  1. Here’s a script I wrote last year for creating font image files for both Chameleon’s and Clover’s GUI. Notes - Clover works best with monospaced fonts, where as Chameleon can use both monospaced and proportionally spaced fonts. - Both monospaced and proportional fonts can be used (for Clover, r3216 and up is required). - While this script does it’s stuff mathematically, sometimes the best results (optically) may only be achieved when making/adjusting the font files manually. Requirements ImageMagick Installing can be done using homebrew Once Homebrew is installed, you can run the following command from the Terminal: brew install imagemagick * Note: There are other ways to install ImageMagick but I've found only Homebrew does it simply with all required delegates. If you choose to install ImageMagick using other means (package installers, compile from source) then YMMV. createFont script Usage: ./createFont.sh -f[path/to/font] -s[size] <options> Help can be displayed using -h option: ./createFont.sh -h Please supply a minimum of the font and size. In this case a PNG image will be generated with the text in white on a transparent background. Options are: -a Alpha transparency for text. Value 0 thru 1 * Some versions of ImageMagick fail to render text with this option turned on. -b Background Colour. As three comma separated values Red, Green and Blue. [0-255],[0-255],[0-255] Note: background defaults to transparent. -c Colour of text. As three comma separated values Red, Green and Blue. [0-255],[0-255],[0-255] Note: text colour defaults to white. Some colour examples: Red: 205,0,0 Dark Blue: 35,43,148 Light Blue: 93,192,244 Bright Green: 91,226,81 Dark Green: 24,135,16 Bright Yellow: 219,221,47 -e Effects ---------------------------------------------------- shading Enable single colour shading effect. shadow Enable drop shadow effect (type 1 fonts only). -f Font. Either installed font name OR full file path. -h Display help. -i List installed fonts available to ImageMagick. -l Leading (Space between text lines) +/-16 (type 2) -r Reduced Character Set (Type 2 only) ---------------------------------------------------- a Do not include ANSI characters (32-127) c Do not include cyrillic characters. -s Size in pixels. Expects value between 6 and 255 -t Type ---------------------------------------------------- 1 Font type for Chameleon (Default). 2 Font type for Clover. -o Disable optimisation of final image using pngquant. -p Padding in pixels. Space between characters (type 1) -v Display version of this script. -x Disable anti aliasing. The script is not perfect and ImageMagick can do way more so if desired, feel free to improve the script but please post any updates here. Examples For a Chameleon (type 1) font: ./createFont.sh -t1 s14 -f/Users/blackosx/Library/Fonts/mplus-1c-black.ttf -b 100,150,24 Made this image: For a Clover (type 2) font: ./createFont.sh -t2 -s14 -f/Users/blackosx/Library/Fonts/mplus-1c-black.ttf -b 100,150,24 Made this image Note regarding sizes - Keep font sizes sensible as too large will be unusable. Here are two images, one using 28pt and the other using 16pt . Both of these are too large for ideal use. Note: These are using a Clover revision before 3216 where proportional spacing is not working properly. I will update these images soon. Update: to v0.87 - Added extra glyphs for radio buttons and checkboxes as per slice's request. (Note: Requires font containing those glyphs). - Included the use of imagemagik's X Constant Image option to help overcome Sherlock's issue. Update: to v0.88 - Apply X Constant Image option fix for type 2 fonts, to type 1 fonts. (Thanks for the note cecekpawon. I Finally got to it ). createFont_v0.88.zip

    HiDPI looks terrible

    Hi guys! I've successfully enabled higher than native resolutions and HiDPI ones in my 1st laptop in signature. Problem is that any resolution I choose with HIDPI looks like a bad Windows XP distro hahaha The font smoothing goes terribly wrong, but only in screen, on the screenshots it looks perfeect. My native res is 1366x768, but for my workflow i have enabled 1920x1080 , 1600x900 and 1440x810 Only the native ones appear in System Preferences, the rest I can access through Retina Display Manager. I dont know why all my resolutions look better without HiDPI, but in the screenshots below you will clearly see, and please do, the difference, when you zoom in, of whats hi dpi or not: Non-HiDPI 1600x900 (Looks pretty good, but not nearly as sharp as the native one) Hi-DPI 1600x900 (in screenshot looks great, in reality it's unbearable) What could be wrong with my settings? This is my display override: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd"> <plist version="1.0"> <dict> <key>DisplayProductID</key> <integer>5547</integer> <key>DisplayProductName</key> <string>HackBook Pro Retina</string> <key>DisplayVendorID</key> <integer>3502</integer> <key>scale-resolutions</key> <array> <data>AAAFoAAAAyoAAAABACAAAA==</data> <data>AAAGQAAAA4QAAAABACAAAA==</data> <data>AAALQAAABlQAAAABACAAAA==</data> <data>AAAMgAAABwgAAAABACAAAA==</data> <data>AAAFVgAAAwAAAAABACAAAA==</data> <data>AAAHgAAABDgAAAABACAAAA==</data> <data>AAAPAAAACHAAAAABACAAAA==</data> </array> </dict> </plist> This is my KextToPatch section in Clover, maybe it has some effect? <key>KextsToPatch</key> <array> <dict> <key>Comment</key> <string>9mb cursor byte</string> <key>Disabled</key> <false/> <key>Find</key> <data> BgAmCgEDAwMAAAACAAAwAQAAYAA= </data> <key>Name</key> <string>AppleIntelFramebufferAzul</string> <key>Replace</key> <data> BgAmCgEDAwMAAAACAAAwAQAAkAA= </data> </dict> <dict> <key>Comment</key> <string>10.11-BCM94352-5GHz-US-FCC-dv</string> <key>Disabled</key> <false/> <key>Find</key> <data> QYP8/3QsSA== </data> <key>Name</key> <string>AirPortBrcm4360</string> <key>Replace</key> <data> ZscGVVPrKw== </data> </dict> <dict> <key>Comment</key> <string>HDMI try 1</string> <key>Disabled</key> <false/> <key>Find</key> <data> AgQJAAAEAACHAAAA </data> <key>Name</key> <string>AppleIntelFramebufferAzul</string> <key>Replace</key> <data> AgQJAAAIAACHAAAA </data> </dict> <dict> <key>Comment</key> <string>Handoff</string> <key>Disabled</key> <false/> <key>Find</key> <data> SIX/dEdIiwc= </data> <key>Name</key> <string>IOBluetoothFamily</string> <key>Replace</key> <data> Qb4PAAAA60Q= </data> </dict> <dict> <key>Comment</key> <string>logo glitch</string> <key>Disabled</key> <false/> <key>Find</key> <data> AQAAdRc= </data> <key>Name</key> <string>IOGraphicsFamily</string> <key>Replace</key> <data> AQAA6xc= </data> </dict> <dict> <key>Comment</key> <string>10.11-BCM94352-Airport-Extreme</string> <key>Disabled</key> <false/> <key>Find</key> <data> axAAAHUN </data> <key>Name</key> <string>AirPortBrcm4360</string> <key>Replace</key> <data> axAAAJCQ </data> </dict> </array> </dict> Can anybody please give me some help? I dont know why it looks so bad when I enable HiDPI mode..It is supposed to look better no? And cleaner and more detailed... It looks like my El Capitan turns to Windows XP letters style when I turn on HIDPI mode... But on the screenshots you can clearly say that HiDPI looks better, when you zoom in any letters...Can you help me? It would be so nice to work in HiDPI ..
