This weekend was good, I refactored my dynamic rendering pipeline, and now it actually works. I never could figure out what was going on before, but every so often some of the stuff being dynamically rendered was blinking (this was the best case), worst case, entire letters would disappear altogether, imagine a buffer becoming full and then dumping out the first few elements to make room for the new ones, but the new ones never came. Kinda like that... doesn't matter, it's all fixed now and works quite nicely.
Now that I am able to display some text, I got my framerate counter up, and I'm happy to see that my entire terrain is rendering at 70+ average fps.
Anyway, I'm gonna get back to work. I still have that strange UV issue with models to look at, but I may just do something else... problems like that annoy me sometimes.
