How to make VW Raster Font

Recommended Posts

Hi guys! I'm working on a 2d casual game, and I need to make an assortment of variable width raster fonts for it. Normally, I just make these by hand in inkscape and export them as a series of pngs, but these guys need the full ASCII set, plus Japanese! So, is there any standard techniques / utilities that are used for doing this automatically? I'm sure this is a very common problem, and to be honest I'm a little embarrassed for not knowing how to do this. I really appreciate any help I can get on this. thanks

I'm not sure what you are looking for... are you supposed to create the font yourself or just create a bitmap version of some existing font? If it is the later one, look at Bitmap Font Generator and ImageMagick (Compound Font Effects). Writing a script that renders every glyph by calling ImageMagick command line tools should be easy.
