Talk:How to display negative numbers with the digital font

This really ought to be an EDuke32 feature... offloading hackish stuff like this to CON coders is really counterproductive, IMO. --Helixhorned

The issue would be how to generate an appropriate negative symbol for all art sets. I made this one simply by shaving everything but the center part of the 8, but that may not always work. On the other hand, everything about fonts in the game is hackish. One of the fonts (red font?) is annoyingly out of order to be used consistently for text commands from CON. The blue font supports lowercase (though unused by default) yet none of the others do, and so on. -Hendricks266 (talk) 14:30, 21 March 2012 (PDT)
