another flash optimised bitmap font. i based this on salut - so poor marks for originality.
the uppercase gave me a hard time so i'd appreciate any help there.

Nice nice nice!
Perhaps it still some problems of legibility, but it has a script feeling different than 9031's Bangalore,
wich was the only well-designed bitmap script font. (was...)
(Perhaps reconsidering upper part of the E and the diagonal of the M ?)

Good beatnik name too.

changed the 'E' and 'M'. i think the 'E' is improved but not sure about the 'M' - may have been better before.

I think the change to the E is great, although maybe the M still needs some work...

I don't know about that 'r'... maybe a more "handwritten" r would work better for me.

I would also look into making the 'k' look less like an 'h'.

anyway, overall I think it's beautiful and I would love to have it :D

Maybe the lonesome pixel (would be a great font name... by interest contact my *g*) at the 'K' and 'R' on the right downstroke have to go under the baseline.

I think also the 'X' and 'x' need some work.

The E seems looking better like that i think, but previous M was smarter.
Andrew's suggestion for the lowercase R sounds good: like this?

Revised the 'K' and 'R' as suggested and tried out the script-style 'r' - any comments?.

i tried a drop shadow too - which makes it look very tactile, it would be nice embossed.

Hi Joe

the drop shodow looks nice. Go on with both versions.

'K' and 'R' looks better now. Maybe you should try some different position for the 'lonesome' pixel. But I think it is also okay in this case. Maybe try to make the right stem (or bowl?) need also 2 pixel.

The 'j' looks a little strange. Have looked twice before I regonice that it is the 'j'. Maybe thats difficult in a text.

Greetings Jens
BTW: does anyone has a good site with all the terms in english?
