How to go about rendering overlay for game screen

Recommended Posts

What methods are people using to render their game screen? e.g. unit icons, build buttons, ect like warcraft series, TA ect. I haven't jumped into this yet, but was looking for ideas or is everyone using the same method. I am thinking about using the stencil buffer? or is that overkill. Thanks

I'm just rendering transparent textured 2D graphics, like quads, triangles, etc ))))
I don't use stencil, because I use stencil shadows in my game code, so, I'd need to clear stencil buffer to use stencil on-screen graphics. That's one of the reasons, why I don't use stencil.
