Title: Fontmaker
Post by: Koldar Mondrakken on 30 March 2002, 17:15:00
As it took me quite some time to find this link again. Here's the link to the Font-program I used for Modern Styrįsh. I cann only emphasize on using this one for Fontmaking. It is more stable and has more features than Softy and is easier to use:

For all these possible fontmakers out there! ;)

Yea, yea.  Easy for you techno wizards.  He says it took him three days of work to make a font.  I'm sure It'll take me three weeks, well we'll see lol

It's mainly about transforming your bitmaps to CV-Curves and applying it to certain Glyphs. See, it's easy! :lol

Um....this is indeed the one I used for Thergerim...

Only problem I had was that I COULDN"T name/save a new font.  I had to take an existing font and write over it.  I know that sounds incredibly stupid.....

If anyone has ANY idea how to do this correctly, please let me know.  I'd really like to rename Thergerim and JudyHand properly.... and then I could make a few more fonts!

I don't know, I think I had the problem as well but disappeared on its own. You should be able to start your own font!
Otherwise copy an existing font and use it, it is easier for implementing your own runes. Otherwise I was able to start a new font, rename it and save somewhere else... :
But as said I think there was a registration thing not working right forcing me to save everything as SymbolNewFont.

I renamed Thergrim to Santharian "standard". Arti forced me! Took me an hour to get a continuous naming for all three fonts! So everything about it should be okay. :)
