Hi Wonza,

Could you explain a bit more how you sorted out your problem, it sounds like the same thing I'm getting. I've used the example from CrashLanding but am getting a white rectangle. I'm not sure exactly where you suggested changing the scalling, etc.

Many thanks in advance,
Lee

Hi Lee,

Im at work right so I dont have access to all my code; but from memory, I did something like glScale(0.001f,0.001f, 0.001f); to get my text down to the right size, then I had to do a glTranslate to get it on my screen.

Hope this helps

Can you please post some code ? Even scaling and translating I still can't see the text.

am still struggling with this same problem. Scaling doesn't help anyway.
