hi there

I'm trying to find more fonts to glut besides the 2 ROMAN fonts that come built-in.
The only other fonts I found were for X-Windows.
Are there any other fonts I can use in glut in MS-windows (I'm using glutStrokeCharacter).

And another thing, What's the diiferce between "Stroke Charachters" to "Bitmap Characters" ?

thanx.

You can not add any new fonts to GLUT, but there are other ways to put text on the screen. Look at nehe.gamedev.net has tutors on diffrent ways to put text on the screen.


Bitmap - text made up from a image
Stroke - text made up from vectors
