Unable to change the color of BitmapText

Recommended Posts

I'm following the melonJS guides on space invaders and platformer.

Tried to add a HUD component with score on it. Obtained the font files from their github: https://github.com/melonjs/tutorial-platformer/tree/28425a946836e21e58e8fbc443f380b990e7f527/tutorial_step6/data/fnt


The text does show up, but it appears white, and I can't change the color on it.

This is what I've tried:

// 1
this.font = new me.BitmapText(0, 0, {
  font: "PressStart2P",
  fillStyle: "#000000",
  textAlign: "right",
  textBaseline: "bottom",

// 2
this.font.tint.setColor(255, 128, 128);

// 3
this.font.fillStyle = "#000000" (and "#000", and "black")

// 4
this.font.fillStyle = me.Color(0, 0, 0);


What am I doing wrong?
