I need to convert a true type font into a list of three dimensional vertices using openGL. I looked at the NeHe tutorial, but it only creates a display list from the font and as far as I can tell it is not possible for me to extract the vertices from a display list. So how can I get the vertices? Do I have to do some weird math with the data in the font file?
