You know, of course, that if you're running OS X you can use "PC" True Type fonts?Originally posted by verbose101
Does anyone know where I can get the font used for the matrix, I can't see a mac version anywhere only peecee.
Look for the source for the Matrix SS for linux, I wouldn't image this would be too hard to port to BSD, who knows, some inventive sould might have already done it!Originally posted by peterjhill
To add to the search, how about a matrix screen saver, the one I had on my pc was pretty damn cool.
Absolutely. Just drop True Type fonts into the Fonts folder (and generally restart whatever program you're working in). Works like a charm.Originally posted by sphereboy
Is this for real? .. How would you do that?

Here it is, it's a zip file with 2 PC true type fonts - "Miltown" & "Miltown II", they both are matrix style, and as cleo said they will work under OS X. Anyway, here it is...Originally posted by dukestreet
Nice, I want that font, dammit!
Apple has the patent on true type fonts, I think. That's how come they work on Macs. I remember hearing it said that the full name is "Apple True Type Font".Originally posted by verbose101

The screensaver is called iX Xirtam, i downloaded it from Apple's software pages a long time ago i think... should be bundled with a bunch of other stuff, look for the name iX.
i will say tho, you have to play with the settings for a while to get it to look right... but it looks cool!
It's not all Japanese, although mostly. There are some reversed English letters and numbers in there as well.Originally posted by Tokyo
Just for the record, the font used for the Matrix "waterfall" screens--the screens which supposedly show Matrix code--are Japanese. Specifically, the text is in a special Japanese alphabet called katakana, a phonetic alphabet used to approximate foreign sounds.
And it's displayed backwards.
