Not to diminish the significance of the font fix, but it was really the phrase 'development of OOTP 14' that made my tummy feel funny when I got that pop-up...

This is a test of what I say about understanding, somewhat, the logistical end of this business and therefore being willing to cut some slack.

I thought way back when that it was unlikely the font problem would be fixed in 13, because it would probably be too late and too much work for the remainder of this version cycle. But I was wrong!

So, what would be the point of digging up those old "Fix Font?" threads and rehashing them? For the purpose of saying "I told you so?" Or the satisfaction of highlighting someone's dismissive response when confronted with the issue here?

No, I'm taking the high road and I am doing so with the knowledge that sooner or later, all the problems encountered in this game WILL be resolved by its creator because he gives a very big damn about it and its community. Thank you, Markus.

You're obviously not in marketing. Product defects can be features and benefits.

Edit: not referring to OOTP.

Just to hook you up I'll preorder--even though I probably won't play it until it is nice and patched.

Also, I would like to pay a little extra

I'm not sure I can wait until January for OOTP 14 news. This is going to be harder than waiting until February for new Walking Dead.

I don't have access to the game at the moment. Can someone briefly describe what I should expect to be different with the font fix?

You can refer to them however you please - a bug is a bug, period. Calling something by another name doesn't change what it is.

And if your foolish enough to believe what the people in marketing tell you, well, as the old saying goes - a fool and his money are soon parted.

Geez chill. I work for a very marketing oriented business and I was poking fun at them.

Really not sure what you're talking about here. I dug up the font thread for the sole purpose to finally give it some closure.

I would say the fonts now are perfect and appreciate all Markus does in support of the greatest text sim I have ever played. Even when some versions ago, I didn't care for it's direction - I still preorder it every year without question.

During the whole year we have added improvements, features, tweaks and bugfixes. I really feel we did a good job supporting the game throughout the year. I hope you guys agree and will support us by buying OOTP 14 once it's released in a few months.
As long as your programming, I'm buying.

Finally able to update and I gotta say that the font is so much better! I really do believe that software companies like 2K and EA could learn a lesson or two from you guys.

Thanks!
