    OpenGL and text

    Can someone tell me how to display text on the screen in OpenGL? I 'm using 2d mode, so it doesn't need to be 3dimensional text.

    its called set the far z plane to 1.0 and the near to 0.001 and draw 2D stuff??!??!! whats the deal? use polygons + textures and transparency to display 2D objects.

    Or you could do some sneaky rendering of 3D objects and then display them as 2D..hehe...
