C64 Character Set to TrueType Converter ======================================= C64TTF.py is a script for converting partial C64 memory dumps, in the form of 64c-files, into TrueType font files for use on modern operating systems. History ------- 1.0 (2013-11-27) Uploaded initial version to GitHub 1.1 (2014-03-25) Fixed the MacRoman CMAP table. Added Danish characters. 1.2 (2016-10-18) Fixed glyph order. Removed Numpy dependency. 1.3 (2020-05-16) Ported to Python 3. Requirements ------------ Python 3 FontTools/TTX (use pip3 for this) Syntax ------ usage: c64ttf.py [-h] [-l LOWERCASE] [-u UPPERCASE] [-o OUTPUT] [-x] [-m] [-i] [-p PIXELSIZE] [-d DESCENT] [-a] [-n NAME] [-y COPYRIGHTYEAR] [-c CREATOR] [-v VERSION] c64ttf.py v1.3 - C64 Character Set to TrueType Converter (c) 2013-20 atbrask optional arguments: -h, --help show this help message and exit -l LOWERCASE, --lowercase LOWERCASE Input 64C file with lowercase and uppercase characters. -u UPPERCASE, --uppercase UPPERCASE Input 64C file with uppercase and graphics characters. -o OUTPUT, --output OUTPUT Output filename (default is font name + '.TTF' or '.TTX') -x, --xml Enable XML output (for debugging purposes) -m, --add-missing-ascii Add non-PETSCII characters for ASCII compatibility (ie. grave accent, curly braces, vertical bar, tilde, caret, backslash, and underscore) -i, --add-missing-danish Add special Danish characters. Needed for proper compatibility with the Danish version of MAC OSX. -p PIXELSIZE, --pixelsize PIXELSIZE Pixel size in the resulting TTF file (default is 256) -d DESCENT, --descent DESCENT The descent below baseline in pixels (default is 1) -a, --add-all Inserts the uppercase character set (if any) at 0xEE00...0xEEFF and the lowercase character set (if any) at 0xEF00...0xEFFF -n NAME, --name NAME Font name -y COPYRIGHTYEAR, --copyrightyear COPYRIGHTYEAR Sets copyright year -c CREATOR, --creator CREATOR Font creator -v VERSION, --version VERSION Sets font version number NOTE: Both -l and -u are listed as "optional arguments", but obviously at least one of them has to be specified. Example ------- Usable files can be found in the "Character Sets"-section at this page (which is not mine by the way): http://kofler.dot.at/c64/ Given the input files c64_lower.64c and c64_upper.64c: ./c64ttf.py -l c64_lower.64c -u c64_upper.64c -o c64.ttf -m -a \ -n "Commodore 64" -y 1982 -c Commodore -v "1.00" This will create a font called "Commodore 64" with all lowercase, uppercase, and graphics characters included. Additionally, the missing ASCII characters are included as well.
