Oh where oh where have my fonts gone?
« on: February 14, 2017, 01:09:34 AM »
I've been playing around with getting ML working on the 5D3.134 firmware and have gotten quite far but am stumped trying to find the addresses for the fonts.

According to the 5D3.123 code:

Code: [Select]
// http://magiclantern.wikia.com/wiki/Fonts
#define BFNT_CHAR_CODES    0xF7363A50
#define BFNT_BITMAP_OFFSET 0xF7366BC4
#define BFNT_BITMAP_DATA   0xF7369D38

Ok, been there before on the 700D firmware update and treated these just like finding stubs but these addresses aren't in the ROM1.BIN disassembly. I looked up the wiki reference and it pointed to the find_fnt.py script which is in the contrib/indy directory and it needs to be run on ROM0.BIN. Ok, so far so good. This is what I got this for the 5D3.123:

Code: [Select]

0xff373a2c: FNT

0xff373a38: (+0x0c) charmap_size = 0x3174
0xff373a3c: (+0x10) bitmap_size = 0x89f16

  +0x04: char width = 22
  +0x06: X offset = 0
  +0x08: Y offset = 0
    bitmap size = 0x42

So now I'm more lost than ever. Where are the character codes, bitmap offset and bitmap data and how did someone come up with values of around 0xF736xxxx?

By the way, here's what find_fnt.py is reporting on the 5D3.134 ROM0.BIN file:

The key to this mystery is here:
Code: [Select]
if (len(sys.argv)>2):
  base = int(sys.argv[2], 16)
else:
  base = 0xff010000

Therefore, that script assumes the ROM dump loads at 0xff010000 (this was the main firmware start address for DIGIC 4 models, so in the early days, ROM files were saved from that address).

The second key is:
Code: [Select]
0xff373a40: (+0x14) font name = 'HCanonGothic///'
0xffb73a40: (+0x14) font name = 'HCanonGothic///'

so ROM0 size is actually 0x800000 = 8MB.

The third key is the ROM layout, also visible in QEMU startup logs:

Code: [Select]
F0000000 - F0FFFFFF: eos.rom0
F1000000 - F1FFFFFF: eos.rom0_mirror_F1
F2000000 - F2FFFFFF: eos.rom0_mirror_F2
F3000000 - F3FFFFFF: eos.rom0_mirror_F3
F4000000 - F4FFFFFF: eos.rom0_mirror_F4
F5000000 - F5FFFFFF: eos.rom0_mirror_F5
F6000000 - F6FFFFFF: eos.rom0_mirror_F6
F7000000 - F7FFFFFF: eos.rom0_mirror_F7
F8000000 - F8FFFFFF: eos.rom1
F9000000 - F9FFFFFF: eos.rom1_mirror_F9
FA000000 - FAFFFFFF: eos.rom1_mirror_FA
FB000000 - FBFFFFFF: eos.rom1_mirror_FB
FC000000 - FCFFFFFF: eos.rom1_mirror_FC
FD000000 - FDFFFFFF: eos.rom1_mirror_FD
FE000000 - FEFFFFFF: eos.rom1_mirror_FE
FF000000 - FFFFFFFF: eos.rom1_mirror_FF

Therefore, 0xF[0-7][3B]63A50 should all be valid choices for BFNT_CHAR_CODES.

Thanks! Fonts are working.

Keep inching closer.

This looks promising! Does my old repo containing a 1.3.3 port help with this at all? Last I tried it, the port was running OK though it needed more extensive testing, and there were some flickering menus that I didn't know how to solve:

I looked at that pull request a while back but it says:

Nothing to merge. The source or destination branch was deleted or these changes already exist in the destination repository.

So I thought it was dead. Looks like I should have looked up your repository because it would have saved me a lot of hours--though it was fun to figure out something this challenging. Been having some issues with running the Stubs API test so just I tried your MALLOC_STRUCT and it worked. The 1.3.3 to 1.3.4 update was a very minor update.

Here's my work in progress. I made a pull request on my repository to see what a "real" pull request would look like and to make notes. Please add any comments you may have.

https://bitbucket.org/daniel_fort/magic-lantern/pull-requests/2/update-to-5d3134-wip/diff

I might test your 5D3.113 version and maybe try out some more of your addresses. Stubs weren't much of a problem but several of those constants have me stumped.
