I'm sure you guys know this but just in case, you can download some pretty nice free font packs.

The original name was NEO-clan (back in the aok days) that stould for Never Ever Old. When they changed to aoe 3 it was changed to N3O, so it's NEO clan for aoe3 clan

Well, back in AOK we played mostly ip games. We had 15 guys that met every Thursday night and played. We had forums and a website but kept to ourselves pretty much. Nasty and I were the leaders. I was the ladder operator and webmaster. We did that for 3 or 4 years until AOE3 was released.

Strokey on the fonts you provided i think the bottom right one looks the best imo. It looks more AOE3 or TAD than the others ones, then the top left one.
The middle right one looks good, but doesnt fit in with AOE3, it looks more futuristic type design.
The others just look pretty basic.
From the OP maker of the OP Sigs, Cleeduz brings maybe some of his best work yet!

I would say bottom right or top left.

Can you tell me exactly which ones those are so maybe I can try to do something with them?

The bottom right one is "Calligraphic".

Hey guys, I know you still probably hate the font, but I've done some work on the rest of the banner, trying to make the colors fit a bit better and also making the background a little more interesting by putting some faint map outlines on it.

Here's a version without text in case somebody wants to put text on it:

[quote=""StrokeyBlofeld""]I can reduce the depth.... it is all adjustable, the depth, the shadow, lighting, bevel, etc. I think the colour is funny due to the lighting angles.

Some box standard fonts, ignore the colours, they are just default. Again, everything is adjustable.

I like the middle one to the right. Is there any way to include bullet holes on the font? Bullet holes would be sweet...

Might be possible to do that, I'm not exactly sure how but I might be able to figure it out.

I also like the middle right one. They're all fine though.
Groovy.
