We blogged here a while back about a fantastic utility from Andreas Dreier called nxtRICeditV2, a way to edit the subtle and complex image files used by the NXT. But displaying anything other than simple images under NXT-G really wasn't possible. Now Guy Ziv over at NXTasy has authored a nice block to allow custom fonts, designed with nxtRICeditV2, to be used with NXT-G. Take a look here:
Advanced Display Text NXT-G block
He's done a really nice job on the interface, including built-in help, and included a couple of sample fonts (one with larger characters, one with smaller characters, and one that is upside-down). Take a look and try this out - it should install just fine under v1.1, or under v1.0 with the patch. Let us know how you use these! And thank you Guy Ziv for authoring some nice blocks for those of us who still like using NXT-G.
