    TDP Main Menu Remake

    Here's a thing I made for some reason:



    To add to the video description, this turned out pretty much the way I feared, not the way I hoped. Particularly the main menu looks as good as it does because it's a pixelated mess, not despite of it. Even if I managed to perfectly replicate the geometry, materials and lights, it still wouldn't look good in high resolution. I sort of assumed that going in, but somehow expected better results regardless.

    Edit: I had some questions as well.

    That looks great!
    The forums are a bit quiet lately. People may be beavering away on contest missions or just hanging out in different corners of the web. Carleton is a popular font in Thief. It's used for briefing intros and such. Not sure if it will work here though.

    Looks good.
    The problem with main menu - even in newdark - it is capped at 640x480 resultion.

    And maybe that's just fine, no one's actually looking at the menu graphics, anyway.

    Yep. The menu items are Carleton, but "Looking Glass" and "Dark Project" are two different fonts, and neither is Carleton.

    Looking Glass could be Arno Pro Bold Display which is an Adobe font.
    A close font for the next one is My Happy 70s Semi Bold.

    That looks excellent. Only thing I'd suggest is to make the fonts a bit brighter, they're noticeably more muted than the original

    Sure, but these are also just placeholders. The kerning is different too.

    So it seems that the Looking Glass font is actually Charlemagne. It's also the title font of Outlander. Four seasons of this goofy show and only today I recognized the font.
