Adding Custom Fonts

Replace Font_Name and fontname with your font name (obviously)

In modtext add under Public Font_Georgia As CustomFont:

Public Font_Name As CustomFont

In Sub EngineInitFontTextures() under


' Georgia

NumTextures = NumTextures + 1

ReDim Preserve gTexture(NumTextures)

Font_Georgia.Texture.Texture = NumTextures

Font_Georgia.Texture.filepath = App.Path & FONT_PATH & "georgia.png"

LoadTexture Font_Georgia.Texture

add:


' Font Name

NumTextures = NumTextures + 1

ReDim Preserve gTexture(NumTextures)

Font_Name.Texture.Texture = NumTextures

Font_Name.Texture.filepath = App.Path & FONT_PATH & "fontname.png"

LoadTexture Font_Name.Texture

at Sub UnloadFontTextures() add:

UnloadFont Font_Name

at Sub EngineInitFontSettings() add:

LoadFontHeader Font_Name, "fontname.dat"
