Do anyone know how to do nice outline font in java like the one you can see in for instance flash and photoshop. Currently I'm using something like this:
    if (outline)
    {
        m_g2d.setColor(outlineColor);
        m_g2d.drawString(text, -1, 0);
        m_g2d.drawString(text, 1, 0);
        m_g2d.drawString(text, 0, -1);
        m_g2d.drawString(text, 0, 1);
    }

    m_g2d.setColor(color);
    m_g2d.drawString(text, 0, 0);

I have also tried approaches similar to this: http://www.java2s.com/Code/Java/2D-Graphics-GUI/OutlineFontpaint.htm But neither produces a nice and clean outline text. Lizard
