Well it definitely has 'power'... :cheesy:

Yasss! I expect you have installed it on all your sabers already  :evil:

Working my way through installing it on all of them right now...  :huh:

Never gonna happen, but it would be as funny as heck if anyone had it installed and forgot until showing a friend or an audience his/her awesome lightsaber....

FYI, I've done several events now with my curved hilt saber with the Metropolis inspired font, and absolutely everyone has been floored by it. Your font works very nicely on a Bane inspired saber.

I did a small customisation to this font that has made me enjoy it even more:

I really like the first two hums and found it hard to choose between them. The distinctive Metropolis 'notes' overlayed on the default hum are fantastic, but there's also something appealing about the second hum that has this removed (and the third hum with the strings removed as well is awesome as well, but I like how the layered sounds make this font more distinctive, which the third one strips away).

Anyways I really wanted to have the best of both hums, so to speak, with the first two - so I loaded the second hum as the main one, and spliced the main hum onto the end of one of the blaster sounds. This means that it has hum2 most of the time, but if I want the 'notes' to kick in just tap the blaster block. The crossing point is the same, so it transitions nicely back to the main hum after the 14s or so of the loop, and by default you can interrupt it with a clash or lockup (but not a swing) to get back to the main hum. Currently still have this on a CS saber, so I only have one blaster block - on a CF this could be done with the third one as well to mix things up even more (although this might be going a bit too far!). Also on a CF as I remember you can configure the blaster priority which would affect this.

Anyways, just thought I'd mention this as I think it works brilliantly with this great unique font - thanks again for this one.  :grin:

Wow yourself! Thanks, I really appreciate high praise from someone with your skills and prolific creativity. I love the sounds that you and Lord Blako both produce above all.

I do plan to continue to make fonts as I learn and I have 3 waiting for approval on saberfont.com

funny story: one of the first fonts I made once I felt I had the chops to do it was a Predator font which I had planned to release as a freebie.

Only afterwards did I find yours (which is awesome btw) and I REALLY love the AVP font too which I will be purchasing.

Yes I know this topic is old, but I have something to offer. I love that I found this font, much love to the OP.
I tweaked and remixed and added and made smoothswings etc...
The naming convention is for use on my proffieboard, your mileage may vary.

However, I can not post an external link........Not trying to break the rules, so would someone let me know how to share here?
