  • Racing font needed

    I am trying to locate a free font (not an alpha) that looks like the text is speeding along--lines out the back of the letters. Anyone know where I can find a font for racing?

      With Vista how do you download fronts.I have tried with not results.I have downloaded on the other windows no problem.I hate Vista and I have had it for over a year and it sucks.I got the vista when it should have not been put out so early.So needless to say I have all the bad quirts in it.I hate when you buy a computer and are forced with Vista.You should be able to have what you want in it.

        Eye, Microsoft have a habit of doing this. They publish and sell software before all the testing has been done and the bugs ironed out. Basically, we the public are left to struggle with awful programmes and are the guinea pigs. Why do you think every time something goes wrong, there is a "report this problem" box for sending the information to Microsoft. It was recommended to me that I put XP Pro onto my computer, and to wait until at least Service Pack 2 came out before upgrading - even the techie guys were saying that Vista was useless. I managed to get a copy of XP Pro in January of this year. It might be an option for you too.

        What does your computer tell you when you try to download a font? I will see if I can help

            Of course they would, they operate on a percentage commission basis for every system they sell with Vista installed. If you can get hold of the discs for XP and know someone who is good with computers, back up all your data and ask them to format your hard drive and install XP for you if that is the system you know and are happy with. Then re-load your programmes and data and you should be good to go.

            Unfortunately this is not a one or two hour process and whoever does it for you should firstly know what they are doing and secondly have the time to do it right. About a day or two to do a proper job. There will be a lot of updates that need downloading and installing - takes time.

            As to the font downloads, I will do some internet research and see what I can find out for you.

              The only fonts that I know of that come even close to that description are "Wind", but the lines are in front (commercial font). Others that could be a possibility are BAMF Gradient, Where is the Rest, and maybe one or two in the eroded and distorted sections on dafont.com

                Eye, installing fonts in Vista is the same as it was in XP. download your font. Unzip it. Go to control panel. Select "classic view" on the left side. Then you will see a folder called "fonts". Just drag them into that folder and the will install automatically.

                  There's a font called "STORM" that I think might be what you are looking for. I've seen it at many of the free font sites... Hope this helps!

                    Microsoft actually did what they said they would never do -- you can now choose to order a computer / laptop with XP or Vista. They normally do not go back in versions, but Windows Millenium and Vista were both soooooo bad, it would have killed any other company. Face it, Microsoft dominates the PC world. You could go with Lenix, but don't have the wide software choices you do with Windows (Microsoft).
                    Hope you can acquire XP. If you do, be sure to back up everything!

                          Car Font

                          This site has some unique fonts:

                          http://http://www.simplythebest.net/...ent_fonts.html

                          There is a font called "cartown" but the cars are not racing. It is more for a kids page but I wasn't sure what you would be using it for.

                            Thanks everyone for the sources. I knew I could count on this group to lead me in the right direction. "Storm" was perfect when I looked at it on the site. Now I have to test it. Keep that font in mind for all those SPEED RACER layouts.

                              Thanks for all the help. If you look at the "layouts" section of the gallery, you will see that the storm font was just what I needed to finish the layout.
