faint TT fonts

Thanks, Frank. I tried playing w/ the ANTIALIAS, and if I make it FALSE, I
get no arrows at all. I also upped the freetype to the latest. If you look
at the attached image of the arrows alone, there are even strange black line
artifacts off the coasts. This is a showstopper, and I'm not quite sure how
to forge ahead.
COLOR 0 0 0
OFFSET 2 -9
EXPRESSION ([v%STEP_TIME%] >= 1.5)
Is there any chance that this target box doesn't understand the .ttf as well
as the box where I didn't see any problems?
Thanks for all your help.
