Set up the projection for 2D drawing?

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to figure out how to set up the projection for 2D drawing. I know to use glOrtho, but I'm wondering how I can set up the projection so that (-100.0,-100.0) is the top-left corner of the screen, and (100.0,100.0) is the bottom-right corner of the screen. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Did you look at the [url="http://www.opengl.org/sdk/docs/man/xhtml/glOrtho.xml"]documentation [/url]for glOrtho? Should be pretty self explanatory.

glOrtho(-100, 100, 100, -100, near, far) should be what you want.

That doesn't seem to be working though. I don't know if I'm drawing incorrectly or what, but my rectangle is definitely not showing up where it's supposed to. In fact, it's not showing up at all.

[b]Edit:[/b] Figured it out. Turned out I had back-face culling on. No idea why.
