    Hi,

    not sure where it would be the best section to post this, but I'd like to ask if someone did or might be able to create a TTF/OTF whatever font from Mario Kart 8 for example. Got an image rip from a site, but I have absolutely no idea how to get a font out of this.

    Is there someone out there who can probably help me?

    Font images are attached.

    Many thanks in advance! :)

    I never understood how font files worked in Nintendo games.

    It's a bitmap, has several images with all the characters and another section maps pixel position/size to actual ascii values. At least, that's how BFFNT works.

    So, this sounds like some hard work to create a font out of those images of I understood correctly? :/

    So you just want to make a font to use in like Windows from the MK8 fonts?

    You have the hard part done for you if you have those images. Now you don't have to recreate them by hand. Just Google how to make fonts in Windows and it'll take you like 5 mins.

    Ehh, you know there's a .bffnt dumper, right? After you convert the .bffnt into .gtx, you can then use TexHaxU to get a .dds file with the font inside, exactly as the game reads it. This can be used with any game that has .bffnt files.
