Some history first: Harald "Wild_1" Koenigsperger, a good friend of us, once asked me (HH) on a Descent session, how
one could create a Windows TTF font. I told him, I only know that CorelDraw! 6 is capable of creating of TTF font files.
He then planned to create TTF fonts out of the famous Descent 1/2 fonts. I sent him a file which modified the credits text
to a listing of the complete ABC in all fonts, he took a screenshot of it and so had a template and so started the work.
The rest is history: his fonts become with no doubt the most famous Descent fonts for Windows and still a lot of people
are using it in Kali.
We are now the only official website left for his fonts (his pages are not existing anymore). So now bring some Descent-touch into your Windows
desktop and download the fonts:
