I have a md2 model walking around and I want to put a colored quad under him so i do this.... <code> glPushMatrix(); glColor3f(1.0, 1.0, 0.0); glTranslatef(0.0f,-6.5f,0.0f); glScalef(10,10,10); glBegin(GL_QUADS); glVertex3f(1,0,1); glVertex3f(1,0,-1); glVertex3f(-1,0,-1); glVertex3f(-1,0,1); glEnd(); glColor3f(1.0, 1.0, 1.0); glPopMatrix(); </code> Well, the quad shows up, but it is a very dark grey color (almost black), but then when the model does a certain animation, the quad flashes a shade of brown (which is similar to my models texture). I am basically using the Opengl Game Programming, md2 loader and animator, any reason why my model would mess with my quad colors?

I think you should disable texture rendering:

glDisable (GL_TEXTURE_2D);

Also, if lighting is set up, you must either disable it or use also:


(this will make the quad's material have the same color that you've set with glColor3f).

But, if you don't want to light the quad, use:

glDisable (GL_LIGHTING);

And you can forget about materials then (I think).

Hope it helps...
