OpenGL Help with spritesheet texture coords

Recommended Posts

Okay I have taken the GLSprite example with iPhone Apple opengl es When it's 1 texture (32x32) I can draw it fine. But I created a sprite sheet ( 96x32 ) It's a horizontal sheet with 3 (32x32) images with 1 row. It always appears as white with the sheet, but correctly when it's a single image. Here are my defines ( I tried and prefer 1:1 pixel coords but I doubt it's possible) Sprite (32x32) // Sets up an array of values to use as the sprite vertices. const GLfloat spriteVertices[] = { -16.0f, -16.0f, 16.0f, -16.0f, -16.0f, 16.0f, 16.0f, 16.0f }; Texture Coords // Sets up an array of values for the texture coordinates. const GLshort spriteTexcoords[] = { 0, 0, // bottom left 96, 0, // bottom right 0, 32, // top left 96, 32, // top right }; // Sets up an array of values for the texture coordinates. const GLshort spriteWallcoords[] = { 0, 0, // bottom left 32, 0, // bottom right 0, 32, // top left 32, 32, // top right }; /* // Sets up an array of values for the texture coordinates. const GLshort spriteTexcoords[] = { 0, 0, // bottom left 1, 0, // bottom right 0, 1, // top left 1, 1, // top right }; // Sets up an array of values for the texture coordinates. const GLshort spriteWallcoords[] = { 0, 0, // bottom left 1/3, 0, // bottom right 0, 1, // top left 1/3, 1, // top right }; */ Load Texture if(spriteImage) { // Allocated memory needed for the bitmap context spriteData = (GLubyte *) malloc(width * height * 4); // Uses the bitmatp creation function provided by the Core Graphics framework. colorSpace = CGColorSpaceCreateDeviceRGB(); spriteContext = CGBitmapContextCreate(spriteData, width, height, 8, width * 4,colorSpace, kCGImageAlphaPremultipliedLast); // After you create the context, you can draw the sprite image to the context. CGContextDrawImage(spriteContext, CGRectMake(0.0, 0.0, (CGFloat)width, (CGFloat)height), spriteImage); // You don't need the context at this point, so you need to release it to avoid memory leaks. CGContextRelease(spriteContext); // Use OpenGL ES to generate a name for the texture. glGenTextures(1, &spriteTexture); // Bind the texture name. glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D, spriteTexture); // Speidfy a 2D texture image, provideing the a pointer to the image data in memory glTexImage2D(GL_TEXTURE_2D, 0, GL_RGBA, width, height, 0, GL_RGBA, GL_UNSIGNED_BYTE, spriteData); // Release the image data free(spriteData); Display Texture(drawView) glViewport(0, 0, backingWidth, backingHeight); glMatrixMode(GL_PROJECTION); glLoadIdentity(); glOrthof(0, backingWidth, backingHeight, 0, -20, 20); glMatrixMode(GL_MODELVIEW); glLoadIdentity(); // Make sure texturing is enabled glEnableClientState(GL_TEXTURE_COORD_ARRAY); glEnableClientState(GL_VERTEX_ARRAY); // Clear background to beautiful green :o) glClearColor(1.0, 1.0, 0.0, 1.0); glClear(GL_COLOR_BUFFER_BIT); // setup viewport and projection glTranslatef(100.0f,100.0f, 0.0f); glTexCoordPointer(2, GL_SHORT, 0, spriteWallcoords); glDrawArrays(GL_TRIANGLE_STRIP, 0, 4); Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks, Nick

Hi nick5454, the problem looks to be that you're attempting to pass your texture coordinates as a short. So when you try to do 1 / 3, you wind up with 0, rather than .333333 as you are expecting. This is because it's using integer division as opposed to floating point. Easiest fix would to just swap over to using floats for your tex coordinates.

I tried that also....It comes over as a white square.

I changed the struct and the calls to "GLfloat" and "GL_FLOAT" respectively.

Any advice is appreciated.

I'm an idiot.....

my image is 96x32.....( 96 not ^2 )

my question is: when they say power of 2 does that mean image must have equal length and width or both must be a power of 2, but they may be different sizes.

      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.
      Thank you in advance!

      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?

      Hello all,
      On my Windows 7 x64 machine I wrote the code below on VS 2017 and ran it.
      #include <glad/glad.h>  #include <GLFW/glfw3.h> #include <std_lib_facilities_4.h> using namespace std; void framebuffer_size_callback(GLFWwindow* window , int width, int height) {     glViewport(0, 0, width, height); } //****************************** void processInput(GLFWwindow* window) {     if (glfwGetKey(window, GLFW_KEY_ESCAPE) == GLFW_PRESS)         glfwSetWindowShouldClose(window, true); } //********************************* int main() {     glfwInit();     glfwWindowHint(GLFW_CONTEXT_VERSION_MAJOR, 3);     glfwWindowHint(GLFW_CONTEXT_VERSION_MINOR, 3);     glfwWindowHint(GLFW_OPENGL_PROFILE, GLFW_OPENGL_CORE_PROFILE);     //glfwWindowHint(GLFW_OPENGL_FORWARD_COMPAT, GL_TRUE);     GLFWwindow* window = glfwCreateWindow(800, 600, "LearnOpenGL", nullptr, nullptr);     if (window == nullptr)     {         cout << "Failed to create GLFW window" << endl;         glfwTerminate();         return -1;     }     glfwMakeContextCurrent(window);     if (!gladLoadGLLoader((GLADloadproc)glfwGetProcAddress))     {         cout << "Failed to initialize GLAD" << endl;         return -1;     }     glViewport(0, 0, 600, 480);     glfwSetFramebufferSizeCallback(window, framebuffer_size_callback);     glClearColor(0.2f, 0.3f, 0.3f, 1.0f);     glClear(GL_COLOR_BUFFER_BIT);     while (!glfwWindowShouldClose(window))     {         processInput(window);         glfwSwapBuffers(window);         glfwPollEvents();     }     glfwTerminate();     return 0; }  
      The result should be a fixed dark green-blueish color as the end of here. But the color of my window turns from black to green-blueish repeatedly in high speed! I thought it might be a problem with my Graphics card driver but I've updated it and it's: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750 Ti.
      What is the problem and how to solve it please?
