BYO fonts for the Open Source Jukebox Firmware.
I'm happy with how it is now. Feel free to edit and make adjustments to the style as content now. If you wish. want to tidy up bits that are unnecessary, feel free.
Current Latest Version: 1.1 1.2 (Release)
This version is currently only available with the lite edition. New users please download the full package first, then get the lite edition (Which is a newer version)
This is for users who have already downloaded a previous version. The "lite" edition is likely to be updated more often (And faster) than the normal downloads.
To use the Lite edition, you simply replace the previous version's makefont.bat and use it as normal.

After reading the thread about converting fonts in this post, I decided to code a batch file to do the work for me. This is the result, the Rockbox font convertor. It ain't in any way pretty, as it's all in command prompt, but it does the job and does it well and pretty damn fast, too.

Open a command prompt window to the font convertor folder (Drag and drop doesn't work properly) and type:

One point i have to make is that setting 8pt is not necessarily making a font that is 8px high. Different fonts have different sizes in their pt size. Have a fiddle with sizing and see what works best.
Also, if anyone downloads this and have any luck/problems please post! I'd love some constructive criticism!
I'm lazy so this was mostly copied verbatim from the Rockbox forum post, which was copied from the original MisticRiver post. Things may have been lost or cleaned up in the translation from VBulletin > Simple Machines > TWiki, however i believe it has been cleaned up pretty well...
This isn't officially supported by any of the rockbox devs (Though i'm sure thy can help). If you need help, PM or email me. I'm sorry it's Windows only - i know 70% of the rockbox community are probably Linux or Mac Os users, but that's what i run and what I'm moderately OK at.
A more technical discussion of the project can be found on the Rockbox forums, Here
Please keep discussion to the forum posts linked above. That way i'll be notified and can help you out.
