Well, turns out that even if I could get this working with Apple’s NSOpenGLView, that I can’t superimpose a button on top of such a view.  So…I will be forced to do my own GUI setup.  I can’t say I’m surprised, but it’s certainly something I wish I didn’t have to do.  Fortunately, I have parts of the Cocoa API to help me out.

First up, however, is to fix texture loading issues.  Who’d have thought that reading in texture data would be so complicated and convoluted?  Oi.  I digress.  Onto GUI programming!

    Good luck Kyle! It sounds like you’re building this thing from the ground up. Tools to build your tools, so to speak. I’m rooting for you.

    P.S. Nice title, I lol’d.

    Thanks! Yep, I started it almost 5 months ago and I have a basic physics engine, a (very) basic rendering engine, a game logic abstraction, and some scripting stuff. It’s coming along quite nicely, but it’s going to take a LOT more effort than I had originally imagined. But, it will be worth it in the end, one way or another. Thanks for the encouragement, Max! We should COD4 again sometime soon.
