I''ve just spen the past 6 hours debugging a problem where some images appeard to be upside down while other wern''t. I check and rechecked the tga spec. I consulted other peoples code. Noting seemed to make sence as when I thought I had it correct Up I load it and a few textures were upside down. It took 5 hours to notice that the only textures up side down were text. 2 years ago I wrote some code to display text. At the time I was using a flipped image, which I''ve been using ever since. I''ve never been able to work out why new font files were always up side down and had ignored the problem. You guessed it. The font renderer was coded around an unflipped(bottom left origin) tga file I found many years ago. Turns out that quite a few other example on the net are too which is why I had assumed for so long that my code was good. I could drop their code in a presto it''s the same as mine. I spen a hour writing up a new font renderer. Most of that time was spent drawing images on paper of little squares with coordinates on each orner and cross checking every coordinate with my code''s data. So there you go, just because you(I) learnt something off a website doesn''t make it right. Chris Brodie http:\\fourth.flipcode.com
