Splash Screen Shenanigans

Knocked this new splash screen out today.

After doing some research, I found out that the actual Gamespy font is Compacta SH-Black. There was no way that I was going to pay $26 to use it only one time though. I ended up using Haettenschweiler which is a free font that looks close but is a bit skinnier.

What I did was paste the image of the text in Haettenschweiler in a new image, and then stretch that image horizontally until I got it the right size and width. It took a lot of manipluation to get it to look right, but I think the end result speaks for itself.
