Negatori font license says "This font may be freely distributed and is free for all non-commercial uses."

It violates Section 10 of GPL v3 http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl.html

You may not impose any further restrictions on the exercise of the rights granted or affirmed under this License.

Negatori font adds restriction to entire package (non commercial use only).

Please consider replacing it with GPL compatible font.

This is reported in debian at http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=590979

Thanking You
Arnav.

Thanks for letting us know Arnav. Seems we have to find a new font to fit into Egoboo. This will probably change the interface look of Egoboo pretty much :o

[edit]
I have replaced Negatori with the GPL compitable Bo Chen font -> http://www.dafont.com/bo-chen.d2701
[/edit]

I always loved that Negatori font... but this seems like it can't be helped.

I will look for a font as fitting as Negatori... I promise.

Also this problem says we can't use FMOD for the very same reason.

I made a font which maybe could be used for Egoboo, but I don't know. It only has uppercase letters, and it sucks, but well. I tried to be helpful. :lol:

I find it actually quite nice... It seems a bit like an Arialization (like Arial, which is an Arialization of Helvetica) of Negatori, though.
If it had lowercase, it could be a replacement... With which program did you create that?

Photoshop for the images and FontCreator to make it a font.
I'm WAY too bored and lazy to make lowercase, as making those was horrible pain for my wrist. I don't know why, but making fonts, for some reason, is horribly much harder for me than making something else. :?

Lol, I pushed the install button on my fontviewer thingy. XD
It's pretty good.. too bad about your hand hurting, though. Clonks doesn't like people typing in all caps. (lol)

It looks cool, but it doesnt work properly ingame. Only some letters appear.

I was going to propose Woodmouse's solution. A font contributed by our community would be the ideal solution.

Or voted upon from a selection of other, similar or better fonts?

No, that is not what I meant.

There are major problems with license compatibility between available font licenses and GPL v3. Likely any font we choose would be "incompatible" in the same way as Negatori, which is "This font may be freely distributed and is free for all non-commercial uses".

The only easy solution would be to have someone from our community create a font to the project under GPL.

Negatori, after all, was an extremely simple font.

The font that is currently in the SVN now is under the GPL v3

But yeah, an unique font from the Egoboo community would be awesome :)
