Okay, this is starting to come back to me. Yeah, the bigfonts have to be done by hand because I really don't have much control over the palette with this framework, so color bigfonts will look shitty with palette fixing the way it is, even if it worked (as you mentioned, Zippy, it follows the imagetool documentation which has the box color and bg color switched). I want to make a small change to imagetool where index 0 is the box color and index 1 is the bg color, that way those will be the first two colors it sees when wx quantizes the image and everything should work out. I'm going to try messing with imagetool in a disassembler, does anyone know of a good one?

Edit - wait, the documentation is right -- index 0 is transparent and index 255 is for box lines.

The documentation is not wrong, but if you use Photoshop, it gets the palettes backwards.

Well, that's awfully nice of them.

On the plus side, I will now remember this forever.

Ok, it's not perfect but it should work much better now... what do you think?

You can save bigfonts directly as lumps now :)

Bump... added frontend for more imagetool stuff, cleaned things up, documented changes to imagetool. Cutman and Zippy, the problems you guys were having should be gone now.

To everyone who commented in this thread earlier / a long time ago and I missed it, sorry about that. If there's still stuff you want to see happen with this program, now's the time to ask...

Wasn't grabpng part of DoomCRAP...?

EDIT: Works perfectly so far. Thanks for the updates, baghead. :D Too bad there's still no way to disable anti-aliasing... it's necessary for those low res, crisp small fonts.

But it's still an awesome tool. Thanks again for taking the time to code this, baghead! I've said it before and I'll say it again... this tool is still helping me enjoy real-life(tm) by making the process of creating fonts in Doom a breeze! :D

It never was before, but now that I think about it, the whole reason I started working on grabpng was to avoid having to run setpng under wine on linux... I kind of forgot about that I guess. It's included now. Link updated.

edit - about the antialiasing thing, wxLua has been updated pretty recently, I'll see if it works any better in the latest version. The option to turn off antialiasing has always been there, but it never did anything before. And thanks for the shout-out, I might have to update your quote on my tools page ;)

Doesn't work for me, I try to save the file as a lump but instead it reads "Unable to save." What have I done wrong here?

I had the same problem. The problem is that the font generator doesn't set the right color index for the background, you have to do that manually. I used paint to fill the background with cyan and then used irfanview to set palette color index 0 to 0 255 255(cyan). It can be any color for that matter, just make sure the filling color matches the palette index 0. Then you can import it to font generator and use it as a source image, or do it manually with imagetool from the command line.

Unfortunately, sir, bagheadspidey hasn't logged in to the forums since 2010, so you are quite late.
