For simple games you'll need simple grafics. But it isn't that easy to find grafics to share with others without hitting someones copyrights. Everyone may have a font like wingding or webdings in his windows font folder.
Use these for symbols in your App?!

Here is a FBA tool under development:

gfxfontgen prints a truetypefont (& and other things) on the screen. Ready to take a screenshot.
After editing the screenshot in your favourite paintprogram, save it as PNG-file, and use that file as (partially) gfxfont.

Edit the attached project for your own needs. As first testapplication i used the Tutorproject 09b.
There are lot of comments in it, you should find your way...

I was sure, i did attach the project to the prev post...
here you are again. oops there's a limit of 256kb to upload...

Needed to delete the fba.exe files and the truetypes fonts i used out off the resource folders.
To reanimate, add the wingding- or symbol- or webdings- ttf from your own system. \windows\fonts\*.ttf

When adding as resource in FBA I had to copy & paste the filename of the tff from explorer windows to (buggy?!) filedialogbox in fba.
