Update: Beta 2

 

+Added foreign characters.

+Added variant for Font 2 with Rage Italic.

+Removed hole in center of star icon. (Let me know which you like better.)

+Slightly resized (Montana) so that the letter "w" wasn't too wide.

 

Font 1: Text (Adidas), Menu (Pricedown - Custom Modified)

Font 2: Written (Montana, Rage Italic)

 

 

How to use the font:

Download the fonts.txd, and replace the one if your Vice City "models" folder. Make a backup beforehand.

 

Known issues:

Bottom of some text (written fonts) are cutoff, I will attempt to fix these before final release.

 

What I'm looking for:

I mostly need help testing the symbols and custom characters i.e. `;:!#$%&*();:|\[]?/-+ etc. especially those that aren't part of the text such as "TM" and the tiny "o" character. It's been a long time since I've played through VC, so I don't recall where certain symbols are used.

 

Update:

Test out these fonts and give feedback, let me know which font you used and if you noticed any problems. I especially need to know where some of the symbols are used, specifically the written fonts "+" and "-".

Looks great man. The only complaint I have is I wish that you used the original font for vehicle and location names. Other than that, i''m still going to use it for my VC.  :^:

I've made quite a bit of progress with this, but I've run into a few problems that involve the marginal width for a few of the letters.

 

Does anyone know if it's possible to access and modify the font margin programming of the game?

It could be possible, but not worth the time and effort. It's been some time since I've remade Vice City fonts myself, so I can't remember if I've encountered some issues with margins. Maybe with Rage Italic, but I'd have to double check the files, check the grid and contemplate everything :)

Either way, it's nothing path edit tool in Photoshop wouldn't fix, or even free transform on certain areas. Trust me, no one will notice a minor difference comparing to the source vector font. Especially if you take some liberties before, like with wanted level stars, looking noticeably different than the original ones.

 

One thing I'd like to criticize is this texture you've put on all letters. In my opinion it's too noticeable. You could decrease its transparency a little, so it doesn't distract the viewer instead of just adding some depth. Aside from that, all seems good.

You could use Yelmi's Font Editor, it recreates the fonts.dat

Also, if any of you have the game running in 4K, let me know how the fonts look. Thanks.
