You mean the symbols font that rains down?

I created the one that's built into MXM, which has a complete alpha-numeric set (yes, I actually created the TrueType font, using CorelDraw).

It's available internally, I just can't recall, at the moment, what the 'internal' filename is.

no im not talking about the code falling down, talking about a readable text, much like the code, but where you can read what is written.sSjYoShI found me 1 type that looks kinda the real thing, its named dotmatrx.

If you guys have other font, juste reply!

Thanks!

Well, that was the internal font I was referring to. It's got the falling symbols **AND** the alphanumeric "OCR" characters.

You can access the font by using a font name of "def_matrix" - no need to specify anything in the Resources. (Hmmm... I don't think I ever documented that)

Give it a whirl - it may not be complete, but it doesn't hurt to check it out.

I tried it out, and it works, but there's a few characters missing. So if BJ could post his coreldraw files (and ttf files), someone might wanna finish off the font.

Hey geniusalz, ive tried this and it didnt work, am i wrong somewhere?

QUOTE

- <Resource Type="Font" Name="Arial">
  <File>Fontsarial_10.xpr</File>
  </Resource>
- <Resource Type="Font" Name="Zero3">
  <File>FontsZero_Threes_15.xpr</File>


so it looks like this:

QUOTE

- <Resource Type="Font" Name="Matrix">
  <File>def_matrix.xpr</File>
  </Resource>
- <Resource Type="Font" Name="Matrix">
  <File>def_matrix.xpr</File>


in my mxm_skin.xml

but nothing has changed, its still the default font (which looks like arial or times new roman)

can you tell me what you have changed?

thanks a lot as always!

So no resources.
Just
<Text Source="CGTitle" Font="def_matrix">
...
</Text>

I'll see about doing that. I added quite a few characters, I guess I didn't get them all ohmy.gif
