Found this sucker just a few days ago and though I'd share. Lets you make a sprite sheet out of fonts.

Best of all, it you set it to the Nehe Two Font Texture (and cut it properly with Construct's import feature, making sure to mask the background). The first frame all the way to 95 will match perfectly with lucid's bitmap font (Just delete 96 onward). All you'll have to do from there is set the characters spacing to a negative number, and you have a perfectly usable sprite font

Hey
Thank you for sharing such a nice application with us. It makes easy to create bitmaps for use in OpenGL and DirectX applications.
