I have this texture, it consists of an 8x8 grid of slightly different cloud puffs. For my particles I'm supposed to randomly assign each new particle one of the different puffs randomly. I'm trying to use GL_ARB_point_sprite, but when using this feature, it seems to always always use texture coords 0.0 to 1.0, and there is no way for me to specify "No, use 0.125,0.125 to 0.25,0.25". Its even ignoring the texture matrix.
glScalef(0.125f, 0.125f, 1.0f);
glTranslatef(0.125f, 0.25f, 1.0f);
has no affect at all. Any ideas?

AFAIK there is no way of specifing other texturecoordinates for point sprites. There are also lots of other restrictions on point sprites. Because of this most people use billboarded quads for particle rendering.

Well, where there isn't a normal way, theres always ARBfp.

PARAM OFFSET = program.local[0];
PARAM SIZE = program.local[1];
MAD COORD, SIZE, fragment.texcoord[0], OFFSET;
TEX TEXCLR, COORD, texture[0], 2D;
MUL result.color, TEXCLR, fragment.color.primary;
