Details of .SCI format
« on: 03 Nov 2019, 20:35 »
Hello,

I noticed that these forums have a post that explain the details of the WFN font format, but I couldn't find anything about SCI fonts.  Someone mentioned that SCI was similar to WFN, but I was hoping for some more detail, as I am trying to build a small editor type thing. I know some editors for these font types already exist, but I am looking to make my own online editor.

Thanks for your help

Perhaps you may find it somewhere in the web resources dedicated to classic Sierra adventures. For instance there this website: http://sciwiki.sierrahelp.com//index.php?title=Main_Page

If it's not found there, you may try open source code, such as ScummVM: https://github.com/scummvm/scummvm/tree/master/engines/sci
Or even code of the AGS editor, where it imports SCI fonts (warning: old dirty code): https://github.com/adventuregamestudio/ags/blob/ags3/Editor/AGS.Native/agsnative.cpp#L908
