If using font files, the OpenGL driver renders the fonts thinner than the SDL one. Is there a setting or some other thing that I can do to get back the boldness? I tried to set bold in the config file after the font names, but that way the fonts are too bold and pixelated.

Version of OpenTTD

20210222-master-mb67245d71e

Expected result

Similar font appearance as with the SDL driver.

Actual result

Thinner font appearance than with the SDL driver.

$ ./openttd -v sdl -d freetype=2,driver=1

(Btw. the mono font is missing from the debug output. :))

SDL on the left, SDL-OpenGL on the right:
opentdd_font_render

Config file snippet:

small_font = Liberation Sans
medium_font = DejaVu Sans
large_font = Liberation Serif
mono_font = Liberation Mono
small_size = 12
medium_size = 16
large_size = 26
mono_size = 14
small_aa = true
medium_aa = true
large_aa = true
mono_aa = true

System:
Fedora 33
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti
NVIDIA driver 460.39

Steps to reproduce

  1. Set the config to use font files
  2. Start OpenTTD with -v sdl
  3. Start OpenTTD with -v sdl-opengl
  4. See the difference

Heh, totally forgot about font anti-aliasing. OpenGL video backend is currently causing the 8bpp blitter to be used if you don't load any 32bpp graphics as it is faster.

Fixing that isn't hard, I just wonder whether to force a 32bpp blitter for enabled anti-alias just with OpenGL or in general.
