Looking for text tutorial

Hi everybody!

I am a bit confused that there’s no good tutorial how to add text information so it can be displayed while running the project. As far as I know text like FPS counter is a part of guiNode - a 2d “node” to display text information.

So I am asking fo a little help how to be able to put and text I wish there (like, for example, current camera coordinates).

Based on this info, I think it would be great to make a tutorial.

Thank you!

If you are using JMP, there is a snippet of code to display a hud text.

When on a java file in the top right corner window called “palette”, in the “JME Scene” section drag in the “Hud text” item to your java file

this code is written :

/** Write text on the screen (HUD) */


guiFont = assetManager.loadFont(“Interface/Fonts/Default.fnt”);

BitmapText helloText = new BitmapText(guiFont, false);


helloText.setText(“Hello World”);

helloText.setLocalTranslation(300, helloText.getLineHeight(), 0);


You don’t have to detach all children of course, but this is a good way to display info on screen.
