Are TTF / OTF fonts not a viable option? I'm not really sure about VS displaying Cyrillic, so I'm just wondering if you already tried using actual font files?
As for png font maps, they can be a little tricky to get VS to read them correctly; especially if you are using complicated looking letters or font styles. & as Sebastian said, you need to manually type in the letters into the alphabet section in the same order that they are displayed on the png font image, left to right, row by row.
In regards to actually making a png font template... it's important to use simple font styles otherwise VS will probably have a hard time calculating all the letters. Destroyed / decayed fonts are no good at all. Also you should apply a border to your fonts to make sure all parts of each letter are joined together seamlessly as sometimes VS can mistake " as 2 of these ' ', etc. It's all down to the font you decide to use. Finally at the beginning of each row you need to add one of these _ like so...
_ a b c d e f g h
_ i j k l m n o p
_ ... etc
The _underscore represents the beginning of a new row.
Anyway, hope this helps.
