I'm trying to render a hemisphere in opengl, the problem that the hemisphere isn't rendered at all, only part of it. I initialize it, then at each frame I draw it using the following code. I'm trying to use a VBO for drawing it.


void Jellyfish::Init_HemiSphere(const float radius, const int segments )
{
m_iSegements = segments;
m_fVerts= new float[(segments+1)*2*3];
m_fNormals= new float[(segments+1)*2*3];
m_fTexCoords = new float[(segments+1)*2*2];

for( int j = 0; j < segments / 2; j++ )
{
float theta1 = j * 2 * 3.14159f / segments - ( 3.14159f );
float theta2 = (j + 1) * 2 * 3.14159f / segments - ( 3.14159f );
for( int i = 0; i <= segments; i++ )
{
Vec3f e, p;
float theta3 = i * 2 * 3.14159f / segments;
e.x = math<float>::cos( theta1 ) * math<float>::cos( theta3 );
e.y = math<float>::sin( theta1 );
e.z = math<float>::cos( theta1 ) * math<float>::sin( theta3 );
p = e * radius;
m_fNormals[i*3*2+0] = e.x; m_fNormals[i*3*2+1] = e.y; m_fNormals[i*3*2+2] = e.z;
m_fTexCoords[i*2*2+0] = 0.999f - i / (float)segments; m_fTexCoords[i*2*2+1] = 0.999f - 2 * j / (float)segments;
m_fVerts[i*3*2+0] = p.x; m_fVerts[i*3*2+1] = p.y; m_fVerts[i*3*2+2] = p.z;
e.x = math<float>::cos( theta2 ) * math<float>::cos( theta3 );
e.y = math<float>::sin( theta2 );
e.z = math<float>::cos( theta2 ) * math<float>::sin( theta3 );
p = e * radius;
m_fNormals[i*3*2+3] = e.x; m_fNormals[i*3*2+4] = e.y; m_fNormals[i*3*2+5] = e.z;
m_fTexCoords[i*2*2+2] = 0.999f - i / (float)segments; m_fTexCoords[i*2*2+3] = 0.999f - 2 * ( j + 1 ) / (float)segments;
m_fVerts[i*3*2+3] = p.x; m_fVerts[i*3*2+4] = p.y; m_fVerts[i*3*2+5] = p.z;
}

}
glGenBuffers(3,&SVboId[0]);
//Vertex
glBindBuffer(GL_ARRAY_BUFFER,SVboId[0]);
glBufferData(GL_ARRAY_BUFFER,sizeof(m_fVerts),
m_fVerts,GL_DYNAMIC_DRAW);
//Normal
glBindBuffer(GL_ARRAY_BUFFER,SVboId[1]);
glBufferData(GL_ARRAY_BUFFER,sizeof(m_fNormals),
m_fNormals,GL_DYNAMIC_DRAW);
//Textures
glBindBuffer(GL_ARRAY_BUFFER,SVboId[2]);
glBufferData(GL_ARRAY_BUFFER,sizeof(m_fTexCoords),
m_fTexCoords,GL_DYNAMIC_DRAW);

}
void Jellyfish::drawHemiSphere( )
{

glEnableClientState( GL_VERTEX_ARRAY );
glBindBuffer(GL_ARRAY_BUFFER,SVboId[0]);
glVertexPointer( 3, GL_FLOAT, 0, 0 );

for( int j = 0; j < m_iSegements / 2; j++ ) {
glDrawArrays( GL_TRIANGLE_STRIP, 0, (m_iSegements + 1)*2 );
}
glDisableClientState( GL_VERTEX_ARRAY );
glDisableClientState( GL_TEXTURE_COORD_ARRAY );
glDisableClientState( GL_NORMAL_ARRAY );

}

Post a picture. I dont' get this:
for( int j = 0; j < m_iSegements / 2; j++ ) {
glDrawArrays( GL_TRIANGLE_STRIP, 0, (m_iSegements + 1)*2 );
}

You have a local variable j that is never used. Therefore you are drawing the same thing over and over again. Not to mention it always starts at 0. So if all your segments of the sphere are unconnected, then your loop would try to draw 0-100 verts, 0-200 verts, 0-300.
Probably want:
glDrawArrays(GL_TRIANGLE_STRIP, j*number_of_verts_insegment, number_of_verts_insegment); draw 0 to 100, 100 to 200, 200 to 300
