Create font files for Bootloader GUI's

126 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

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
 
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

post-331032-0-80626200-1433315282_thumb.png

 

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.

post-331032-0-72599600-1432811952_thumb.jpg
 
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 :P ).

Hi blackosx,

I have another idea how to make any font to be proportional. Look

font.png

We can just clamp red squares after create a line of text.

GUI->Font->Proportional=true?

Hi Slice

 

That could work, but maybe allow theme designer to choose clamp colour in theme.plist as the font me be designed to show in red?

Are you thinking of keeping the same font grid as currently used with Clover?

 

Here's a visual of a font file using what you suggest.

post-331032-0-77310500-1432811243_thumb.png

 

Here's an actual test font file if you want to experiment.

Updated to v0.77.

Added -l option to allow adding leading (line spacing) for type 2 (Clover) font files.

 

Example:

To add 4 pixels between lines

$ ./createFont.sh -t2 -f/Users/blackosx/Library/Fonts/airstrip.ttf -s16 -l4

Screenshot using font file with default leading (as v0.76)

Looks to be not good idea because of dirty in font images.

Clover 3210

That was quick! Well done Slice :)

 

You're on the right track but just needs tweaking somewhere...

Bed time now but I'll see if I get time tomorrow to have a look at your code to try to understand what you have done.

Your screenshot from 3212 looks great :D

I'll build it and test. Well done Slice

 

 

EDIT:

I not seeing good results here with this font

post-331032-0-68116100-1432881957_thumb.png

 

Gives me this:

post-331032-0-17992000-1432881987_thumb.jpg

 

For comparison:

(Results from previous version of Clover <3210) in post #6

 

Using

<key>Font</key>
<dict>
<key>CharWidth</key>
<integer>16</integer>
<key>Path</key>
<string>type2_airstrip_16_Cell_16x22.png</string>
<key>Type</key>
<string>Load</string>
<key>Proportional</key>
<true/>
</dict>

EDIT2:

I was thinking maybe the font file was bad so I've made another font file using Universe Bold and run a test on Clover r3196 and r3212. Here are the results:

 

r3196

r3212

Font file for ref:

post-331032-0-72975300-1432883501_thumb.png

 

So still not perfect here as the code seems to struggle with thin characters, full stops, commas. But otherwise - very good.

More tuning is done with rev 3214.

You also should carefully check font files for characters overlaps and choose best CharWidth values.

 

My algo sensitive for extra dots in the font file.

See dots after a, o, ...

Screen Shot 2015-05-29 at 15.25.24.png


Font WoG_Monaco_ExtraSmooth_10W unaffected by proportional setting if CharWidth = 9.

Font BoG_LucidaConsole_10W_NA affected. I corrected digits 4 and 8 by shifting them in place and committed corrected font to svn.

We should create other fonts that will be good looking with proportional setting.


Also good experience with theme iclover. There is good font

Screen Shot 2015-05-29 at 16.04.41.png

 

So I am waiting other artist will create fonts good for proportional looking.

Great. I'll test this evening.

Font files generated using this script should not overlap.

Any necessary tweaks to the font files can be done in the script.

 

My ago sensitive for extra dots in the font file.

My only thought on this for now is some fonts where tightly packed due to trying to keep the spacing to a minimum. But now there's no reason why there cannot be more space between the characters. This will remove any chance of the char width encroaching the next character,

 

What font file is used for your screenshot? can you post the font file?

 

Font WoG_Monaco_ExtraSmooth_10W unaffected by proportional setting if CharWidth = 9.

Font BoG_LucidaConsole_10W_NA affected. I corrected digits 4 and 8 by shifting them in place and committed corrected font to svn.

I'll test with those later.

Your adjustment to BOG_LucidaConsole will not be necessary if I remake all files with more space.

 

We should create other fonts that will be good looking with proportional setting.

That's what this script is for.

Once we nail exactly how to best create font file for your algo then we can make as many fonts as you wish :)

Also good experience with theme iclover. There is good font

Looks great :)

EDIT: That's the WoB_Hellfire_Bold_9W.png file.

@Slice - Have you got time to test your latest build with font files from post #10 ?

I can't until later.

Clover3214.

I see some problems with displaying fonts only in the theme metal.

post-617057-0-33894600-1432905833_thumb.jpg

In addition, it was in previous versions of Clover. If you write the name of the theme embedded is written in the menu,(EMBEDDED), the theme will look like the image below.

Hi droples :)

 

This is due to the font file.

I'm pretty certain this can be fixed with a new version of the font with more spacing. I'll test tonight.

In addition, it was in previous versions of Clover. If you write the name of the theme embedded is written in the menu,(EMBEDDED), the theme will look like the image below.

Thanks for the note but that's more a Clover issue and not really for this thread.

It is. But I have to rescale it from width 219 to 256. It should be 16x.

This algo has many problems with existing fonts. It will be good with new fonts.

 

 

 

In addition, it was in previous versions of Clover. If you write the name of the theme embedded is written in the menu,(EMBEDDED), the theme will look like the image below.

attachicon.gifEmbedded.jpg

Menu shows theme names as CAPITAL if the name length

With legacy Clover there will be good.

But we have to enter theme names manually exactly as they are.

There are several problems with embedded theme that I don't want to correct. It used for extra cases.

r3216 hits the spot slice!

 
I spent my spare time this weekend debugging and understanding your recent changes for proportional spacing and thought I was close to getting it just right. But when I saw your recent change I thought I’d test.

Great! :D
 
I'll test with some different fonts later..
 
EDIT: Tested with 6 different font files created using the script and all working great.

Will try your script.

About ImageMagick there is other ways to install

http://www.imagemagick.org/script/binary-releases.php


sudo port install ImageMagick

Error: org.macports.build for port ImageMagick returned: command execution failed
Please see the log file for port ImageMagick for details:
    /opt/local/var/macports/logs/_opt_local_var_macports_sources_rsync.macports.org_release_tarballs_ports_graphics_ImageMagick/ImageMagick/main.log
To report a bug, follow the instructions in the guide:
    http://guide.macports.org/#project.tickets
Error: Processing of port ImageMagick failed


Binary release also failed in 10.7.5

Illegal instruction: 4

because it created for Yosemite :(


This is a mistake in macport ;)

Corrected by

sudo ln -s /opt/local/include/freetype2 /opt/local/include/freetype

Now the build successful!

Hi Slice.

 

I use Homebrew to install ImageMagick as, for me, it was the easiest way to install it. I found the package installlers gave me problems. I think the problem you have is a bad install of imagemagick.

/Users/slice/Downloads/createFont_v0.78/IM_Command.command: line 1: 935 Illegal instruction: 4

I've just installed homebrew and imagemagick on 10.6.8.

And then run the script:

Building ImageMagick code sequence
Running ImageMagick to create image
Opening /Volumes/Data/Nick/Scripting/createFontScript/createFont_v0.78/type2_Futur_22pt_Cell_24x28.png

But there's a problem as the final PNG image does not contain any text. I will need to consult the ImageMagick documentation on this for 10.6.

EDIT: Fixed with createFont script v0.81.

 

EDIT: The PNG is created fine under 10.10

Note to self - Update script to include extended ASCII character set and cyrillic characters.

Done.

Hi Slice

 
Apologies. Yes it does look like you have ImageMagick installed correctly.
The problem lies with the ImageMagick command generated by my script which was highlighted by the errors you posted.
 
./createFont.sh: line 131: [: -gt: unary operator expected
..
./createFont.sh: line 40: printf: .5: invalid number
 
This results in a malformed command.
 
What version of OS X have you run the script?
 
EDIT:
To test your ImageMagick you can paste the following to a text file, save with name like makefont.command to the createfont script dir, chmod +x and double click it.

Updated to v0.79

- Final PNG image for Clover (type 2) fonts will now automatically include extended ASCII and cyrillic glyphs, if they exist in the font.

EDIT:

For a bit of fun and to show it working.

 
Downloaded the transformers_movie font from http://www.dafont.com/theme.php?cat=303
 
./createFont.sh -t2 -f/Users/blackosx/Desktop/transformers_movie/Transformers\ Movie.ttf -s24 -o -l4
 
Made PNG file
type2_Transformers Movie_24pt_Cell_22x23.png
post-331032-0-09597800-1433316211_thumb.png
 
Threw it in Shield theme, changing theme.plist to font path and CharWidth to 22.

* In this example, the text is too big as the help page type is truncated. Other pages, Options, About will also be truncated.
Maybe Clover can be changed to not truncate the text if the monitor width is wide enough?
 
EDIT2:
I forgot to enable Clover's proportional spacing. Here are images with that enabled.

      Install macOS 10.15 Catalina on Gigabyte P55-USB3 with Radeon RX 580 graphics card using a USB device created with the createinstallmedia command and Clover as bootloader. Instructions to install macOS 10.14 Mojave on this computer are almost identical, replacing Catalina app with Mojave, so this article is suitable for both versions of macOS. The Gigabyte P55-USB3 motherboard (and some others from the same brand with the P55 / H55 chipset) have made it easy to build a hackintosh and install macOS since 10 years ago. Although it is an old motherboard, the behavior with Mojave or Catalina is very good after changing the classic hard drive (HDD) for a solid state drive (SSD).

      Components of the hackintosh
      Gigabyte GA-P55-USB3 motherboard: P55 chipset, 1156 socket, ALC892 audio, Gigabit RTL8111D network, DDR3 RAM Intel Core i5-750 processor for socket 1156: 4 cores, 8MB cache, clock rate 2.66 GHz Fenvi FV-T919 wireless + Bluetooth card: PCI-Express, wifi is ac type, detected by macOS as Airport and Apple Bluetooth Radeon RX 580 8 GB graphics card: works OOB but with a few details to be considered, it has its own article.  
      Previous requirements
      Install macOS Catalina app in /Applications folder USB flash drive with at least 16GB prepared from Disk Utility with MBR partition scheme and formatted as Mac Os Plus (on older Gigabyte boards like mine, USB sticks partitioned with GUID scheme instead of MBR usually hang the system when booting) Recent version of Clover (I have used r5117) Recent versions of Lilu (at least 1.4.4) and WhateverGreen (at least 1.3.9) to fine-tune the behavior of the graphics card Recent version of RealtekRTL8111 (I have used 2.2.2) FaceSMC version 6.26-322 (newer versions disable automatic mounting of USB devices on my system).  
      Create install USB
      Run this command from Terminal (assuming the target device is called USB):
      Bash: sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Catalina.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/USB /Applications/Install\ macOS\ Catalina.app
      Clover must be installed on the USB memory, I choose the following options:
      Bootloader > Install boot0af on the MBR CloverEFi > CloverEFI 64-bit SATA BIOS Drivers, 64 bit > Recommended drivers > FSInject + SMCHelper + XhciDxe BIOS Drivers, 64 bit > File System drivers > ApfsDriverLoader Install RC scripts on selected volume Optional RC scripts > Disable sleep proxy client.  
      You have to copy 4 kexts to the EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other folder of the USB device: FaceSMC 6.26-322, Lilu 1.4.4, WhateverGreen 1.3.9 and RealtekRTL8111 2.2.2. Regarding the config.plist file, the most significant is:
      Boot > kext-dev-mode = 1 in Boot arguments GUI > Theme embedded, EmbeddedThemeType Dark, Screen Resolution 1920x1080, Preboot in Hide Volume Graphics > blank, nothing is checked except if foxbox solution is used to have more than 2 connectors enabled RT Variables > 0x28 in BooterConfig and 0x67 in CsrActiveConfig SMBios > iMac14,2 Sytem Parameters> Yes in Inject Kexts and check Inject System ID.  
      Install macOS Catalina

      Boot from the USB device and choose Install macOS from Install macOS Catalina. The installation program runs until the PC restarts. Here choose Install macOS from HDD (the name of the volume you are installing macOS on). With RX 580 graphics card, the screen goes black in this second phase of the installation, it is a phase in which the user has nothing to do until the PC is restarted so you can let it work until the Clover menu again. You have to choose Boot macOS from HDDto boot the installed system from the hard disk, the screen is recovered and you can configure the account and the initial options. From this moment the screen works fine.

      In summary:
      Boot from USB > Clover menu > Install macOS from Install macOS Catalina > screen works fine Boot from USB > Clover menu > Install macOS from HDD > black screen Boot from USB > Clover menu > Boot macOS from HDD > screen works fine.  
      Install Clover and kexts on the hard drive

      Clover needs to be installed on the disk where we just installed macOS. Options are the same as when installing it on the USB memory. You also have to copy the 4 kexts (FaceSMC 6.26-322, Lilu 1.4.4, WhateverGreen 1.3.9 and RealtekRTL8111 2.2.2) into the EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other folder on the EFI partition of the disk. And review the config.plist file remembering the comments for the USB.

      If everything goes well, the computer starts from the hard disk with a running copy of macOS Catalina.

      Radeon RX 580 8 GB graphics card on macOS High Sierra (as of 10.13.6), Mojave and Catalina on the P55-USB3 board: excellent performance with acceleration (Metal) OOB, no need for drivers (kexts), with 3 drawbacks, one has to do with the boot of the operating system (a solution is proposed), another with the number of rear connectors enabled (a solution is proposed) and another that only affects to one phase of the Mojave or Catalina installation (without clear solution for now).

      I have placed the XFX AMD Radeon RX-580 P8DFD6 8GB Triple X Edition GDDR5, 256BIT, DVI + HDMI + 3DP graphics card on a 10 year old motherboard (Gigabyte P55-USB3) in order to update the hackintosh to 10.14 Mojave and 10.15 Catalina because the card that I have used in past years, Nvidia Geforce GTX 750 1GB, has stopped working after 10.13.6 High Sierra since this was the last version for which Nvidia published the alternate web drivers that were necessary for the card to work well with graphic acceleration.

      The new RX 580 card needs considerably more space than the old one although it fits perfectly in an ATX case, and requires an additional power connector. It has 2 big fans that most of the time are stopped, at least in my case. In macOS it works perfectly, even with Metal acceleration, without additional drivers and without extra settings in Clover. But it has drawbacks that I comment below.

      Alterations during startup

      During the boot of the operating system, when the screen goes from the basic driver to the AMD driver, 2 artifacts appear randomly, they are very short in duration (from one to a few seconds):
      Very short flashing white screen that may or may not be accompanied by purple lines The fans runs for a few seconds (the noise is clearly audible). This behavior is solved with the installation of 2 kexts, Lilu and WhateverGreen. Lilu is an extension created by acidantheraand vit9696 among others whose function is to help to patch kexts, processes and libraries during macOS boot. It is accompanied by specific plugins for the task required, for example WhateverGreen that injects necessary patches for certain AMD, Intel and Nvidia graphics cards. It is mandatory to have both extensions together, one of them separately does not correct the problem.
      I have installed Lilu 1.4.4 and WhateverGreen 1.3.9 in the EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other folder of the EFI partition and artifacts have disappeared. Remember that these 2 extensions are not necessary for the card to work properly, if you tolerate those very brief distortions of the screen or the noise of the fans running for a few seconds, you can live without Lilu and WhateverGreen.

      Note: authors recommend that when using Lilu and WhateverGreen with Radeon cards, NO graphic settings have to be added to Clover (Inject ATI, etc.).

      Note: these alterations, especially the brief white screen and less frequently purple lines and fan noise, are also seen in Windows and some real Macs with the same card.

      Alteration during macOS installation

      Boot from USB > Clover menu > Install macOS from Install macOS Catalina > screen works fine
      Boot from USB > Clover menu > Install macOS from MacintoshHD > black screen
      Booting from USB > Clover menu > Boot macOS from MacintoshHD > screen works fine.

      In the first and third stages, screen works fine. In the second stage the screen goes black although the installation continues. The user has nothing to do at this moment so you can leave the PC working until the Clover menu is shown again, the screen is recovered, the initial account options can be configured and you can enter into the newly installed system with correct resolution and acceleration.
      This behavior is not corrected even by placing Lilu and WhateverGreen into the USB device. At least in my case I have not found a solution for it. Yo can install macOS perfectly with that drawback of not seeing how it progresses during the second phase of the installation.

      Only 2 connectors of the 5 available work

      This card has 3 Display Port (DP) ports, 1 HDMI port and 1 DVI port. In my case, only 2 DP work, those that are further from the HDMI connector. It is enough if you use a single monitor or 2 monitors that can be connected by DP. But if you want to have 3 or more connected devices or some of them only have HDMI, it is necessary to enable the 5 connectors or at least 4 of them since the DVI is obsolete and does not allow resolutions as high as DP and HDMI.
      User foxbox has proposed a solution in a thread titled [Solved] Sapphire RX 580 Nitro + SE | black screen on HDMI and DVI. Must inject from Clover a modification to the Orinoco framebuffer (which is used in the RX 580 card) so that the 5 connectors lack a fixedly assigned address and, instead, receive it dynamically. This change is made from the KextsToPatch section of Clover. Read the post from foxbox.
      This has to be accompanied by 3 changes in the Graphics section of Clover: Orinoco in FB Name / Inject ATI / 5 in Video Ports. I have tested this solution in macOS Catalina and it effectively enables the 5 ports of the card but, since I only use 1 monitor, I have removed it and I am with Lilu and WhateverGreen.

      Bonjour,
       
      Je rencontre un souci depuis la dernière maj supplémentaire catalina 10.15.4, même chose pour la 10.15.5 aujourd'hui : après le début de l'update, lorsque le pc redémarre, je ne vois pas le volume d'installation dans les volumes de l'écran de boot clover (v5118). j'ai juste Preboot dans les volumes cachés au démarrage, et j'ai essayé de les afficher, le préboot de l'install apparait bien mais le boot n'aboutit jamais par ce biais. du coup, je suis bloqué en 10.15.4. Auriez-vous une idée du problème ?

      Perhaps it was the first NEC (Lenovo) Lavie Z HZ550 to install hackintosh. I hope more people who like Lavie Z series can experience Hackintosh at HZ550. She is really great.
       
      I found HZ550 & HZ750 on the Chinese website, which is amazing. It weighs only 790g, 13.3 inches, and the standard 2k screen, which is too attractive to me. I am a Hackintosh enthusiast. I think HZ550 or HZ750 with MacOS is the best Unfortunately, the Lavie Z series is not listed in China, only exists in the Japanese and American markets, and in the Japanese market is the NEC brand, while the American market uses the Lenovo logo.
       
      Fortunately, I got an HZ550 from Taobao. Yes, not HZ750. In comparison, HZ750 has more touch screens and 360 ° flip. These are hard to attract me. More importantly, HZ750 is about 200g heavier than HZ550 That's why I chose HZ550. Well, because he is only 2,000 RMB.
       
      The specific introduction can refer to NEC Japan official website:http://nec-lavie.jp/products/hz13b/
       
      The HZ550 hardware list I obtained:

      Advantages: small size, light weight, 2K screen, 8G memory, 512g SSD, keyboard feels good, and wireless network card can be replaced, which is unimaginable in today's thin and light books.
      Disadvantages: The sound is small, almost the same as the mosquitoes.
       
      Ok, bragging is over!
      In order to use the wireless network, I changed the wireless network card from inter 7265 to BCM94352ZAE. Some people called it DW1560. It is uncomfortable that in China, this card and his elder brother DW1830 were hyped to a high price of 480RMB. of. Fortunately, I bought it early, and this card is also very stable under win10, and there is no high delay and outage. The hard disk should be PM951 of Samsung, not PM981, which is lucky.   Before installing Hackintosh: You need to prepare a 16G U disk, SanDisk is not a rough choice for making MacOS installation disk, I used the latest MacOS Catalina 10.15.5, got config.plist from Rehabman, and put together an EFI, the latest version of clover and kext drivers. Thanks to Rehabman and the developers of the Black Apple community. I do n’t like that OC team very much.
      Make an installation disk: If you have a computer running MacOS, you can use the command line to make it, if you do n’t have a computer running MacOS, you can try VMware, I know that the insanelymac forum allows discussion, or use ether to write the image to U disk, use the EFI I provided to boot into the installation process.   BIOS setting: Press F12 at boot to enter the BIOS settings, Tab switches to "Security-Secure boot", set to "DISable", this is what we need, and switch to "Boot -Boot devices", set the U disk as the first boot item You can directly enter the clover guide interface, please follow it for google it.
      It is worth noting that the remaining space of your EFI partition needs to be greater than 200M, otherwise, the disk format will be wrong. In addition, the format partition format is APFS, do not choose to encrypt, your data is not valuable, at least you must have this awareness of Hackintosh, the file safe is also the same, do not enable, do not use to find your mac, otherwise, change the machine, OK .   Fortunately, no additional ssdt patch is required. All the patch functions are implemented through clover. The flat Apple is turned on. This is to solve the problem of the flower screen. You can find a solution yourself.
      Experience your black apple, this will bring a better experience than MacBook Pro. EFI_HZ550.zip
