Hello I have 16x32 RGB Matrix panel and would like to edit the numbers in the font. I have found that the file glcdfont.c has controls the font, so I downloaded a program that allows you to create fonts and export the code.

I replaced the lines of code that control the numbers with

0xFF, 0x81, 0x81, 0xFF, 0x00, // Code for char 0
0x82, 0xFF, 0x80, 0x00, 0x00, // Code for char 1
0xE3, 0x91, 0x89, 0x87, 0x00, // Code for char 2
0x99, 0x99, 0x99, 0xFF, 0x00, // Code for char 3
0x0F, 0x08, 0x08, 0xFF, 0x00, // Code for char 4
0x8F, 0x89, 0x89, 0xF9, 0x00, // Code for char 5
0xFF, 0x91, 0x91, 0xF1, 0x00, // Code for char 6
0x01, 0x01, 0xFD, 0x03, 0x00, // Code for char 7
0xFF, 0x99, 0x99, 0xFF, 0x00, // Code for char 8
0x8F, 0x89, 0x89, 0xFF, 0x00, // Code for char 9

however the font on the board has not changed, I have checked every character that it displays incase I changed the wrong characters however none have changed.

Any help on how to alter the font would be great, thank you.

Since I don't have any experience with this, I tried searching for a solution to your issue but had little success. You can try searching "RGB matrix edit font" and see the results for yourself.

No, no one is giving you the cold shoulder. Chances are that no one has had a problem like this.
