No epistemological interest, I see.

I'd really like to use that WILCO font for a game I'm working on. Does anyone have the Font Resource I could add to my game's resources?

I attached Wilco Serif.fon back on page 1.

I downloaded it a couple times but have not had any success installing it on my computer or opening it with companion.

Really? I just downloaded that specific file, opened SCI Companion, File > Open Patch File... and there it is.

Of course, installing it as a font on Windows or Linux or whathaveyou would be doomed to fail since this is an SCI font resource ;)

And in my stash, in the fonts folder, is a version that's reordered to match Win-1252 that I just whipped up, but doesn't have all the characters yet.

Gotcha. It works just fine. Thanks for the walk-through. I was going about it in the wrong direction!

Thanks again.

I was trying to install it to Windows then use the companion feature to draw an approximation. Obviously that was the wrong way to go

Because obviously a .fon file is always a Windows bitmap font, like the old MS Sans Serif. No way it could be the very format the game it's from uses.</sarcasm>

I'm reminded of Sega Genesis/Mega Drive roms usually being .bin files. So helpful and handy.

True, but at least .fon for font files makes some sense, even if you can't tell Windows and SCI fonts apart. Genesis .bin files have no excuse.

(similar issue: .grp files, Program Manager and the Build engine)

But Build engine files would not be in the Windows directory where the Program Manager .grp files were. It has been awhile, but wasn't there also a Program Manager ini file that listed all of the groups?

Yeah, Genesis BIN files made no sense to me. Everything else had an easily identifiable extension, but....bin? Someone truly unimaginative implemented that. Probably a programmer. :P
