In-Depth Information
The guys at www.71squared.com released the Hiero replacement tool called Glyph
Designer. Although it's not free, it's definitely worth every cent.
You can download a trial version at http://glyphdesigner.71squared.com ,
and if you're already familiar with Hiero, you'll notice a striking similarity in features,
although the user interface is a lot easier to use and encourages experimentation. Mike
Daley also mentioned in an episode of the Cocos2D Podcast (available at ht-
tp://cocos2dpodcast.wordpress.com ) that Glyph Designer will get a new
feature that allows you to share font designs with other users of the tool.
Figure 4-7 shows Glypgh Designer in action. The process of creating a bitmap font is
relatively playful, and it doesn't hurt to change the various knobs, buttons, and colors
as you please. I outline just the basic editing areas for you.
