           GL11.glPushMatrix();
         GL11.glColor4f(r, g, b, a);
         TextureHandler.font.bind();
           GL11.glBegin(GL11.GL_QUADS);
           GL11.glTexCoord2f(xx, yy); GL11.glVertex2f(xd, y);
           GL11.glTexCoord2f(xx + 10, yy); GL11.glVertex2f(xd+20, y);
           GL11.glTexCoord2f(xx + 10, yy + 16); GL11.glVertex2f(xd+20, y+32);
           GL11.glTexCoord2f(xx, yy + 16); GL11.glVertex2f(xd, y+32);
           GL11.glEnd();
           GL11.glPopMatrix();
      }
   }
}


It renders some white bars but not the font or words... I am struggling to see where i've gone wrong...

Performance tips:
  • Reduce the calls to glBegin/glEnd by only calling it once outside your loop. If you use it for every character in a string, you will very quickly run into performance problems.
  • Same for binding textures; no point in doing them every iteration. Instead; call it once at the beginning of your method and (if you don't already) cache the last bound texture to minimize redundant calls to glBindTexture.
  • Ideally use vertex arrays or VBOs to further improve performance.
  • Don't push/pop matrices when it's not necessary.
