Getting Video Card Status...

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone, I''m writing up a design document for my game engine, and I want to include features like polling the video card for it''s capabilities, total memory, used memory, free memory, etc... Not sure what else I could get from the video card, but the things I mentioned I would like to get. I know with directx this can be done, however, I''m using OpenGL. Are there functions that can be called to get this information? Thank you Michael Rhodes Tiger Studios Entertainment http://tigerstudios.net <- not up yet

As I know, you CAN''T get the card''s total/used/free video memory . You could estimate of course but it is no good. You can get the cards texture units with glGetIntegerv(), the name of the card and the vendor''s name.
