Welcome

This site gathers bitmap/bytemap fonts, saved and extracted mostly from games and demoscene, drawn and pixelated by various graphicians and artists, lost and forgotten in time.

You can find hundreds of those fonts here, either as pictures or, better yet, in a file format that allows basic (macro)typography.

Feel free to browse the list, filtered either by initial letter of the font name (above right) or more specifically (via form above, left).

In closer look

A font is a set of characters. Bitmap is a map of bits (picture). A bitmap font is a set of pictures as its proprietary characters.

We can further distinguish pixelated/image fonts with just two colours (black or white, foreground or background) and fonts drawn with more than one colour. Let's call these bytemap fonts.

The fonts published here are of several origins:

  • pictures gathered by Daniel Guldkrans
  • font art from the archive of Carsten Cumbrowski
  • bytemap fonts of the 8-bit scene – mostly Commodore 64 and ZX Spectrum
  • bytemap fonts of the 16-bit scene – mostly Atari ST and Amiga
  • other fonts from various sources (old demos, intros, etc.) converted by me

Wherever I could get a grip of the name of the author, I mentioned them in the file description. A lot of these fonts are many years old, some even decades. Font that were part of some games are now so called abandonware. I'm going to assume in good faith that all bitmap fonts shown here are freeware.

If you happen to be an author of a certain font presented here that you do not wish to be available, then feel free to contact me and I will make quick amendments to remove it from this website.

Similarly, if you happen to find an error in the description of any font, please, tell me what to fix in the discussion below each font.

Thanks in advance!

What's in it for me?

Let this site be helpful to you if:

  • you are a graphic designer seeking for some cool bitmap fonts
  • you are a programmer and would like to implement the BMF file-format
  • you'd like to have a pic of your text drawn by one of the fonts

Enjoy!

2021-02-24 14:33:00 adminNumerals added by crs/broncs.
2021-02-24 03:44:16 adminNever mind, thanks for trying.
2021-02-24 01:12:55 adminAdded small chars (a-z).
Heavily inspired by some font in a screenshot I've forgotten to write down to attribute.
2021-02-23 23:26:40 adminIs the same font featured in this one?

2021-02-23 23:14:00 ZbengI did not manage to run the European Demos, unfortunately. Ripping fonts from them will have to wait..
2021-02-23 16:12:14 adminThanks, I understand now. However:
- strangely enough, for some reason there are some differences from STCNX.png, see for example "A", "K", "I"…
- recoloring STCNX from SNDEMO-GOLD isn't trivial - at least I don't know how to do it without (laborious and time-intesive) selecting insides of letters that are to be tinted to brown (while the edges of letters remain blue steel).
If you can think of an easy way (either in the editor, or working with the picture of the full charset), let me know for sure!

Font "sound-demo" deleted as duplicate. Also, I moved this conversation from there to this font, because otherwise it would be deleted along with it.
2021-02-23 15:57:09 ZbengThe picture was reformatted from what I found in the ATARI's memory after running the intro (https://demozoo.org/productions/111294/). Instead of using a font, the message was drawn as an image. You can see in the intro's snapshots how this image was scrolling on the left and right side of the screen.
2021-02-23 15:35:17 ZbengI think that the image I sent you is the same one that you used a while ago for https://bmf.php5.cz/index.php?font=sndemo-gold

It was meant in case you want to recolor it according to the few letters in https://bmf.php5.cz/index.php?font=stcnx
(recolor pixels in every letter to transform 8 color font to a 16 color font)

:-O

Otherwise, it is a duplicate of sndemo-gold, IMHO
2021-02-23 14:31:31 adminRedrawn from a picture reading "INTRO BY THE ST CONNEXION HACKED BY THE REPLICANTS". Other letters of the alphabet added and 'recycled' by crs/broncs.
