I tried NeHe''s Bitmapped Font lesson on my Voodoo3 card. It took about 3 seconds only to render ONE character! The same program works fine on my fathers noname graphics card. I use the newest driver (version 1.05...). With outlined Fonts the whole thing works good! Can anybody help me? Thanks, NC

I've seen stuff about this other places. That bitmap font tutorial dispises Voodoo card in fullscreen for some reason, I doesn't work for me either! (I got a Voodoo3 2000)

I found a solution by myself.
To avoid this problem you have to build the font bitmaps BEFORE you go into fullscreen mode! To do that simply move the whole SETSCREENSETTINGS part to the end of the window initialization routine and it will work.

Thanks anyway for your reply...
