Greetings Peoples, Besides WOTSIT, does anyone know where I can get an actual library to load TrueType fonts and convert them to a graphic file format ( i.e. tga ).. I have a very specialized need and all the programs I''ve seen to date cannot accomplish my goal. I''d like to write a little utility to do what it is I need, but I''m not really willing to write the whole set of functions as I don''t need it THAT bad.. hmm, ohh well.. any help would greatly be appreciated.. Thanks.. bosco() -- leader of the free world .. or something ..

I''m not sure if this is what you''re looking for, but I created a freeware application called Bitmap Font Builder. It creates textures out of the fonts installed on your computer that can be used to replace the font textures that NeHe''s tutorial code use.

If you''re interested, it''s available from http://www.lmnopc.com/

[ NOT LOOKING FOR A PROGRAM - A LIBRARY or SET OF FUNCTIONS!! ]

Hmm, ok not to be rude, but I specifically asked for a library or set of functions.. No programs.. And no it''s not what I''m looking for.. I tested it once before.. Remember??


Thanks though,
