Hello 3d gurus !
I need something like a 3D Opengl Text display and effects ,
with fonts (vector and/ord bitmaped ) , eventually with textured fonts and so on ...

Is there something like that out there ? anybody know a lib ?

I've found something at romka.demonews.com but unfortunatly, the author can't be joined !! (too busy maybe)

Please, help

Thank you very much
Best regards
Guy

There is an article on this opengl.org site:

Have a brief look at
http://nehe.gamedev.net.

Tutorial 13 and 14 might be what you are looking for I implemented them in my app. It is a very good tutorial which gives you an idea on what to do. It works with windows only.

Cheers,

Martin
