hi, what is the best way to texture a cube using a bmp image? I would like to apply this image on each face. Should I use the triangle strip?

use a series of quads.. if your go to nehe.gamedev.net and have a look at tutorial number 6, this shows a simple way to texture a cube. which leads nicely to teh later toturials showinf lighting and blending.

thank you!!

I can see the code but it duplicates points. I would like to use a minimum of points. That''s why I would like use ''triangle strip'' method.

thanks

Just make it work first. If you don''t know how to do texture mapping then triangle strips are a bit further down the road.
