Anti-aliased TTF Font Issue
« on: October 22, 2006, 07:32:27 AM »

I have been testing the use of true type fonts within WME, and I can't seem to make the text anti-aliased, I have added the shadow around the text, but it just doesn't seem to be anti-aliasing.

Here is the code that I used for the .fon file

TTFONT
{
  SIZE = 8 
  FACE = "Verdana"
  FILENAME = "fonts\verdana.ttf"

  BOLD = TRUE
  ITALIC = FALSE
  UNDERLINE = FALSE
  STRIKE = FALSE

  CHARSET = 1

  COLOR { 255, 0, 0 }
  ALPHA = 255
 
  LAYER
  {
    OFFSET_X = 1
    OFFSET_Y = 1
    COLOR { 0, 0, 0 }
    ALPHA = 255
  }

  LAYER
  {
    OFFSET_X = -1
    OFFSET_Y = -1
    COLOR { 0, 0, 0 }
    ALPHA = 255
  }

  LAYER
  {
    OFFSET_X = -1
    OFFSET_Y = 1
    COLOR { 0, 0, 0 }
    ALPHA = 255
  }

  LAYER
  {
    OFFSET_X = 1
    OFFSET_Y = -1
    COLOR { 0, 0, 0 }
    ALPHA = 255
  }


  LAYER
  {
    OFFSET_X = 0
    OFFSET_Y = 0
    COLOR { 255, 0, 0 }
    ALPHA = 255
  }
}

I suppose Windows doesn't antialias fonts of certain sizes. You should see antialiased edges if you make the font bigger.

Will do, I'll try and do that and see if it works, I originally tried Verdana at size 12 and it still seemed that edges were jagged, but I'll try even larger.
