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.
Another variant on Derpberd, this time with the alphabets condensed to a 3x5 grid while maintaining the constant height. This is made to allow a great density of text in a small space while still being readable and somewhat stylish. Useful for webcomic authors, pixel artists, etc.This is a clone of Derpberd
