Thank you and you're welcome! I also prefer the PSX style logo because it's less obstructive on the title screen, better margins to be frank.

Edit: For context: This is my previous one.

Core let Alex Davis (the famous "xela" in the level files ) go haywire on the PC version. Every function he wrote he put an `a` prefix (his initial).
almost every function that starts with this prefix happens to be broken from flyby rolls, to lack of lighting, and everything in between
Although I have to say, the squished startup screen is the one I prefer :v it's nostalgic to me for some reason :v

I see... Thanks for the explanation! And I agree with you, the squished startup screen is very nostalgic

EDIT: Nevermind, I was making my own legal screens for TLR and Chronicles and in the end I decided to use comic sans. I think they both look really good. I'm pretty proud of myself because I've never really created a mod before. I even made widescreen versions too. I might upload them if I can find a good way to do so.
The image is not good enough quality to be certain of the original font but it is likely a common one.

I tried Arial Bold and whilst it definitely is not that it looks pretty good. The 'r' and 'g' are not the same and the kerning of letters like the 'L' in Limited is tighter than in the original font too.

It does look like it is a Bold or Semi-Bold font whatever it is.

I'd also try Helvetica - I do not have it on this PC but when its not Arial or one of the commonly used MS fonts like Tahoma, Sergoe or MS San Serif then Helvetica is a good next try.

If you still want to find the original font from a font identification web site you'll need a better quality original to work with.

I just used Arial when I made mine, I don't care enough for 100% accuracy for a simple splash screen

I get a bit OCD about stuff like that.
