I was wondering how I can display 2d sprites over the scene. For example, drawing a compas in the corner of the screen. Basically I don''t like the idea of having to make the bitmap in 3d space, and constantly shift it in 3d space so it stays in the same place relative to the camera, I think that is a really cheap, gimmicky way to do so. I wan''t to know if its possible to load a bmp, and possily bitblt it over the drawing buffer, or something so that I don''t have to do what I mentioned above. Any help would be appriciated. Thanks
