Extracting True Type Fonts from Font Suitcase files
[tweetmeme source=”neoRiley” only_single=false]If you’re using Unity on a Mac, you’ve undoubtedly had to import Fonts for use within your application. Normally, you would design in Fireworks/Photoshop first, then translated that design to Unity. After I’ve settled on what fonts I want to use, I open up Font Book and locate the fonts location on my HDD. Of course, there are plenty of fonts that are stored in a “Font Suitcase” type of container, and as you’ve seen – Unity can’t use them.
The nice thing is, there is a tool to extract (probably several tools) the TTF files stored in Font Suitcases. This particular one is called Fondu.
- Once you’ve downloaded it, extract it.
- Open terminal
- Change directory to the dir that you extracted fondu in
- type: ./configure
- type: make
- type: make install
This will install fondu and configure it to run.
To get your TTF, use terminal and type:
fondu /Users/NeoRiley\ 1/Documents/RockonFlash/iPhone/Bombs\ Away/production/fonts/Eurostile
Ding. Done. Now you have whatever TTF files you need for Unity (or whatever use you might have for them)
Have a Bandit day!
