Hmmmm. I wonder if you used an 81pt font and scaled it down what that would look like?

You are right, I had forgotten how clever we were :-). So either by specifying  a much larger font size and scaling between 1 & > 1, or by having a normal font but scaling it up so that the final size is the equivalent of > 80pt font, then it should end up with outlines and everything is great (but of course FPS will degrade).
