Right now, even if you manually pref render-mode to 0 on DX10 hardware. DirectWrite will still be on, this is because it gets turned on if it's preffed on, -or- if the render mode is D2D before the prefs are read. We should make it respect the DWrite pref in render-mode 0.

Ditto.
Plus, the font smoothing with DirectWrite is so awkward, that it actually hurts to browse the internet...
And i would like to stay with Minefield for the time beeing ;)

Disable directwrite when user preffed off D2D and not on dwrite

Can't we not create the DWriteFactory in this case?

Bas tells me that this method needs cleanup to make it more sane; file that bug, and this temporary hack is fine.
