Fonts use a custom vectored format that needs to be converted from to be usable.
Conversion & Usage¶
Simply run the tool as such:
<your_ttf_font>should be replaced by the path to your TTF font
<output_vec_font>should be a path for the output
.vecfont, created by the tool.
After that, drop the newly created font to
font/vec/ and edit each
fontset_*.txt file to add the following entries before
MyFontis the name of the font and how it can be accessed from Adhoc or MProjects, while
MyFontFileis the actual file name for the font.
It is recommended to edit the font before-hand to remove characters that you are unlikely to use - all fonts registered in
fontset_<region>.txt are loaded at boot and will persist therefore taking up memory.
FontForge can be used to do so.
