Darken a font globally with ttfauntohint ?

We have a sans serif font pair where the upright and italics match on Quartz but on any Windows environment the Italic is way too light compared to the upright, is there anyway to make it render bolder with ttfautohint ?

    Actually please ignore this question, I resolved it by changing the hinting algorithm used.

    What was making it too light, and which option fixed it, exactly? :)

    I was exporting straight from Glyphs app, which for whatever reason wasn't producing a nice autohint, I then ran the fonts through ttfautohint (an older version) with `-w G` option, which I understand is now `-a qsq`
