Using Custom made bitmaps in a font
« on: January 21, 2014, 01:24:02 AM »
Hi,

My artist has given me a bunch of numbers as images. I was wondering if there was a way to turn them into a font?

Not automatically, no. You could create a FNT file by hand, I suppose -- but that's about it.

P.S. However if you create an atlas, and use a bitmap font, you could add emoticons to your atlas, replacing characters such as '1', '2', etc with your sprites given by your artist.
