Font from Betrayal At Krondor, (C) 1993 Dynamix / Sierra On-Line. Italicized version of the bitmap typeface that starts and ends most chapters in the greatest computer RPG of all time, "Betrayal At Krondor". 100% accurate, thanks to Flowswitch at the xBAK forum, although kerning may be off slightly. Based on the "Naples" font from EA's 'Deluxe Paint II Enhanced'.

I've noticed lately that you changed the font names from "Royal Krondor" to "Betrayal at Krondor Chapter" and from "Standard Krondor" to "Betrayal at Krondor". Did you also updated the font itself?

If I remember correctly you also made the Antara font but I can't find it anymore. What happened?

@Yabon - Hello!  When Rob offered @Patrick Lauke (redux) and me the opportunity to curate the "Game Recreations" category of FontStruct, I renamed my gaming fonts to bring them more in line with Patrick's nomenclature system.  No changes or updates have been made to these fonts -- only name changes.

Krondor was done by Dynamix on a completely different game engine than parent company Sierra's SCI engine, so I kept the 'Krondor' names; however, because Sierra had a stable of fonts that were used across many different games, I followed the non-descriptive 'numeric' names that Sierra used...

The Antara fonts are still here on Fontstruct -- just under different names:

Sierra Font 501 fon (Royal Font of Antara)

Sierra Font 503 fon (Standard Font of Antara)

Alternately, you can search for 'Antara', 'Sierra', or similar keywords on FontStruct, and the above two fonts will be displayed -- along with many other wonderful fonts!  :^)

Thank you for the info and fonts.

Something is off with the FontStruct search engine because when I typed "Krondor" I found the Krondor fonts (admittedly not on the top of the list), but when I typed "Antara" there was no matches at all.

When I pressed the "Antara" tag button on the Antara font page there were 3 results.

Strange.

@Meek / @Yabon - I see what you mean with FontStruct's search engine.  It appears to be using only the first three letters to generate the list, with those letters being found either at the beginning of a word in the font's name or at the beginning one of the words in a tag.  I tested the following:

• Keyword "Antara" appears to pick fonts that also contain "Ant-" as the first three letters at the beginning of a word within the name or tag:

- 105 picks for keyword "Ant"

- 103 picks for keyword "Antara" (results include those containing "Ant-" in the name or tag)

-- Actual number of fonts containing the complete keyword "Antara" (either in the name or a tag) from the list of 103 picks = 2 fonts (both are mine)

• Keyword "Krondor" appears to pick fonts that also contain "Kro-" as the first three letters at the beginning of a word within the name or tag:

-- 14 picks for keyword "Kro"

-- 14 picks for keyword "Krondor" (results include those containing "Kro-" in the name or tag)

-- Actual fonts containing the complete keyword "Krondor" (either in the name or a tag) from the list of 14 picks = 6 fonts (4 of mine and 2 from Blu3vib3)

So you've discovered the secret formula just like that :) I'm in shock :)

In my opinion it makes the search engine pretty useless in case of common letter clusters, especially when the person has no idea how the engine works.

Comment by Yabon 14th July 2019

@Yabon - Hopefully @Meek can tweak the search engine to look for the actual complete keywords themselves and not parts of the keyword(s) (which is how it appears to function now).
