I've read all the tutorial and manual about sprite fonts. It's a neat feature, but one question: do we have a tool to convert regular font directly into sprite font format that C2 understands? I see that it's just a texture with all the letters and such, but to work faster, I would prefer a tool.

it's just a PNG, you can use Photoshop to create fancy text.

Hi @keroberos,

There are lots of sprite font creation tools out there (just do a google search and you'll see what I mean).

I've seen a few examples on the forum see here and also here.

I hope that helps :)

Correct me if I'm wrong. If all the characters of the font have the same space, like Courier font, then this shouldn't be any trouble, but for fonts with characters with different spacing, adjusting the spaces around could be a pain.

yes, as of now it's a big pita, but there's a tool already included to fix it.
