I am trying to implement the freetype font method shown in
with some of my own code. I am using Windows 7 and Codeblocks with MinGW.
The issue I am running into is that when I try to call
I get a popup box saying "This application has requested runtime to terminate it in an unusual way." It then immediately crashes.
There's a decent chance I'm encountering a problem with the below because I don't have the file setup right but I don't know. I downloaded "usuzv2i.ttf" and put it in my active directory.
// This Is Where We Load In The Font Information From The File.
// Of All The Places Where The Code Might Die, This Is The Most Likely,
// As FT_New_Face Will Fail If The Font File Does Not Exist Or Is Somehow Broken.
if (FT_New_Face( library, fname, 0, &face ))
throw std::runtime_error("FT_New_Face failed (there is probably a problem with your font file)");
