Sorry, but I personally don't like any of them at all :S  Except Öhr GmbH, which is decent and is what i'm using as a place holder in my game right now.  But...they all are just sort of...bleh ..i dont' have a word for it.  We need the person who did the spring coding compo 2006 spash screens to come and do some new ones....because..those are realy well done. 

I may go ahead and give it a try...but....graphic design is not one of my strong points.  Maybe i'll bug a friend of mine to come up with something...

yay...hope isn't lost!

I like yours quite a bit retrohead.  I was talking about it with a friend of mine who does a lot of graphic design...we both think that the text needs to change and the text affects (bevel and emboss and so on) should be removed.  And my friend thinks a more "comic Book font" would be better suited to the overall design.  My friend also thinks the colors should be changed for the text.

Otherwise, i like it a lot ^^.

By the way, my friend recomends this font to use with your splash screen.

Thanks for all your positive comments. Here is version 2 of my splash screen using the font suggested by chatterbug89. Without a border on the text ot looks too plain and with a normal 1/2 pixel border it looks too jaggy so i again have applied the bevel border as i feel this looks best.

I will try to reproduce the neo flash font as best as i can but im not very good at fonts  :'(

Ok round 3, i have to go do some other stuff now so this is the final version for the minute. Like i said before, i'm not very good at making fonts so the neo logo may not be perfect as i made it by hand, i havn't got time to make a full font file. I thin kthe text is hard to read on this version. My favourite is the first i made still just the "A" looks a little jaggy:
