By bitmapped font engine he means he is manually outputting each character from a stored image.

I don't have any specific solutions (not a heavy DirectX user), but the problem you are running into is the left to right vs. right to left rendering. Windows supports both, but you need to tell it to (just like some Asian languages need the imemode set to view properly).

In DirectX I believe you need to look at the RightToLeftReading part of DrawTextFormat. Hope that is enough information to find what you are looking for.

thanx for answering but bitmapped font engin is not a solution for arabic language coz the letters are attached . and yes my problem is in left to right coz the letters are written flipped , and there is no RightToLeftReading thing when using 3D text coz we r not drawing it as if we do in font.drawtext in 2d font drawing
