I am taking a break (semi giving up)

I have been working for like a week trying to get a PointSprite-based particle system working. It hasn't. So far, I have shown exactly NOTHING on the screen. Quite frustrating, I must say. I am going to leave that, and get something else working for now.

Have you tried disabling lighting while rendering the point sprites? I had to do that in a tutorial I was working on, otherwise the point sprites always showed as all black.

Yes, actually, I had. I was explicitly disabling lighting anyway, since I am using 2d, prelit sprites. If you look a couple posts farther, you'll see that I finally got it to work. This was definitely the single most irritating feature implementation in the game.
