What is a FNT file?

FNT files have multiple uses, and Font is one of them.

Font File

Files containing the .fnt file extension are font files used by various Windows computer applications. Each FNT file contains a single raster or vector font. On Windows, the fonts are stored in the Fonts system folder.

While the FNT file used to be the preferred font format of choice, it is now considered an "outdated" bitmap font format. As a result, the OpenType Font and TrueType Font file formats have, for the most part, replaced the older, more antiquated FNT file format.

A lot of proprietary font formats used by specific applications also use the FNT file extension, e.g., various games from Westwood and DIV Games Studio, Print Shop Deluxe, PolyPlot, DynaCADD, and many others.
