Chess and OpenGL

12 March 2013 - 04:32 PM

Hi guys,

I am trying to figure out how best to place pieces on a chessboard I created in opengl. Are there any tutorials anyone can point me to? Or just an explanation, I would like to figure it out on my own, just some pointers about how best to do this.


Its is a 3d chessboard that I have created in opengl already, and I have also exported my pieces from 3dsmax. but how do I display the board on the screen as well as specify the coordinates of the board so that each chesspiece can be on the centre of the square it has to be on?


Any help will be appreciated pls guys. I'm lost here.
