Using Sprite Font

Get help using Construct 2

Post » Tue Jul 09, 2013 7:09 pm

Hi all,

I've only just started to learn about sprite font, and noticed that we now have an official plugin.

But I'm not sure how to use it, or how I can make a font sprite sheet? Are there any tutorials or good threads that show how this is done. I have searched, but I've been unable to find anything useful yet!

Thanks.

Really? An answer like that is not going to encourage a beginner to learn. If you do not want to actually help someone, don't bother posting at all.

Thanks @Whiteclaws, the wonders of modern technology huh!

Thanks for the support @yogert96, it can be difficult when you're still new to all of this. I think sometimes it's easy for others to forget what it was like when they first started! Pantaloons2013-07-09 19:56:13

No problem. All Whiteclaws has to do is search the forums on "how to make an mmo" and he can be reminded. Anyway, there is a manual entry on sprite fonts that I believe deserves a good look. Here it is:

I wrote a tool to help generate the sprite fonts. There are others.

@yogert69

To be honest , checking the manual or searching the forums wouldn't be that hard , I guess , atleast , at those days , I would search the forums before asking any questions

You see , a lot of the newbies don't even bother searching and ask questions already answered and I can't encourage that :S

Thanks @yogert96, @blackhornet, both very useful links, I'll check them out :)

@Whiteclaws, as mentioned above, I did already do a forum search, but couldn't find what I was looking for. I had seen the manual entry on Sprite Font, but it doesn't go into much detail on how to make a font sheet, hence my question! But thanks for your input anyway, it made me chuckle ;)

@Whiteclaws

I see your point, but there is a better way of approaching things. So if you don't want to encourage it, just don't respond to their posts, and eventually, they will try to do something by themselves.
