Golden Mask uses the wall of text by default (presumably because the EU logo is wildly inconsistent for this game, and the US logo only has the "Gold" subtitle, so they didn't bother).

This is a long shot - but if anyone knows what font they used for the legal screens across TR2 and TR3 (and TLA, which uses a different one), they should be fairly easy to recreate...

EDIT: Bingo.

Watch this space...

I recreated one but deleted because the adjusted US logo screen is included (I believe) in Arsunt's patch.

But the one I made is here:

Merry Christmas, y'all!

A full collection of legal screens for TR2, GM, TR3 and TLA - each in EU and US flavors, at 1920x1080 resolution, for use with Arsunt's and Peixoto's patches.

TR2 and GM both use the Footlight MT Light font, as seen in the PC version's credits, and the installation wizard. TR3 uses Times New Roman Bold, and TLA uses Calligraphic 421 BT.

(much love to my anonymous source, for these fonts )

To be clear, the GM screens are completely custom - I modeled the EU logo off the one seen in Arsunt's GM title screen remaster, and for the footer text, I took off the sequel number and amended the year of release, as they did with TLA.

if you wouldnt mind me pointing this out, apparently TR2 Gold has a slightly different official UK logo. it says "GOLDEN MASK" in the same style as the normal UK logo. i found it here on logopedia

EU Golden Mask has two different logos, technically. There's the one seen on the original title screen and the one seen on the Premier Collection box art and jewelcase.

The one that you linked is fanmade, as far as I can tell - because as you can see above, Vend˘me Bold isn't used for the subtitle in either official case.

Being that the original title screen seems to just use Times New Roman Bold, and Arsunt's recreation does as well, I went with that for simplicity's sake.

EDIT: Wait.

The one you linked isn't Vend˘me Bold, it's literally the Premier Collection logo without the golden effect. Well, well!

I might have to do that one too, then.

Here are slight alterations of Arsunt's remastered GM title screen with my custom EU logo, in 4:3 and 16:9 resolutions.

The Premier Collection logo looks like it uses Vend˘me Med, I'll be making a third version as soon as I can figure out the letter spacing.
