Hi I am looking for a Japanese Font. Any font would be fine but if I received a variety that would be nice. I can't seem to find where to download Japanese fonts. Thanks!

All "windows" computers have Asian fonts installed. I'd assume Mac does too, but I hate apple, so I don't know.

What I do, is go onto a Japanese site and get the characters I need and copy/paste into the project. Work 95% of the time with most modern computers. Not all characters are supported. If you have an Asian keyboard with kanji, you can set RPG Maker to Japanese mode when it plays via script for most RPG Makers.

My computer also does Hymmnos, and in a fanfic game I made, most of the writing for skills and signs are hymmnos. (Hymmnos is the language in the Ar Tonelico games)

Besides the Windows' default (MS Gothic & MS Mincho), there are many Japanese fonts on the internet. In Wikipedia, you can see this page.

Personally, I use M+ family font. It has a fixed-width variant, which helps when writing codes.

Check out for starters:

http://www.geocities.jp/ep3797/japanese_fonts.html

It will point you to a good number of Japanese fonts and gives some information on Japanese fonts.

I recommend you get the Tanuki Magic font. (Look for it on that page to find a link to its' site) I've seen that one used in several Japanese VX & VX Ace made games and it is my favorite Japanese font to use.

The theory has been proved. Based on an invisible image's data(the big red dot in the previous image), RM can identify different parts of an enemy and do something respectively. :kaojoy:
Ok.. coding what should be a simple "everyone is petrified and therefore dead, now go to game over screen" shouldn't involve needing to become Dr. J and dunking from the free throw line(my way of saying "jumping through hoops").
Hmmmm... how many xrays til I get super powers?
..of the major old school series that began in the 80s- early 90s, I still haven't beaten 'a' Zelda game. Mario 64 was the first Mario I've beaten. I don't know if I should give that honor to Link to the Past or A Link Between Worlds(I currently own both). Well technically I've haven't beaten a Sonic either (Game Genie doesn't count =P).

Time to add the "headshot" concept into the game so that people may actually aim at the heads when shooting zombies and get massive damage and armor-pen bonus as rewards. :kaojoy:
(The red area is just for visually debug purposes right now. But, it's possible that I will add something that displays the weak spots of enemies in the future.)
