I love the font shown in the end credits (game\assets\movies\bink\SQ13.bik). Anyone know what it is?

Have you tried using What The Font (http://www.myfonts.com/WhatTheFont/)? It's a great tool that's served me well in the past :)

Thanks neon! :thumbsup:

It's either P22 Victorian Swash Regular (http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/p22/victorian-swash/p22-victorian-swash-regular/) or Goodfellow (http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/scriptorium/goodfellow/goodfellow/). (Looks like the former based on lower-cased l (ell), but the latter is freely available.)

Victorian Swash is slightly lighter then Goodfellow. There's a bit of a dowdy "free" version available called "Burtonsnightmare.ttf" I belief. And yes, that one was indeed used on the artwork of "A Nightmare Before Christmas"! :) It is a lovely font indeed.

And speaking of fonts, I really love this one: http://new.myfonts.com/fonts/3ip/castine/

It's a font called "Castine" and it's designed by a lovely chap called Brian Willson (and he never was a beach boy). The font was inspired by New England grave stones and I have always thought they'd be perfect for AME games! :)
