It wasn't too bad, just took a very long time to do.
That was mainly because I've barely used/seen the glyphs themselves.
I think the link to the Alternative Version you're looking for is this: mattyhex.net/CMR/media/fonts/C… (I know that the downloads page isn't 100% clear on what's what.)
And yes, the font used on most official merchandise is Generation B, there's details/links to purchase that on my CMR website too.
Again, yes, I do like spotting my font appear in other's work (since I've had loads of people download it, but I don't know who's using it, so it can appear literally anywhere!)
