Re: Need to use Custom Font

Up until and including 4.7 you cannot use custom fonts... easily. You need to make a bitmap font, then create your own drawString function that will use the bitmap font to draw the chars to the screen. If you have 5.0 or greater then you can load your own TrueType font and use it as you would any other font.
