There were some multicolor fonts, about 32 pixels wide, that were from a graphics disk some woman made, which appeared in lots of demos after the disk was released in 1987 or 1988, for example the Megaforce Megademo. Wouldn't mind those classic fonts being made available for others!

Tons here: http://cgi.algonet.se/htbin/cgiwrap?...cript=fonts.pl

Graphical fonts from intros, demos and games. No truetype or postscript fronts.

Thanx Ironclaw.. I mentioned that that link had been posted somewhere here recently.

But.. I'm all up for ripping more.. specifically amiga-based.

There are loads of fonts that aren't in the archive (but that's kinda obvious I guess eh?!)

I grabbed ~100 of my favourites from that archive...

http://ipdb.ath.cx/_pubtest/tagl/colourfonts.zip

I'm gonna download a bunch of demos, etc. now and get some to add here.

here a similar post with a link to Paradox site http://eab.abime.net/showthread.php?t=2980

@IronClaw : nice link

if someone of this project or Sprites ripp project is interested, i could send a CD with all gfx i've ripped in the past from games/demos + lot of gfx from the demoscene.

Thus you could see by yourself what could be used to the sprites, fonts or any similar projects.

ok, i reupload the old fonts i upload in previous thread.

- FontsAmiga were ripped mostly from demo. few from game : Backlash, Ballistix, Bio Challenge, Chamber of Shaolin, Pinball Magic, Plotting, Wings of Death, Xenon 1 & 2.
- FontsST came from Nices Fonts disk by Dad of IMPACT
- FreeFontST should came from a ST site but i can't remember more.

Those hand drawn pixeled fonts were so beautiful ! Hope you'll enjoy them
Respect to the original authors !!

I know this post won't fit the subject's bill, but i'll post it anyway..

Here's a windows program that can use ripped pixel fonts such as these to create website graphics or whatever you can think of! ^_^

http://www.stefan-pettersson.nu/bmpfont/

I tried it just a while ago by taking screenshots of C64 demos and doing the cut 'n paste trick on
each font (time consuming, i know) but it looked cool..
