HeXen FONT!!!!

Postby ShadesMaster » Tue Feb 03, 2009 12:26 pm

Hey guys, is there anywhere online I can download a HeXen-style font for use in photoshop or Microsoft Word? I want to make an HTML document in the same style as the HeXen instructions for my Necrosis.wad - it will reveal some - and I mean only SOME - of the new monsters and weapons to be found in the add-on. That, as well as 'new' gameplay features like crouching (which WILL be required to progress through some levels to finish the mod)....

that would mean that everyone has to download the font in question to view it "properly" if you want to use it on your website.

Not if it's part of an image via photoshop. Though I think a Hexen ttf font would fit nicely next to the Doom ttf font I have...

Unless you want the font to be viewed right, in which case an image (or a PDF) wins. ;)

Unfortunately, this kind of thing actually justifies the existence of that blasphemous PDF format*. ;P

/me wonders if he should bring up his whole "curse Adobe!" debate again. ;P

Eh, there's loads of free PDF readers out there that are better, anyway. So no biggie, thankfully.

Which, coincidentally, I conveniently have not updated since a certain unnamed company acquired it. Purposely, of course. :o

Well, not exactly. There is the Postscript format after all. (Then there is also dvi, but only Linux nerds have heard of it.)

Also, "PDF format" is, like "PIN number", a victim of the RAS syndrome.

IMO what viewer you use for PDF files is pretty trivial, the point is its a great format for documents where the author doesn't have to worry about what fonts and whatever are installed on the viewers machine. If I'm looking for a document, I usually first look for a PDF file, because I know it's the most likely to work. Some of the lecturers at my university still upload their notes and stuff in .doc (or even worse .docx) or .ppt, it's situations like these that the PDF format becomes truly appreciated.

Other than possibly slowing down the "internet experience" a bit, I honestly don't see what's so bad about flash anymore.
(Assuming of course, it's used correctly which could be said about many things used to build websites).

Flash has been abused by so many webmasters that any addons which block it rightfully do so. Flash is used to load popups, annoy the living fuck out of a visitor, and even in some cases hijack the browser or system. (The latter has been fixed, but it's happened before)

If a site that I visit has Flash, I generally assume that in most cases, I'm missing nothing by unblocking it.
