32x32 fonts?
« on: June 12, 2013, 02:33:49 PM »
I've been wondering, are there any 32x32 square fonts out there? I've been looking through the ones that come with libtcod, and they're absolutely beautiful, especially terminal16x16_gs_ro. Are there any bigger tilesets like these?

Well the DF wiki's tileset repository has all kinds of awesome fonts in all formats, if I remember correctly there is at least one in 32x32 size, along with other unusual sizes. DF uses basically the same arrangement as most libtcod fonts, with the notable difference that the vast majority of libtcod fonts has the subpixel characters replacing some greek characters.

Hmm, I could only find one 32x32 tileset on that page. It looks very nice, though, and appears to use the same format as the one in libtcod like you said. But some of the tiles appear to be DF-specific tiles rather than fonts. I guess this isn't too bad, since most of the ones that matter are still fonts, but it still leaves me wondering if there's a tileset like that that's strictly font only. If one doesn't exist, then that one looks pretty good; thanks!

Did you try this one? It's straight CP437 with no DF tiles, as far as I can see.

Monospace fonts are good for that and if they don't have the same height than width you can still work wonders in programs like Inkscape to stretch them. You can then turn them into a bitmap.

Oh, I didn't see that one. Looking back, it seems that I ctrl+F'd "32x32" but it didn't catch "32×32" for Sir Henry's. It looks just like the one I wanted, though. Thanks!
