I''ve got a strange question, I was hoping some knowledgeable person here could point me in the right direction. I need to display text on the screen while a game is running, however the code that displays the text would not be part of the game. A good example of this would be the Fraps utility www.fraps.com . This utility displays the frames per second of any directx or opengl game however fraps is not part of the game. It is a utility that runs from windows that counts the fps and then displays the number on top of the game display. I need to display a number on top of the game screen. I''m unsure of what method I would use to do that. Would I use directx, or is there another way to do it? Thanks for all your help. Life is a toilet. As soon as you get caught up, someone flushes you again.
