Font woes

Post by asciimonster » Mon Jan 19, 2009 7:44 pm

After a crash my fonts went all weird on me. They are really illegible.

Does anybody have a way to reset the font without using the menu.
This is because... I can't read the menu anymore... :|

Help! :(

Rename your configuration file and see if that fixes the problem. If not, then we'll need more information if you want help. (Such as operating system, game version, video card, driver version, and a screenshot of the problem)

In case the default configuration file (generated when you rename/remove your current file) still causes this issue, try to add the following line into your configuration file:

Code: Select all

set useBitmapFontRenderer 1
This disables font rendering via texture meachanism. Even if this is working for you, I can't tell you why this issue appeared on your system...*shrug*

Renaming the config file worked. It must have gone belly-up

Thanks
