    Bitmap fonts and lightning?

    I have read over a few tutorials and everything but the text wont show up. I have a seen that has lighting and textures enabled. Do I have to shut those off to display bitmap text? Any ideas?

    You have to disable lighting.

    Yeah, disable lighting, and only enable blending if your texture has an alpha channel.

    I want lighting in my scene, do I just disable it to draw the fonts then enabled it again?
