hello folks i have some problems with programming opengl. First of all, i use win2000 prof. + voodoo3 3000. I installed the latest 3dfx drivers (release 1.0). While everything (games, etc.) runs well in release-mode, i get lot of problems in debugmode. By calling wglDeleteContext(...) at cleanup i get a a "user break ...." in the nt-kernel dll. I tried many different opengl-mini-apps. I wonder if its a bug in 3dfx driver, in win2k or whatever. Anyone has the same problem ? Regards Masoud

I''m using voodoo3 3000 and I found some problems in windowed mode in one of the latest driver release...(so I don''t change it).
You shoud use IDC version of the driver (Installable Client Driver) not a minigl driver.
However I have no (Win/OpenGL) problem when I''m exiting from the application...(are you making a clean up at exit?)

When your application finished (or you''re going to change display mode)
wglMakeCurrent( NULL, NULL );
wglDeleteContext( hRC ); // delete render context
ReleaseDC( hWnd, hDC ); // release device context

Remember to GetDC when you init OpenGL and not every time you call SwapBuffers(hDC).

I''ve also noticed some strange bugs:

1) If you don''t draw a lot of thing (for example clear and swap) the application crashes when you try to resize it (swap per second >300)!

2) If you draw lines and they are clipped against the viewport, clipped colors are wrong...if you enable GL_WIDTH and you set glLineWidth(1.000001f) lines will be 1.0 width but the colors are correct!

Are You also on Win2k ?
You mentioned ICD drivers, all i did was to install the
win2k drivers from 3dfx web, do i need to install any
additional "packages" ? (ICD ?).
I cleaned my app the standard-way, which is (almost) the same
as You wrote:

wglMakeCurrent( hDC, NULL );
wglDeleteContext( hRC ); // delete render context
ReleaseDC( hWnd, hDC ); // release device context

An i mentioned, i even tried many different 3rd party opengl-
mini apps, they all behaved the same, "crash" (user-breakpoint)
at wglDeleteContext(...).
Btw, NeHe''s OpenGL miniapp crahsed totally on my computer.

      I have an OpenGL application but without possibility to wite own shaders.
      I need to perform small VS modification - is possible to do it in an alternative way? Do we have apps or driver modifictions which will catch the shader sent to GPU and override it?

      Does sync be needed to read texture content after access texture image in compute shader?
      My simple code is as below,
      glBindImageTexture(0, texture[0], 0, GL_FALSE, 3, GL_READ_ONLY, GL_R32UI);
      glBindImageTexture(1, texture[1], 0, GL_FALSE, 4, GL_WRITE_ONLY, GL_R32UI);
      glDispatchCompute(1, 1, 1);
      // Does sync be needed here?
      glBindFramebuffer(GL_READ_FRAMEBUFFER, framebuffer);
                                     GL_TEXTURE_CUBE_MAP_POSITIVE_X + face, texture[1], 0);
      glReadPixels(0, 0, kWidth, kHeight, GL_RED_INTEGER, GL_UNSIGNED_INT, outputValues);
      Compute shader is very simple, imageLoad content from texture[0], and imageStore content to texture[1]. Does need to sync after dispatchCompute?

      My question: is it possible to transform multiple angular velocities so that they can be reinserted as one? My research is below:
      // This works quat quaternion1 = GEQuaternionFromAngleRadians(angleRadiansVector1); quat quaternion2 = GEMultiplyQuaternions(quaternion1, GEQuaternionFromAngleRadians(angleRadiansVector2)); quat quaternion3 = GEMultiplyQuaternions(quaternion2, GEQuaternionFromAngleRadians(angleRadiansVector3)); glMultMatrixf(GEMat4FromQuaternion(quaternion3).array); // The first two work fine but not the third. Why? quat quaternion1 = GEQuaternionFromAngleRadians(angleRadiansVector1); vec3 vector1 = GETransformQuaternionAndVector(quaternion1, angularVelocity1); quat quaternion2 = GEQuaternionFromAngleRadians(angleRadiansVector2); vec3 vector2 = GETransformQuaternionAndVector(quaternion2, angularVelocity2); // This doesn't work //quat quaternion3 = GEQuaternionFromAngleRadians(angleRadiansVector3); //vec3 vector3 = GETransformQuaternionAndVector(quaternion3, angularVelocity3); vec3 angleVelocity = GEAddVectors(vector1, vector2); // Does not work: vec3 angleVelocity = GEAddVectors(vector1, GEAddVectors(vector2, vector3)); static vec3 angleRadiansVector; vec3 angularAcceleration = GESetVector(0.0, 0.0, 0.0); // Sending it through one angular velocity later in my motion engine angleVelocity = GEAddVectors(angleVelocity, GEMultiplyVectorAndScalar(angularAcceleration, timeStep)); angleRadiansVector = GEAddVectors(angleRadiansVector, GEMultiplyVectorAndScalar(angleVelocity, timeStep)); glMultMatrixf(GEMat4FromEulerAngle(angleRadiansVector).array); Also how do I combine multiple angularAcceleration variables? Is there an easier way to transform the angular values?

      I have this code below in both my vertex and fragment shader, however when I request glGetUniformLocation("Lights[0].diffuse") or "Lights[0].attenuation", it returns -1. It will only give me a valid uniform location if I actually use the diffuse/attenuation variables in the VERTEX shader. Because I use position in the vertex shader, it always returns a valid uniform location. I've read that I can share uniforms across both vertex and fragment, but I'm confused what this is even compiling to if this is the case.
      #define NUM_LIGHTS 2
      struct Light
          vec3 position;
          vec3 diffuse;
          float attenuation;
      uniform Light Lights[NUM_LIGHTS];

      I have a Bachelor project on topic "Implenet 3D Boid's algorithm in OpenGL". All OpenGL issues works fine for me, all rendering etc. But when I started implement the boid's algorithm it was getting worse and worse. I read article ( inspirate from another code (here: but it still doesn't work like in tutorials and videos. For example the main problem: when I apply Cohesion (one of three main laws of boids) it makes some "cycling knot". Second, when some flock touch to another it scary change the coordination or respawn in origin (x: 0, y:0. z:0). Just some streng things. 
      I followed many tutorials, change a try everything but it isn't so smooth, without lags like in another videos. I really need your help. 
      My code (optimalizing branch):
      Exe file (if you want to look) and models folder (for those who will download the sources):
      Thanks for any help...
