Hi there, since I was making my first tools for this game. I had always a question in mind: What font the game uses?
You know, the typical and million times seen medieval typeface. Always referenced as 'Native font', 'the old one' and such...

So today I posted a request in the proper section of Dafont.com, a renowned community of experts + a great, huge, and free high-quality repository.
http://www.dafont.com/forum/read/1687/mount-blade-standard-font


I have a response.

There are two versions of Mordred.
They use a commercial version with the different 'r' 't' and 'x'





plus a Shadow version too



But where is the commercial version ??

The free version can be  DOWNLOADED FREE OF CHARGE  with GNU/GPL license. Taleworlds has used "Mordred Bold" for the in-game interface. The shadowed version it's here.

Hope you find this useful. Now you can make your mod's design, logos and other useful artwork with the real assets. My Quest have finished!
Enjoy! :smile:



[anchor=logo]EDIT: I've also found the Main logo's real font and a neat substitute.[/anchor]

The Mount&Blade's Logo original font: [Caslon Antique VL]


(The Ampersand is custom made...)


Use the Free Version, is the same but with less glyphs.
[!] Props to [taragoth] for the discovering ... [Caslon Antique]


Use Dominican as alternative if you want.
[Dominican]




Warband subtitle was pretty easy... [Mason Serif Regular]


But use the free [Morpheus]




EDIT 2: Some more findings...

-TaleWorlds Logo (Both free):

Forkard: http://www.dafont.com/folkard.font?text=TaLeWorLds&psize=l
Euphorigenic: http://www.dafont.com/euphorigenic.font?text=Entertainment&psize=s

There's a lot more of interesting stuff in the FTP site... Thanks to the Nameless One for the Access Credentials.
That's it.

Some corrections and a bunch of high definition designs and artwork from the "secret" Paradox press site.
And I know. Needs some organization, when I find time I'll do a table.  :wink:

Let me know if you want something more specific.

Nah! They simply relocated them... Links fixed.

It's a FTP service anyways, so you can navigate over it using Filezilla or any modern web browser,
the same applies for any other press repositories available on the Internet.

There are a good bunch of files over there, ranging from concept art to PSD files that can be useful,
even if they're mainly for articles in videogame magazines.

Have fun.  :smile:

Informations about the fonts of Napoleonic Wars? :smile:
Looks like they're just using Trajan, it's a pretty overused font. If you pay attention in your daily life you'll find it everywhere.


Here, here, here... :smile:

Anyways, they had an older logo and coverart that you can get at Paradox FTP:

They use Vendetta Bold with small-caps in the cover art:
Code:

The bad news is that it costs about $40 (29€). Still much better choice than Trajan Pro, at least it shows personality.

I have just found out that the Warband collection on the press site has been pretty much been deleted .. there is some videos there and thats all.. All other M&B games files are still available if people are still looking for the high res art for them and others.

I've found another one font, i think it is the seed of M&B, not Mordred.
This font is Galahad
This thread is old, but it's still useful, I will post my findings.

I can confirm that. I'm working on the launcher skin file and I replaced the text with Mordred, but found some minor mismatches for a few letters while Galahad fits perfectly. Also, Current Module (on the launcher) is using Vinque font.
