I think you either misplaced them or something is bad coded into the exe...

You have not altered the character spacing value in window.bin.  Look it up.  You also need to test the table at run time by accessing memory address 0099ddaf or thereabouts.  It is not as simple as just adding a character to the texture, you need to tell the game how wide the character is.

I have repeated this 5 times now ;)  Someone needs to add the rest of the characters to my adobe sheet and then make sure all the character spacing values are correct too.

Don't guess, it just wastes the persons time :)

Thanks DLPB...
