Here's the files I need you to look at, Deep Thought.

Saw your PM, anything I can do, or is it definitely just Paint?

Thanks, Deep Thought!  It turns out I was just saving in a location different from what I "thought" (no pun intended), so I was looking at and compiling the wrong file the whole time.

Oh, okay, that's great then :D Any suggestions, just ask. It's a nice way for me to learn more advanced stuff.

Hey, Nemo, do you have the source code for the GUI version of the font compiler?  I have a couple of changes I need to make

Hot_Dog, this isn't too important, but when you're done changing it can I have a copy of the final bmp28xp.java (source)? Just want to know how things should work :)

Sure thing.  There's an issue with checksum that I have to fix, and then I'll PM you when it's up.

Hmm, the checksum doesn't work? Was that a problem in the original version?

I'm pretty sure it existed in the original.  But this would be my fault, because I gave you the wrong byte to start counting at.  Anyways, this is something I'm looking into.

Okay, so i found the problem.  A byte can only go from -127 to 128, so sometimes java was adding negative numbers in checksum.  So I added 256 after every negative number.

Here's the new code.  Nemo, I also put up the new fontcompile.java, so if you could package it into a jar that would be helpful.

Deep Thought, here's some changes I added:

* Fonts must be at least 2 pixels wide / 2 pixels high
* After the 8 character program name, the data should be "0" instead of "1"
* Like I said before, you will need "CORE" before the width/height of the font characters

Ohh, I never thought of that, whoops.
