To help me focus on 3d programming ive always used SDL_Surface to hold my texture objects, like this SDL_Surface *texture; ... texture = SDL_LoadBMP("sometexture.bmp"); Then i just use the glTexImage2d before the rendering, and i realize this is slow but im still learning. I am now trying to get further and optimize my code, so i tryed to use the glBindTexture, well, it doesnt really like me feeding it an sdl_surface, so i tryed turning the texture into a GLuint, but then the SDL_LoadBMP command gets cranky... How can use the sdl_loadbmp and be able to bind the texture it loads?

This should work

        int LoadBmp(char* filename, GLuint* data)
SDL_Surface* bmpFile = SDL_LoadBMP(filename);

h = bmpFile->h;
w = bmpFile->w;




gluBuild2DMipmaps(GL_TEXTURE_2D,3,bmpFile->w, bmpFile->h,GL_BGR_EXT, GL_UNSIGNED_BYTE,bmpFile->pixels);


return 0;
