Hello,

I'm trying to get rpgmaker games to run correctly in wine.
(Well they do, but without sound and the font looks crappy)
So first thing to do for me is to get the fonts readable.
After hours of searching on google I've converted the the rm2000.fon file to a .bdf and a pcf file and managed to install the font for the X Server.
But i couldn't find out how to use it in wine :(
From what I've read there used to be a font mapper to allow wine to display the fonts of the X-Server... But that has been removed???
I'm confused :cry:

Can someone here please help me to get the font to work in wine?

kindest regards,

Haynes

Good news :)

I solved the Problem.
You have to add custom fonts to the following registry entry:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Fonts]
You don't even need to convert the .fon files to .dbf or .pcf files.
Just add the name of your font and the path to it as a key.

I guess this is something that should be entered into the wine wiki because i couldn't find a single line about this registry entry when i searched on google.

You ought to be able to use it just by dropping it into C:\Windows\Fonts
(as documented at one random rpg maker game's page,
http://www.anonelbe.net/hh3-rm2k/download.htm )

Does that not work?

No. That only seems to work for truetype fonts.
Bitmap fonts don't seem to be recognized by just dropping them into the C:\Windows\Fonts folder.

Can you tell me exactly what registry entries and values you used? These don't seem to work:
Code:
RM2000 8        REG_SZ        RM2000.fon
RMG2000 8        REG_SZ        RMG2000.fon

I've been searching for a solution to this problem for like an hour now, and I've been finding dead ends and unanswered questions all over. Does anyone know the status of Windows bitmap font support in Wine? And if there's a way to get RPG Maker games with included bitmap fonts (.fon) working?

Thanks for the link, dimesio. I'll keep an eye on that, hopefully someday soon that changes.
