Own extended font
« on: August 25, 2016, 08:51:16 AM »

Hello! :)

I feel a strong lack of some characters. Whether there is a possibility of creation of a own font with a larger map of symbols (more then 256 chars)?

Hey there!

It's not currently possible, no, but support for larger (unlimited) numbers of characters is planned for a future release. It will definitely happen at some point, but I can't say when for sure. (It should be during or shortly after the dynamic UI overhaul, and that's a rather large project!)

You can also make font of a 1px size with just 2 characters: space and dot. Possibilities are endless then!
(that is a joke of course)  ::)

Oh I see. I will patiently wait for this update. I have begun to wait already right now! Ohhh... time runs so slowly! :)

I wish you a nice day and the inspiration of which arises from ancient Gods! (ASCII gods I think) :D
PS: thanks a lot for a awesome game and tools

This particular version is going to be quite a wait, but ah well, I can only spare so much time for a free project these days xD. I know a good number of users look forward to that feature in particular, so I'm eager to implement it, though my insistence on doing things as efficiently as possible means I don't want to hack it together--gotta get it done nicely and right the first time!

And hey gumix, not doing any cool ASCII art lately? :)

No programming, no painting, trying to limit thinking too.
First week was really hard, but now I started to like it.
Ok, getting back to my statis  ;) cheers.
