So, I am adding in Fonts to my engine, and need to load some fonts. I was going to load some TrueTypeFonts, but that went ugly fast, so I want to take a simpler approach.
A simple google search of "bitmap fonts" gave me this image:
And since this is pretty easy to decode (you just loop through each row and write it to a texture), I want to start with this. But when I tried to find bitmap fonts, they were scarce, and only found on google images.
So when I did find a few downloads, they just gave me some .ttf's instead of images! I tried opening .ttf with image editors, and it was incompatible, so it is not just the extension that is different.
So where are these 'bitmap fonts,' or am I not searching hard enough?
