I have a few questions about Lemur's BitmapFont

  • When I zoom in on the font I can see the black block behind it,Was that expected?

  • Lemur fonts use bitmap images and when I zoom in the fonts get fuzzy what’s the best way to fix it?

BitMapFont is not a Lemur class, it is a JME class that is used by JME’s stock BitMapText and also gets re-used by most of JME’s gui libraries (like lemur)

I do not think that should be happening if you are using lemur’s Label.
It looks like your blue “Hello, World” text is actually being rendered using JME’s stock BitMapText class, but that’s just a guess based on the issue your having and the fact it doesn’t look like a lemur label. If so, then you need to set the blend mode to alpha and give the BitMapText an alphaDiscardThreshold value.

This is related to the image size of the BitMap font’s png file. Just like with texturing 3d objects, a higher resolution texture will produce less aliasing, and a lower resolution texture will cause more aliasing especially when viewed at very close distances.

Fonts shouldn’t do this in Lemur (though they will do this in JME). Lemur automatically gives fonts an alphaDiscardThreshold as I recall.

Is this in the 3D scene or in the guiNode? …because it especially shouldn’t happen in the guiNode. In the 3D scene there can be some additional things to do to fix these z-sorting issues.

For a deeper explanation: Alpha/Transparency Sorting, Your Z-buffer, and You

Use higher resolution fonts.

This is in GuiNode


I don’t know what the issue is. Something is messed up with JME, though.

…even regular JME BItmapText would do this.

I remember sometimes on some platforms, JME users used to be able to get the guiNode to sort backwards. I don’t remember how that bug was triggered or if it still exists.
