Well, whenever I use the "Spideys Doom Font Program" It never exports the .lmp file.

See the example pwad for the BIGFONT.

For SMALLFONT there is quite a bit more work involved, since each character is a separate image.
What one could do is, use the png image created by BHS's Font Generator and cut out each character
and name it according to STCFNxx. And also recolour it if needed.

Actually Kappes, bitmap font files can be used for the standard smallfont - just rename the lump SMALLFNT.
