Default fancy names

I understand the character map thing to get most of them


But if anyone knows TILT...how did he get those HUGE letters?

Thanks

I know what letters your on about and the majority of players find them annoying in the chat and think they look a bit daft in the spacemap...

However if that's what your after then the way to get characters that aren't on the character map is to hold down 'Alt' and press a series of numbers on the number pad, right end of your keyboard.

Example: Alt 225 = ß

Does it look like this?
▀█▀ █ █▄ ▀█▀

If so, you'll find them down towards the bottom of the character map, where there are a few block-characters. Below them are the Arabic and Hebrew characters.

Here is also a great Special Character Chart you can use, sure it's Sunny Neo, but it works!

All the fonts appear in the one DO uses; I wish I knew what it was, as that would help in name-making, but we don't know.
The simple fact is, font doesn't matter.
