open GL for MFD

Postby bimal vinod » Sun Sep 17, 2017 5:07 pm

Hi all
I am relatively new to FG , I want to use open GL for displaying values on MFDs (just like we do in HUD) . Can anyone guide me to do this ?

Thanks in advance...!!

To create a MFD you should use Canvas. There is plenty of information around, specially on the wiki and the forum itself. Here are some starters:
