Useful tiny utility

Recommended Posts

Hi there! I just made a tiny (92kb) utility that checks the OpenGL capabilities of a video card and makes a log file, full with information (including the version of DirectX installed, in case you use it too). Just run the application and then open the "log.txt" file that will be created. This app is useful to send over the Internet to friends (they run the utility and send you the "log.txt" file back, so you can be sure that your game/demo will run on their computer). You may download "glCheck" from here Enjoy! Cristián Ramírez (gameovercl) ICQ #38991565 Viña del Mar CHILE

That''s strange... I checked the link and it was working (???)

Anyway, if it does not work, try this one:

Mutancia Inc

Hope both links work

I tried both links - neither of them allow me to download the .zip file! Please fix if you can, it sounds like a nice little utility. Does it only work with Windows?

I dont think that geocities allows .zip files.
If you''d like, i''ll put the file one my site, and put the link in this forum.

firstly ... i saw the post go up, and downloaded the file no problem!

secondly ... a suggestion! it would be nice to see which modes are hardware accelerated, and which are rendered in software ... which is easy - just check the PFD_GENERIC_ACCELERATED flag after setting the display mode!

check this out to give you an idea:-
