Re: Making a modern HeroQuest font

Hi Guys.

Is this still an active project?

I've got a small problem with the font and I'm curious if anyone else is having it.

I decided to go through and replace my art symbols with characters from this font. It's long overdue, but finally getting around to it. The only symbols I probably need are the Skull, White Shield and Black Shield.

The Skull and White Shield are fine. However, the Black Shield is not round. It has a strange little outcropping on the top right side. I'm thinking it's probably where a contour point is misplaced.

It's not a huge deal but it's obvious enough at larger scales that it's offputting.

I'm curious if anyone else is seeing this. I'm using font version 1.00 (1.1, the file still shows 1.0 though) and I just redownloaded form your signature link, it's still present.

Hi clmckay.

Sorry about the misshappen black shield icon; I hadn't noticed it at the time. Fortunately, that vector was not hard to fix. Try downloading v1.2 of the font now (also in signature) and see if that's any better.

Just a quick comment noting that the 1.2 version of the font still shows a version number of 1.16.

Yes, the program I use to compile the font is a little finicky as to when it actually updates the version number. You can tell it's the most up-to-date version, however, because the "Last Modified" date is more recent than anything else.

Lol....pull up Character map on a windows PC. You can look at all the other extra icons. Not sure how to do it on a mac.

No good if my numeric keypad is a layer via a function on my normal keypad. I use a wireless keyboard with touch pad like a laptop for this PC.
