Hello, I am working on a custom camera for a project, it is a multiple people project so I need to provide debug tools for my camera.
My camera needs to show different zones in the editor like this :
To achieved this result I simply implemented the
_draw() function in my custom Camera2DFollowing class which inherits from Camera2D, I used the
Doing so I needed to add a font for the zones labels “Ease zone” and “Dead zone”, I did the following :
pa_debug_font = DynamicFont.new()
pa_debug_font.font_data = load(pa_debug_font_path)
pa_debug_font.font_data.antialiased = false
pa_debug_font.size = 12
My problem is that if I change
pa_debug_font.font_data.antialiased to true the result is unreadable.
I therefore tweaked a bit my project to figure out what I could do to improve that, it appears
DynamicFontData.antialiased works well if the font is in front of a white background but does terrible if not.
My question is as follow : do you know a way that could improve the render of text antialiasing in my project and for this specific case ?
Thank you a lot
Edit1 : I tried changing the font and nothing changed
Edit2 : I tried changing the
stretch mode in project settings and nothing changed
Does the same thing happen with different fonts?

Well I tried with the default godot font (idk what it is) and the one on the pictures is Arial

So it does happen with other fonts. Maybe it’s being stretched weird?
Project > Project Settings > Display > Window > Stretch > Mode try launching it in all three modes and see if anyone gives you a nice looking font.

Well I tried all three mode and nothing seems to change

My suggestions would be to play with the
outline_color properties. It’s worth a shot to test whether setting
use_filter does anything. Or to stick the text in a
Labelnode with a transparent background and see if that fixes the issue.
