I'm just working on a class called "glSurface", as a clone of sorts of SDL_Surface. Right now it's pretty basic, but when I call the draw function it doesn't actually draw the texture, just the quad. Perhaps some of you could shed some light on my problem? Hear is the class:
Quote:
 #include #include #include "OpenGL/gl.h" #include "OpenGL/glu.h" #include "IL/il.h" #include "IL/ilu.h" #include "IL/ilut.h" class glSurface { protected: GLint components; GLsizei width; GLsizei height; GLenum format; GLvoid *pixels; ILuint image_IL; GLuint texture_GL; int x; int y; public: glSurface(); int Open(char *); void Position(int, int); void Draw(); }; glSurface::glSurface() { ilGenImages(1, &image_IL); glGenTextures(1, &texture_GL); } int glSurface::Open(char filename[]) { ILint open_currentBound_IL = ilGetInteger(IL_CUR_IMAGE); ILboolean open_success_IL; ilBindImage(image_IL); open_success_IL = ilLoadImage(filename); if (!open_success_IL) { ilBindImage(open_currentBound_IL); return(-1); } components = ilGetInteger(IL_IMAGE_BPP); width = ilGetInteger(IL_IMAGE_WIDTH); height = ilGetInteger(IL_IMAGE_HEIGHT); format = ilGetInteger(IL_IMAGE_FORMAT); pixels = ilGetData(); ilBindImage(open_currentBound_IL); return(0); } void glSurface::Position(int tx, int ty) { x = tx; y = ty; } void glSurface::Draw() { glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D, texture_GL); glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_MAG_FILTER, GL_LINEAR); glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_MIN_FILTER, GL_LINEAR); glTexImage2D(GL_TEXTURE_2D, 0, components, width, height, 0, format, GL_UNSIGNED_BYTE, pixels); glBegin(GL_QUADS); glTexCoord2i(0, 0); glVertex2i(x, y); glTexCoord2i(1, 0); glVertex2i(x + width, y); glTexCoord2i(1, 1); glVertex2i(x + width, y + height); glTexCoord2i(0, 1); glVertex2i(x, y + width); glEnd(); }
Thanks for any help available!

First, use source tags, not quote tags for source code.

Second, did you glEnable textures?

Of course, though it is not indicated in this fragment of code. For reference, here is the sample main file I have been using to test this header:

You're not checking the return value from the glSurface::open() call. Is it possible that the open is failing? I'm not familiar with IL, so I can't comment on the correctness of your loading function.

As a side note, you don't want to be calling glTexImage2D() every frame. It should only be called once for a given image.

Ah, true. I'll have to chuck a first time checker in there somewhere. I'll stick some cout notifiers in after ever command, and see what happens and what doesn't.

Are you drawing the face in the right order (front/back face) ??

Do you mean the order of the vertices? Yeah, I'm pretty sure they're ok.

I tried inserting little tags, to tell me what just happened as the code executed. It went fine. I stuck a cout warning in my loading success if loop, and it went fine too.

I then tried changing my drawing system so that it would rebind the IL image and draw taking everything directly from it.
After that, I thought to myself... Oh! It's because my glOrtho commands don't affect the texture grabbing commands, so I changed the TexCoord calls... still no luck!

Maybe it's my class or something... this is first class I ever wrote, aside from some practice ones...

Oh yeah, and I stuck a first draw check, to see if I had to call the glTex2d command. Here's the sligthly revised source:

#include <cstdlib>#include <cstring>#include "OpenGL/gl.h"#include "OpenGL/glu.h"#include "IL/il.h"#include "IL/ilu.h"#include "IL/ilut.h"using namespace std;class glSurface {		protected:		GLint components;		GLsizei width;		GLsizei height;		GLenum format;		GLvoid *pixels;				ILuint image_IL;		GLuint texture_GL;				int x;		int y;		int firstDraw;					public:		glSurface();		int Open(char *);		void Position(int, int);		void Draw();				};glSurface::glSurface() {	ilGenImages(1, ?_IL);	glGenTextures(1, &texture_GL);	firstDraw = 1;}int glSurface::Open(char filename[]) {	ILint open_currentBound_IL = ilGetInteger(IL_CUR_IMAGE);	ILboolean open_success_IL;			ilBindImage(image_IL);	open_success_IL = ilLoadImage(filename);	if (open_success_IL == IL_FALSE) {		ilBindImage(open_currentBound_IL);		cout << "Problem!" << endl;		return(-1);	}	components = ilGetInteger(IL_IMAGE_BPP);	width = ilGetInteger(IL_IMAGE_WIDTH);	height = ilGetInteger(IL_IMAGE_HEIGHT);	format = ilGetInteger(IL_IMAGE_FORMAT);	pixels = ilGetData();		ilBindImage(open_currentBound_IL);		return(0);}void glSurface::Position(int tx, int ty) {	x = tx;	y = ty;}void glSurface::Draw() {	glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D, texture_GL);		if (firstDraw = 1) {		glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_MAG_FILTER, GL_LINEAR);		glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_MIN_FILTER, GL_LINEAR);		glTexImage2D(GL_TEXTURE_2D, 0, components, width, height, 0, format, GL_UNSIGNED_BYTE, pixels);firstDraw = 0;	}		glBegin(GL_QUADS);		glTexCoord2i(0, 0);	glVertex2i(x, y);		glTexCoord2i(0, 1); glVertex2i(x + width, y);		glTexCoord2i(1, 1); glVertex2i(x + width, y + height);		glTexCoord2i(1, 0); glVertex2i(x, y + width);	glEnd();}

erm, judging by the test code you have provided you dont set up opengl before atempting to use OpenGL commands, this is going to fail.

Also, as a point of reference, unless you mention it there is no 'of course' about anything you do, some people make very simple mistakes when asking for help so we can't assume you've done anything unless you state you have done so.

Ah yes, just noticed that. The setupVideo() command is actually called, I forgot it in that source snippet there.

Thanks!

• Good Evening,
I want to make a 2D game which involves displaying some debug information. Especially for collision, enemy sights and so on ...
First of I was thinking about all those shapes which I need will need for debugging purposes: circles, rectangles, lines, polygons.
I am really stucked right now because of the fundamental question:
Where do I store my vertices positions for each line (object)? Currently I am not using a model matrix because I am using orthographic projection and set the final position within the VBO. That means that if I add a new line I would have to expand the "points" array and re-upload (recall glBufferData) it every time. The other method would be to use a model matrix and a fixed vbo for a line but it would be also messy to exactly create a line from (0,0) to (100,20) calculating the rotation and scale to make it fit.
If I proceed with option 1 "updating the array each frame" I was thinking of having 4 draw calls every frame for the lines vao, polygons vao and so on.
In addition to that I am planning to use some sort of ECS based architecture. So the other question would be:
Should I treat those debug objects as entities/components?
For me it would make sense to treat them as entities but that's creates a new issue with the previous array approach because it would have for example a transform and render component. A special render component for debug objects (no texture etc) ... For me the transform component is also just a matrix but how would I then define a line?
Treating them as components would'nt be a good idea in my eyes because then I would always need an entity. Well entity is just an id !? So maybe its a component?

Hello. I am coding a small thingy in my spare time. All i want to achieve is to load a heightmap (as the lowest possible walking terrain), some static meshes (elements of the environment) and a dynamic character (meaning i can move, collide with heightmap/static meshes and hold a varying item in a hand ). Got a bunch of questions, or rather problems i can't find solution to myself. Nearly all are deal with graphics/gpu, not the coding part. My c++ is on high enough level.
Let's go:
Heightmap - i obviously want it to be textured, size is hardcoded to 256x256 squares. I can't have one huge texture stretched over entire terrain cause every pixel would be enormous. Thats why i decided to use 2 specified textures. First will be a tileset consisting of 16 square tiles (u v range from 0 to 0.25 for first tile and so on) and second a 256x256 buffer with 0-15 value representing index of the tile from tileset for every heigtmap square. Problem is, how do i blend the edges nicely and make some computationally cheap changes so its not obvious there are only 16 tiles? Is it possible to generate such terrain with some existing program?
Collisions - i want to use bounding sphere and aabb. But should i store them for a model or entity instance? Meaning i have 20 same trees spawned using the same tree model, but every entity got its own transformation (position, scale etc). Storing collision component per instance grats faster access + is precalculated and transformed (takes additional memory, but who cares?), so i stick with this, right? What should i do if object is dynamically rotated? The aabb is no longer aligned and calculating per vertex min/max everytime object rotates/scales is pretty expensive, right?
Drawing aabb - problem similar to above (storing aabb data per instance or model). This time in my opinion per model is enough since every instance also does not have own vertex buffer but uses the shared one (so 20 trees share reference to one tree model). So rendering aabb is about taking the model's aabb, transforming with instance matrix and voila. What about aabb vertex buffer (this is more of a cosmetic question, just curious, bumped onto it in time of writing this). Is it better to make it as 8 points and index buffer (12 lines), or only 2 vertices with min/max x/y/z and having the shaders dynamically generate 6 other vertices and draw the box? Or maybe there should be just ONE 1x1x1 cube box template moved/scaled per entity?
What if one model got a diffuse texture and a normal map, and other has only diffuse? Should i pass some bool flag to shader with that info, or just assume that my game supports only diffuse maps without fancy stuff?
There were several more but i forgot/solved them at time of writing

Hi All,
I'm reading the tutorials from learnOpengl site (nice site) and I'm having a question on the camera (https://learnopengl.com/Getting-started/Camera).
I always saw the camera being manipulated with the lookat, but in tutorial I saw the camera being changed through the MVP arrays, which do not seem to be camera, but rather the scene that changes:
#version 330 core layout (location = 0) in vec3 aPos; layout (location = 1) in vec2 aTexCoord; out vec2 TexCoord; uniform mat4 model; uniform mat4 view; uniform mat4 projection; void main() { gl_Position = projection * view * model * vec4(aPos, 1.0f); TexCoord = vec2(aTexCoord.x, aTexCoord.y); } then, the matrix manipulated:
..... glm::mat4 projection = glm::perspective(glm::radians(fov), (float)SCR_WIDTH / (float)SCR_HEIGHT, 0.1f, 100.0f); ourShader.setMat4("projection", projection); .... glm::mat4 view = glm::lookAt(cameraPos, cameraPos + cameraFront, cameraUp); ourShader.setMat4("view", view); .... model = glm::rotate(model, glm::radians(angle), glm::vec3(1.0f, 0.3f, 0.5f)); ourShader.setMat4("model", model);
So, some doubts:
- Why use it like that?
- Is it okay to manipulate the camera that way?
-in this way, are not the vertex's positions that changes instead of the camera?
- I need to pass MVP to all shaders of object in my scenes ?

What it seems, is that the camera stands still and the scenery that changes...
it's right?

Thank you

• Sampling a floating point texture where the alpha channel holds 4-bytes of packed data into the float. I don't know how to cast the raw memory to treat it as an integer so I can perform bit-shifting operations.

int rgbValue = int(textureSample.w);//4 bytes of data packed as color
// algorithm might not be correct and endianness might need switching.
vec3 extractedData = vec3(  rgbValue & 0xFF000000,  (rgbValue << 8) & 0xFF000000, (rgbValue << 16) & 0xFF000000);
extractedData /= 255.0f;

• While writing a simple renderer using OpenGL, I faced an issue with the glGetUniformLocation function. For some reason, the location is coming to be -1.
Anyone has any idea .. what should I do?
