I found a small problem with 2 fonts in the 7-font SumiSlasherOne family that Elaine reposted in alt.binaries.fonts. I download the fonts here and checked. The fonts here have the same problem.
You can't use VTC-SumiSlasherOne Regular, VTC-SumiSlasherOne Italic and VTC-SumiSlasherOne Small Caps at the same time. If you open the 3 fonts at the same time, the first font opened will be the one activated - will be shown in Fontview preview of the other two fonts. Also, only one of the 3 fonts appears in Photoshop's fonts list. I have no idea what will happen if you install the fonts.
The problem is easy to fix in Fontlab and I can do it myself but I prefer that you do it since these are your fonts. To fix the problem in the italic font, you need to check the "Font is italic" check box (Font Info -> Names and copyright). For the Small Caps font, you need to add "SmallCaps" in the font's family name -- from VTC-SumiSlasherOne to VTC-SumiSlasherOneSmallCaps. It is up to you whether to retain or not SmallCaps in the style name. There's nothing to change in the Regular font if Italic and SmallCaps are fixed.
Too bad that you are no longer posting your fonts in ABF. Peopke in ABF surely missed you and your fonts. If you ever decide to fix the two fonts, can you post the 2 fixed fonts in ABF?
BTW I can't open VTC-SumiSlasherOneJitteryBasterd in Windows98SE but have no problem loading it in Windows XP. I have no idea why! I generated an OTF to test and it opened OK in ATM but no luck with the TTF.
Great fonts you are making.
