[Graphics] Thin VWF Friendly Font
« on: October 09, 2021, 05:20:19 pm »
For Surging Aura, I'm currently using the Phantasy Star 4 font:



This has worked well for the dialogue and fits the game, but there are a few menus and such where a thinner font is needed to accommodate the translation. I would like a thinner version of the PS4 font or one that is in the same style. Ideally, the average pixel width of the font should be no more than 4 pixels, but 5 is probably okay. The above font has a max height of 10 pixels. The thinner font should not exceed this to avoid any weird issues when displayed on the same screen as the larger font above.

NOTE: This request is only for the alphanumeric characters and punctuation.

I hope it will be of some use.
Your conditions were quite restrictive, including the need to be based on the original Phantasy Star 4 English font. Most characters are 5 pixels wide (not including the 1 pixel letter spacing)

This doesn't get me exactly what I need, but I can make this work.

I'll use this for the main dialogue text:



And then I should be able to use a much thinner font like this one for the menus where I need it:



That should get the best of both worlds.

Thanks!
