Font displayed incorrectly
« on: February 22, 2016, 02:00:26 PM »
I put together a PC to put in my arcade machine, started using Attractmode, and I ran into a problem with fonts in Attractmode for some reason.

In the main menu the text is turned into blocks, but if I enter another menu, like settings, the fonts displays correctly. I tried changing fonts and deleting my attract.cfg, but neither fixed the problem.

I saw another user, matthewj, had the same problem, but he didn't mention how he fixed it.
This is his picture, which is what my main menu looks exactly like too.


My PC Specs:
Windows XP Service Pack 3
CRT Emudriver drivers (for Groovymame)

So I was wondering if anyone here might know what could be causing this.

I have the exact same setup and the exact same problem. I'm going to try the new beta crt emudriver this weekend with a fresh install of windows 7 and see if that helps.

...Yep that fixed it. The font issue seems to be a problem with the older crtemudrivers. Upgrade to 2.0 and you're golden.
