OpenGL Problem programming with SDL and OpenGL

Recommended Posts

I have just started programming in C++ while using the SDL and OpenGL libraries. Everything was going fine until my 'raw' OpenGL commands started returning an error in my compiler. The code of my program is below. There are two separate files, "2d3PortalEngine.cpp" and "2D3PortalEngine.h". I do not understand why my OpenGL commands are not working because in the file "SDL_opengl.h", the OpenGL library as well as "windows.h" are already included. I have looked on the forum he as well as the web and have found similar problems, but their solutions are not working. One solution was to add "-lGL" to my linker settings. This did not work, because my compiler told me that it could not find "-lGL". Keep in mind that this program runs perfectly fine until I start making pure OpenGL calls. I have marked where I start having problems with a comment in the code in the file "2D3PortalEngine.h" --------------------- //2D3PortalEngine.cpp #include "2D3PortalEngine.h" #include <iostream> using namespace std; int main(int argc, char* args[]){ // Initializes the engine if(Engine.Init(640, 480, 32, SDL_OPENGL)) // if Initialization is successful, we start our Game Loop while(Engine.bRunning){ Engine.Input(); Engine.EventsHandler(); Engine.Render(); } else // Exits our program. Only happens when bRunning=false SDL_Quit(); return 0; } ---------------------------- ---------------------------- //2d3PortalEngine.h // #ifdef 2D3PortalEngine_h // #define 2D3PortalEngine_h #include "SDL/SDL.h" #include "SDL/SDL_opengl.h" #include <iostream> using namespace std; // This is our EngineEditor class // This takes care of all the Initialization, Input, Event Handling, and Rendering class EngineEditor{ private: public: // bRunning is what tells our program if it is running or not // Our program runs while bRunning=true, if bRunning=false, our program terminates int sWidth, sHeight, bpp, flags; bool bRunning; SDL_Surface *Screen; bool Init(int sWidth, int sHeight, int bpp, int flags); void Input(); void EventsHandler(); void Render(); }Engine; void EngineEditor::Input(){ // SDL_EVENT variable that holds the key input SDL_Event KeyEvent; while(SDL_PollEvent(&KeyEvent)){ // Checks to see if a key was pressed if(KeyEvent.type == SDL_KEYDOWN){ switch (KeyEvent.key.keysym.sym){ // Specific Keypresses go here } break; } // Checks to see if a key was released if(KeyEvent.type == SDL_KEYUP){ switch (KeyEvent.key.keysym.sym){ // Specific KeyUps goes here case SDLK_ESCAPE: Engine.bRunning=false; break; } break; } } return ; } void EngineEditor::EventsHandler(){ return ; } void EngineEditor::Render(){ return ; } bool EngineEditor::Init(int sWidth, int sHeight, int bpp, int flags){ Engine.bRunning = true; SDL_Init(SDL_INIT_EVERYTHING); SDL_GL_SetAttribute( SDL_GL_RED_SIZE, 8 ); SDL_GL_SetAttribute( SDL_GL_GREEN_SIZE, 8 ); SDL_GL_SetAttribute( SDL_GL_BLUE_SIZE, 8 ); SDL_GL_SetAttribute( SDL_GL_DEPTH_SIZE, 32 ); SDL_GL_SetAttribute( SDL_GL_DOUBLEBUFFER, 1 ); Engine.Screen = SDL_SetVideoMode(sWidth, sHeight, bpp, flags); // This is where I am having problems!!! glEnable(GL_TEXTURE_3D); glClearColor(0.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f, 0.0f); glViewport(0, 0, sWidth, sHeight); glClear(GL_COLOR_BUFFER_BIT); glMatrixMode(GL_PROJECTION); glLoadIdentity(); glOrtho(0.0f, sWidth, sHeight, 0.0f, -1.0f, 1.0f); glMatrixMode(GL_MODELVIEW); glLoadIdentity(); SDL_GL_SwapBuffers(); return true; } // #endif

post the errors it is spitting out. I don't see you including the gl headers. It could also be that you didn't set the compiler to look in the correct directory for the gl headers, or that you didn't add the gl library path to your linker settings. but paste the errors so we can help

Here is a link to the screenshots of the errors as well as what my compiler is linking to.

The compiler that I am using is Code::Blocks. The gl headers are included in the SDL_opengl.h header file so I should not have to include them myself, at least for as much as I understand including files to work.

      I am developing my engine using the OpenGL 3.3 compatibility profile. It runs as expected on my NVIDIA card and on my Intel Card however when I tried it on an AMD setup it ran 3 times worse than on the other setups. Could this be a AMD driver thing or is this probably a problem with my OGL code? Could a different code standard create such bad performance?

      I'm trying to get some legacy OpenGL code to run with a shader pipeline,
      The legacy code uses glVertexPointer(), glColorPointer(), glNormalPointer() and glTexCoordPointer() to supply the vertex information.
      I know that it should be using setVertexAttribPointer() etc to clearly define the layout but that is not an option right now since the legacy code can't be modified to that extent.
      I've got a version 330 vertex shader to somewhat work:
      #version 330 uniform mat4 osg_ModelViewProjectionMatrix; uniform mat4 osg_ModelViewMatrix; layout(location = 0) in vec4 Vertex; layout(location = 2) in vec4 Normal; // Velocity layout(location = 3) in vec3 TexCoord; // TODO: is this the right layout location? out VertexData { vec4 color; vec3 velocity; float size; } VertexOut; void main(void) { vec4 p0 = Vertex; vec4 p1 = Vertex + vec4(Normal.x, Normal.y, Normal.z, 0.0f); vec3 velocity = (osg_ModelViewProjectionMatrix * p1 - osg_ModelViewProjectionMatrix * p0).xyz; VertexOut.velocity = velocity; VertexOut.size = TexCoord.y; gl_Position = osg_ModelViewMatrix * Vertex; } What works is the Vertex and Normal information that the legacy C++ OpenGL code seem to provide in layout location 0 and 2. This is fine.
      What I'm not getting to work is the TexCoord information that is supplied by a glTexCoordPointer() call in C++.
      Question:
      What layout location is the old standard pipeline using for glTexCoordPointer()? Or is this undefined?
       
      Side note: I'm trying to get an OpenSceneGraph 3.4.0 particle system to use custom vertex, geometry and fragment shaders for rendering the particles.

      Hi i am new to this forum  i wanted to ask for help from all of you i want to generate real time terrain using a 32 bit heightmap i am good at c++ and have started learning Opengl as i am very interested in making landscapes in opengl i have looked around the internet for help about this topic but i am not getting the hang of the concepts and what they are doing can some here suggests me some good resources for making terrain engine please for example like tutorials,books etc so that i can understand the whole concept of terrain generation.

      Hey guys. I'm trying to get my application to work on my Nvidia GTX 970 desktop. It currently works on my Intel HD 3000 laptop, but on the desktop, every bind textures specifically from framebuffers, I get half a second of lag. This is done 4 times as I have three RGBA textures and one depth 32F buffer. I tried to use debugging software for the first time - RenderDoc only shows SwapBuffers() and no OGL calls, while Nvidia Nsight crashes upon execution, so neither are helpful. Without binding it runs regularly. This does not happen with non-framebuffer binds.
      GLFramebuffer::GLFramebuffer(FramebufferCreateInfo createInfo) { glGenFramebuffers(1, &fbo); glBindFramebuffer(GL_FRAMEBUFFER, fbo); textures = new GLuint[createInfo.numColorTargets]; glGenTextures(createInfo.numColorTargets, textures); GLenum *DrawBuffers = new GLenum[createInfo.numColorTargets]; for (uint32_t i = 0; i < createInfo.numColorTargets; i++) { glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D, textures[i]); GLint internalFormat; GLenum format; TranslateFormats(createInfo.colorFormats[i], format, internalFormat); // returns GL_RGBA and GL_RGBA glTexImage2D(GL_TEXTURE_2D, 0, internalFormat, createInfo.width, createInfo.height, 0, format, GL_FLOAT, 0); glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_MAG_FILTER, GL_NEAREST); glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_MIN_FILTER, GL_NEAREST); DrawBuffers[i] = GL_COLOR_ATTACHMENT0 + i; glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D, 0); glFramebufferTexture(GL_FRAMEBUFFER, GL_COLOR_ATTACHMENT0 + i, textures[i], 0); } if (createInfo.depthFormat != FORMAT_DEPTH_NONE) { GLenum depthFormat; switch (createInfo.depthFormat) { case FORMAT_DEPTH_16: depthFormat = GL_DEPTH_COMPONENT16; break; case FORMAT_DEPTH_24: depthFormat = GL_DEPTH_COMPONENT24; break; case FORMAT_DEPTH_32: depthFormat = GL_DEPTH_COMPONENT32; break; case FORMAT_DEPTH_24_STENCIL_8: depthFormat = GL_DEPTH24_STENCIL8; break; case FORMAT_DEPTH_32_STENCIL_8: depthFormat = GL_DEPTH32F_STENCIL8; break; } glGenTextures(1, &depthrenderbuffer); glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D, depthrenderbuffer); glTexImage2D(GL_TEXTURE_2D, 0, depthFormat, createInfo.width, createInfo.height, 0, GL_DEPTH_COMPONENT, GL_FLOAT, 0); glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_MAG_FILTER, GL_NEAREST); glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_MIN_FILTER, GL_NEAREST); glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D, 0); glFramebufferTexture(GL_FRAMEBUFFER, GL_DEPTH_ATTACHMENT, depthrenderbuffer, 0); } if (createInfo.numColorTargets > 0) glDrawBuffers(createInfo.numColorTargets, DrawBuffers); else glDrawBuffer(GL_NONE); if (glCheckFramebufferStatus(GL_FRAMEBUFFER) != GL_FRAMEBUFFER_COMPLETE) std::cout << "Framebuffer Incomplete\n"; glBindFramebuffer(GL_FRAMEBUFFER, 0); width = createInfo.width; height = createInfo.height; } // ... // FBO Creation FramebufferCreateInfo gbufferCI; gbufferCI.colorFormats = gbufferCFs.data(); gbufferCI.depthFormat = FORMAT_DEPTH_32; gbufferCI.numColorTargets = gbufferCFs.size(); gbufferCI.width = engine.settings.resolutionX; gbufferCI.height = engine.settings.resolutionY; gbufferCI.renderPass = nullptr; gbuffer = graphicsWrapper->CreateFramebuffer(gbufferCI); // Bind glBindFramebuffer(GL_DRAW_FRAMEBUFFER, fbo); // Draw here... // Bind to textures glActiveTexture(GL_TEXTURE0); glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D, textures[0]); glActiveTexture(GL_TEXTURE1); glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D, textures[1]); glActiveTexture(GL_TEXTURE2); glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D, textures[2]); glActiveTexture(GL_TEXTURE3); glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D, depthrenderbuffer); Here is an extract of my code. I can't think of anything else to include. I've really been butting my head into a wall trying to think of a reason but I can think of none and all my research yields nothing. Thanks in advance!

      Hi everyone, I've shared my 2D Game Engine source code. It's the result of 4 years working on it (and I still continue improving features ) and I want to share with the community. You can see some videos on youtube and some demo gifs on my twitter account.
      This Engine has been developed as End-of-Degree Project and it is coded in Javascript, WebGL and GLSL. The engine is written from scratch.
      This is not a professional engine but it's for learning purposes, so anyone can review the code an learn basis about graphics, physics or game engine architecture. Source code on this GitHub repository.
      I'm available for a good conversation about Game Engine / Graphics Programming
