*Edit* Shortly after this post i fugured it out, i just wasnt scaling enough at first Hey this is my first post on here, im doing a uni assignment atm and I am having trouble outputting text onto my screen. Im happy enough using standard windows fonts and so i tried glfont. When i run the program however i just get a sort of blueish blended box, below is my code: I was wondering if there was a better way to do this or if you could point out my mistake. Thanks in advance //Clear back buffer glClear(GL_COLOR_BUFFER_BIT); glClearColor(0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 1.0); glEnable(GL_TEXTURE_2D); glEnable(GL_BLEND); glBlendFunc(GL_SRC_ALPHA, GL_ONE_MINUS_SRC_ALPHA); //Draw a string glColor3f(0.0F, 0.0F, 1.0F); myfont.Begin(); //scaler, xPos,yPos myfont.DrawString("Hello World!",0.01,-1.0F, 0.0F); [Edited by - Bailey on April 20, 2007 1:32:05 PM]
