You can still get good results though, here I'm just picking a nice font with some useful coloring. When drawing frames, you can see below I also get some glitching from the way it stretches the texture, I managed to fix it by altering the texture settings. The borders don't seem to have tiling at the sides which is a bit of a bummer, I might end up needing to write a bunch of rectangle drawing. All the other widgets like horizontal sliders, and in particular being able to add colors within the strings are a super helpful.
|Unity stretching the ui texture instead of tiling them :(|
I might try and get another build done for the end of the week but after that I'll be away for the holidays, so if I don't post again... Merry Christmas!
