We're still talking past each other it seems, but it's entirely my fault, sorry
import ttf fonts, and "bitmap" was the wrong word; what I wanted to say is that a single
font file cannot contain the actual characters and
dbuske had the automatic outline option turned off and didn't realize that the black outlines he saw in other games are generated by AGS, so he was looking for a different type of font instead of the outline option.
Regarding the Cassanet font, it looks like the outline version is meant to be used instead of the normal version, not as outline to it.
