While I didn't know that typefaces are not subject to copyright in the US - how interesting! - this is more about showing respect and gratitude to Gemini for creating and publicly posting a font good enough to use for a major project. Having these kinds of resources available makes translating easier.
What I am mainly here to ask though is does this mean you have a nice tool for this Pokeytax or are you just spending an evening with a tile editor/crystaltile2?
Yeah, I just sketched it into a .BMP that I exported/reimported using Crystal Tile 2. (Thanks for that, by the way! You are in the credits for this patch too.) A tool is an interesting idea, but with font encoding varying across games so much, it sounds like a lot of work. Plus you'll generally have to make amendments by hand anyway.
Of course I do have a simple font plotter in Excel VBA for adding font to graphics, but, that's hardly the same thing.
