How do you all deal with the spacing differences on fonts, between capital and lowercase.

When I load in C2, I see this a lot:

Thi s i s a Te s t
Certain letters push the width out a lot, and lower case letter begin to look off. Adjusting the char spacing makes it worse because then some letters look perfectly spaced, but other are bunched up.

Is the only solution to start with a monospaced font to begin with?

Are you implementing the full solution with the image file and the code to set up the various sizes? My sample file shows how to do this.

@blackhornet

This program is AMAZING! I've been struggling with fonts for a long while, thanks for making this.

@firebelly

On the first post there's an example, you have to set an array to load each character and set the character spacing accordingly. The example makes it so much easier.

Does anyone else get "SpriteFont+ Failure: ReferenceError: JQuery is not defined..." on android device? It works fine on PC.
Check out my games on Google Play:
BEAST ATTACK (1,000,000+ downloads!)

I think this was reported but the author hasn't been online for a while. You don't need to use SpirteFont+, just use the built in SpriteFont and setup using the instructions on the first post of this thread. There is also a tutorial someone wrote.
