View Full Version : PRS-500 Flasher - renaming new internal fonts with Font-creator

I also am interested in changing the internal fonts using Universal Flasher.

Can someone explain why it is necessary to use FontCreator to change the names of, say, consolas.ttf to tt0419m_.ttf instead of just making a copy of consolas and renaming it? and can you walk me through this process?

Thanks...

The Reader's BBeB (LRF) viewer has those filenames hardcoded. It only loads these three files:
tt0003m_.ttf
tt0011m_.ttf
tt0419m_.ttf
Also, most LRF books (especially those from the Connect store) use the following font names:
Swis721 BT Roman
Dutch801 Rm BT Roman
Courier10 BT Roman
Thus it's best to change both filenames and font names.
Now, the situation is somewhat better with RTF files.
The font render used by RTF viewer loads all fonts from the font directory. The actual font names chosen to render various RTF styles are specified in the kconfig.xml file, in the entries of the fsk/rootvm/ui/font element.

Thank you, Igorsk. So then the font name is changed using a program like FontCreator to insure maximum compatibility with Connect and other LRF books as well as the console itself. I will try that. Thank you.

NOTE: Be sure when you rename the fonts that you also change the font sub-family on all three fonts is set to Roman. Spent most of the day trying to figure out why the flasher would work but then it would not restart.

If you are using FontCreator the names should be like this:

font family - Swis721 BT | Dutch801 Rm BT | Courier10 BT
font subfamily - Roman | Roman | Roman
full font name - Swis721 BT Roman | Dutch801 Rm BT Roman | Courier10 BT Roman


If you change the font subfamily to anything other than Roman, your Reader will hang at the Loading screen...

Another day another lesson!
I love this forum!

pitolee, have you changed the fonts in the Connect Reader folder on the computer too? (C:\Program Files\Sony\CONNECT Reader\Data\fonts). If so, does it display your own fonts the same way as the Sony Reader displays them? I am thinking of experimenting changing the fonts on the computer before I do that on the reader.

yes. After a bit of trial and error problems with the flasher (didn't rename the fonts correctly so the reader hung up on the start screen... etc) I figured out what to do and copied the new and properly named fonts to both the reader unit and the connect folder. It works perfectly, displaying the new fonts accurately.

Works GREAT! For me Cambria/Calibri/Consolas are more readable at the small sizes I prefer (9-10pt). They look much nicer to me. I'm REALLY happy.

I also recommend adding the page turn to the joystick! Now can turn pages no matter how I'm holding the unit...

Finally, I also like the menus and book lists in the smaller font. Much more orderly looking.

And what can I say about the clock. It's there so i don't have to glance over to the bedstand... so easy and so inconspicuous...

Excellent additions from our forum friends. All of them highly recommended - and all of them work correctly as they are. The only complications comes from changing the fonts - which is why you should be sure to copy the existing font names exactly.

Play with it... I bricked it six times in two days - but always was able to reflash it (without waiting for the hard reset or reset - because everything was correct except for the fonts which it couldn't find) - so no problem.

I'm trying to duplicate your font combination, since it looks awesome in Connect Software. I'm however having some problems in converting fonts with FontCreator.

I've renamed the fonts, changed all the fields in Format/Naming menu as per instructions above, but my fonts keep bricking the reader.

The length of my converted Cambria font, now renamed to Swiss is around 900K, which is considerately bigger than original.

Could you post detailed step-by-step instructions for font changes that have to be done in FontCreator or better yet, could you PM me the fonts, you created.

Hi there,

just got my Reader yesterday & im already tired of the built-in fonts :-)

Are those fonts downloadable somewhere or could you PM them to me as well ?
beeing a brick virgin i am somewhat reluctant to try stuff like that myself at first.

Thx,

Nils

You can get the new Vista fonts by installing Excel 2007 Viewer.

Could someone post a screenshot or two of the Reader with the Vista fonts (http://www.poynter.org/column.asp?id=47&aid=78683) installed?

Is this the full set, then?


Sans Serif
Calibri
Candara
Corbel

Serif
Cambria
Constantia

Monospace
Consolas


I haven't tried changing the fonts yet, but I find myself really liking the looks of some of these fonts, and I may give Corbel and Cambria a try ... I'm not sure what I think of Consolas yet. :shrug:

I've attached a single page, side-by-side comparison of the font samples from the page that TadW linked, if anyone wants to see them next to one another.

It opens in a web-browser, in case anyone's not familiar with MHT files. :nice:

Getting Vista fonts is not the problem.

What I would like are some instructions, how to change them so the reader would recognize them.

So far I've done the following:

1. opened font in FontDesigner (Calibri)
2. changed font naming to correctly set font family (Dutch801 Rm BT), font subfamily (Roman) and full font name (Dutch801 Rm BT Roman) for all character sets, that are supported
3. saved font as tt0011m_.ttf
4. copied fonts to Reader with Universal Flasher

So far my attempts were unsuccesfull and resulted in bricked reader.

Any help would be appreciated.

I'm having some problems getting them on the Reader too, though they seem to work fine in the ConnSoft. :undecided

I know I'm flashing things correctly in general, because I've managed to add the clock and set the "Right" Jogstick movement to go to the next page (I left the "Left" one set to move backward in the History file, because I find that useful when I accidentally hit buttons, and backing up in the History is usually identical to going to the previous page http://www.mobileread.com/forums/images/smiliesadd1/wink.gif)

So can someone spot what I'm doing wrong? The error I get is when I go to flash the image (it builds it without errors), it tells me that the flash failed, and (something along the lines of) that I should reflash with a stock image. Perhaps that might help localize what's going on.

The only new thing I'm trying to do with this particular flash is add the fonts.

I've put them in the (SD Card Root):\files\opt\sony\ebook\FONT directory ... is this the right place?

I've attached the naming adjustments I made to the Calibri font, in case I've got something off there. If anyone spots an error, I'd appreciate knowing about it, 'cause I just ain't seein' it. :)

Hmm, this is quite strange. It seems the flashing worked fine but verification failed. The only idea that comes to mind is that there is a bad block in the flash... but I think that should be caught by the controller and remapped automatically... I don't really know what else to suggest here, sorry :(

It's odd that it works fine as long as I'm not trying to add the fonts -- that's why I thought I must have made an error while "adjusting" them. :chinscratch:

I may try adding them one at a time and see if that gets me any closer. :shrug:

I tracked the problem down to being with the copy of Calibri I was using, so I switched to another one, and it seemed to go just fine but ....

Now I'm stuck in the "Updating firmware now..." screen and it's been there for ... a long time now.

It doesn't seem to want to hard reset, and it doesn't seem to see the card so I'm not sure how to start over.

Anybody got a suggestion, or is it time to contact Sony's Tech Support folks? :bigcry:

NatCh

Okay, diabloNL's instructions got me out of the woods, but the loop went on long enough that now my battery is drained. :sad:

I think I've decided from this little experiment that the Reader certainly can drain its battery in less than 3~4 weeks. I was at 2 blocks when it started and an hour of trying to update its firmware (before I knew how to fix it) means that it's flat now. So I guess the silver lining here is that I've demonstrated that there is a fair amount of power management going on in the Reader under normal circumstances.

BTW, I've added diabloNL's unbricking instructions to the Wiki, so they'll be easier to find next time I want them. :wink:

Okay, I think I've figured out a part of what was going wrong with my attempts to replace the fonts -- I think I had some of the internal attributes off.

So, for the future reference of those who come after me, I hereby attach screen shots of the internal attributes of the original Sony Reader fonts, as seen and displayed by FontCreator.

They are Monospace, Serif, and Sans Serif, in that order.

When you embed the fonts in the LRF, the page turns slow down noticeably. Try the Little Fuzzy (http://www.mobileread.com/forums/showthread.php?t=10393) I posted with the embedded font and you'll see.

NatCh
06-28-2007, 09:57 PM
So do you have the replaced fonts working now?Nope.

I'm beginning to think that M$ may have done something obnoxious to them, that's interfering with the load somehow. The only one that would actually load was the Consolas, and that's the one I care the least about -- like not at all. I'm giving up for the evening. :shrug:


Wow instead of going through this whole saga isn't it just easier to embed the fonts in the LRF file?Yes, it would be easier, for books I make myself, at least. But it really slows down the page turn speed (like by a factor of 2~2.5). :shrug:

Changing the font would also give me those fonts on all BBeB, TXT, and RTF files in one shot -- including the ConnStore books (unless they embed theirs, which I wouldn't put past them). :nice:

But I do appreciate you're making sure that I thought of that approach, nonetheless. :smile:

06-28-2007, 10:26 PM
Hmm I haven't noticed a major slowdown with embedded fonts in LRF files generated with html2lrf. Certainly not more than 1.5 times which is tolerable. The problem with replacing fonts is that the replaced fonts' metrics will not match the original font, so if a LRF file has features that make use of absolute positioning (e.g. tables) formatting will be all screwed up.

JSWolf
06-28-2007, 10:30 PM
What I want embedded fonts for is so I can fix things like bold and italics which don't work all that well at the moment.

Well if you look at the demo file of html2lrf you'll see that bold and italics have been fixed and there is no significant page turn slowdown (as far as I can tell).

For a book that has a lot of italics or bold, I can live with the slower page turns. The trick is to train your eyes & hands so you hit the next page button and finish reading the last little bit and then the page is turned.

I find myself doing that even with plain LRFs, all a slower page turn means is that I need to do it a little before ;-)

Sorry, I've been away for a month so have not been able to contribute.

After just changing the font names, then unbricking, and copying the internal font data on each file using font creator (both in Windows and Macintosh areas) I was finally able to change the internal fonts to Calibri, Cambria and Consolas. I simply copied the data over from the existing fonts - identical to post #25.

Note: the font file name for courier (for example) is tt0419m_ttf, then using Font Creator you copy the internal naming conventions exactly as appear in the default fonts (font family: Courier10 BT; font subfamily: Roman; full font name: Courier10 BT Roman).

The trick in the end, for me, was that for the fonts to install correctly I had to erase all my books first and start with a clean unit with an empty storage area. Then I flashed it.

You may want to try that. :pray:

It's been working great for me and over the past month while traveling I read over 6000 pages in very nice, easy to read fonts.

I may give it another go, removing everything and trying them that way. Maybe even a hard reset -- just to be sure. :shrug:

Thank, pitolee!

NatCh -- going through the same misery now- did you ever solve this? Thanks.
