My current project, Deathmatch of Doom, is coming along great. Its a 3d multiplayer first person shooter with a server-client implementation and its really sweet so far. Today I just started writing the server code and it is really nice.
I wanto make it so players can chat amongst themselves. What would be the best way to get these messages and display the messages of other people like Quake 3 does or Half-life. I need to project the messages and the partially completed messages onto my 3d plane neatly. Any suggestions for a nice library that will do the trick or something of that nature?
PS: I will *NOT* use GLUT.
