I know this may find little interest, since it’s very specific to the st terminal and Beyond Zork, but if anyone does use st, and wants to play Beyond Zork, I created an st patch to draw font 3 in the terminal, for use with curses frotz. Yes, there are other interpreters available, like WinFrotz, etc, etc, but there you go
I can’t post links as a new member, but if you go to github, my username is buchankn, and you should be able to find my_st project.
I actually made this font by hand, putting the coordinates for each line/rectangle in the source code, compiling, and testing to see how it looked. A little painstaking, but not too bad once I did a few of the boxes/runes, since the proportions are generally similar for each letter.
I did visually look at the infocom 8x8 font, and the FreeFont for reference while I was making the font, so I’m not sure if that makes my font fall under GPL or not?
Edit: I did a little more research, and it doesn’t look like my font has to fall under GPL. I still can’t include links here to what I found, but as long as I don’t physically copy/modify a font file, I’m ok.
