Has anyone using a 3dfx Voodoo3 2000 video card had problems displaying OpenGL bitmap fonts? They''re causing my programs and/or computer to freeze up when I''m in fullscreen mode. Not sure why. Windowed mode works fine. I''ve tried using the latest drivers/3rd party drivers/original drivers that came with the hardware and none correct the problem. Interestingly, outline fonts work fine, and DirectX demos that use fonts work perfectly too. So I''m led to believe there''s some incompatibility between OpenGL and Voodoo3 2000 video cards. Can anyone back me up on this? I''d like to know if I need to invest in a new video card ($$) or I''m just not doing something right. Thanks
