There must be an error in the lesson 13 code concerning bitmap fonts. Starting the program in window mode works fine but it crashes when switching to fullscreen mode or starting in fullscreen. Does somebody noticed the same problem? Perhaps it''s all about my graphic board (voodoo3). Could someone please look through the lesson code, try starting it in fullscreen and tell whether he gets a crash, too, or not! Perhaps one cannot use the windows fonts in fullscreen mode?!

I was just about to ask the same question! I have also Voodoo3 and it crashes. If I hold ESCAPE down about twenty seconds then it exits, but it doesnt draw anything.
edit:
Couldn't get it work. It's the glCallLists call that takes too long time and caused also other problems (my terrain was rendered every second frame wrong???).

I decided to use the wglUseFontOutlines. I can do a lot more with it. There's also article about it on MSDN:

I have a Vodoo three and I hate it so much, when the WTC fell down I was wishing the makers of Vodoo worked in that building. It doesn''t support evironment mapping on my computer, and when it is in full screen mode, it blinks and minimizes constantly. I am working on getting a new video card, I suggest you guys do the same...

Same problem with same tutorial with same voodoo 3. There's a comparison of various graphics cards capabilities here. I sympathise with Drizzt DoUrden - but Voodoo were assimilated by NVidia a while ago.

Thanks for the tip mSparks.
