Greetings,

So... i'm making a retro dungeon crawler game and to make things faster, cleartype obviously ruins the retro feeling of all because it makes the fonts soft. So, i tried turning off cleartype but it doesn't work. So i put non-cleartype fonts (System, MS Serif, the RM2K3 font) and how surprising... RMVX Ace doesn't support non-cleartype fonts. This is the error i get:

Program D:\Steam Library\SteamApps\sgitcwttd\YDEH\Game.exe

This application has requested the runtime to terminate it in an unusual way.

Please contact the the application's support team for more information.

... And that's what i'm doing right now. Please tell me there is a solution -_-

Regards,

Beelzebub InvariableZ

RGSS does neither support bitmap fonts (aka raster fonts) nor ClearType (I think you're confusing it with TrueType).

But there is another kind of bitmap font (bitmap means RGSS bitmaps here). Here is a somewhat old script that might work with VXA. Maybe there is a newer or better one by now.

Edit: This script should work with VXA.

I'm not sure the error means what you think - can you tell us how you tried to change the font? It might be that you used the wrong way to change fonts...

The error message means the RGSS is doing something wrong and not the user. It allows using bitmap fonts, but is unable to draw them. Another error that'll never be fixed.

@Cremnophobia: Please do not assume things. A lot of errors have been fixed, especially when the multilanguage-version of Ace was made, but Degica can only fix errors if they get correct, reproducable reports.


@OP: please post what you have done when you changed the font, and a screenshot of any error messages (simply typing them in can distort those messages).

You're assuming OP is doing something wrong. Why don't you try it out by yourself?

Font.default_name = 'MS Serif'Here's your reproducible error report.

@Cremnophobia: Uh, well, sorry... i don't know too much about fonts xD 

Hmm... if the error can't be fixed, then... well, what else, i'll use the script. But for now i prefer not to make a whole SFont image

@Andar:

@cremnophobia, please be a little less antagonistic. It was a valid question, which could easily have been answered by the OP. No need to get all up in arms about it.
