Bit mapped fonts

Hey all.

I'm having trouble getting the bit mapped fonts to load and was wondering where there would be a tutorial on carious uses for bit mapped fonts.

Did a search for the term "Bit Mapped fonts" and came up with nothing.

Surprised.

Also, I have found a utility that makes the bit mapped fonts but the spacing varies.

Is there a general algorithm for compensating for this or should I use a mono space font?

Highslide JS

Try "Bitmap font", you'll find loads of stuff.

The creator you pictured should output a .ini/.font/.txt/.dat file, somewhere, which will list the widths of each character. That should help you, or you'll find other fixed-width creators out there.

"Bitmap" not "Bit Mapped". You'll find plenty.

there is no .dat file with the widths.

I would probably have to scan the file and find the widths.

It only outputs the image file.

*** I found a program that does out the specifications that you mentioned. ***

It gives them for each character all 192 of them. Much better

There is also JuicyFonts. It is free, and comes with .BB source.

I may be using it wrong but Juicy is giving me problems.
When I put the width and the height in BB, it gives me a not enough frames.

You don't use it as a normal image; see Juicy Font manual #using_fonts

Ah

I missed that page completely. Some other pages as well.

** I got it working but it does not font smooth or anti-alias the type.

Not working right.

I may have to write this program in freebasic or some software that has built in font smoothing.
