Getting the FreeType library in PS2SDK-ports working –
Several of my ongoing projects need to be moved from gsKit's FONTM support to some other font system that doesn't involve rom0:FONTM because not all consoles have this font module.
I noticed that the ps2sdk-ports collection has FreeType v2.1.9 there... but I can't seem to get it working. I'm also quite frustrated with other stuff and don't wish to spend 1 month (or 1 year, in the case of PS2ESDL) struggling with badly documented things that don't work again. -_-"
I hope that someone can tell me whether it's actually a working port, since I don't know of any homebrew program that actually used that library:
1. uLaunchELF is using its own font system.
2. OPL is using its own port of FreeType, which is a port of a newer version and I can't understand its code anyway.
If it is working, then I know at least that it's something wrong with the way I'm doing things.
But of it isn't working, it should be either fixed up or removed from the PS2SDK. Otherwise, all projects I'm working on will be postponed indefinitely as I am tired of struggling with this nearly useless SDK. I'm also running out of free time, and none of this is going to help me in my future anyway.
I've been spending the past 3 months on working on PS2 stuff, and it's basically a full-time job with no pay.
Main projects affected by this:
1. HDLoader game installer.
2. Unofficial FMCB v1.8c installer.
