: Wann'a know how to double your frames and fix your problem? Dump GLUT and use JUST OpenGL like I do. GLUT has the advantage of the coder not having to code in a few things, but it has too many draw-backs to name, and you have found one I didn't know about. GLUT also lowers frames as mentioned earlier. Check out nehe.gamedev.net for some AWESOME text tutorials in OpenGL that don't require GLUT! A simple routine and you can put any text, ANYWHERE! Just send it a string and some X/Y coordinates.
Thanks for the info. At one time I did look at nehe.gamedev.net and didn't find what I needed. Could you be more specific about what I should look for?
What is the simple routine for putting text anywhere with just a string and x,y coordinates? If you could send sample code, I'd really appreciate it. My email address is in my profile.
