Problem setting up CGUITTFont

Postby tronfortytwo » Wed Nov 01, 2017 9:16 pm

I am trying to set up CGUITTFont but I get a building error.
I downloaded CGUITTFont 1.7.2 and IrrUstring.h, I added them to my project.
My system is a Debian x86_64 and my compiler is gcc 7.1.
My Irrlicht version is 1.8.4.
When I try to compile them I get:
cpp Code: Select all
tronfourtytwo@debian:~/Desktop/TatoProject/src$ make
g++ -c CGUITTFont.cpp -I/usr/include/freetype2/
CGUITTFont.cpp: In member function ‘virtual irr::video::IImage* irr::gui::CGUITTFont::createTextureFromChar(const uchar32_t&):

Thanks for your help! :D

Yeah, looks like that code is for Irrlicht 1.7.
I modified some TTF class (not sure if same as you didn't link to yours, but shouldn't matter) and you can find it at ... -micha/src
Copy the 2 CGUITTFont files (also ttf.cpp an example for using it, thought ignore the ride-side of screen when running that - that's just showing something I still need to debug).

You could also download the trunk version, which is slight update from the 1.7.2 version of the post I pointed you to (sorry for the confusion, I should have check that it didn't point to the latest version).

Here's a link to the trunk version.

Thank you both for your quick response. Using both the one from the linked repo or from trunk branch I got it to compile successfully with latest irrlicht. :D
