    I am not sure whether this is the correct section for this, if not please move it to the correct one.

    I made this Font over a year ago, but I never posted it here, because of the Forum issues back then.

    It is just another Fanmade Aurebesh Font, but it has a few differences to any other Aurebesh font available before this one.


    This is the first (fanmade) Aurebesh font which covers the full ASCII Code, meaning it will display most English Text correctly without missing characters and incomprehensible Symbols like a Tie Fighter or the Alliance Starbird for brackets or special characters.

    Secondly it is the first (fanmade) Aurebesh font which is in OTF format (compatible with all mayor Operating Systems) and uses ligatures.


    This means the double characters(TH SH OO KH NG CH EO AE) will be displayed as they should (oo for example will be displayed as one Orenth instead off two Osk).
    (this only works in programs which support the use of ligatures, obviusly. Firefox does support them Chrome doesn't for example)

    It comes in 4 Versions:


    Two Normal Versions:

    Aurebesh: Arabic numbers regular Capitals
    Auretech: Technumbers regular Capitals

    Currently broken:
    Two versions with mirrored capital letters(like in Jedi Knight: Mysteries of the Sith) :
    Aurebesh Inversed: Arabic numbers Inversed Capitals
    Auretech Inversed: Technumbers Inversed Capitals

    So the question rameins what this could be used for.
    Firstly of course for fan-art or other fan-project.
    Secondly it can be used with any program that allows selecting custom fonts. With Firefox for example you can then Browse the whole internet in Aurebesh.

    This is really cool!
    I would love to try to use this with GIMP for fanart. Do you have a DeviantArt account or any other place you would want credit linked to?

    I'd like to package these fonts for other Star Wars/Arch Linux guys like me to use on our systems (effectively making the entire computer use aurebesh XD). Do I have permission to do this, and what license (if any) is this under?

    You certainly have my permission, but obviously the rights belong to the copyright holder of Aurebesh(e.g. Disney) meaning any commercial application is out of the question. That said as I guess your linux distro is free it probably shuldn't be a problem.

    Also as a side note I recently noticed that the font was rather broken and I only fixed the regular versions and not the inverted ones.
