Implemented the third VWF in a row:

This one was using 16x16 4bpp blocks. I'm really starting to hate this game's code with a passion.

Looks good, as usual! It's for PlayStation, right? But why did they used a 4BPP format for a shaded font? Is it really necessary?

The 4 bit rendering code doesn't use any shades, it's just 2 colors: transparent and white. The 8 bit one, instead, uses a wide array of colors and can combine them with a colored shadow. Why they made it work like that is a mystery to me, but I'm guessing it's part of the issues they were having during the port from Saturn (which uses tiled BGs with different color configurations).

As for the save screen:


Now I can say it: this 4bit VWF madness is finally over.

Anyone feel like doing graphic designs? Got a boatload of graphics/sprites that need to be hacked and that'll probably take the longest to do.

I can do that sphere for you pennywise. However, the most difficult thing for me is finding a suitable font. If you find a font you like, I'll do it.

So did you have any constructive criticism tucked somewhere in that?

Perhaps if there were some context to the font it would make more sense. It looks out of character for the game as I know it is all.

I agree with the context bit. I think it looks neat, but I reserve my full opinion until you show actual in-game shots of it in work.

The design looks pretty neat at first blush. However, while the individual letters look OK, when taken as a whole they don't seem to be designed consistently. Compare the B and D, which tilt clockwise, with the I and J, which tilt anticlockwise. There are some letters which don't appear tilted, like C and N. I think it'd be an improvement if this slight tilt was made somehow consistent.

Also, I'd try and punch some holes in the interior shadows of that B if possible.

Yeah, those are definitely good points. That was just my stopping point for the other night. I've since redone the upper case 'I' and 'J', and an IRC friend did a mockup based on this in a similar style, so I might steal and possibly modify his 'M' and 'N'. I didn't really like their current design much at all.  The 'C' and 'G' probably wouldn't be too hard to add some tilt to, either. As for holes in the 'B' and 'A', I think I've found a way to do that that is pleasing enough to the eye. I haven't decided yet whether the font letters themselves will be 2 or 3 color, but if I want to do any sort of gradient backdrop stuff while other parts of the game are running (translucent rain, mist in the forest, I'm probably going to have to reserve that third color. (The 0th color being transparent).

Edit: Latest version (ignore the 'H'):
