FreeType C++ loading problem

28 July 2013 - 12:09 PM

I am having trouble loading fonts into freetype, everytime I load a font it returns 1 which by the documentation says "cannot open resource". I've tried putting the fonts all over my project but to no success, was wondering if anyone knew how you would go about loading in the fonts.


Here is my code:


std::cout << "Unable to load freetype library" << std::endl;

FT_Face face;
FT_Error error = FT_New_Face(k_lib, "arial.ttf", 0, &face);

std::cout << "Could not open font" << std::endl;
