Font Studio 4.1 is here!
Font Studio is my completely free bitmap font generator for use in OpenGL/DirectX/XNA applications. It generates bitmaps from windows fonts, and applies special effects such as a drop shadow, colouring and kerning (space between characters). It provides support for any range of unicode characters you'd want and can output to any sort of file you want via a robust plugin interface.

Developed using Delphi 2006Developed using Delphi 2006.

Unfortunately, version 4.0+ does not come with source code. You may however, download version 3.0's source code here:

If you want to develop your own plugins, you may download some examples of the plugin API here:
