This zip contains tilesets converted to 12pt monospaced fonts for playing Dwarf Fortress over telnet/ssh.

All but ~20 tilesets from the wiki have been converted. That means you have 88 fonts to choose from when playing over telnet/ssh (had to remove the list here so if you need to see what a tileset looks like head on over to the wiki page for tilesets).
If there is one that isn't included on the wiki or currently in the zip let me know via comment (with a link to the tileset) and I'll get it converted.

What did you use to convert these? I've got my own custom tileset I'd love to give the TTF treatment to and use for SSH/terminal play.

I used FontCreator and an AHK script to convert them. The AHK script was mostly to speed things up, as the more complicated tilesets could easily take a few hours to do by hand, while with the script it only takes ~30 minutes for a 10x10 with shading. If you want I can convert it for you, just upload it to an image host that doesn't convert it (I use TinyPic).

I don't know if you're still around, but if you could convert ironhand's tileset @ I would really appreciate it!

Phoebus or Ironhand as tilesets would be really awesome! Is there any tutorial on how to convert images to fonts? The only thing I found was the df2ttf, and I have no idea how to use it.

can you do this one?


It's tocky with some stuff from Vherid in there (stuff that looked better than tocky).

i'd love to get that ahk script. I tried using df2ttf, but the ttf's come out blocky looking and don't look as good as yours.

thanks for the quick reponse... but I made do with resizing df2ttf's with fontforge, wasn't easy, but wasn't too hard. So far it's working for a specific font size within putty, but the problem is keenard's df2ttf using a smaller scale (maybe?) that doesn't allow for nice resizing since putty doesn't use decimal places for resizing. At least that's his explanation.

The Curses 10x12 font seems to have a corrupted zero, but is otherwise exactly what I wanted.
