I'm making a 2d openGL RTS game with lwjgl. Everything is good so far, but I want to implement the fog of war.
I thought of alphamapping the units of the localplayer by blending them. I already made this alpha map effect with slick2D, but I am quite new to openGL and can't figure out to make this.
But there are two problems. I don't want to use textures for the "revealing map action" of a unit, instead I want to draw circles with individual radii. The second problem is, that the map is would only be revealed temporarly. If they move further, the map would be black with this solution. Instead it should be 50% transparent or something like that. YOu all know how fog of war works
Please help me
