WWW.SABERFONT.COM is LIVE!!!!!!!!
« on: February 28, 2012, 07:29:08 PM »
Hello Saberland! :D

This has been a long time in coming, and a lot of blood sweat and tears has been poured into this project. Back when the Petit Crouton was unlocked, it was deemed that there would be a need for a single place for the community to go and purchase soundfonts for their projects and completed sabers. With the volume of sales of the PC, and lately the Crystal Focus, and the new Igniter soundboards, it is now safe to assume that such a place could be supported. In the long long ago, sounfont sales happened behind closed doors, through PMs and emails, or even on a font maker's personal site. There wasn't a nice shopping mall of saber audio euphoria ;D. There wasn't an easy to use site to purchase and instantly download a quality soundfont. Well that time has finally come!

http://www.saberfont.com/index.shtml

The effort of Vader's Vault and the community's own XL97, Saberfont.com is THE one stop shop for soundfonts and more! We brought in the big guns for brainstorming like Novastar, Madcow and Erv' to put together a place that not only the community would have to buy the latest and greatest soundfonts, but also a place that would foster a new generation of soundfont authors and offer them a chance to be fairly compensated for their hard work. You see, Saberfont.com is not a static place, offering a set number of things. We want to inspire new blood to put on those headphones and get mixing! We hope to have many new authors in the future, coming up with new and innovative fonts for the current range of supported soundboards.

Saberfont.com supports soundfonts for the Petit Crouton, Crystal Focus, and Igniter soundboards, the soundboards that power the community. We are launching with select fonts from Novastar, Madcow, and FX's own Nightstorm for the Petit Crouton and Crystal Focus soundboards. Novastar and Madcow are the tried and true veterans of the soundfont world and they put their trust in us to launch with their fonts, especially as we go through "new site growing pains" :D Nightstorm was chosen because we have personally worked very closely with him by thoroughly testing his fonts and giving him feedback, and with the extreme popularity of the SWTOR game, his TOR fonts have great relevance. His attention to every minute detail and enthusiasm for the work were of the highest caliber, and something we look to have more of on this site. We hope to have more soon as submissions come in and get tested and approved, and should also have fonts for the Igniter soon as well...... just as soon as we receive submissions from the Igniter font makers ;) We also hope that this will be a place for the community to go for the hard to find product fonts like blaster fonts, and boot sounds, as well as other costuming and prop fonts. If you are interested in becoming a fontmaker for Saberfont.com, please see our page on submissions here: http://www.saberfont.com/submitAFont.shtml for more information.

* AS A LAUNCH SPECIAL, WE WILL BE FEATURING ALL NEW, NEVER BEFORE RELEASED FONTS FROM NOVASTAR. THE TRON LEGACY DISC FONTS, ONE WITH MUSIC AND THE OTHER WITHOUT, AND THE CROUCHING JEDI, HIDDEN SABER FONT. THESE FONTS ARE EXCLUSIVE TO SABERFONT.COM RIGHT NOW AND IS THE ONLY PLACE TO GET THESE GREAT NEW FONTS!*

All the eye candy, the coding.....pretty much all the hard work was done by XL97, who was a godsend to have on this project. I want to take this time to publicly thank him for everything he did for us on this project. It probably wouldn't have happened without him. I also want to thank my brainstorming group for their help and contributions as well as the support received from LDM, Tim at TCSS, MH and anyone else that I might have forgotten. This site is for you, the saber enthusiasts, the collectors, the community that has made everyone involved what they are. It is for the hard working font makers that in the past haven't received the accolades they deserve, or even sometimes the compensation they should. Please come and support your Font Makers, as they support you!

Thanks so much!

WOOOOOOHOOOOOOOO!

Everyone please support our community's great saber sound font makers by acquiring the fruits of their labours legitimately from saberfont.com where prices are reasonable, quality is outstanding, and font makers are respected.
To DREAM the IMPOSSIBLE DREAM. To FIGHT the unbeatable foe. To BEAR with unbearable sorrow. To RUN where the brave dare not go. To RIGHT the unrightable wrong. To LOVE, PURE AND CHASTE, FROM AFAR [-sigh-]. To TRY, when your arms are too weary; to REACH the unreachable Star!... This is my Quest; To follow that Star, no matter how hopeless, no matter how far...

Some people are reporting issues seeing the fonts. We are working to find out what browsers/plug ins are causing the problem. It seems to work for most people though. :-\

Sometimes clearing your cookies and reloading helps, particularly if you had checked out the site prior to it being live.

@Night and/or Dave316 Do you have flash disabled by any chance?  The site uses flash apps.
