Advice Creating Bitmap fonts from Photoshop or other graphics editor

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone. I wanted to see if there was a good tool for creating bitmap fonts for games that is similar to Shoebox.

One that can get an image created in Photoshop or Illustrator of a custom stylized font character set and create a sprite based bitmap font. I've used Shoebox for a long time, but it hasn't been updated for a few years and it's made in Adobe Air. Is there a more modern and better alternative that doesn't rely on Adobe Air?

I've seen other tools that takes windows true type fonts and let's you create limited styling on them, but that's not what I'm looking for.

Any help would be appreciated.
