Hi,
I would like to know what I would need to do to map ttf's to be able to draw them as graphics in DirectX, I really don't want to get the DC and use textout or drawtext, because I don't want to lose the speed benefits of DirectX.  Basically, I am currently working on a stupid little program, and I need to put some text on my screen. I am runing in 640x480x256 full screen, and need to display things like score.  Any help would be appreciated.

One way would be to use bitmaps that you have previously created. Bitmaps for certain text and digits. Then you can BitBlt() whatever character is necessary. I have found that using ExtTextOut() with a DC is very quick and very usable.
