AKA typeface. I'm looking for the one specifically in the "You win!" and "Level start" screens. It looked a bit like Arial or Calibri but sadly it's not. Any knowledge or guesses would be appreciated.

He says he got a perfect match. Have you tried it and see what it looks like?

I ended up using 8pt, but 9pt is perfect. Thanks for clarifying after I did the cutscene <_< ;)

My version of GIMP is several years old and it includes padding in it's font sizes. I don't know why this would have changed, but apparently it has. Fonts and scales have never been easy to communicate about, too many standards originating from various technologies and systems of measurements.
