Font editor.

Post by christos »

I am looking for a font editor that can handle fnt files and especially allow me to convert bitmap or vector fonts to fnt. Is there such a thing? Either for ST or PC?

Fontz by ST Club (NeoConcept was the programming team .. I think).

I used to use it a lot back in the old days.
My main site: http://www.mug-uk.co.uk - slowly digging up the bits from my past (and re-working a few): Atari ST, Sega 8-bit (game hacks) and NDS (Music ripping guide).

I develop a free Word (for Windows) add-in that's available for Word 2007 upwards. It's a fix-it toolbox that will allow power Word users to fix document errors. You can find it at: http://www.mikestoolbox.co.uk

My main PC with my C:\ST folder is still in bits (since before Xmas - just been too lazy to put it all back together again).

Meanwhile, I'd go and see if Climatic's FTP thingummy is back online or Marcer's FTP site as I can't see it being on AtariSince1989's legit FTP :)

If I kept my original of it, I'll get a disk image of it sorted out.

Almost 8 months later and I think I've found something useful if you still need it Christos?

Fontkit Plus v3.3 plus a load of extra fonts.

I got fed up waiting for my MegaSTE to unpack the three .TOS files, so here's a ZIP of the whole lot *but* the main program still needs to be unpacked (self-extracting .TOS file).

I don't think I said thanks for this. I'll see if I can make use of it for sure. Even six years later..

Here you go. I only ever used the A1 & A2 bitmap fonts in my GFA code, but there are more than enough additional features for other stuff in this application.
