Quake font

From Quake Wiki

The bitmap font that Quake uses to display text in the console or on screen. The image data is stored in gfx.wad by default but can also can be placed in gfx/conchars.lmp.


Certain characters have special meaning when printing on the client:

  • \{13} - New line
  • \{10} - Line Feed
  • \{2} - 'Red' text for prints (used by the engine for the map message)
  • \{1} - 'Red' text for prints plus play misc/talk.wav (used by the engine for chat text)
