You may remember my other thread about AllegroGL. Well, that went a little off topic, so for my newest problem I'm having another thread.
I've got my button drawn properly in the window now, and when I click it, I've got my ship flying around the screen and it's all fine and dandy and running at 800fps (as opposed to 24 with just Allegro). But then I tried to put some writing on the screen and I got stuck. Here's a stripped down version of the offending code:
remember to erase the color afther this, because otherwise you damage the further outputs. ciao8-)
Yes! That works! Thank you very much!
EDIT: Ah! Upon further inspection, I'd already got the GL_BLEND and GlBlendFunc set up in opengl_init(). The reason my code wasn't working is because the variable white is makecol(255,255,255) - it does not have an alpha channel. Thanky you for showing me!
