In Topic: Can BMFont be used as a library.

16 August 2013 - 01:31 AM

yeah, that is what i am doing now and it also works! but it would be more convenient to have it cleaner integrated into the code and have the font data directly in memory without writing to disk.

i see. 

 

well in my specific case BMFont is used as part of an SDK. the developer using this SDK can specify a font to be used with fontname, size, style. and besides preprocessing all possible combinations of these, i wanted a way to dynamically create them.


In Topic: BMFont crashes when using a custom font file in OTF format

cool thanks,

btw, did you ever consider making bmfont open source? this way others can contribute features.

 yeah the crash seems fixed. thanks a lot for that! (i have corrected the link of my otf, but its not relevant anymore.)

 

thanks for the explanation of the additional font file.

 

that brings me to a feature request:

i would like to specify a font which i have not installed, AND in addition specify another font from where missing glyphs in the first font file should be taken from.

 

for example that one font i uploaded has only the basic glyphs a-Z, 0-9,  so in order to also show cyrlilic text, it should use glyphs from Arial Unicode MS (which seems to contain almost every glyph).
