Do DX9 Fonts run any faster than DX8 fonts now? Before DX8 fonts ran extrememly slow. I was hoping that DX9 fonts now use textured quads to render their fonts, or something that is more efficient. Anyone know if they improved them? Carradine

i don''t think it has been improved, you can use CD3DFont located on the common files directory though, it''s quite fast,

I am using a textured quad method someone on these forums developed, I get no speed slwodown from using that compared to a massive speed slowdown with ID3DXFont.
