Recently, while in Spielberg, I happen by an odd little shop...

It is from QfG1VGA. Zara's magic shop with Al's face pasted over and a little cut and paste for the dialog box.

So you cut and paste the letters to spell her name?

Ah. I thought you found the font used in the game and did it in a photo editing program using the font.

Because I've been trying to find a way to yank that font out of the Sierra games and sue it all the time.

You'd have though! I found a site that had it in SCI format, for actual use in the game studio program. But nothing in truetype and I havent seen a SCI to TTF converter either (unlikely anyway)

I might just have to figure out how to create a TTF ... :)

http://fontstruct.fontshop.com/fontstru ... gloryquest

its a pixel-to-pixel replication. which i think is going to make it too small at normal sizes like 10 or 12pt to use in normal applications.

i'll have to probably figure out how to make them 16x16 or 32x32 size in order to make them usable for email or stuff.

but for first attempt, let me know what you think.

Oh that's a little bit lame. try here:

http://www.filedropper.com/gloryquest

edit: got rid of the second one. the larger pixel size make it no bigger and just ruined the spacing of the characters. maybe there's a utility that can 'upsize' the letters ?? But this is a decent start maybe???

edit 2: changed URL to something not on my home server. also created new post with this and the two others I made (KQ4 and PQ3s fonts)
