This particular font was basically just an oversimplified version of Gryphon Serif. I called it "Tick" because it looked like a typewriter font to me, and typewriters make a ticking sound whenever you use them.
This is a pixel font that imitates Romanian archaic font used 1830 - 1860 which is a Latin alphabet meant to look like Cyrillic. There are many other variations but I tried to create the one that is most readable as pixel font. It also includes Romanian Cyrillic symbols used until 1860. I have also included other latin symbols that were in use for example sound ă was not standardized so you could write it as ĕ ĭ ŏ ŭ and it would mean the same thing or previous to 1860 Romanian latin used accents (accute, circumflex and grave) much like French language does today. All those extra latin symbols are included. I do not know Cyrillic so my experience with it is solely based on what I read about Romanian Cyrillic Alphabet on wikipedia and omniglot.
Is not known when people in Romanian territory adopted Cyrillic. Cyrillic alphabet was created by brothers Cyril and Methodious during the first bulgarian kingdom and is worth noting that first bulgarian kingdom included the Romanian territory. Also note that term Romania(n) was used after 1400-1500s so previous to that the people or language was called Vlach a term still used today for latin speaking eastern europeans outside Romania. The first attested writing of Romanian language written in Cyrillic alphabet is from 1500s but by this time Romanian Cyrillic was quite developed and likely had been in use for quite some time already. During 1830 Latin slowly started replacing Cyrillic probably influenced by French language and culture and by 1860 Romanian Cyrillic was completely replaced by Romanian Latin based on French.
This font is based on Sierra sci fonts . It has nice gothic bold 8 pixel high (7 px tall letters and 1px under for ygpqj hooks which dip under baseline). It only has latin uppercase and lowercase and nothing else.
An awkward name perhaps, for an odd little, simple version of an "LED Screen-slash-Scoreboard-Style Capitals Only" font... (I plan on adding the Extended ASCII, Soon™)
Years ago, I contacted the author of a similar-styled font, to ask specifically for Commercial Use of his font, that looked somewhat like this one (I have been using it "Officially" at my Blog since then).
Today, I found Fontstruct and thought "why don't I make my own version this font, not only for my own use, but for others to possibly use as well?".
And so, here is an 'LED Screen' or 'Dot Matrix' style font (also usable as a 'Pixel style' font) - with punctuation and a couple of 'accents' - but capitals only, as traditional LED Screens or Scoreboards ("Score Screens") would have used; made for you, on this wonderful, easy-to-use interface, Fontstruct.
I plan on making many more, including finishing those I started on my own in other font-creation applications!
I am 'Troy from The Game Tips And More Blog', by the way, heh

This is is the most accurate HD44780 font you can find on FontStruct, because it has pixel-perfect representations of all 190 original characters (not including 0x00-0x0F, which are impossible on FontStruct)
0x00-0x0F are mapped to 0x100-0x10F since I can't add characters before 0x20.
