The new text
« on: February 19, 2009, 11:17:00 AM »
I'm probably just overly picky, but I liked the older text better.  That blocky, early style computer font just seemed sleeker.  I also find the new text to be blurry looking.  It doesn't as polished as the older text.  That older text just had clean lines.

Just thinking out loud.

That's interesting! To me, the new font is much smoother and more readable, and I also feel that it fits the ambient theme more than the old font. One other advantage of the new font is that it is easier to support other languages. I hadn't thought about it but I guess it would be possible to offer other fonts for the game as an option, although it might screw up the UI a bit.

How do others feel about the new font?

Ehh, there's no need to make different font selections.  Plus, I can see how the language support is a big advantage.

Part of me likes the new font, because after all, it is a little cleaner and it matches the feel of the game better, but it is kind of blurry for me... I don't know...

You could try using the old font by renaming the file, but it will probably come out tiny and invisible in some cases.
