[PR3] Should we get a new font?
#1
In case you don't know, the font for PR3 is called Action Man, which makes every letter in both lower case and upper case look like it's upper case. Both forms look essentially the same, although they are barely distinguishable by shape.

In case you forgot, this is how the font in PR3 looks like:

I think a font with traditional lower case letters would be much better, because they are way less obnoxious and it doesn't look like everyone is shouting at you. Average readers comprehend sentences written in all caps as loud, because that's how we we've grown up to comprehend them.

I suggest replacing it with a font like one being used in this post. I am open to other suggestions, as long as they have traditional lower case letters.

The only argument I've seen against replacing the font is because it's nostalgic and we've had it from the beginning. Well, I've played Platform Racing 3 since day one, and I have hated the font right from the start.

I will make a poll in this thread so we can get an estimate of how many players would prefer to see the font changed.

Just make Action Man the default and have the ability to change it in the settings.

This is a really good idea. My knowledge of pretty fonts is lacking but I'm sure there are many to pick from.

PR3 font is one of the most iconic and recognizable parts of PR3, you can't just remove that.

I'm pretty confident that Jiggmin choose Actionman explicatly because it was the only decent and free cartoony font he could find.
Replacing it with a generic font is... well generic, and there are no good free cartoony fonts. (Most fonts usually have at least 1 or 2 characters that look bad)

If you can find a good replacement be my guest.

We dont need a new font, we need new players that dont complain about a font

It would definitely be a strange change at first, but the current font is undeniably gross.

I still want a more playful font, but Action Man is pretty awful all around.

But is Iso too cheap to pay the 35?
And possibly the 350 for mobile support?
(And yes these are the minimum prices)

Bearing in mind more people are against the change than for it, if it does happen, Cade's variant makes more sense, especially in tandem with the nostalgia element. Not that it really makes much difference, given that it should remember what font you have on, if implemented.

I don't actually care about the font; whilst I can admit it is ugly, I have seen it for 5 to 6 years; my eyes have gotten used to it.

In any case, I don't regard it so high in priorities, especially given most people there have, like me, had years to get used to it, including OP.
