No fonts found

Hello,

since two weeks ago, I cannot anymore play simutrans because an error appears everytime when I launch the game.

It shows "Fatal error: No fonts found"  :-[ :-[ :-[

Could anyone help me with please? Two weeks without simutrans, it was a real nightmare.

Thank you in advance!

Did this coincide with an upgrade of Simutrans? If so, how did you upgrade? If not, try reinstalling.

This happens when a font is selected in the display dialog but Freetype is missing in the program file.

It may also be that the font on the system is missing when Simutrans is on removable media (single user) and different systems are used.
I have not tested this yet.

delete settings.xml

And reinstall Simutrans. 120.3 r8500 have Bugs.
The Release reupload from prissi, and this is 120.3 r8504.

This was few weeks after the upload and suddenly.
I tried to uninstall and reinstall simutrans three or four times every with the online instalator. Bizarrely, always it didn't worked and installed the r8000 version

I had found a solution today: use the OTRP v17 to play and it worked perfectly without reinstallation. All my add-ons that I use in my map stayed where they were before the bug  ;D ;D ;D

Just delete My Documetns\simutrans\settings.xml will also remove this error.

This will make your saves incompatible with current and (probably) future versions of Simutrans (standard), so I would not recommend it unless you are also wanting to use the additional OTRP features.

r8557 will revert to the default font in such a situation now.
