Making your own font/foreground-background color?
I'm making a game. (I know... isn't everyone?) This game so far uses an image containing the first 256 ASCII characters. I've been drawing them to the screen with a buffer, using the background color successfully. But now I want the actual letters, not just the transparent space, to be colored.
There are two options for me here. Either I make my own font, which may be prohibitively hard, or I turn all of the pixels not transparent to the new color. So my question is which one would work, and how to do it.
