Flixel Default Font Usage
« on: Wed, Aug 24, 2011 »
Hi all,
I was wondering whether the default font that is used by flixel( like when you use FLxText or create a button) can be used in commercial projects.
On a similar topic how do you all go about finding fonts for commercial use in games?


Thank you

Flixel is an open source game-making library that is completely free for personal or commercial use.

Afaik that covers the included font also.

I believe you can't..

money of it."

Where did you see that? I don't see any such message. Is it embedded in nokiafc22.ttf?

That's the font itself, the license.txt is where I found that quote.

Thanks guys, i have seen it in other peoples flixel games, but to be safe I'm gonna avoid using it.

 I'm gonna use the font auriplane uploaded, which is  a few threads down from this I believe.

Thanks!

This is an old thread, but I have some new info on this:

Flying Anchovies @Anchovygames
@zeh Hello! I'm making games in Flash with Flixel and this is the default Font used in the Flixel framework. How is your stand on the usage? - 21 May
   
zeh fernando @zeh    
@Anchovygames My standing is that I'm honored it's a default font and it's free to use for whatever purpose and no crediting/etc necessary
