In my game I need to display lots of different text so ovbiously I need to seperate myself from sdl_ttf a bit with some code. I made a function called show_fps() and then one called show_lives() but you can see having 1000 functions to show each bit of text is a bad idea. I can see how to make a function to add an item to a linked list with a string, font, size, position etc for each lump of text but theres somthing I'm not sure about. Sometimes the text will stay the same throughout but for somthing like displaying the frames per second it needs a variable for the number so that it can change each time. Now if I called my add text function I would want to be able to use variables in the string like printf does, but I have no clue how to do it. If you can think of a better way to do this / explain how you did it instead I would be very interested as well. Thanks, David
