In Topic: Mac or PC - Really, this is a programming question.

Mostly Mac/Xcode, but also Xamarin, Xubuntu, Emacs, Windows 8 and VS2013. Most of my projects work on all big operating systems.

Have you tried calling glGetError()?

I think a good way to learn is:

  • Write your own engine.
  • Use existing engines and implement their good features in your own engine
  • Make games using existing engines and your own engine.

@bioglaze,JvdWulp: my clustered deferred implentation goes up to 60K lights at smooth 60fps biggrin.png

That's impressive! My Tiled Forward implementation only goes up to ~2000 point lights @ 1080p / 60 Hz, however, I use quite a heavy Cook-Torrance everywhere and haven't really profiled it yet.

You could cull lights in parallel. Look up Tiled Forward or Tiled Deferred.
