This utility mitigates a bug in TrueType font rendering in Dwarf Fortress 0.40.xx (and some earlier versions). If you've used TrueType fonts (by pressing F12 or using a mod with TrueType on by default), you've likely noticed long lines of text in one column can overlap and "black out" the text in subsequent columns.

For more information on the bug, see

What This Does

It runs in the background and tells Dwarf Fortress to redraw its screen over and over. While this does use up a few extra CPU cycles, our testing shows no noticeable change in FPS.

How to Use It
  1. Start df_text_fixer.exe
  2. Start Dwarf Fortress
It also works if you do step #2 before step #1.
