Russian bitmap fonts
« on: August 12, 2007, 03:53:11 PM »

Hi,
    I have a true type font for my conversations that she the translated string file in russian. All well and good but my scene font is a bitmap font, can I use the same ttf font for this?

or do I need to use bitmap, at the moment I get ??????? (question marks) instead of text.

If I have to use bitmap fonts does anyone have a russian one??

Many thanks

Yes you can, bitmap and truetype fonts are interchangeable. You can use either anywhere (only using truetype for the system font is not recommended).

Ah that is what I thought, but when I change lets say the main menu definition file to read from times roman (open type) true type font it does not display any characters.

I am using the same options menu as the demo and still get ???????? (question marks) instead of text.

I am using a bitmap font for system font and time roman.ttf for all other text.

Have you had this happen to you?

Make sure your TrueType font supports Cyrillic (not every TT font supports every character set). In the .font definition file change CHARSET to 10.

Yes I have done that, The times roman font I am using is base windows, this supports Russian etc via unicode. I am using this font specifically because all windows has this base font.

I get russian text for all conversations using the truetype font but any scene text that is set in scene.edit I get ???? (question marks) and any text on the main menu, load, save etc I get ????? too.

I have changed all window definition files but still get ???? question marks.

And are you 100% sure the windows and the caption window are using the same font as conversations? If it works at one place, it must work everywhere.

Yes that is what I thought, I now have scene text and conversation text but no text on my options window, load, save, quit windows.

Load.window

WINDOW
{
blah blah
FONT = "fonts\truetype.font"   (this is the definition wintermute font file that is directed to TIMES font)
blah
bla

ok got 99% done now, was an issue when changing to Times as this put some text off of the window and could not be seen. Also the string file from my publishers had some format errors on the tag lines. This cause ????? question marks to be shown.

The only issue I have now is the first lines in the string file that shows the text on the WME game options screen - Initial screen when running the game to choose Antialiasing etc. Using the CZECH string file this shows fine but in russian this is not and shows ?????? (question marks) is this because of the code page you mentioned??

Both script files are in TIMES ROMAN.


Other than this it is working OK.
Any ideas?

Cheers .  ::beer

It's possible actually, it uses Windows system font. It should look ok in Russian windows.
