    MK2 font redo!

    I am currently working on a new font based off the MK2 arcade font.

    The reason I am doing this is to help people who like the font but want to do stuff with it in a new hd type setting.

    Below are pics comparing the original vs my new set, I could sure use some help in how to make it a font or what program I need if there is one.

    The image below is a picture or "screenshot" of the vector letters I am working on, I can resize them to whatever size and not loose detail etc. I love doing vector artworks, it's the only way to go.

    With that being said, again any help is appreciated, I really want to o this and maybe the other fonts used in the game as well such as the intro font and MK1 one as well!

    Not bad at all! Are you programming your own game, or just looking to recreate some fonts yourself? Vector art rules.

    I am still going ahead with mine.. If anyone knows how to use font programs I will gladly share half the credit with them.

    Done some editing to a few characters. They are each their own individual vector file and are ready to be turned into a font.

    Just got to figure out how!

    I'm pretty sure there's information all over the internet on how to turn things into fonts.

    Have you done any research on that at all?

    Re: MK2 font redo!

    I finally found a YouTube video on how to do it using Illustrator which is the program I used to trace over the outline of the original font with and a program called font lab in which now I have to run down a serial for lol.

    Looking at Calactyte's font, it seemed he may have used the auto trace feature of Illustrator which does ok but I wanted to replicate what I think they were trying to do with the font instead of an exact reproduction.

    I think either choice would be a cool thing to have.

    Either way it will look great IMHO. I'm very interested to see the finished product, as I thoroughly enjoy Photoshopping all sorts of klassic MK scenery .
