Show twitch chat with emotes

Hello, I am trying to create a custom overlay for twitch streaming and am currently adding a window to show chat messages. The issue I am having is with emotes.

I can get the emotes from the twitch api into a texture object, but then how do I display them in the text? I found some old posts about using a sprite atlas and indexing the image you want, but is that the only way?


Unless Twitch uses ordinary unicode emojis (such as \U0001F600 for :grinning:︎), there is no other method I can think of. You should be able to find at least some of the main emojis online though; if you do, this thread might help you:
