Sliders – Interdimensional


…A Sliders Font


I haven’t seen the show in quite some time, I made this while it was still on FOX and before they effectively killed the show.

Interdimensional FAQ

Welcome to Interdimensional v.1.0!

Q. WTF is Interdimensional?
A. Interdimensional is a fan-made font based on the lettering in the FOX show Sliders, but is not a precise duplication. The official lettering uses a font called Vienna Extended which was originally distributed by ‘ITC – Typefaces’ and ‘Esselte Letraset’.1990. Design by: Canadian designer ‘Antony De Meester’.

Q. Where can I get Interdimensional?
A. The most recent version may be downloaded here from this page. For the official font used on the show, Vienna Extended, follow that link to purchase it from ITC.

Q. Is this a TrueType Font?
A. Yep.

Q. Can I get it for a Mac too?
A. Yes, try this. If you have trouble, In the meantime you can download a TrueType converter so the PC version will work on a Mac.

Q. Can I get it in Postscript (type 1 for PCs or 3 for PCs/UNIX) instead?
A. Yep (Type 1) and Yep (Type 3).

Q. How do I install this in Windows?
A. After you unzip the file, drag interdim.ttf to the c:\windows\fonts folder.

Q. How do I install this on a Mac?
A. If you have problems, and are using a mac: hold down the mouse button on the link above, and choose the option to save the file to disk. Then open up StuffIt Expander, choose File > Expand… And select the file you just saved. (note: If it warns that the file might be damaged, choose YES to continue, it still works.) Then double click the “Interdim Folder” icon to find the Interdimensional Suitcase, and drag it to your system folder (or preferably to the Fonts folder inside your system folder.)

Q. Is this a complete font?
A. Yep, and if you look hard enough you’ll find a few Sliders-themed extra special characters.

Q. Is this shareware? Will it cost me anything?
A. Nope, its completely free, enjoy! I recommend purchasing the original Vienna Extended font though, as it is superior in design and implementation.

Q. Free? Why did you do it then?
A. I wanted it for personal use and figured others would want it as well.

Q. So how close is this to the actual font used on Sliders?
A. As close as I could possibly make it from what I had to go by, but it’s not precise and there are significant differences in many letters. But if you want the exact font, see Vienna Extended.

Q. Do you work for FOX?
A.  I am in no way affiliated with FOX.

Q. Can I put the font up on my site/whatever?
A. Sure, I just ask you at least let me know that you are going to put it on your site, its not required but its nice to know where its going.
