Display text on a quad

Hello all !

How can I display dynamic text on a quad ?

Context :

What I need is to display a text (actually numbers only) on top of a small building

For example : Displaying the cash inside a bank.

The text will update every seconds.

Java AWT but, it’s kind of hard for me to find anything … :?

look for the BitmapText class

Great !

It took me a while to fully get it :wink:

However, it does something funny =S

I have a mountain in front of me

I added some “flying” BitmapText behind it

And instead of seeing the mountain blocking the Text, I see the Text through the mountain …

Is it the mountain’s or the BitmapText’s fault ?

Probably the text’s fault. Probably put it in the gui node, it always shows up as an overlay.
