Unity4 fonts
« on: August 24, 2012, 03:12:48 AM »
Hi,

Now that Unity4 is out in beta, are you planning to take a look at the new awesome font system they're using and maybe add it to use in NGUI ?

Thanks.

I'm not sure if they expose enough to be able to use it in NGUI, but if they do, it should absolutely leverage the system - it would be great to get away from bitmap fonts. :)

Nice !

Does that mean we won't need freaking font atlas anymore ? :D

Pleeeeeease let this be true!  I'm going to subscribe to this thread, hoping that as soon as Mook finds out, he posts here.  This would be brilliant for Asian languages.  Plus I'm trying to go as atlas-free as I can.
