Font Builder Application Icon
Windows PC

Font Builder is a tool that lets you create bitmap fonts from existing TrueType or OpenType fonts installed in your Windows operating system. These bitmap fonts can then be used to render text in your games or applications. All fonts are exported to an RGBA (32 bpp) PNG image file in addition to an XML file that specifies the coordiantes of each glyph in the PNG file. The glyphs are coloured white with an alpha channel. This allows you to easily tint the glyphs to any colour using 3D rendering APIs such as OpenGL or Direct3D.

The tool requires .NET 4.0 to run.
