I have changed private to protected so derived class can access to the protected members.

Default font note.

Important note: I have changed the default font name "TrebuchetMSBold" to "BlueHighway" according to this post as this would cause the program to crash because of using a non-existing-anymore font (font removed starting with the Dagon release because of intellectual property issues) and merged the proposed material problem fix directly into the code --xplozyph 2006/06/16 19:42 CET

Using Another Font

When I first started using this, I didn't know where to go get a font. What it is looking for is a font defined in a *.fontdef file. To create one, use LMNOpc Bitmap Font Builder. Then use the Ogre3d Tool BitmapFontBuilderTool to create a fontdef file from it.
Look in ogrenew\Tools\BitmapFontBuilderTool for the tool, and for the builder. --Scorch 20:37, 11 March 2007 (CST)

CharHeight and SpaceWidth

mCharHeight and mSpaceWidth should be float values. If one has units set to 1 = 1m, the font will be too big.
