I am making my first LibGdx game, and having an hard time understanding font scaling on TextButtons.
Here is a comparison between the rendering on my Kindle Fire 7 and an high resolution tablet:
I tried using the scale() method, but the result is a pixelated mess.
I've read about TrueType fonts, and I'd like to set the font size by calculating the screen density.
I've tried to create a TextButtonStyle containing a font with the following:
//Generate the font FreeTypeFontGenerator generator = new FreeTypeFontGenerator(Gdx.files.internal("fonts/Merriweather-Regular.ttf")); TextButtonStyle style = new TextButtonStyle(); FreeTypeFontParameter param = new FreeTypeFontParameter(); //Set the font size (12 as an example) param.size = 12; style.font = generator.generateFont(param); //Set the new style to the button button = new TextButton("START GAME", style);
The TextButton correctly gets the new font, BUT loses the actual button as only the text gets rendered; I guess that's because the new TextButtonStyle only contains information about the font and is otherwise empty.
I tried setting the new font to a Skin also, but only ended with further confusion; most resources I found online don't mention font rendering on TextButtons, or end up being confusing with convulted methods.
Is there a simple way to achieve what I want? Thanks.
