This is a another recreation of an LCD design concept by Posy
This time it's the 3x5 Matrix Display, with all glyphs of Basic Latin supported
Also available without rounded cornersThis is a clone of LCD 3x5 Matrix
NOTE: Click 'TrueType Font' when downloading!
based on the logo of fancade: https://www.fancade.com
as well as the "insert disk" text on the main screen and martin magni's "hello world" game
work in progressThis is a clone of Fancade Logo Font
Based on a pixel pixel font I made a while back, trying to stick to the limitation of a fictional text rendering system* TL;DR 3x5 letter bodies with limited space for diacritics. Font is crisp at sizes multiple of 4.5**, really it's just a latin font but there's some experimental cyrillic, greek, and katakana which is kinda messy.
*Text would be rendered on a grid made up of alternating blank/diacritic lines (made of 3x2 boxes) and letter body lines (3x5 boxes). Each box is separated by 1 pixel in which glyphs cannot be drawn on. Diacritic boxes can be used to display a diacritic on either the letter above or below them; a limitation of this system is that this sharing of diacritic spaces could cause ambiguities.
**Weird number but that's how i got the line spacing I wanted. In the fictional system mentioned above, a technical limitation would be that the same slots are shared for diacritics above and below, causing them to overlap if a letter with a lower diacritic was on top of a letter with an upper diacritic.
PC Font recreations: "Terminal" (Style 3, coding is OEM/DOS)
This font only appears in Notepad, MS Paint and nowhere else, so replicating it might be a good idea.
The most amazing thing about this font is that it changes its style depending on the chosen font size. More styles and "More Latin" coming soon.
because negative space is all the rage these days
i put like 0 effort into this so there might still be some font left over, lemme know if you find it
btw how many times has this been done before? i'm genuinely curious
recommended use: don't
alternate name: the emperor's new font
Continuing on the theme of overzealously antialiased pixel fonts, here's a 3x5 no-wasted-matrix design. The shading enabled me to make many glyphs which normally need to be truncated or compressed (MWaemswz@«©»®, etc). Looks best at 2x Pixel size!
This gives me an "old newspaper" feeling and seems like the kind of font that would be used for the text of such newspapers in old adventure games.
Unfortunately, I could not get the shading effect to work in any graphics software except by turning antialiasing on, and this ruins the look. So if you want to render text in this font, I recommend going to View -> User Input, typing your text here on this page, and then screen capturing it...
A monospaced 3x5 font used in Vidora15 and later programmable electronic displays made by AMFA Cybernetics (formerly "ATMA Robotronics").
This font is made with AMFA encoding in mind. As such, the character set is very limited and there are no glyphs which require NKRO>1 or buckybits (Alt, Ctrl, Fn, Shift, Strg, option keys, etc). The glyphs normally present at these codepoints have been reverted so that any text displayed in this font is also effectively displayed in AMFA encoding. The encoding has 48 possible glyphs (including one which doubles as both "null" and "new line") so there are 96 glyphs in this font overall.
Hope this saves you some work, Feng! :^)
Since this exact font and encoding scheme were used in other devices and software, some of which were (or had) games, I'm also tagging this with Game Recreations.
Original size: 4pt (use multiples of this size for pixel perfection)
MIV: h6.24 @ 1x / m8.35 @ 1x
How much detail can you get by expanding 3x4 to 3x5? Not a whole lot, as it turns out. Still, this is nice and readable.
