    Thanks for your time and links. I liked to the HeroQuest title font a couple times above. I only have GIMP. I'll try to follow that first tutorial for PS, but my gold gradient overlay just looks like a solid green-brown, not a gradient for some reason...

    Yeah I know but you really need a font for it. I have found one chap here making one and has the font made for download. So start here:

    I think the problem is he doesn't want something similar. He wants an exact replica...

    Oh ok, well I am not doing well today then... I have another image in case its useful.

    I think if you need that fill pattern then setting up a custom gradient is probably the way. I would steal the gradient from the image and mask in the new lettering tho... Maybe ill try that.

    I think it needs a gradient as well as a bevel profile to get the same effect from the original. I've only got a couple of minutes until I'm out the door for a game but I'll give it a go...will post if I come up with something.

    Edit: Here's the best I could do quickly. This uses the font linked above (which doesn't *really* match) on a layer with an outline and a bevel with a contour. Over that is a faked overlay gradient using the original colors. To get something like the original you're going to have to either do it painstakingly by hand or use a good bevel plugin - I think there's an Alien Skin one that'll do this. If you want the letters to match more closely I'd expect you'd have to do those by hand too...or at least pull in the kerning or whatnot by hand. I know that's not quite the answer you were looking for. I'd have posted the PSD file but it's not really close enough for a cigar so I'm not bothering. Good luck getting it figured out!

    That's freaking perfect, Mearrin!!! Not sure why you think it's so far away?

    Now, if it only said Spell Quest I could have used that! XD

    Well, if it's good enough...here's one with the proper text. Uploaded as a transparent PNG, hopefully at a large enough resolution to be useful.
