Re: My projects and demos

Sorry Pangit, didn't want to hijack your thread so I'll reply privately. No its totally fine, I find it an interesting issue also. Anyway makes the thread somewhat more lively and less like watching paint dry for people who have read this far with my endless project talk & me moaning about my proje...

Re: My projects and demos

Plan for today is learn the grafx2 program and see just how closely it is to deluxe paint.

So far, its much much faster to get screens done in grafx2. Much easier :awesome: to prototype the various parts of the program. Will have some early examples ready by tonight I think. Very positive.

Re: My projects and demos

You get weird scaling problems with ttf fonts. Like what happens when your scaler function returns a value for the font size that is not a whole value? you get unpredictable results. Or you can max/min but then you have unpredictable outcomes depending on a potential user interaction with the progra...

Re: How to change the window size?

If you want to change the size of the program window from the jump start, best to put that in the conf file. https://love2d.org/wiki/Config_Files While tempting I would avoid forcing full screen - lol I know its in your mind somewhere. But for people with unusual monitor setups it can cause a bunch ...

Re: My projects and demos

Thanks for the tips on the editors will take a look tonight. After looking at these and a few others I found on the internet I decided to survey/review the state of linux bitmapt/pixel editing software. At the moment I have BMfonts working with wine, but I have not spent enough time with it yet to s...

Re: linux bitmap font generator.

Cheers, will hit the zoom and fix it.

Lol - well that's significantly more tedious than I thought. Such a pity there are no linux tools to do this property. saving to png from inkscape is such a roll of the dice with pixel accurate stuff.

Re: linux bitmap font generator.

So the way I got round this was using inkscape then gimp to trim the final png. But what's weird is I get this strange error with one of the pixel fonts. It's like there are still parts of the yellow bars that get rendered. I don't know why. pixelfont3.png See it worked with one pixel font where all...

Re: My projects and demos

Today's update: Figured its important to nail the pixel fonts I am going to use in the project (and future projects now and get it over with.) So the plan for today is to end up with a bunch of font pngs I can use of different sizes, bold, italic, font families. Here is one of the bizarre user inter...

Re: linux bitmap font generator.

Thanks will look into this. Its to try and get the Navi library working with different font sizes. the 8 pixel one is a bit small to see on the screen.

linux bitmap font generator.

Hi, What I would like to do is make a number of different sized pixel fonts for use in love, but I am running into a problem finding a tool to create the pngs. I know there are a few windows programs to do this, but I can't seem to find any to generate bitmap fonts for use in love for linux. http://...
