ESI format

I don't know if you're still adding fonts to the Westwood Font Editor, but I've figured out most of the ESI Format, which was used in at least 15 games. It might make a good addition to your program. Unfortunately, it doesn't have much room for adding new characters, so it will only be useful in game translations if the translator is okay with sacrificing some characters. --TheAlmightyGuru (talk) 20:35, 17 December 2020 (UTC)

Ooh. That looks interesting. I'll take a look. The page seems to be a bit lacking in describing the format of the final images, though. All it says is "monochrome" and "CGA"... so does that make it 1-bit black-white, 2-bit paletted, or somehow 2-bit grayscale?

Ah, judging from the code, it seems to be 1-bit. All right, I'm on it.
