I've just dusted off some old code for the beginnings of a game; but I've found that some of the graphics don't work anymore. In particular, al_draw_text and al_draw_bitmap_region don't seem to do anything. Whereas the drawing primitives, al_draw_filled_rectangle, et al, still seem to work.
Has something changed in allegro which could cause my code to break like this? I'm currently using allegro 5.1.2, and mingw 4.7.0; I think previously I had allegro 5.0.3, or something like that.
It's suspicious that the drawing function which rely on loading data files are the ones that have stopped working... but al_load_font and al_load_bitmap both return non-null values, so I assume the data is still loading ok.
