hey there,
im having a bit of trouble with my code as the texture co-ordinates are not binding to the texture :/
would you be so kind as to look at my code and show me where im going wrong, im only just learning opengl but i am a pro at c++.

any insight into my problem is welcome,

also, with gl frustum, how can i make sure there is no warping of models from field of view. i also heard it was depreciated so an alternative would be awesome, thanks!

What does your shader look like?
Is your texture actually loaded? What is the ID returned by soil?
Are your UV coordinates properly loaded?
What does the model look like now?
[/quote]

1. no shader is actualy being loaded for the rendering of the model (should there be?)
2. yes the texture is loaded, the real question is how can i find the ID generated by soil?
3. UV co-ordinates are parsed and are in the 3ds file.
4. model looks just like a lit teapot with no texture.

No, doesn't have to, but I see one being loaded in your program and as I don't know your full code, I don't want to assume you're not doing anything with it.

Well.. Obviously this:
[code]tmpIndex = SOIL_load_OGL_texture(texfilename,SOIL_LOAD_AUTO,SOIL_CREATE_NEW_ID,SOIL_FLAG_MIPMAPS);[/code]
tmpIndex should return something other than 0. If this is 0 it means you are not loading your texture properly.

Also, SOIL takes all the loading for you, do you really need all the texture functions? I'm sure you don't need glGenTextures and glTexImage2D when using SOIL. As far as I know, all you need to do with SOIL is load your texture which returns the ID, which in turn you can use with glBindTexture.

Just make sure they are correct and you use them correctly. I see you allocating texel data as if it has 3 elements, yet in your drawing routine you say there are 2. Also I am not sure if you need to keep binding your buffers that way. (might be wrong on that one, not a complete openGL guru here).

Take baby steps when debugging, make sure all the data is as you expect it should be.

thanks reloaded_,
that actually makes a lot more sense than other feeback i've been getting.

okay so the texture get assigned to the model now but the co-ordinates do not match up to the model.
i have done a bit of modding of my source and i have come up with this:
[CODE]
void Object::applyTexture(const char*texfilename)
{

textureObject = SOIL_load_OGL_texture(texfilename,SOIL_LOAD_AUTO,SOIL_CREATE_NEW_ID,SOIL_FLAG_MIPMAPS);

glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D,textureObject);// use our newest texture
}

void Object::Draw() const
{



// Enable vertex, normal and texture-coordinate arrays.
glEnableClientState(GL_VERTEX_ARRAY);
glEnableClientState(GL_NORMAL_ARRAY);
glEnableClientState(GL_TEXTURE_COORD_ARRAY);



// Bind the VBO with the normals.
glBindBuffer(GL_ARRAY_BUFFER, m_NormalVBO);
// The pointer for the normals is NULL which means that OpenGL will use the currently bound VBO.
glNormalPointer(GL_FLOAT, 0, NULL);

glBindBuffer(GL_ARRAY_BUFFER, m_TexCoordVBO);
glTexCoordPointer(3,GL_FLOAT,sizeof(Lib3dsVector), NULL);
glBindBuffer(GL_ARRAY_BUFFER, m_VertexVBO);
glVertexPointer(3, GL_FLOAT, 0, NULL);
// Render the triangles.
glDrawArrays(GL_TRIANGLES, 0, m_TotalFaces * 3);

glDisableClientState(GL_VERTEX_ARRAY);
glDisableClientState(GL_NORMAL_ARRAY);
glDisableClientState(GL_TEXTURE_COORD_ARRAY);
}
[/CODE]

im really stuck now as i want the texture map to match the object. currently it looks like this:

It's getting somewhere. You changed your texel data to a vector, which I am assuming has 3 components. UV coordinates mostly (if not always) come with 2 Components which was probably what your texel data has. Try changing your code to only us texel data where your texcoord data is concerned.

hmm, bringing it down to two components causes a crash at runtime.

[/quote]

throw strcat("Unable to load ", filename.c_str());

is not fine, read the strcat documentation, while it isn't the cause of your problem it will cause problems if a model fails to load.

i see a few more things:

you are assuming that you'll have 3 times as many vertices and tex coords as faces, this isn't necessarily the case. It shouldn't be possible to have more than 3x the facecount though so in worst case you're only wasting memory, the 3ds format however does support indices which you aren't using, (so i assume you are exporting it so that faces never share vertices (otherwise it wouldn't render properly) its not a very efficient way to do things though. (as your VBOs will be alot bigger than they need to be).
(Other model formats might also allow the number of texcoords to be different from the number of vertices (.3ds doesn't seem to support that though)
(Its still worth reading the vertex and texcoord count from the mesh data rather than making assumptions about it)


This part might warrant a error check and could possibly be the source of your problem:

[code]
if(mesh->texels)
{
memcpy(&texCoords[FinishedFaces*3 + i], mesh->texelL[face->points[ i ]], sizeof(Lib3dsTexel));
//NEW
}

[/code]

If there are no texture coordinates exported in the 3ds file nothing will get copied to texCoords and you'll be using an uninitialized buffer (containing random data) which could be the cause of your wierd results.

okay fixed the strcat to just a normal filename and removed the if(mesh->textels) but still no dice.

I didn't tell you to remove if (mesh-texels)..., i told you to handle the case where texels is 0 allthough now it should most likely crash instead if you don't have texture data exported, (not really a good thing but atleast it rules out a lack of texturecoordinates as the source of the problem).

Have you tried drawing a quad using the texture ? does that look correct ? (if not its a problem with how you load the texture)
What does the teapot look like in your 3d modelling application ? (screenshots would be nice)
What does the teapot look like if you re-import the .3ds file in your 3d modelling application ? (again screenshots)

Did you try changing your UV coordinated from a 3 component container to a 2 component container (like I mentioned earlier)
[/quote]

yes i did but that just made it crash strangely, unless i did it wrong this is what it looked like:
[CODE]

Lib3dsTexel* texCoords = new Lib3dsTexel[m_TotalFaces * 2];

[/CODE]
then,

[CODE]memcpy(&texCoords[FinishedFaces*2 + i], mesh->texelL[face->points[ i ]], sizeof(Lib3dsTexel));[/CODE]

lastly,



[CODE]

glGenBuffers(1, &m_TexCoordVBO);
glBindBuffer(GL_ARRAY_BUFFER, m_TexCoordVBO);
glBufferData(GL_ARRAY_BUFFER, sizeof(Lib3dsTexel) * 2 * m_TotalFaces, texCoords, GL_STATIC_DRAW);


[/CODE]

it generated a massive memory exception :(

Did you try changing your UV coordinated from a 3 component container to a 2 component container (like I mentioned earlier)
[/quote]

yes i did but that just made it crash strangely, unless i did it wrong this is what it looked like:
[CODE]

Lib3dsTexel* texCoords = new Lib3dsTexel[m_TotalFaces * 2];

[/CODE]
then,

[CODE]memcpy(&texCoords[FinishedFaces*2 + i], mesh->texelL[face->points[ i ]], sizeof(Lib3dsTexel));[/CODE]

lastly,



[CODE]

glGenBuffers(1, &m_TexCoordVBO);
glBindBuffer(GL_ARRAY_BUFFER, m_TexCoordVBO);
glBufferData(GL_ARRAY_BUFFER, sizeof(Lib3dsTexel) * 2 * m_TotalFaces, texCoords, GL_STATIC_DRAW);


[/CODE]

That doesn't change the texture coordinate from 3 components to 2 components, that makes you only store texture coordinates for 2 of the 3 points on each triangle.

okay then, could you please tell me how to make it only 2 components?

      Hi all,
       
      I'm starting OpenGL using a tut on the Web. But at this point I would like to know the primitives needed for creating a window using OpenGL. So on Windows and using MS VS 2017, what is the simplest code required to render a window with the title of "First Rectangle", please?

      Hi, New here. 
      I need some help. My fiance and I like to play this mobile game online that goes by real time. Her and I are always working but when we have free time we like to play this game. We don't always got time throughout the day to Queue Buildings, troops, Upgrades....etc.... 
      I was told to look into DLL Injection and OpenGL/DirectX Hooking. Is this true? Is this what I need to learn? 
      How do I read the Android files, or modify the files, or get the in-game tags/variables for the game I want? 
      Any assistance on this would be most appreciated. I been everywhere and seems no one knows or is to lazy to help me out. It would be nice to have assistance for once. I don't know what I need to learn. 
      So links of topics I need to learn within the comment section would be SOOOOO.....Helpful. Anything to just get me started. 
      Thanks,

      Hi all,
      First time poster here, although I've been reading posts here for quite a while. This place has been invaluable for learning graphics programming -- thanks for a great resource!
      Right now, I'm working on a graphics abstraction layer for .NET which supports D3D11, Vulkan, and OpenGL at the moment. I have implemented most of my planned features already, and things are working well. Some remaining features that I am planning are Compute Shaders, and some flavor of read-write shader resources. At the moment, my shaders can just get simple read-only access to a uniform (or constant) buffer, a texture, or a sampler. Unfortunately, I'm having a tough time grasping the distinctions between all of the different kinds of read-write resources that are available. In D3D alone, there seem to be 5 or 6 different kinds of resources with similar but different characteristics. On top of that, I get the impression that some of them are more or less "obsoleted" by the newer kinds, and don't have much of a place in modern code. There seem to be a few pivots:
      The data source/destination (buffer or texture) Read-write or read-only Structured or unstructured (?) Ordered vs unordered (?) These are just my observations based on a lot of MSDN and OpenGL doc reading. For my library, I'm not interested in exposing every possibility to the user -- just trying to find a good "middle-ground" that can be represented cleanly across API's which is good enough for common scenarios.
      Can anyone give a sort of "overview" of the different options, and perhaps compare/contrast the concepts between Direct3D, OpenGL, and Vulkan? I'd also be very interested in hearing how other folks have abstracted these concepts in their libraries.

      I recently started getting into graphics programming (2nd try, first try was many years ago) and I'm working on a 3d rendering engine which I hope to be able to make a 3D game with sooner or later. I have plenty of C++ experience, but not a lot when it comes to graphics, and while it's definitely going much better this time, I'm having trouble figuring out how assets are usually handled by engines.
      I'm not having trouble with handling the GPU resources, but more so with how the resources should be defined and used in the system (materials, models, etc).
      This is my plan now, I've implemented most of it except for the XML parts and factories and those are the ones I'm not sure of at all:
      I have these classes:
      For GPU resources:
      Geometry: holds and manages everything needed to render a geometry: VAO, VBO, EBO. Texture: holds and manages a texture which is loaded into the GPU. Shader: holds and manages a shader which is loaded into the GPU. For assets relying on GPU resources:
      Material: holds a shader resource, multiple texture resources, as well as uniform settings. Mesh: holds a geometry and a material. Model: holds multiple meshes, possibly in a tree structure to more easily support skinning later on? For handling GPU resources:
      ResourceCache<T>: T can be any resource loaded into the GPU. It owns these resources and only hands out handles to them on request (currently string identifiers are used when requesting handles, but all resources are stored in a vector and each handle only contains resource's index in that vector) Resource<T>: The handles given out from ResourceCache. The handles are reference counted and to get the underlying resource you simply deference like with pointers (*handle).  
      And my plan is to define everything into these XML documents to abstract away files:
      Resources.xml for ref-counted GPU resources (geometry, shaders, textures) Resources are assigned names/ids and resource files, and possibly some attributes (what vertex attributes does this geometry have? what vertex attributes does this shader expect? what uniforms does this shader use? and so on) Are reference counted using ResourceCache<T> Assets.xml for assets using the GPU resources (materials, meshes, models) Assets are not reference counted, but they hold handles to ref-counted resources. References the resources defined in Resources.xml by names/ids. The XMLs are loaded into some structure in memory which is then used for loading the resources/assets using factory classes:
      Factory classes for resources:
      For example, a texture factory could contain the texture definitions from the XML containing data about textures in the game, as well as a cache containing all loaded textures. This means it has mappings from each name/id to a file and when asked to load a texture with a name/id, it can look up its path and use a "BinaryLoader" to either load the file and create the resource directly, or asynchronously load the file's data into a queue which then can be read from later to create the resources synchronously in the GL context. These factories only return handles.
      Factory classes for assets:
      Much like for resources, these classes contain the definitions for the assets they can load. For example, with the definition the MaterialFactory will know which shader, textures and possibly uniform a certain material has, and with the help of TextureFactory and ShaderFactory, it can retrieve handles to the resources it needs (Shader + Textures), setup itself from XML data (uniform values), and return a created instance of requested material. These factories return actual instances, not handles (but the instances contain handles).
       
       
      Is this a good or commonly used approach? Is this going to bite me in the ass later on? Are there other more preferable approaches? Is this outside of the scope of a 3d renderer and should be on the engine side? I'd love to receive and kind of advice or suggestions!
      Thanks!

      I 'm learning how to create game by using opengl with c/c++ coding, so here is my fist game. In video description also have game contain in Dropbox. May be I will make it better in future.
      Thanks.
