Hi,

I have brand new font files for the new 256-chars Version of AGS (currently in BETA state).

Hi folks!

Just a quick word of caution! The links provided here lead to a hoster which in turn provides software that includes spyware. (To clarify, I'm talking about the earlier posts that link to file-upload.net)
In fact I wasn't able to download the actual font files or archives, but just an installer of some sketchy tool that is supposed to download the actual files. So be warned!

Does anybody have a proper mirror to these font files and font tools? Or do you know where I can get my hands on AGS fonts that include german umlauts?
Thanks!

This is one of the file hosters that HIDE correct download button unless you stay on page for some time, or move mouse around.
I found that you can still download the correct file if you:

1. Move your mouse over words "Tipp: Partnerprogramm - Geld verdienen!" (under "Datum: xxx Download: xxx").
A "Download" button will appear.
2. Click on download button that appears.
3. CLOSE THE NEW WINDOW that appears.
4. Click on same download button again.

Now you can finally download 7z archive with fonts.

Here I uploaded it to dropbox:  https://www.dropbox.com/s/ukjt9o3fvbwhnvz/AGSFNT1-1_256chars.7z?dl=0

PLEASE NOTE :
- I've slightly corrected Rulaman's fonts (for example character œ ).
- I've numbered them "version 1.0"
- AGS has 3 fonts : the 2 dialog fonts (the "plain" one and the outlined one), plus one font for "Display" and GUI Controls. Rulaman provided the 2 dialog fonts. I've added the "Display" font to the package.
- With this package, you have the 3 standard AGS fonts, made 256-characters ready: AGSFNT0.WFN, AGSFNT1.WFN,AGSFNT2.WFN

>> DOWNLOAD <<
AGSFNT0.WFN, AGSFNT1.WFN, AGSFNT2.WFN

@Crimson Wizard, two things :
1. I suggest this is updated in the next release. Then AGS will at last be fully 256 international! :)
2. I strongly suggest that the default "Display" font gets 4 or 5 pixels added vertically. . That would make accented characters much easier. It would need 1 or 2 pixels below for characters like 'ç', and 2 or 3 pixels above for characters like Ê. At the moment it's possible to draw such characters in the current 9-pixels-high font, but it forces to crush some characters vertically. That's not very nice. It will make the font use more space vertically, but I don't think it would change much, as the height of lines is calculated dynamically in textboxes GUI controls.

@everyone else : I suggest someone mirror the download.

I also suggest that AGS embeds a few more 256-characters fonts. Scavenger's ones are a great start (if he agrees). There is also this page. That's always been the weakness of AGS: it comes with a poor font and beginners find it difficult to use a custom one -- which makes many games look the same.

I'd be totally happy making more 256 character fonts. I have a few more I can expand, mostly from old computer bioses and bitmap fonts.

I  have this font that JimReed made and I expanded to 256 characters, it's the one we are most probably going to use on the new Sierra Template:

Nice!
Good to know, that AGS will have 256er fonts in the future.
