How to create .fnt file from bitmap font ?

Hello everyone,

 

I would like to use a font stored only in a bitmap file, like the ones used in the old amiga demos for example :)

 

I can not find any tool to make the .fnt or .xml files...

 

I can find truetype to .fnt, but no bitmap to fnt..

 

Please could you help me ?

Ops, No you are right my fault. 

 

Hmmm ... what you could do is the following:

 

- Use any TrueType font with BMFont

- Configure BMFont in the way your original Bitmap Font is (size, spacing etc)

- BMFont generates the .fnt and a .png file

- Look at the png file - if the true type chars are in the same size, order etc as your bitmap font - simply  replace the file

 

This would work - however I guess you need to do some additional manual work while editing the png.

 

Sorry again for the confusion.

Hello Benny and Pixi.js !

 

After some work, I wrote a small java tool to create .fnt file to use with bitmap fixed size fonts.

This tool resolve my problem.. There may be another tool doing this but I didn't found it ..

 

This is my first java program so there may be mistakes, bugs, etc.. Feel free to give me feedback ;)

 

Hope it will help someone..

This is a tribute to the excellent Pixi.js ! :D

 

Enjoy !
