Hi, this is my first post but i have been following this forum and nehe tutorials for a while. I have a project using SDL and OpenGL, and I'm trying to write some messages on the screen. I know I can't use SDL Surface Bliting because I'm using OpenGl. And I tried some suggestions I found over the internet about using textures with the letters, but this only works in world coordinates and not on the screen. I also tried unsing glProject and glUnproject to compute a 2d location, but it didn't worked. Could anyone help me? I can post a zip with the current code if someone wants to take a look at it. Thanks! Merry Christmas

I'm assuming you are simply trying to overlay some regular 2D text on the screen - in much the same way as a game with a HUD. If this is the case, one simple way is to create a separate pass. In that pass define a regular 2D orographic view and display the text.
