I just installed Font Xplorer. Oh man, I'm going to be playing with it all night. ^^

Shaphina, in your font image, what's the Aside Lettering font labeled "Felt"? I really like the look of it, but the Felt we were given is different.

I uploaded my new font list, take a look at the first post!

@Russesa: It is Felt, just all caps.

Lots of free fonts out there, just make sure to read the licenses carefully. Some are free for non commercial use only and if used commercially (such as we are doing with DMG), have to have a license fee paid. Just a heads up.

Shaphina, after some searching I finally figured out the discrepancy with my fonts. The font provided by DMG is in a folder called Felt Tip Roman, but the font actually in my folder is Felt. Very strange. Did anyone else get the wrong font from the ftp? :?

Well that would explain it. Could it have been changed by DMG? Odd thing that is.

Well, if for some reason you don't have Felt Tip Roman yet and it isn't in the ftp folder for you I can always send it to you. Though you probably downloaded from somewhere already I'm thinking.

I was able to find the base version via mad Google-fu. Did DMG also provide bold/italic versions? If so, I could use them. If not, there's always ways to fake it. Oh, Photoshop. :mrgreen:

No, just the regular.

I wish there are more bold/italic options for the fonts. I would love if the bold choice wasn't actually bold-italic. (having both would be even better.) Action man has so many choices, wish the other fonts were like that.

Its times like this I wish I could create fonts for GIMP. No luck yet though...
