News link

I remember the Mata Nui font, at one point in time I had it on my computer and used it pretty regularly. After playing the Mata Nui Online Game 2 and trying to decode the longer readable items, I had noticed the resemblance to regular letters in most and associated the few odd ones to the corresponding letters well enough to read it without a decoder present.

At one point in time I even got complaints from fellow mata nui font owners to turn it off in my settings when using MSN messenger, I didn't realize that since they had the font installed as well that they had to grab a translator to read anything I said XD

I've been able to read bionicle font as if it were normal text since '04. Maybe I should download it at some point. I can see it being handy.

Would it be possible to add it to the list of BBC fonts on the site? Does it fit the format? Makes sense that a Bionicle board be equipped to use the fandom's "language."

That is a very good idea, let me see if it can be used as a font preference for users to select to view the site with.

Edit: hmmm... it seems to be possible, but not quite the way I expected. It looks like I can add the name of the font into the coding and then users will see it if it's installed on their machine. Its not a matter of uploading the font to the board but telling the board to use a resource on your computer if it's available.

Ill keep looking but if nothing else works maybe I can make an alternate skin option which makes use of the font so it can be turned off without uninstalling it.

I still am trying to figure out how I can install the matoran font on my android devices, just incase if it gets stolen when the lockscreen isn't on.

As for reading the Bionicle alphabet, it takes me some time to read it without grabbing a translator, but I pretty much know all of the letters of the alphabet. I was a crazy Bionicle fan back then, that a lot of it retained since I was a kid.

Great minds think alike XP

I was trying to figure out if that was possible too. I'll let you know if I figure out a way, Though I don't think it will help if it gets stolen, someone can still put into download mode and reformat the device that way to gain the use of it and resell it.
