Font structure ignoring TextureCorner

It appears that TextureCorner is being ignored by the font structure.

In my font sheet, I had an 18 pixel gap on the left hand side of the sheet which meant all letters were slightly offset.


TextureCorner = (18, 0, 0)

...made no difference so I simply cropped off the left 18 pixels in gimp and all was well.

So this is easily solved, but just reporting this as TextureCorner is listed as available at:

    I think it's a typo in the wiki, there's no property called TextureCorner for fonts. When looking at CreationTemplate.ini, we have:
    Texture = path/to/ImageFile.ext;
    TextureOrigin = [Vector]; NB: Top left corner, z is ignored; Defaults to (0, 0, 0);
    TextureSize = [Vector]; NB: Texture size for the character definition area, z is ignored; Defaults to texture's width & height;
    CharacterList = "ordered list of character"; NB: All characters with a glyph in the texture file have to be specified in order of appearance; Supports ANSI or UTF-8 strings (*NOT* ISO-Latin-1!)
    CharacterSize = [Vector]; NB: If defined, CharacterHeight & CharacterWidthList will be ignored. z value is ignored;
    CharacterHeight = [Float]; NB: This is only used for non-monospaced fonts, ie. when CharacterSize isn't defined;
    CharacterWidthList = [Float] # [Float] # ...; NB: This is only used for non-monospaced fonts, ie. when CharacterSize isn't defined. There should be exactly one value per character defined in CharacterList;
    CharacterSpacing = [Vector]; NB: Empty space between characters, z is ignored. Defaults to (0, 0, 0);

    Be it for fonts or graphics, TextureOrigin should always be the property used.

    Mmh, after checking, even if TextureOrigin is the way to go, TextureCorner is still silently supported. Do you have a TextureSize defined as well?
    You need both properties for them to be used.

    Ah no I didn't supply TextureSize . I assumed it would calculate automatically. But that's fine, I'll add a note in the wiki.

    So should the wiki comply with the creationtemplate.ini and be called TextureOrigin?

    I'll correct it if so.

    If you don't mind, that'd be great. TextureCorner shouldn't be used anywhere at that point.

    All done.
