[00:08:24] <Colourless> all my musings about fonts the other day were almost pointless. i remembered that the exult menu will only come up if a game is 'successfully' installed and as such I can just grab the game data if i want to display a gump
[00:09:20] <Colourless> it is in general 'too' hard to automatically generate a font with height of only 8 pixels unless the font has been hinted to that size and the font is rendered using a renderer that can use the hints.
[00:10:46] <Colourless> i wrote a font shape generator that uses the windows gdi font apis because the freetype one is not as good, and its really hit and miss finding even remotely useful font.
[00:11:31] <Colourless> if i wanted to distribute my own font, converting something like the linux console bitmap fonts would be a better source than a TTF

[17:15:17] <Marzo> Huh. It seems that the joke in the news page might turn out to be true after all: http://videogames.yahoo.com/events/plugged-in/surprise-duke-nukem-forever-uncanceled-playable-at-pax/1409763
[17:20:14] <Dominus> http://exult.sourceforge.net/forum/read.php?f=1&i=338836&t=338836 :)
[17:20:34] <Dominus> I believe it when I see it...
[17:20:59] <Dominus> There must now be a lot of people who wanted to play this game when they were kids and now themselves have kids :)
[17:22:09] <Marzo> Follow the link -- you will see that a lot of people already played the latest development version
[17:41:02] <Dominus> I'm not saying I don't believe this, I'm actually more concerned about them actually releasing it :)
[17:41:56] <Dominus> and I *think* they will release it but actually believing that Duke Nukem Forever really truly exists, I will when I see it in stores :)
