Hello,

I'm nowadays developping a game using OpenGL.
By the way, I'm a novice about this library, so i'm still doing some common mistakes.

I tried so hard to fix my depth buffer problem, but i can't do anything about that ;

Here is the screenshot of the game, without the problem (my boxes' depth are very low) :


Now, if i put some depth on my boxes...


(For those who would like an animation, i recorded the problem there :
http://www.megaupload.com/?d=ZPK99ZWG

Well, I paste some of my code, tell me if i'm doing something wrong. (Well, I guess I do...)



// Init function
void init ()
{
glutInitDisplayMode(GLUT_RGB | GLUT_DOUBLE | GLUT_DEPTH);
glEnable(GL_DEPTH_TEST);
}

// Drawing routine
void draw ()
{
glClearColor(0.1, 0.1, 0.1, 1.0);
glClear(GL_COLOR_BUFFER_BIT | GL_DEPTH_BUFFER_BIT);

glMatrixMode(GL_MODELVIEW);
glLoadIdentity();

gl_plateau_draw(gc->glPlateau);
glutSwapBuffers();
}


Can you help me ?
If you need more code, I can copy / paste there.

Thank you ! :)

EDIT :
Oh ... I just noticed that switch
glEnable(GL_DEPTH_TEST);
and the
glutInitDisplayMode
was doing something better ...



There is still something wrong in the drawing of my boxes ; Sometimes my boxes are filled, sometimes not. (depends of the position of the camera)

Try glDisable(GL_CULL_FACE). Polygons have a front and back side, and back-facing polygons are commonly culled away. Usually this is a good thing, and if you order your vertices correctly you will still get the correct behavior, unless you need to be able to view the same polygon from both directions.

Thank you for the reply Erik, it's really appreciated :)

Unfortunately, i tried your advice, but this didn't work...
I didn't touch at culling anywhere else.

I still believe that it is a depth buffer problem :
As you can see, my tokens are visible, like if the boxes were invisible...

Also try putting glEnable(GL_DEPTH_TEST); in your draw function.

Thank you again for the advice, I didn't try this.
It seems to resolve the transparency problem, but it now does the same problem as the begginning... :-(

This one : Screenshot

Post the whole code.

Well, this is a school project, the whole source code length is almost 100ko (but only 20ko of OpenGL), so I uploaded this to Megaupload...
Here it is : http://www.megaupload.com/?d=VP2JLZDF
The files where I use openGL are prefixed by "Gl", and my draw routine is in GraphicContext.c.

I don't have so much hope that someone will analyze all my code to find the problem, but if someone do, be sure that someone in the world will thank you very very much :)

Quote:
Any what is the "depth range" and the "depth func"?

I'm not sure of the meaning of your question, but i use that :
gluPerspective(30, width/height, 0.1, 10000);

I don't know how to use glDepthRange(), maybe that is the problem ?

EDIT :
I got a function to set the FPS to 60, the rendering changes if i modify the value of the max FPS ... I guess i'm doing wrong with the depth buffer and the FPS.

EDIT 2 :
Erm, i removed the FPS max value, and it didn't change anything, so it is surelly not that... :(

Um... how about looking at the documentation? If you google those functions I'm positive you can find the necessary info about them.

I'm sorry, english is not my native language, so I sometimes get some problems to understand exactly the documentation...
Anyway, I just found the problem in the OpenGL FAQ, "12.040 Depth buffering seems to work, but polygons seem to bleed through polygons that are in front of them. What's going on?"...

I changed my zNear and ZFar to 100.0 / 10000.0, and it finally works :)

I still don't perfectly understand the mechanisms of zNear and zFar, but now I know the problem, I'm going to try to understand more documentation about these variables.

Thank you very much szecs and Erik Rufelt !
I increased your user rating :)

The depth-buffer has limited precision, so if zNear is too small or zFar too large, then there are not enough bits to keep track of the possible depth values with high enough precision.
Since you get such large problems I suspect your depth-buffer is only 16 bits, where you probably want 24. I'm not sure how to specify the desired precision using GLUT though.
You can check the precision with:

GLint depthBits;
glGetIntegerv(GL_DEPTH_BITS, &depthBits);

You are perfectly right Erik, glGetIntegerv(GL_DEPTH_BITS, &depthBits) returns 16 to me.
Well, I keep it in mind, 16-bits seems to be enough for the moment, I'm not planning to draw a background in my application for the moment.
Your advices are much appreciated, thank you !

      The Khronos™ Group, an open consortium of leading hardware and software companies, announces from the SIGGRAPH 2017 Conference the immediate public availability of the OpenGL® 4.6 specification. OpenGL 4.6 integrates the functionality of numerous ARB and EXT extensions created by Khronos members AMD, Intel, and NVIDIA into core, including the capability to ingest SPIR-V™ shaders.
      SPIR-V is a Khronos-defined standard intermediate language for parallel compute and graphics, which enables content creators to simplify their shader authoring and management pipelines while providing significant source shading language flexibility. OpenGL 4.6 adds support for ingesting SPIR-V shaders to the core specification, guaranteeing that SPIR-V shaders will be widely supported by OpenGL implementations.
      OpenGL 4.6 adds the functionality of these ARB extensions to OpenGL’s core specification:
      GL_ARB_gl_spirv and GL_ARB_spirv_extensions to standardize SPIR-V support for OpenGL GL_ARB_indirect_parameters and GL_ARB_shader_draw_parameters for reducing the CPU overhead associated with rendering batches of geometry GL_ARB_pipeline_statistics_query and GL_ARB_transform_feedback_overflow_querystandardize OpenGL support for features available in Direct3D GL_ARB_texture_filter_anisotropic (based on GL_EXT_texture_filter_anisotropic) brings previously IP encumbered functionality into OpenGL to improve the visual quality of textured scenes GL_ARB_polygon_offset_clamp (based on GL_EXT_polygon_offset_clamp) suppresses a common visual artifact known as a “light leak” associated with rendering shadows GL_ARB_shader_atomic_counter_ops and GL_ARB_shader_group_vote add shader intrinsics supported by all desktop vendors to improve functionality and performance GL_KHR_no_error reduces driver overhead by allowing the application to indicate that it expects error-free operation so errors need not be generated In addition to the above features being added to OpenGL 4.6, the following are being released as extensions:
      GL_KHR_parallel_shader_compile allows applications to launch multiple shader compile threads to improve shader compile throughput WGL_ARB_create_context_no_error and GXL_ARB_create_context_no_error allow no error contexts to be created with WGL or GLX that support the GL_KHR_no_error extension “I’m proud to announce OpenGL 4.6 as the most feature-rich version of OpenGL yet. We've brought together the most popular, widely-supported extensions into a new core specification to give OpenGL developers and end users an improved baseline feature set. This includes resolving previous intellectual property roadblocks to bringing anisotropic texture filtering and polygon offset clamping into the core specification to enable widespread implementation and usage,” said Piers Daniell, chair of the OpenGL Working Group at Khronos. “The OpenGL working group will continue to respond to market needs and work with GPU vendors to ensure OpenGL remains a viable and evolving graphics API for all its customers and users across many vital industries.“
      The OpenGL 4.6 specification can be found at https://khronos.org/registry/OpenGL/index_gl.php. The GLSL to SPIR-V compiler glslang has been updated with GLSL 4.60 support, and can be found at https://github.com/KhronosGroup/glslang.
      Sophisticated graphics applications will also benefit from a set of newly released extensions for both OpenGL and OpenGL ES to enable interoperability with Vulkan and Direct3D. These extensions are named:
      GL_EXT_memory_object GL_EXT_memory_object_fd GL_EXT_memory_object_win32 GL_EXT_semaphore GL_EXT_semaphore_fd GL_EXT_semaphore_win32 GL_EXT_win32_keyed_mutex They can be found at: https://khronos.org/registry/OpenGL/index_gl.php
      Industry Support for OpenGL 4.6
      “With OpenGL 4.6 our customers have an improved set of core features available on our full range of OpenGL 4.x capable GPUs. These features provide improved rendering quality, performance and functionality. As the graphics industry’s most popular API, we fully support OpenGL and will continue to work closely with the Khronos Group on the development of new OpenGL specifications and extensions for our customers. NVIDIA has released beta OpenGL 4.6 drivers today at https://developer.nvidia.com/opengl-driver so developers can use these new features right away,” said Bob Pette, vice president, Professional Graphics at NVIDIA.
      "OpenGL 4.6 will be the first OpenGL release where conformant open source implementations based on the Mesa project will be deliverable in a reasonable timeframe after release. The open sourcing of the OpenGL conformance test suite and ongoing work between Khronos and X.org will also allow for non-vendor led open source implementations to achieve conformance in the near future," said David Airlie, senior principal engineer at Red Hat, and developer on Mesa/X.org projects.

      Hi,
      I have an OpenGL application but without possibility to wite own shaders.
      I need to perform small VS modification - is possible to do it in an alternative way? Do we have apps or driver modifictions which will catch the shader sent to GPU and override it?

      Does sync be needed to read texture content after access texture image in compute shader?
      My simple code is as below,
      glUseProgram(program.get());
      glBindImageTexture(0, texture[0], 0, GL_FALSE, 3, GL_READ_ONLY, GL_R32UI);
      glBindImageTexture(1, texture[1], 0, GL_FALSE, 4, GL_WRITE_ONLY, GL_R32UI);
      glDispatchCompute(1, 1, 1);
      // Does sync be needed here?
      glUseProgram(0);
      glBindFramebuffer(GL_READ_FRAMEBUFFER, framebuffer);
      glFramebufferTexture2D(GL_READ_FRAMEBUFFER, GL_COLOR_ATTACHMENT0,
                                     GL_TEXTURE_CUBE_MAP_POSITIVE_X + face, texture[1], 0);
      glReadPixels(0, 0, kWidth, kHeight, GL_RED_INTEGER, GL_UNSIGNED_INT, outputValues);
       
      Compute shader is very simple, imageLoad content from texture[0], and imageStore content to texture[1]. Does need to sync after dispatchCompute?
