    Question point sprites, help please...

    hi, i have been struggling with point sprites for a long time here are my vertex and fragment shaders
    Code :
    	const char *fshader =
    	        "#version 430 core\n"
    	        "uniform sampler2D tex1;\n"
    	        "out vec4 color;\n"
    	        "void main(void)\n"
    	        "    color = texture2D(tex1, gl_PointCoord);\n"
    	const char *vshader =
    	        "#version 430 core\n"
    	        "layout (location = 0) in vec4 vertices;\n"
    	        "void main(void)\n"
    		"    gl_PointSize = 60;\n"
    	        "    gl_Position = vertices;\n"
    i set up the texture by loading it with SOIL. then i use glUniform1i to set the sampler2D variable to 1 and then i make the activetexture unit 1 by glActiveTexture(GL_TEXTURE1) and bind the image to it.
    heres my display function
    Code :
    void display ()
    	glClear (GL_COLOR_BUFFER_BIT);
    	glBindVertexArray (vao);
    	glDrawArrays (GL_POINTS, 0, 4);
    thanks much in advance

    Have a look at the shader at the top of
    Remember to set
    glPointParameterf(GL_POINT_FADE_THRESHOLD_SIZE, point_fade_treshold_size);
