Recently I was playing around with an LED Matrix and a PIC microcontroller. I wanted to scroll some text across the matrix, but I ran into a problem when it came time to pick a font. The problem was.. well.. I couldn’t find a font to use with the matrix anywhere.
The next best thing I tried was finding a font creator…(which I did)… however, the font generator that I did find didn’t quite cut it for me. There was too much copy, paste, and editing I had to do in order to get it to work properly with the programming language I was using.
My final solution was to make my own font creator application and make it a lot more versatile than the ones I had found.
Thus, Byte-Font Creator was born. (Includes Mac and Windows Versions)
