What to do when using a font most people don't have?

Recommended Posts

If I''m using a font most people don''t have installed on their windows\fonts folder, what do I do to make it accessible to the application on another machine?

One possible solution is to use a bitmap font instead.

Another is to include that font with your project and install it with the game.

Probobly other things too but thats what I can think of right now.

Have your install program install it into their Windows/Fonts directory.

How do I do that?


Most installation programs allow you to set that up when you package your application. I use SetupFactory and I don''t have any problems.
