I wonder if anyone can help me out. I'm trying to display a set of bones which are stored in the Serious Sam ascii format. The file format looks like this: BONES 4 { NAME "Chest"; PARENT "MidTorso"; LENGTH 0.257562; { 1,3.77454e-012,3.02441e-011,2.2423e-020, 0,0.992302,-0.123842,2.31046e-011, -3.04787e-011,0.123842,0.992302,-0.182372; } NAME "MidTorso"; PARENT "LowerTorso"; LENGTH 0.182372; { 1,6.3587e-013,1.02056e-011,-4.29551e-020, 0,0.998065,-0.0621855,3.23469e-009, -1.02254e-011,0.0621855,0.998065,-0.108716; } NAME "LowerTorso"; PARENT "Pelvis"; LENGTH 0.108716; { 1,2.35184e-010,2.53293e-012,3.02068e-021, 0,0.0107694,-0.999942,0, -2.35198e-010,0.999942,0.0107694,-0.152019; } NAME "Pelvis"; PARENT ""; LENGTH 0.152019; { 1,0,-4.58055e-012,2.73614e-008, 0,1,0,1.16604, 4.58055e-012,0,1,0.0936481; } According to the spec, the bone posistions are stored in the standard Opengl matrix format, with the last row omitted since it's assumed to be 0,0,0,1; How would I draw the bones once I have them loaded in? Any insights appreciated.:)

It looks like you've got everything you'd want - the 12 values look like they show position and orientation. You've even got a bone length, which isn't really necessary.

Just draw some lines based on the info you've got.
