July Font Retirements

Probably a little bit of a depressing way to end the month, but something that’s probably bit overdue. To cut back what all I’m needing to support and keep myself from going totally crazy with all these fonts, I’ve decided it’s time to retire a small block of them. These fonts will now be permanently freeware, but no longer supported. “Resavy”, “Fourth-Edition Dings”, “Furmanite”, “Medabots” and “Morse Tech” have been added to this category.

Note, these are freeware now, but not public domain.

Font Updates

Today’s update is a few overdue font updates, fixing kerning, font layout issues, and minor fixes. Also started a ‘retirement page’ for fonts that I’ll no longer be supporting, but will keep available here for download. For now, the ‘Niteclub’ font has been thrown in there.

album_videopacVideopac is updated with better spacing details and a new kerning table. Should look much better in print than before.
album_pacmaniaPacmania also gets the re-kerning and spacing treament, vastly improving the overall look of the font.

Cyrodiil Update

is a based on the main text used within Bethesda Softwork’s later Elder Scrolls games and has a strong, later-medieval / Gaelic look, perfect for fantasy-gaming text. Includes full alphabet, extended punctuation, euro. Includes regular bold, italic, and bold-italic faces.
