1  Java Game APIs & Engines / Java 2D / Re: Slick Text in LWJGL on: 2013-05-09 15:25:46
Thank you. I never thought about the possibility of using a bitmap.

I used Unicode, because i need at least the German umlauts ä, ü, ö and ß, but I can include them in the fontmap, too.
2  Java Game APIs & Engines / Java 2D / Slick Text in LWJGL on: 2013-05-09 12:32:44
Hello. I'm new to Java 2d game programming with OpenGL, so I have to stick to tutorials becaus I don't understand all of the correlations yet. I've allready successfully successfully implemented JBox2D in my game but I've got a problem:

I try to display text with the Slick library:
1  
private UnicodeFont font;

1  
2  
3  
4  
5  
6  
7  
8  
9  
Font fo = new Font("Times New Roman", Font.BOLD, 18);
font = new UnicodeFont(fo);
font.getEffects().add(new ColorEffect(Color.white));
font.addAsciiGlyphs();
try {
   font.loadGlyphs();
} catch (SlickException e) {
   e.printStackTrace();
}


and in the Draw method in the game loop:
1  
font.drawString(0, 0, "Test");


This works fine, but the text is upside down. I know, that I can fix this by changing
1  
GL11.glOrtho(0, GameSettings.resolutionX, 0, GameSettings.resolutionY, 1, -1);

to
1  
GL11.glOrtho(0, GameSettings.resolutionX, GameSettings.resolutionY, 0, 1, -1);

in my openGL initialization.

But this does not help, because now the textures and physics are upside down. I can solve this by simply draw the textures upside down, but this does not help for the physics.

Thanks for your help.
