if you are getting low fps and you aren't rendering the TTF's on the fly, it
sounds like you need to make sure all your surfaces are in the same format
as the screen so SDL doesnt have to do on the fly conversion every frame

check out SDL_DisplayFormat and SDL_DisplayFormatAlpha (if you are using

Well, I don't catch the diffrence beetwen your solution and my code. I
actually convert TTF to bitmaps in application initialization - class TFont
loads TTF in constructor, creates bitmaps and close TTF. I included this
code in my previous e-mail (fontman.cpp and fontman.h) - take a look ;)
