    How do I flip upside down fonts in FTGL

    I just use FTGL to use it in my app.
    I want to use the version FTBufferFont to render font but it renders in the wrong way.
    The font(texture?buffer?) is flipped in the wrong axis.

    I want to use this kind of orthographic settings:

    Code :
        void enable2D(int w, int h)
            winWidth = w;
            winHeight = h;
            glViewport(0, 0, w, h);
            //I don't even want to swap the 3rd and 4th param
            //because I like to retain the top-left as the origin
            glOrtho(0, w, h, 0, 0, +1);

    I render the font like this:

    Code :
        //No pushing and popping of matrices
        //No translation
        font.Render("Hello World!", -1, position, spacing, FTGL::RenderMode::RENDER_FRONT);

    On the other forums, they said, just scaled the y-axis down to -1, but it wont work in mine. Example:

    font is above the screen

    I can't see relevant problem like in mine in google so I decide to ask this here again.

    How can I invert texture's y-axis without modifying its source code ? (assume its read only)
