Thanks. Looks like using the underlying fontconfig library shouldn't be a problem.

Thanks everyone, I've now implemented it so you can either give the name of a font known to the system or a pathname to a .ttf. Additionally, for system fonts, it tries to find a pre-styled version if you specify bold and/or italic, which gives better results.

I could take a stab at this. I looked in MESS SVN and didn't see any revisions regarding this. Did I miss it?

There hadn't been a formal MAME sync lately, I just brought the changes over.

Thanks.
Is requiring sdl_ttf on the Mac an option?
Or would you prefer no additional dependancies?

I'd prefer to minimize dependencies and use the Core services if at all possible.

OT, but Fedora 14 uses cairo-1.10 which presents some ugly rendering bugs to Gnome (font rendering) and Firefox (animated GIF issues). I found a fix to downgrade back to Fedora 13 cairo-1.8 that "fixes" these issues.

Yup, there's an official bug on it too, but no solution yet.
