The original code was:

Code: Select all
FGTextLayer::setFontName(const string &name)
  _font_name = name + ".txf";

Can you change the new code from "ttf" to "txf"? I just want to see if the font still works as is. If so, the font finding code can simply be modified to search for "ttf" first, and then "txf" second. Note that the led.txf font was introduced by Curt in 2002. This should still work.

Ok, give me some time. I thought of doing something like that but it wasn't critical enough for what I'm doing to do that. But give me a bit of time and I'll make the change.
