Hey I'm creating games on my spare time since some time ago and now I would like to create my own custom made font engine. I've looked it up, and I've realized there are some ways to go. I would like your recommendations, what you believe is a good way to create a font engine. I'd like to be able to create my own font, truetype (or some other font format) or to create bitmap fonts. It would be nice if it's reasonably fast. Also, I have a hard time finding good samples on this topic. Do you have any links to share? I'm using DirectDraw right now, but I gladly receive samples and help on Direct3D methods too, since I'm planing to convert later. Thanks
