And thanx to Blanka for the perfect match  :spaceace:  this has the little tail in the "a"

"Helvetica Neue Bold", thanx to chrischris for the font, and to myself for converting it from mac format to OTF wich works in windows  8)



It looks more bold, but look when i put it on top....



I think this is the one im going to use...

Heb m voor de mac, je kunt de helvetica herkennen aan de
binnenvorm van de a het is een soort druppel met puntje....

heerlijk, letters! kan er uren over praten

sorry dont feel like translating it. Its helvetica nue bold.

It's a deadly sin to convert TTF to OTF!!!!
TTF can be easily swapped between mac an windows, on some OS versions you need TTF converter.

OTF is the next gen format. Converting TTF to OTF is like putting a Suzuki Alto engine in a Ferrari. The Marktplaats buyer will hate you for not telling your adaptation!

If you give someone else your newly made OTF, he expects it to have all legislatures, all non-western characters, all letter-combination adaptive character spacing.... where it is just crap TTF in a new jacket.

Player + jump= cooper black slightly redrawn or badly silkscreened.
Instructions= handmade font (check the 2 "N" are different); 1,2,3 looks handdrawn to me too; so you have to vectorize it.
"Control" I don't have time to check atm, sorry.

I am already happy  :-*

It is indeed Cooper Black with a custom angle.

good enough for me though:




And "player" after manual vectorising the "1 & 2"
Not bad for an amateur if you ask me  8)

i think i just found the answer: Postscript Monotype. does that make any sense at all?
all i need is ... PONG - and a select few others: TOUCH ME, DRAGON'S LAIR, JOUST, ROBOTRON, MR DO, SAN FRANCISCO RUSH THE ROCK!!!

Hi Etienne, is the file you're trying to open a .psd file?
I think I can help but I need to check the file first. Is it on your FTP?
