2D Sprite Tutorial in OpenGL - DJBlufire - May 10, 2003 02:23 AM
I'm having trouble getting started in this and I need some direction. None of the stuff on NeHe really provides exactly what I'm looking for. Can anyone recommend a good tutorial or something that demonstrates how to work with 2D images or sprites in OpenGL?
