Anyone know where I can get my hands on a repository of bitmap fonts for the GE?
blendenzo’s site has a few but i’m not sure if they are bitmaps.
Thanks JesseGP, that was exactly what I was looking for!
edit: anyone know what program opens a .TAR file?
Thanks goes to blendenzo lot of good stuff man.
That would (most likely) be the GIMP.
a .TAR or Tarball, is a staple of the linux community…
a .TAR or .TAR.GZ is a compressed file like .ZIP
to open it get a free program called 7zip
7zip opens lots of formats
Thanks pOOf, that did the trick
Dim, you don’t need to open the tarball if you use Mariano’s Blender Library script that I made those for. There’s a tutorial that will tell you how to use them. The Blender Library script will import them as pre-setup text planes, so you won’t have to do any of the setup work. I should probably post some .tga files for those who don’t care to use the Blender Library versions. Also, ST150 has a selection of .tga’s at his site.
BTW, Blender can only use .tga files generated with ftblender as in-game text. I wish I had all of the time in the world to write tutorials, because I would have written that one by now.
Edit: A lesser known fact–Python natively supports tarball compression (along with zip and gzip, I believe). That’s why Mariano used it.
