How would I go about drawing 2D graphics in a 3D viewpoint in DX8? I know you can use the DrawText funtion, but is there any way to get a DC from the device like you could pre DX8 using directdraw first? Thanks, Manteau

Okay....

Just seen the article on the front page on how to do it.

Is this the only way?

Creating a texture then applying that to a polygon in front of the viewpoint?

Cheers,
Manteau
