Hello friends  Smiley

As a result of being altered, updated, etc. for different platforms; there have been quite a few changes to the "Son of Darkness" font since it debuted here about a year ago. In the case of a big update to one of the "other guys" boards in particular, unique functionality was implemented for which additional sounds had to be created. The functionality isn't directly transferrable to Obsidian/Diamond, but I've been able to incorporate some of these sounds into existing sounds, movements, etc.

Specifically, there are sounds that play immediately prior to "Power On" and sounds that play immediately after " Power Off". Many font makers used character dialog for this (which I did as well), but then I created a series of "Malfunction" sounds; 8 for pre-power on and 8 for post-power off. With the entire theme of the font being an unstable, unpredictable lightsaber; I figured a set of sputtering, sparking pre ignition sounds would be a nice compliment.

So... I have already mixed these malfunction sounds into the existing power on and power off sounds that were previously released, along with a few new power on sounds that have been developed since - and I will upload them to the existing "Son of Darkness" package for Ultrasabers.

Then of course, something that Ultrasabers has a definite leg up on the competition is the ability to control LED sequences. Neopixel blade control is getting better all the time, but there is still nothing close to the control we get via the Ultrasabers Launcher software. I am currently matching the malfunction sounds with LED sequences, and the accompanying effect files will be uploaded for your use as well.

Next, I developed a handful of sounds for a new "drag" effect for the same update. We do not have a drag movement on US sabers, but... some of you may find these sounds to be a grittier version of a lockup, so they will be uploaded as well.

Finally, I mixed ninety (90) pieces of dialog from the first two films of the sequel trilogy; focused on the antagonist primarily, but also some from his master. You can use these for pretty much anything you want, but can be quickly used as font title/boot sounds.

I'll try to put together a short video showing the new sounds with the LED sequences and post it here when ready  Smiley

Thank you  for sharing  these new sounds and effects DPM.
 It's good to see you back on the forum. I will check these out for sure. You know how much I like to add in dialogue for stabs and spins. I look forward to the video!

Thank you very much Kaiser, and a belated Happy Veterans Day to you ( :

I havenít gone anywhere and still peek in on the forum from the app; just have been tied up in updating the font.

Hello master. I am new to the order and I have been looking for some Kylo Ren fonts for my diamond saber that should arrive in a few weeks. Are these new fonts you have been working on done already? I didn't see a link to them and I am having trouble finding the old link you said you posted. This will be my first saber so please forgive the annoying ignorance of this apprentice.

 It is a really good font! Definitely check it out when you get your saber.  He plans to add more sounds when the movie comes out on blue ray.

bumping this as I love the Son of Darkness font... it's a beast.

As I killed my Dominicide previously while uploading and testing fonts (I was trying to make one based on the Imperial March) I've been ultracareful now that I got my Dom back.

Has anyone noticed diagnostic problems with the SoD RGBW font?  specifically, boot1 claims there are multiple LED points that are not multiples of 10ms.  I've used the editor and moved points around, but can't get rid of the channel 2 error.  Here's what I'm getting when I load SoD RGBW (.pfnt says it was made 10/7/2018):
Code:
>>>>> FONTS:
+ No errors found, checked 11 fonts.

>>>>> EFFECTS:
- Effect boot1 in font Son of Darkness has on Power channel 1 an invalid time point at #5. Should be multiple of 10 [ms]. Edit the effect and overwrite the font.

>>>>> SOUNDS:
+ No errors found, checked 335 sounds.

>>>>> GESTURES:
+ No errors found, checked 55 gestures.

I'm currently re-downloading the whole font file from dropbox to see if I mucked things up somehow...

Update Edit: looks like the batch I just downloaded has the same timestamp and everything... maybe I'll dump boot1 and try using boot2 (or boot3)

Edit 2: looks like boot3 has it's own set of problems
Code:
>>>>> EFFECTS:
- Effect boot3 in font Son of Darkness has on Power channel 1 an invalid time point at #4. Should be multiple of 10 [ms]. Edit the effect and overwrite the font.
- Effect boot3 in font Son of Darkness has on Power channel 2 an invalid time point at #5. Should be multiple of 10 [ms]. Edit the effect and overwrite the font.
- Effect boot3 in font Son of Darkness has on Power channel 3 an invalid time point at #6. Should be multiple of 10 [ms]. Edit the effect and overwrite the font.
- Effect boot3 in font Son of Darkness has on Power channel 4 an invalid time point at #5. Should be multiple of 10 [ms]. Edit the effect and overwrite the font.
- Effect boot3 in font Son of Darkness has on Power channel 4 an invalid time point at #7. Should be multiple of 10 [ms]. Edit the effect and overwrite the font.

These fonts are awesome. Exactly what I have been looking for to use on my Diamond controller. I just received my new renegade saber. Can't wait to dive into it.

Sorry folks; I have been using the Tapatalk app almost exclusively, and it appears that it has done a poor job of notifying me about activity.

I completed the updates, and was just waiting to shoot the video when... I figured I might as well add all of the TROS sounds. There are some great sounds; particularly force and drag sounds.

The update wasn't based on that originally; it was meant to incorporate sounds I created for capabilities found in the "other guys" boards.

Hey there! TLJ sounds were incorporated in the original release of this font a couple years ago. There is nothing from TROS yet, but I'm working on it. That is in fact the reason for the delay. The new sounds I spoke of were brought over from cool additional sounds I had to create for other versions of this font for other boards.
