tigf, i need your help.

im looking for the most low-res ttf font possible.
ive been using a handmade one that was mostly 4 pixels high by 3 wide.
but i need something like that in .TTF

and i cant find one.
i remember someone here thinking that i was using some particular font for fez's text, when i was infact just drawing all the latter by hand.

thanks alot.

You need a pixel font but as a vector TTF? Hmm.

I guess most of these windows fonts (small fonts, terminal etc) are .FON? I used Fony to create bitmap fonts from TTFs, but I guess it's non-trivial to go the other way...

I'm not sure if all his fonts are TTF or what but you could try Brian Kent's fonts.

Why do you need it in ttf?
I'm just curious. Is it for printed media?
If it's for your game a pixel fonts works so much better at that size, no?

There is a cool low rez font called rotorcap. Perhaps that will do?
