Changing the color of a bitmap font

  • #1, by ygmantellTuesday, 01. September 2015, 18:55 5 years ago
    Can you change the color of a bitmap font inside Visionaire, or do I have to do it in photoshop and import it. I was hoping I could just copy the default one I made and then just change the color so I could use the same font in different colors for different characters.
    Thanks

    sorry, this is not possible for bitmap fonts. You have to import the colored files separately

    No, it's possible, create one font with the white bitmap, create another font linking to it and change the color.

    How exactly. I couldnt find any option to do so. I messed with the color options in the TTF font options, but that did not do anything.

    Create a font with your bitmap.
    Create another font, choose the bitmap font at ttf "font", change the color at ttf.
    Use the another font your character.

    Yeah, that's not updated, it is a very new feature.

    Cool! Thanks! So I can remove 70 % of my input bitmap fonts...
    An other hidden and very useful feature!

    PS: Activating ttf-font for changing the bitmap color is not intuitive...
