Hello, I am currently looking for a font that resembles that of the older Final Fantasy games such as FF6. I wouldn't mind any font, but the one in particular that I am hunting for is the one used in Jessie Prices, Last Legend game.


If someone could help me with the search for a this font, or one like it, it would be much appreciated.

Try this site here: https://fontmeme.com/fonts/pixel-fonts-collection/ . They have a huge variety of pixel fonts, including a couple that are based on Gameboy or GBA games like F-Zero and Pokemon. Haven't seen a Final Fantasy one but I'm almost certain there's one that might superficially resemble it. Also, some of them are free only for personal use and not for commercial use.

As someone who've spent a fair bit of time searching for something similar myself, let me tell you that getting the result shown in that video is not as simple as choosing the right font. This is because RPGmaker, as an engine, tries it's best to add a blur effect to whatever font you use. This is fine for normal fonts but it destroys those types of pixel perfect fonts that you're looking for. You may be able to fix this with a plugin, but as far as I know no such plugin exists so you'd have to try and make it yourself... if you know how to.

What you can do, what I did, and what I suspect Jessie Price have done is to use an Sfont instead. It requires some work from your part and since it's not a normal font you can't really change the size and colors as freely, but it will be pixel perfect if you make it so. You're basically printing the letters from an image file and as such it will look like it's supposed to look (which also means it'll be the size you've drawn it to be and nothing else).

To use an Sfont you'd need to use this plugin by @Victor Sant.

I hope this helps.

Thanks for the information. After a bit of time using the tools provided by previous replies, I did find a font that is similar to the one used in the video. After a little bit more work, the font will look like it is fresh out of an GBA Game while not looking too blurry. I will continue to work on my project with the knowledge that you and the others have provided and I hope that soon i'll be able to share my progress with everyone else.

I want to learn Javascript to create a custom menu, but I don't really know where to start.
One uncomfortable truth that has withstood the test of time, is how most people will stand by while they see a crime happening, unless it's illegal to stand by. We probably wouldn't have stories about "special heroes" or games about heroes if the "everyday common folk" were largely capable of being heroes. Heroes face dangers that most people are not willing to.
I'm having toooo much fun designing the new MP (Mental Psyche) system. I've only worked it out for enemies so far, but it's fun to stun them, then go after their MP and delete them instead to farm for better item drops.
anyone know of a place I can promote my game? sorta like game awards but for indie devs, like a place where I can drop a trailer and like stir up some hype
