Default Font Generator Tool

Well, since it turns out to work pretty well, I'm sharing it here. It makes use of SE1's "MakeFONT" program and was originally made for Serious Sam Revolution.

Screenshot, because I can...

Download here: http://4o4.nl/FontGenRev13.exe
How do I use this tool? See this post: http://forums.seriouszone.com/showpo...6&postcount=28

You need .Net 4.0 to run it: http://tinyurl.com/GS-Net40 This is no longer the case, you need .Net 3.5, which every Windows 7 computer has installed.
And you need ImageMagick for it to be able to save your texture as .tga: http://imagemagick.org/script/binary...es.php#windows

I've never used makefont my self this program is very easy! Before, I just exported their fonts (to get the number's position) and then place my font a top and re-import it in the game. Now there is a easier way. A much easier to use tool. Nicely done Angelo
Then Net 4.0 - crap! It won't install on my Window XP! It seems like I'll have to use another operating system with Net 4.0 installed then :/

Small update: (Let's call it 1.1)

- Fixed an issue with characters aligning.
- Better preview of cells.
- Removed some useless multiple '*' characters from the default charset as they were causing '*' characters not to show up ingame.

Download: http://drop.4o4.nl/FontGenRev11_35.exe

You can just add those characters in the "Character set" text field, if you want to.

Have you re-installed dot-net 4.0? I got an all-in-one dot net installer which is pretty helpful indeed.
I am using xp as well but not dot net 4.0, because of fusion won't load.

I also noticed with these *viruses* - i hate them so much. They stuff up Dot Net framework's functioning. I had a program once that stopped functioning because of it.

You need to convert the .tga to a .tex file.
Open serious editor or modeler, and go to File > Create Texture and select your texture it's very simple

Default Re: Font Generator Tool

Put FontGenRev.exe in your game's Bin/ folder and run it.
Make sure you have ImageMagick installed and the app has the right path to it in the font generator.

Make your font and give it a name (important, this will be part of the filename!):

http://4o4.nl/1Y8yH5v.png

Click Save and save the .tga to the Fonts folder:

http://4o4.nl/POviscx.png

At this point, Serious Editor will automatically open; (DO NOT close FontGen yet!!!) you need to make the texture:

http://4o4.nl/q4L6fC9.png

Select your font:

http://4o4.nl/p9UMeGZ.png

http://4o4.nl/r6sPoTb.png

Click Create and close Serious Editor.

Back in the font generator, click on the "MakeFont" button.

Select the tex file that it generated:

http://4o4.nl/Gp33cd1.png

http://4o4.nl/yyFR400.png

There should now be 4 files in your Fonts folder, where the files marked with Red are the only files you really need: (.fnt and .tex)

http://4o4.nl/a4M15fe.png

Hope this helped.

hmmm. i never actually used makefont before.
I see why. I was replacing the original fonts with my own so I don't need a .fnt file. I think i must have a .fnt file if I create a completely new font.

No, even if you change the font you will need a new .fnt file. This is because the fnt file contains the positions of the characters on the texture.
