Doom Font Genesis - Viewer and Generator for Doom Fonts

Postby ErmacMKIII » Fri Feb 15, 2019 9:10 am

Q: What is it?
A: Program for both viewing and generating Byte Map Fonts (abbr. BMF) and Lump Fonts (extension is .LMP).
It's intended for the newest generations of Doom ports including ZDoom, GZDoom and Zandronum. Works in pair with SLADE.

A: Which version is actual?
Q: Actual version is Doom Font Genesis V1.7.2 - TITANIUM.

Q: Which modes program has?
A: It has viewing mode without editing and creator mode for creating font
using some installed font on the OS as a base.

Q: Alright, can you give me some help and tips about it?
A: Help is not too much verbose but gives some information. Check program Help.
The main tip is that only small subset of fonts can by synthesized
and even smaller subset will look good in the game.

Q: What programming language was used to made this?
A: Program is written in Java 1.8.

Q: Is program open or closed source?
A: I decided to make it open-source for the benefits and good for all of us.

This looks very useful. Can it create fonts from Windows fonts? And how does this look like?

It can, you choose any of the installed fonts in the Font section as I chose Copper Plate Gothic Bold / Gothic 821 Cn Bt / Courier New in the video. Gothic 821 Cn Bt doesn't exist by default in Windows, it needs to be installed manually.

If you want that font, Gothic 821 Cn Bt look at this website, very carefully http://www.nma-fallout.com/resources/th ... densed.12/
