I even tried running through the .net library of available font families, and I noted several ones that were in my font folder, but did not show up, Trajan Pro was among them.
The code I used to show font family (in a winforms project, not xna):
Dim family As FontFamily For Each family In FontFamily.Families debug.Print(family.Name) Next
Does anyone know how visual studio/XNA loads in these fonts? Is there any way I can make this work? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
