This is a description of how to create a FM-Towns font rom (FMT_FNT.ROM) from the Windows font MS Mincho.
This font rom is for use with the Kanji versions of the FM-Towns/PC98 games in ScummVM
It currently describes how to create this font rom for Windows users.
You are required to obtain the MakeFont utility from here.
You will need to:
Extract MakeFont into a suitable folder, this can be extracted using Winrar.
Start the program.
- Choose MS Mincho from the font face list.(There are others you could try, but this guide concentrates on that font face since it available in XP and Vista)
- Choose the Unz 16dot font (fmt_fnt.rom) from the font type list.
- Choose an appropriate output directory for your font rom and finally click ok.
If everything goes well then you should have a file called ‘FMT_FNT.ROM’ in your chosen directory.
This file can then be placed in your chosen game directory, or in your extrapath directory.
