Font Problem in Cocos Creator 2.1.1

Font Problem in Cocos Creator 2.1.1
0

Hello!

I’m trying to upgrade my app to Cocos Creator 2.1.1.

One major issue is that the fonts (TTF) don’t seem to load anymore.

The related error message seems to be:

Simulator: JS: [WARN]: Download Font [ "Envy Code R_LABEL" ] failed, using Arial or system default font instead

(Find the entire log below.)

As you can see in the picture, I started a fresh ‘Hello World’ example project from CC 2.1.1, and I simply tried to change the font. I dragged the “Envy Code R.ttf” into the editor. It DOES look correct in the preview, but during runtime the error message appears and the font falls back to Arial.

Here is the project as a .zip file:

Any hints would be appreciated, thanks alot!

(Oddly, this problem persists upon freshly installing Cocos Creator 2.1.1 and creating a new, empty “Hello World” project.)

My hunch is that the “_LABEL” is added to the font’s name for downloading, which is why the download fails. But I’d love to get some feedback on this…

I download your project and rename the font to ‘Envy Code R_LABEL’, but I can not find any warning about download font failed at 2.1.1 or 2.1.2

you can check if that is your network problem, because the _timeout property in ‘font-loader.js’ is 3000.
if your download time is large than 3s, your will see this warning and the engine will give up the download and use a default font.

Hello!

I did some further experimentation – the problem for me exists only in Simulator Preview, not in Browser Preview:

Renaming the font (+ “_LABEL”) and also duplicating it (with a second version +"_LABEL") doesn’t help either…

I did take a look at “font-loader.js”, but _timeout is set to 60000 already.

Any ideas on this would be much appreciated. Thanks alot!

@Big_Bear if you could take a second look, that would be perfect. Thanks!

(Were you able to reproduce the problem?)

I did not miss that issue on Simulator Preview at 2.1.2

I’m sorry to ask again – but the problem persists, and it currrently breaks my app.

I also tried to completely remove CC, to no success.

Thanks, I’ll give it a try immediately. :slight_smile:
