Hello! I came here to ask a question that I am trying to solve since 1 week. My game is a very simple 3D world (just for learning how to work with OpenGl). Its in first person (like Half Life engine). I want to put a rectangle in the Top Left of my screen, when playing, showing whats behind me (player). How to do? Where to put? I have no idea of how to do this... Its something like a Mirror that is in my back, that i am able to see whats on my back (behind) Really thank you!

You can render to texture and texture a quad in the corner.
For rendering to textures see the tutorial at the bottom of this page:

I don''t know if it''s the best solution, but it would work just fine.

You should read what people said about this issue in the other two posts you made instead of making a third one.
