Alpha Beta Created by Brian Kent


Thanks for Downloading Alpha Beta.

-Alpha Beta [.ttf]

-Alpha Beta [9pt] [.fon]

'alphbeta.fon' is a Windows Bitmap Font (.fon). This font is best

used at 9pt. To use it at larger point sizes (for images), try using

a graphics program like Photoshop, Paint Shop Pro, or the Paint

program that comes with Windows. Type out your text at the recommended

point size [9pt], then resize the image. Set the color mode to 256

or 2 colors so the edges don't get blured when resizing, then after you

have the text to the size that you want, then change back to a higher

color mode and edit the image.

For programs that don't show Bitmap Fonts in the Font Selector, you

may be able to get the font to work by typing in:

alpha beta -brk-

When using the TTF version, try using it with anti-aliasing off.

There's a couple of ways to install Fonts. The 'easy' way to

install fonts is to just Unzip/place the font file(s) into your

Windows\Fonts directory (I always use this method). If you're unable

to do it the 'easy' way, then try to do it this way (for Windows


1] Unzip the Font(s) to a folder (or somewhere, just remember where

you unzipped it) on your Computer.

2] Next, click on the START button, then select SETTINGS then


3] When the Control Panel Window pops up, Double Click on FONTS.

4] When the FONTS window pops up, select File then Install New Font...

5] A Add Fonts window will pop up, just go to the folder that you

unzipped the Font(s) to, select the Font(s) and then click on OK.

Now the Font(s) are installed.

Now you can use the Font(s) in programs the utilize Fonts. Make

sure that you install the font(s) first, then open up your apps

(so the app will recognize the font). Sometimes you'll have to

wait until you computer 'auto-refreshes' for programs to recognize

fonts (Windows is sometimes slow to do that). You can refresh your

computer quicker by going into Windows Explorer -or- My Computer and

press F5 (or in the menubar select VIEW then REFRESH).




-The font(s) in this zip file were created by me (Brian Kent). All

of my Fonts are Freeware, you can use them any way you want to

(Personal use, Commercial use, or whatever).

-If you have a Font related site and would like to offer my fonts on

your site, go right ahead. All I ask is that you keep this text file

intact with the Font.

-You may not Sell or Distribute my Fonts for profit or alter them in

any way without asking me first. [e-mail - kentpw@norwich.net]
