Descent 3 fonts

Post by Insectoid » Sun Apr 24, 2011 8:59 pm

First time poster, long time Descenter.

Has anyone ever converted the D3 fonts into a usable format like TTF? I'm well aware of (and have) the D2 font set, and was curious if there was something similar for the D3 fonts. (I'd make the fonts myself, but none of the programs I have recognize the format the .FNT files are in, not even the ancient Windows Font Editor.)

Unfortunately, both the places I would normally look (descent-3.com, and of course planetdescent.com) are gone, and a long search on Google and this forum turned up nothing. Maybe someone here knows another place I can look?
For those curious: my avatar is an artistic rendering of a spaceship I drew for a primitive (by today's or even Descent's standards) multiplayer online game called XPilot. (More about both on my website.)

Bzzz.

He said D3, Red. Those are D1/D2. ;)

Insectoid, to the best of my knowledge, that has never been released. The D3 font is slightly exaggerated Tahoma font and more likely totally custom. (obviously)

If Kevin ever pokes his head in again, that might be a good question to ask him.
You might want to inquire at one of the other Descent sites.

I know what he said. The German site says it D3 fonts.

No probs. ;)

I should have checked the files, but I was too lazy at the time. :lol:
