The font is just awesome but I haven't found actual use for it yet..

...but I just got an idea: If we delete the Dungeon font (UA uses it for briefings etc.) from the system and rename this font to "Dungeon" then UA should use it! So you will see all game texts in the Resistance writing system. :D


edit: Working! At least to a certain extent... :D I changed the font name and replaced the original Dungeon with it but it doesn't properly fit to the screen. Either the font is too big (is this possible?) or UA wants a TrueType font or something.

Screenshot, situation analyzer was entered to get some text to the screen.

This is an amazing work on a language part!
Unfortunately I don't have an enough time to look around about this thread. Hope I should come back soon to search more. It looks very interesting.

That could be done but first the mission briefing texts would have to be completely rewritten (if you really want to use the scheme I came up with and still be logical). The system I worked on is almost completely phonetic and not a meant to be a gloss of English.

(But that would be quite a bit of work. We could just do it your way.) :P

And, thanks CharlotteLabyrinth.

I found there are some reference about the font type and size in LANGUAGE.dll file.

Check the 15th line in String Table 1(At last) and 16th line in String Table 2(At first).
Maybe lowering these numbers would directly affect the in-game text display. It seems worth to try out. :?:

Resistance Writing System 3

Post by Edward Fox » Thu Aug 30, 2012 2:04 pm

A while back most of the images I uploaded for the Resistance writing system were deleted. As soon as I am settled I will upload them again in this topic.

(I will also try to be more coherent.)

Resistance Writing System 4

Post by Edward Fox » Thu Jul 18, 2013 2:42 pm

I while ago I made a font of the writing system used by the Resistance. It was a bitmap font and now that I have found some decent free software I plan to make a far more sophisticated set (something life TrueType). I promise to almost certainly have it completed no latter than the end of 2014, probably sooner.

I remember that post. Having a true type font would be very nice because any program would be able to use it and you would be able to type normally from your keyboard

I also have thought of creating a custom font but never took the time to find the software to do it

Let us know how it turns out!

Thanks. It should turn out excellently once it is finally complete.

I finally found a program which was both free (freeware just keeps getting more diverse and of higher quality) and of a decent level of sophistication (I can learn quite a bit but making fonts properly is actually a rather complex process).
