▧What is that?
Following with my personal tools releasing campaign, this time I'm publishing a tool that generates valid charset recreation for existing M&B fonts.
▧Why I should use it?
That's it, a program that makes a texture template from an existing font_data.xml, so you can create fonts without modifying the Data folder.
This may be useful for Original M&B modules.
▧How I use it?
Double click on the program, select font, if you want, select a non default charset file, and, of course, click on Generate. a font.png file will be created in your
selected destination, adjust some rebel chars, and convert it in a game DDS file.
This program was my first idea for the original Font Customiser, The guys that talked about this and me thought that was impossible.
That was the main reason for creating Iron Launcher.
One year and half after I woke again with this idea into my head. Two days of intense GDI programming, and here you have.
It doesn't throws a final font.dds image, only an easy editable PNG, that you can manually convert.
That's because it needs some little adjustments due singularities of every font.
I've gave you a "Boxed chars" option to help you to correctly situate some displaced ones.
Personally I've tried it so many times and works like a charm.
Although it does not have the same quality than a complete Texture+Data font that you may obtain with my other tool: M&B Font Customiser
