I basically have the same problem as this guy,
except that I am trying to load a .ttf instead.
My code is very similar to that in the thread.
I don't think the thread I am refering to was ever solved, or I cannot see the solution.
Bitmaps load correctly using
something = al_load_bitmap("something.bmp");
ALLEGRO_FONT * technoid_font = NULL;
technoid_font = al_load_font("technoid.ttf",60,0);
technoid_font stays NULL.
The files do exist, I know the paths are correct because the bitmap was properly loaded from in the .zip file. I just don't know what I am doing wrong with the font file. It loaded properly from a normal folder before I started using physfs. Thanks!
