# OpenGL GLSL and vs 2005, sample project from orange book

## Recommended Posts

Hi guys, long time troll lurker finally rearing my head to ask questions. in trying to compile: olg2brick example from the opengl orange book in visual studio 2005 at the linker stage produces the following error 1>LINK : fatal error LNK1104: cannot open file 'LIBC.lib' I have installed and setup (as far as per instuctions) the GLEW library. If there is a more specific forum for GLSL let me know. Thanks in advance. [Edited by - brian_a on May 1, 2006 1:33:45 AM]

LIBC.lib is the old single-threaded library; afaik, it's not available in VS 2005 (at least the Express version). You should use the multithreaded library instead. The option to change this is usually under the C++/Code Generation section of the project properties (its "Runtime Library"). If the project was converted, LIBC.lib might end up appear in the Command-Line section of the Linker properties or in the Additional Dependancies section of the linker properties. If so, find it and remove it.

Incidentally, did you mean "lurker" instead of "troll?" :P

the project was converted to vs2005. the project properties were already set as you suggested. however, the same link error is popping up. just fyi, im running vs2005 pro.

this thread solved my issue. although it seems a little odd.

• Both functions are available since 3.0, and I'm currently using glMapBuffer(), which works fine.
But, I was wondering if anyone has experienced advantage in using glMapBufferRange(), which allows to specify the range of the mapped buffer. Could this be only a safety measure or does it improve performance?
Note: I'm not asking about glBufferSubData()/glBufferData. Those two are irrelevant in this case.

Before using void glBindImageTexture(    GLuint unit, GLuint texture, GLint level, GLboolean layered, GLint layer, GLenum access, GLenum format), does need to make sure that texture is completeness.

hi guys,
are there any books, link online or any other resources that discusses on how to build special effects such as magic, lightning, etc. in OpenGL? i mean, yeah most of them are using particles but im looking for resources specifically on how to manipulate the particles to look like an effect that can be use for games,. i did fire particle before, and I want to learn how to do the other 'magic' as well.
Like are there one book or link(cant find in google) that atleast featured how to make different particle effects in OpenGL (or DirectX)? If there is no one stop shop for it, maybe ill just look for some tips on how to make a particle engine that is flexible enough to enable me to design different effects/magic
let me know if you guys have recommendations.

How do we rotate the camera around x axis 360 degrees, without having the strange effect as in my video below?
Mine behaves exactly the same way spherical coordinates would, I'm using euler angles.
Tried googling, but couldn't find a proper answer, guessing I don't know what exactly to google for, googled 'rotate 360 around x axis', got no proper answers.

The video shows the difference between blender and my rotation:

I've had a Google around for this but haven't yet found some solid advice. There is a lot of "it depends", but I'm not sure on what.
My question is what's a good rule of thumb to follow when it comes to creating/using VBOs & VAOs? As in, when should I use multiple or when should I not? My understanding so far is that if I need a new VBO, then I need a new VAO. So when it comes to rendering multiple objects I can either:
* make lots of VAO/VBO pairs and flip through them to render different objects, or
* make one big VBO and jump around its memory to render different objects.
I also understand that if I need to render objects with different vertex attributes, then a new VAO is necessary in this case.
If that "it depends" really is quite variable, what's best for a beginner with OpenGL, assuming that better approaches can be learnt later with better understanding?
