Title: Custom or modify fonts?
Post by: iPodFoo on August 29, 2006, 03:13:46 PM
Hi.

id like to be able to create my own fonts or at least edit the ones that come with rockbox. Ive tried opening them in Raster Font Editor (http://www.softpedia.com/progDownload/Raster-Font-Editor-Download-28934.html), but it gives an error when trying to open them, such as:

Cannot load font:
File is an invalid Font file or a un-supported font version.

Are they a special format? If so how can one create/edit them?

Cheers.

The fonts you download from the Rockbox download page are in a special Rockbox format. The source for them are regular BDF fonts though.

See http://www.rockbox.org/twiki/bin/view/Main/CreateFonts for more information about fonts and how to create them.
