Flixel Power Tools FlxBitmapFont

Back to the Flixel Power Tools

Released in version 1.0

Allows you to use bitmap fonts in your games very easily. It’s extremely fast. Fast-enough for real-time updates, or a GUI or HUD display.

The rendered text is just a normal FlxSprite, so you can do with it whatever you like, such as scaling, alpha, rotation, even collision.

There are extensive character-set handling options and it’s fully documented.

    Do you suggest any bmp font creation tools?

    Mostly they are hand-drawn in pixel editors, but there are several good TTF to Bitmap font utilities out there (Google will give you what you need) and then you can edit them in something like Photoshop to pimp them out.
