Do you have to install fonts (or move them to WINDOWS$/Fonts Folder) to be able to use them in blitz?
I have XP so that may be the problem. Do I need to add this to the installation of the game? Help plz

Blitz usually works fine with Fonts in the C://Windows/Fonts/ folder, however, occasionally, some do not work.

To guarantee success, Copy & Paste Font into the same folder as your program source(.bb) (or .exe) file, RENAME the font_name.TTF file to the same as the name given if you double-click and open the font and use Loadfont with this copy.

I had similar problems ages ago and I asked on here. (Threads been lost I think since the website has been revamped).

Good luck!
