Hi all, EXFONT is this:
EXFONT is a 2 color bitmap used for 52 12x12px glyphs (13 cols, 4 rows, 153x48px total) used for some symbols in RPG Maker 2000/2003. This file is inside RPG_RT.exe and it’s non-free.
Any volunteer to make a free replacement?
Some time ago I made several images for the EXFONT file I use in El Maestro de la Oscuridad 2. I changed completely the original EXFONT file, but the majority of these images are from other games and possibly should not be used for purposes of making an official EXFONT file for EasyRPG. These are the images which I made from scratch and which I’d pleased to share with you ^^
-> Health Points (Puntos de Salud) (It could be quickly converted into a HP image).
-> Magic Points (Puntos de Magia) (Even more easy to convert, inverting letters).
-> Experience Points (Puntos de Experiencia) (Quit E and center the resulting image).
-> [b]Level /b (Change N for L)
-> Money (Dinero) (A small image which supposedly represents some gold pieces and a pile notes)
-> Package (Paquete) (Image which represents those objects which can not be filled in other categories; rare objects [taken from Final Fantasy XII, drops form enemies])
-> Health Magic (Magia de Salud) -> In my game, all kind of magic are represented with a circle containing the kind of magic, but there are several symbols taken from other games.
-> Upgrading Attributes Magic (Magia para aumentar atributos)
-> Downgrading Attributes Magic (Magia para disminuir atributos)
-> Summoning Monster Magic (Magia de Invocación de Monstruos)
I hope these images are useful for you. If I have time I’ll remake the images which can be easy converted into English images.
Sir Dark. Remember EasyRPG will be released on MultiLanguage, so EXFONT should be on english (PS, PM, NV, are not qualified), and should be posible to switch the file acording to language (easyrpg shall have all of them) but meanwhile we need an english EXFONT
Hi Gazille ^^
Well, as I said before, I’d remake the images to English if I had time, and well… I had time. xD
These are the English replacements:
And also, I took a image from RPG Maker menu using these EXFONT icons and money icon to see them in game:
Thank you SirDark! As you said, your glyphs are good for customized games and official EXFONT as you said should be same symbol and only changing the design. The example shown is very good for explanation and documentation about usage.
Well in my opinion is better to leave them as that… they are 12x12 pixel sprites each, and look very similar to the Japanese fonts where they probably came from.
Leave them there if anyone wants to use them… but at least offer a better way to use special font icons. Like using a file similar to exfont but with space for more characters or colors. Or simply use icons as XP/VX or both.
chaleeman, the problem is emulate as is the RPG_RT based games already done but we can’t include a literal (verbatim) copy of exfont because it’s a license problem. So we need an alternative version of same glyphs with slight different design. For example, stilized sword with different pixel position, different shield curvature with small variations in central cross, etc.
there you go… I modified the ones that didn’t looked like a font standard
Hey filosofiamanga, thank you very much! Now your version is replacing the old non-free EXFONT
