Font outline disappears when anti-aliasing is turned off (DEF-3955)(#3116)(SOLVED)

#1

My pixel font looks best without anti-aliasing but the outline vanished when I uncheck the anti-alias box in the font properties.

Is this a feature or a “feature”?

Good question. We’re releasing an update to how fonts render to also re-enable font shadows. @jhonny.goransson has been working on this feature and should perhaps be able to answer.

The resource compiler only generates outline and shadow data to the glyph bitmaps if the antialias flag is set. I don’t really know why, but I can experiment a bit with it tomorrow and see what happens if I just skip it :slight_smile:

Any news on this issue? Can’t have an outlined text in a pixel art game other than making bitmap fonts right now.

@jhonny.goransson do we have any ideas here? Anything that can be done to fix this?
