Could someone post a link to the original Font.pc and a link to the original tga image because I lost both of them due to experiments with the leikkuri program.
It fails to display my font and I am pretty sure it is caused by NGcenter.. What should I do?

EDIT:

Visuals for those that do not understand my problem..:

Help :D

EDIT2:

I used the fontedit program to save the tga from the font.pc inside my graphics wads.
Guess what came out:

I have come to believe that this is not normal. Am I doing something wrong?

I also use Vista and I think that the administrator account and the standard account interfere with each other causing to have the right files on one account and the wrong files on the other. I have no way how I can fix this.. because what ever I do. the wrong files are always used, it is as if the old files are used always and the old files don't get renewed in the vista standard account because I am the administrator and I use that account and the files renew here. but I don't understand why the files on the standard account don't renew, and why does my vista constantly ask me for permission if I am administrator, does any one else find this annoying? I officially am really disturbed by Windows Vista ever since I discovered that 70% is old because of this account bug.. :S
Most likely my fonts are invisable because in the standard account there is no font.pc.. :S can you believe this :!!! ok I need to calm down for a sec.. Give me a moment please..

NGcenter? That comes with the new TRNG, doesn't it?
Is that even properly compatible with Leikkuri? Since that program is also TREP related as far as I know... ;)

Yes it is compatible Titak I use TRNG + the NGcenter and have had no problems when changing the font using Leikkuri, but I have Windows XP. :)

There it is again:D XP instead of Vista.. :D
I'd appreciate it if someone with a working xp computer would patch an trle.exe with the font in the link below (not patched by TREP)
The font.pc is already in the download which I have and I would appreciate it if someone would do me this favour.
Kind regards.

Whoohoo! I've been thinking of giving TRNG a try and converting my current project to work with TRNG. And I was wondering about the font since I have already made a nice font for this levelset. :D

IF you already have got it to work, then there is no problem.
I don't think TRNG is relating to font problems.. but I could be wrong.. testing now, be back soon with results.

EDIT*=

Well I have tested the results on vista and as you can see below it is no matter.. they are invisable even when I use the normal tom converter.

I really dislike the fact that it does not work right away:D

Alright, I have contacted the author of the actual Font (piega) And he helped me by patching the TR4.exe on his computer.
I already had the font so this worked perfectly well.
Due to this success it is safe to say that Leikkuri is not Vista compatible because it does work when it has been patched on XP.

Kind regards;)

(PS. for anyone that has this problem on Vista too, try asking someone with xp to patch a nonTREP patched exe file with the font you want)

What procedures did you follow in order to get your font to work??
Perhaps we are overlooking something..
I made a custom font in Photoshop just by typing abc..... etc.
Then I made a couple of layers like in geckokid's tut.
I removed the purple dots that were inaccurately filled and I used 255 red and 255 blue only to get magenta.
After this procedure I converted the bmp into tga for the fontedit program and I kept one in bmp for Leikkuri. I used both programs et voila invisible font :D
So therefore I chose to use a font which has been made by Piega. (Even with the files that are downloadable I still got an invisable font so I had to request him to patch the TR4.exe for me. Only after he did and sent me it worked like it should have worked in the first place:D
I have reasons to suspect that leikkuri is not vista compatible. I could be wrong, but from what I experienced.. I think it is not.
