Has this (http://www.jmonkeyengine.com/jmeforum/index.php?topic=3413.msg26618#msg26618) been added to jme? I noticed that this post was from 2 years ago and was wondering if someone added it or something similar under a different name. Is there another more common way to add truetype text to a 3d scene? All I’ve seen are ortho / Font3d.
Ah I see, some work has been done to Font3d/Text3d although there still seem to be some issues with those classes. I was encountering problems when trying to load >100 font3d + text3d objects until I realized that Font3d was taking up a ton of memory. Now I load just one font3d and tons of text3ds with no framerate dips. I still get some errors/warnings from the font3d object when I create it, but I see that others are getting the same errors.
