SDL is relatively new to me, and I found the OPENGLBLIT feature very interesting. It's much easier to blit 2D images to the screen than using an ortho projection and textures. I'm using it to display text on the screen. But the late SDL versions are saying that feature is deprecated, and that I should use the second mentioned method instead of OPENGLBLIT. Why is that? What are the drawbacks of OPENGLBLIT?
If it's really a hack to blit into the framebuffer, the only drawback I can think of is portability. If so, how portable is OPENGLBLIT currently? I need it to work on IRIX :o)
