Bitmap Font Builder

What is Bitmap Font Builder?

Bitmap Font Builder is an application that makes it easy to create bitmaps for use in OpenGL and DirectX applications.


  • Saves font texture in 8-bit TGA, 24-bit TGA, 32-bit TGA, RAW or BMP format
  • Automatic font sizing
  • Automatic texture sizing – pick your font sizes and the texture will automatically be resized to fit that font.
  • Character justification settings
  • Grid color adjust
  • Option to save character widths to binary or INI file
  • Option to save character ABC Widths to binary file
  • Copy texture image to Windows’ clipboard

What does Bitmap Font Builder NOT do?

Bitmap Font Builder DOES NOT allow you to edit Windows TrueType fonts. Check out High-Logic’s Font Creator if that’s what you’re trying to do.

While you’re there, tell them Thom Wetzel sent you — maybe they’ll send me a free copy one of these days for sending them all this freaking traffic *hint* *hint* High-logic! I want to thank Erwin at High-Logic for hooking me up with free licenses for his FontCreator and MainType products. Thanks Erwin! :)

Enjoy the program!
