big font letters and resized most of them down by 1 pixel for consistency. The letters that needed the most help were A, F, and Y, though a lot of them needed to be thickened some.

Ok, the G looks a lot better now, and I touched up a few more letters, and the R doesn't stick out nearly as far. I think everything looks good now.
