DefleMask bold font mock image.
« on: February 15, 2016, 12:19:38 am »
I made a mock image showing DefleMask with a bold font. It's possible without actually adding a new font, just layering the font on top of itself shifted 1px right. Just like how this game does it.

Is a bold font option someone you'd like to see in DefleMask? If it is, please post in this thread showing your support.
To understand FM, I think of each OP as an OSC that can also be a LFO.

Making every font to have a double pass rendering is a waste of CPU/GPU resources. This should be done at font image level by using the DefleMask Font Converter available on older versions. It is attached.

Since the regular font is Verdana. I made the bold font Verdana too.

It's working nicely in the prerelease.

It looks fine, the only problem is that in some parts of the UI the extra width size is making some words to get off of the windows or collide with other words (check out the pattern matrix in Arcade, or the about screen)

Oh well, I see why I shouldn't add it to my "Focus" skin as an 'official' skin. For my own personal use though, I'll be absolutely fine with it.

You did it, you convinced me. I added bold support in the last pre-release update. I've fixed all size related issues with the bolded words. Please check if everything looks fine.
