w00t! Triple-post, FTW!

Well, here's my nearly-final, public-beta, all-warranties-disclaimed, good-enough-for-government-work version of the VB logo font.

Eat instruction manual before using.

Well, no-one seems to be interested in this anymore, but here is a practically complete version of the font. I'll fix reported bugs if possible, and if there are any type designers/experts out there, I'll definitely listen to any tips/tricks/hints/commentary/suggestions.

I technically own the copyright, but I really don't care what's done with it (although an anti-VB hate site would be in seriously poor taste ). ...a small gratuity would be a nice gesture, if you can spare it.

Wow! I hadn't realized that I had started an entire discussion! When I first posted I thought I subscribed to it via email, so I just waited for the email reply. I never got one, so I ended up using a similar font, Agency FB for the title.

The newsletter I was doing was for NintendoAGE.com. We have a monthly eZine we put out about things NES and related. I'm sorry it took me two months to come back to this topic, but thanks very much for making that font! I downloaded it and I will use it in the future. If you want a link to the eZine with the Virtual Boy article in it, click here. (You'll have to register to view it.)

Once again, thanks for your support!

I'm glad you like it. Since it still needs some work, I may update it (and this thread) in the future, so be sure to check back before you use it.

I'd like to see how you do use it, if ever, so don't be a stranger

In fact, let us know about anything else VB-related you do, whether my font's involved or not

I'm too lazy busy to check out your article (I still might...) but I took a look at the font you substituted and it's not a bad match.

Site titles are now working with your font, RunnerPack, using the @font-face CSS property. Looks pretty good! :)

It's nice that it has smoother edges than the old site titles, but doesn't it look a little too bold?

You're right! I thought it was set to normal font-weight and it was the font itself that was bold, but it just inherited the bold from another CSS class. Better now. :)

Excellent job, KR155E! I must say, they do look good, but the bitmap ones weren't bad. Sure, they took more bandwidth, and they were probably less compatible browser-wise, and they probably hurt the accessibility of the site, but other than that...

I attached an SVG version of the font below. They're only supported by Opera and Safari right now, but the others should catch up eventually It's also the only Web Font format supported by Mobile Safari, the browser on the iPod/Phone/Pad, but who uses those? I've seen a tutorial on how to use CSS to get each browser to use the format they like, but I didn't save the link and I can't find it now But, since you've got mad DOM skills (which, quite literally, "pay the bills") I'm sure you'll figure it out

I assume they would work in Chrome, too. That browser is the furthest ahead with web standards as far as I know, and runs on the same renderer as Safari anyway (WebKit).

So does that mean you're basically releasing this under Creative Commons? Free use, with accreditation?
