I've got my master character set pretty much finished now, but I'd like some advice. I've looked at dozens of 8x8 fonts used in NES, Famicom, GameBoy and GameBoy Color games for reference.

I'd like to add a subtitle for the game, as Puresabe has said that he isn't a sprite artist. I am, but just not a very skilled one.

Here's my initial work, based on Yuki Miyuki's Rockman 5 Air Sliding title.




What do you guys think?

I'm not 100% satisfied with the Y, and to a lesser degree the F and M.

With the M, you should probably think about giving the right side a top-right-to-bottom-left angle so it looks more consistent with the other letters.
And the Y probably needs a more consistent slope. Especially on the right side it just jumps a few pixels over. Can you widen it to give it a more gradual slope?

I see what you're saying, but I'm not that skilled at titles. Could you show me what you mean?

Version 0.02 has been released, but since it doesn't have the retranslation yet, I'd like to propose a new option in the configuration menu to replace the space saying "ENGLISH COMING SOON":
This setting would let the player play the game with his or her perferred character names. This should change any instance of the character's name appearing in some way (for example, if Rockman gets sucked up by Dust Man's Recycle Inhaler, he could be trapped in an M-Tank or an R-Tank, depending on if the player perfers the name Mega Man or not).
You forgot about the title logo. If you're pushing for "Rockman" to "Mega Man", the title logo should also do the same, right?

No. The title will be static, not something that is altered by the translation. It will always and forever be Rockman 4 Minus Infinity. Puresabe has been quite clear on this.

I think most people who know about the game are familiar with it as Rockman 4 Minus Infinity anyway. Suddenly changing it to Mega Man IV Minus Infinity wouldn't feel right.

Could someone help me with correcting the M to the style of the rest of the font? I've been fiddling this for the last hour, and no matter what I do I can't get the M to look any better than my initial effort.

Comically late reply, I know, but you should try this on for size.
