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/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)
