New font with major CJK-support (Source Han Sans)

(1/2) > >>

illegalval:
Hi everyone,
I've played around a bit with converting the open source Source Han Sans | 思源黑体 | 思源黑體 | 思源黑體 香港 | 源ノ角ゴシック | 본고딕  (a set of OpenType Pan-CJK fonts) to .fnt files with success! I'm still experimenting with the different options that the font converter provides, but the converter is reporting no errors and working perfectly on my Shanling Q1 - I like this font quite a bit more than other fonts with CJK support.

License-wise, it seems fine to redistribute and modify the font(s) non-commercially. Here is a page including a more digestable FAQ of the license in question: https://scripts.sil.org/cms/scripts/page.php?site_id=nrsi&id=OFL

If anybody is interested, I'd be glad to share my converted files. File sizes are about 8mb and include exactly 42222 glyphs.

PS - I hope i'm not posting anything that actually isn't new, but I didn't find anything about this particular font in the forums or the wiki, so....

A FYI, the SIL OFL license is not just "fine to redistribute/use non-commercially" -- it's free to use for any/all reasons, commercial or not.

If you'd like to submit these for inclusion into rockbox, I don't see any reason why they wouldn't be acceptable

illegalval:
Yes i figured! :)

I would love to submit it for inclusion - how many sizes would good/necessary? I've made some with size 15 (small for this font), 17 and 20. There are several types: light, medium, normal, bold. How do i submit them?

This page will give you an idea of the existing CJK fonts we have and in what sizes:

 As for styles, I'd have to imagine that due to the small sizes we're using, medium or light would be the best bet.  Whichever one is clearer.

The best way to submit stuff is through our Gerrit instance; see here for details:

illegalval:
Thank you! Alright, I'll probably submit sizes 9, 12 and 15 (could do 20 too), medium, light, normal and extra light.

I'll have to look into Gerrit, I'm not very comfortable with git, I'll get back to it in this thread when i've got things figured out. Thanks!!
