Today I'm learning that making fonts is difficult

I'm trying to make a glitchy variable font using open source tools that work on linux. What I'm trying to achieve is something like this from a video I made many years ago

There's a very handy guide on making variable fonts using fontforge and other tools

but when I run fontmake it complains about the two fonts having different number of segments (they have the same amount of points).

I think I'm gonna have to manually fix it or manually glitch it. Gonna take a looooooooong time

@paperdigits @n8 if he can that would be great! I'm afraid of asking on mailing list/software support forums as I know I'm misusing the software and fonts
