Title: TGUI displays letters as blocks and rectangles
Post by: hatstrosity on 27 September 2015, 05:28:04
Hello,

So I'm trying to use TGUI and for some reason, the tgui log I make is displaying every letter of every word as a black rectangle. I've tried switching the size and font of the words, but to no avail. I also have a friend who is able to compile the exact same code and not get a blocky display, so I assume that it has to be an issue with my installation some how. Here is a picture of the problem - https://imgur.com/eQOt9lF (https://imgur.com/eQOt9lF) . The relevant tgui portion is the box in the middle left of the screen - those 5 black boxes are supposed to be the word 'Hello'. Any ideas on what could be wrong here? Thanks!

This is most likely caused by a bad graphics driver, you should try to update it.

The two other times something similar was reported (see here (https://forum.tgui.eu/index.php?topic=156.msg789) and here (https://forum.tgui.eu/index.php?topic=312.msg1637)) the outcome was that the problem was only on one pc/graphics card. So other than changing your drivers I don't think there is anything that I can recommend.
