Some Japanese style fonts for you
« on: August 14, 2011, 04:25:18 pm »
I don't know how to make tables out of these fonts, so I'll just post them here instead of submitting them to the site's font section.

Most of these fonts were ripped by me, and most of them have a Japanese-style to them, which come in handy when people want a nice looking font to replace those stylish Japanese characters.
Some of them are missing key characters, mostly because I couldn't find the letter with a title viewer, but they should help out if you really need them.


Ninja Masters






Knights of Valor




Samurai Shodown 3






Wario Land 2




Hamelin




Wrecking Crew 98

I like the Ninja Masters font, but one thing I recall about your font rips is that they aren't in the correct size for me to be to directly import them into a game. A chinese style font is also something I'm looking for.

Yeah the Ninja Master's font is what inspired me to post them all here, I like it very much.

As for the other fonts I've sent you, how come they are not in the right size? The ones I've found online and the ones I've ripped myself always come straight from the game and I don't resize them or anything.

The problem with Chinese style fonts is that they are usually huge. I'm sure you can find several Chinese style fonts on non-gaming font sites. I've seen quite a few.

My bad, size was never an issue. When I converted Ninja Masters to bmp and tried importing it into a tile editor, the font itself doesn't fit it in a neat 8x8 pixel tile and needs to be adjusted. Personally I think Ninja Masters is really cool and should be adjusted/edited then added to the font archive.

I don't know much about that, but since it's a Neogeo game I assume the font wouldn't fit on a NES game. But the second font set is exactly the same size as the font used in NES games.

Unbeknownst to me, Tile Molester lets you shift graphics pixel by pixel until it's all good. So if anyone wants to use the font without playing around with it, here she is.
