  Slick Strings..  (Read 878 times)

So, I've been messing around with slick, and I'm getting the gist of it all. However, the string drawing seems to be a bit of a problem for me.
I tried using graphics.drawString, and it works fine, but there doesn't seem to be a way to edit the fonts. I tried graphics.setFont, but it told me fonts are inapplicable for it. So, then I looked up trueTypeFont, and it was deprecated. I went on to AngelCodeFont, and you have to import images containing fonts, but to do this you have to do a number of other things, which is a bit of overkill seeing as I simply want to use Arial.

Is there really no other simple way to change fonts in Slick?

Use TrueTypeFont (deprecated doesn't matter too much in this case) or use UnicodeFont

Cheers,
