    BItmaps

    Can I use Opengl to display existing bitmaps (such as map tiles) and if so how?

    Re: BItmaps

    Hi Judith,

    Im from staffordshire as well!

    Ive found the best way to display bitmaps is to use them as a texture on a polygon, so for example you create a square polygon the size you want the bitmap to be, then map the texture (bitmap) to the polygon.

    If you look at Nehe's texture tutorials on
    http://nehe.gamedev.net/opengl.asp

    You should get the basic idea.
