      Good evening everyone!

      I was wondering if there is something equivalent of  GL_NV_blend_equation_advanced for AMD?
      Basically I'm trying to find more compatible version of it.

      Thank you!

      Hello guys, 
      Please tell me! 
      How do I know? Why does wavefront not show for me?
      I already checked I have non errors yet.
      using OpenTK; using System.Collections.Generic; using System.IO; using System.Text; namespace Tutorial_08.net.sourceskyboxer { public class WaveFrontLoader { private static List<Vector3> inPositions; private static List<Vector2> inTexcoords; private static List<Vector3> inNormals; private static List<float> positions; private static List<float> texcoords; private static List<int> indices; public static RawModel LoadObjModel(string filename, Loader loader) { inPositions = new List<Vector3>(); inTexcoords = new List<Vector2>(); inNormals = new List<Vector3>(); positions = new List<float>(); texcoords = new List<float>(); indices = new List<int>(); int nextIdx = 0; using (var reader = new StreamReader(File.Open("Contents/" + filename + ".obj", FileMode.Open), Encoding.UTF8)) { string line = reader.ReadLine(); int i = reader.Read(); while (true) { string[] currentLine = line.Split(); if (currentLine[0] == "v") { Vector3 pos = new Vector3(float.Parse(currentLine[1]), float.Parse(currentLine[2]), float.Parse(currentLine[3])); inPositions.Add(pos); if (currentLine[1] == "t") { Vector2 tex = new Vector2(float.Parse(currentLine[1]), float.Parse(currentLine[2])); inTexcoords.Add(tex); } if (currentLine[1] == "n") { Vector3 nom = new Vector3(float.Parse(currentLine[1]), float.Parse(currentLine[2]), float.Parse(currentLine[3])); inNormals.Add(nom); } } if (currentLine[0] == "f") { Vector3 pos = inPositions[0]; positions.Add(pos.X); positions.Add(pos.Y); positions.Add(pos.Z); Vector2 tc = inTexcoords[0]; texcoords.Add(tc.X); texcoords.Add(tc.Y); indices.Add(nextIdx); ++nextIdx; } reader.Close(); return loader.loadToVAO(positions.ToArray(), texcoords.ToArray(), indices.ToArray()); } } } } } And It have tried other method but it can't show for me.  I am mad now. Because any OpenTK developers won't help me.
      Please help me how do I fix.

      And my download (mega.nz) should it is original but I tried no success...
      - Add blend source and png file here I have tried tried,.....  
      PS: Why is our community not active? I wait very longer. Stop to lie me!
      Thanks !

      I wasn't sure if this would be the right place for a topic like this so sorry if it isn't.
      I'm currently working on a project for Uni using FreeGLUT to make a simple solar system simulation. I've got to the point where I've implemented all the planets and have used a Scene Graph to link them all together. The issue I'm having with now though is basically the planets and moons orbit correctly at their own orbit speeds.
      I'm not really experienced with using matrices for stuff like this so It's likely why I can't figure out how exactly to get it working. This is where I'm applying the transformation matrices, as well as pushing and popping them. This is within the Render function that every planet including the sun and moons will have and run.
      if (tag != "Sun") { glRotatef(orbitAngle, orbitRotation.X, orbitRotation.Y, orbitRotation.Z); } glPushMatrix(); glTranslatef(position.X, position.Y, position.Z); glRotatef(rotationAngle, rotation.X, rotation.Y, rotation.Z); glScalef(scale.X, scale.Y, scale.Z); glDrawElements(GL_TRIANGLES, mesh->indiceCount, GL_UNSIGNED_SHORT, mesh->indices); if (tag != "Sun") { glPopMatrix(); } The "If(tag != "Sun")" parts are my attempts are getting the planets to orbit correctly though it likely isn't the way I'm meant to be doing it. So I was wondering if someone would be able to help me? As I really don't have an idea on what I would do to get it working. Using the if statement is truthfully the closest I've got to it working but there are still weird effects like the planets orbiting faster then they should depending on the number of planets actually be updated/rendered.

      Hello everyone
      For @80bserver8 nice job - I have found Google search. How did you port from Javascript WebGL to C# OpenTK.?
      I have been searched Google but it shows f***ing Unity 3D. I really want know how do I understand I want start with OpenTK But I want know where is porting of Javascript and C#?

OpenGL Resolution settings, screen behaving unexplainably

So I've been trying to get resolution setting to work correctly in my game for a while to no avail. I have a 16:9 ratio which I am trying to keep constant. I am using SDL with openGL. And here's my changing resolution class:


#include "Main.h"

class Resolution{


static void ChangeResolution(SDL_Surface* Screen,int Width,int Height, bool FullScreen){
int Full = 0;
Screen = SDL_SetVideoMode(Width , Height, 32, SDL_HWSURFACE | SDL_GL_DOUBLEBUFFER | SDL_OPENGL| Full);

glClearColor(0, 0, 0, 0);

glViewport(0, 0, Width, Height);


//glOrtho(0, Width, Height, 0, 1, -1);
glOrtho(0, 960,540, 0, 1, -1);






Now at first I had glOrtho set to scale along with the window size and view port, but that made me see more of the screen as the window size got larger, which wasn't what I wanted. So by setting the camera (glOrtho is like the camera right?) To a constant width and height I was able to always see the same portion of the screen. So far so good.

Now trying the game in window mode, everything works exactly as it should. The game's graphics scale, keeping the aspect ratio, and I always see the same portion of the screen.

Now trying full screen on a 5:4 monitor, this is what I get:


Left: 960x540--- Middle:1024x576--- Right:1200x675

As you can see, only the one in the middle is working as it should, it's stretched to fill the screen, but not stretched to destroy the aspect ratio. The one on the left is keeping it's aspect ratio, but not scaling enough.

The one on the right is getting stretched vertically and the aspect ratio is broken. Why is that? Why would it get stretched like that?
Also, how would I go about centering the screen so that, on the middle monitor, the would be a black space on top and bottom, not just one big one at top?

Additional info:

When I try this on a 16:10 laptop, I get similar results with the screen not being scaled enough or not being centered, but it never stretched. Even setting it at a huge resolution of 1920,1080. It exactly scales more than the screen such that I only see a small part, but I'm guessing you can't really squeeze a 1920x1080 on a much smaller resolution.

So my question is really: Why is the resolution thing being completely unpredictable? Sometimes it stretches, sometimes it doesn't scale enough, etc.. and how do I fix that?

For each screen size you need to set up a custom glViewport parameters which can be done manually or by formula...
'Width' - a full-screen window width.
'Height' - a full-screen window heght.
I want to do make my screen quadratic (adopting to window width and height) which aligned to center:

glViewport((Width-Height)/2,0,Height,Height); // I took 'Height' as minimal value, so I would have it work on displays which it's width is larget than height

result will look like this:
+-------+--------------+-------+ < my display
'*' - black pixel.
I want to make my screen like film look (let say: 800x320) to get a result like watching a video (with these dimensions) in media player full-screen mode:

float aspectToY = 320.0f/800.0f;
int w = Width;
int h = int(float(w)*aspectToY); //!!! correct me if this is wrong.
glViewport(0, (Height - h) / 2, w, h); // NOTE: this would work if 'height'(ex:320) <= 'width'(ex:800).

the result should be like this (for example if my display would be 800x600):
+---------------------------+ << my display

extra information: OpenGL viewport coordinate system (for glViewport setup):
---------window top-------
|......\offset (x,y)
------------------------> -width
---window bottom-----

As you see (in your screen-shots) screen always aligned on left-bottom corner.
Another thing can be happen:
when your display (monitor) first time using these WxH settings sometimes it could do some shift&amp;scale operation which produces strange screen results...
If this was happend, on LCD\LED monitors do: Menu->Settings->Reset:true

Best wishes, FXACE.

Thank you for the very detailed post and explanation FXACE! I really really appreciate it!

So I've successful managed to get it to work like a movie, and it works perfectly in the window. However, back in full screen, I still game very similar results.

We know the viewport is working now, could it be something else? If it helps, when I try to move my mouse into the black bars in the full screen window, sometimes the mouse can't go there, other times it can.

I'm also curious about this part:

I'm on a laptop, I'm not sure if I have these settings.

Again, thank you very much for all the help so far (and in the other thread too!)

From my own experience:
When I'm launching game application which enters to full-screen mode (640x480) on my monitors (LG FLATRONs 1920x1080 & 1680x1050) some part of game's screen becomes outside display or not fully stretched to entire display (some parts of screen are not used). If I would set Menu->Settings->Reset:true (on 640x480 mode) it would automatically, correctly changed (as I expect) and saves in monitor's memory (to load next time shift/scale settings when switching to 640x480 again, this settings are customized and located in each resolution mode).

Labtops have some settings for display (accessed with 'fn' key) but I'm not sure do they have these settings.

If you tested some full-screen applications (with modes:960x540, 1024x576, 1200x675) and they were correctly showed, so this is not a display issue.

I have no experience work with SDL(sorry) but I'm curious about this lines (from your code):

static void ChangeResolution(SDL_Surface* Screen,int Width,int Height, bool FullScreen)
Screen = SDL_SetVideoMode(...)

Is your 'Screen' an output variable too? If yes, you need to change from:

SDL_Surface* Screen // when calling a function with this argument instruct a pointer (which holds an address) would be dublicated


SDL_Surface* &Screen // with this your variable is now linked to input pointer

Best wishes, FXACE.
