      Download the Game Design and Indie Game Marketing Freebook   07/19/17

      GameDev.net and CRC Press have teamed up to bring a free ebook of content curated from top titles published by CRC Press. The freebook, Practices of Game Design & Indie Game Marketing, includes chapters from The Art of Game Design: A Book of Lenses, A Practical Guide to Indie Game Marketing, and An Architectural Approach to Level Design. The GameDev.net FreeBook is relevant to game designers, developers, and those interested in learning more about the challenges in game development. We know game development can be a tough discipline and business, so we picked several chapters from CRC Press titles that we thought would be of interest to you, the GameDev.net audience, in your journey to design, develop, and market your next game. The free ebook is available through CRC Press by clicking here. The Curated Books The Art of Game Design: A Book of Lenses, Second Edition, by Jesse Schell Presents 100+ sets of questions, or different lenses, for viewing a game’s design, encompassing diverse fields such as psychology, architecture, music, film, software engineering, theme park design, mathematics, anthropology, and more. Written by one of the world's top game designers, this book describes the deepest and most fundamental principles of game design, demonstrating how tactics used in board, card, and athletic games also work in video games. It provides practical instruction on creating world-class games that will be played again and again. View it here. A Practical Guide to Indie Game Marketing, by Joel Dreskin Marketing is an essential but too frequently overlooked or minimized component of the release plan for indie games. A Practical Guide to Indie Game Marketing provides you with the tools needed to build visibility and sell your indie games. With special focus on those developers with small budgets and limited staff and resources, this book is packed with tangible recommendations and techniques that you can put to use immediately. As a seasoned professional of the indie game arena, author Joel Dreskin gives you insight into practical, real-world experiences of marketing numerous successful games and also provides stories of the failures. View it here. An Architectural Approach to Level Design This is one of the first books to integrate architectural and spatial design theory with the field of level design. The book presents architectural techniques and theories for level designers to use in their own work. It connects architecture and level design in different ways that address the practical elements of how designers construct space and the experiential elements of how and why humans interact with this space. Throughout the text, readers learn skills for spatial layout, evoking emotion through gamespaces, and creating better levels through architectural theory. View it here.

driver bug?

7 posts in this topic

Hi,

I'm trying to do some rendering to cube maps, and I ran into this bug.

the code below crashes on the glCheckFramebuffer() call, on this machine :
xUbuntu 12.04 64 bit, Catalyst 12.8 64 bit, AMD A8-4500M
I believe this is a driver bug, because the frame stack ended there.
So is this one? Or am I doing something wrong?

[CODE]
GLuint cubemap_tex = 0;
int w = 256;
int h = 256;

glGenTextures( 1, &cubemap_tex );
glBindTexture( GL_TEXTURE_2D, cubemap_tex );

glTexParameteri( GL_TEXTURE_CUBE_MAP, GL_TEXTURE_WRAP_S, GL_CLAMP_TO_EDGE );
glTexParameteri( GL_TEXTURE_CUBE_MAP, GL_TEXTURE_WRAP_T, GL_CLAMP_TO_EDGE );
glTexParameteri( GL_TEXTURE_CUBE_MAP, GL_TEXTURE_WRAP_R, GL_CLAMP_TO_EDGE );
glTexParameteri( GL_TEXTURE_CUBE_MAP, GL_TEXTURE_MIN_FILTER, GL_LINEAR );
glTexParameteri( GL_TEXTURE_CUBE_MAP, GL_TEXTURE_MAG_FILTER, GL_LINEAR );

glTexImage2D( GL_TEXTURE_CUBE_MAP_POSITIVE_X, 0, GL_RGBA16F, w, h, 0, GL_RGBA, GL_FLOAT, 0 );
glTexImage2D( GL_TEXTURE_CUBE_MAP_POSITIVE_Y, 0, GL_RGBA16F, w, h, 0, GL_RGBA, GL_FLOAT, 0 );
glTexImage2D( GL_TEXTURE_CUBE_MAP_POSITIVE_Z, 0, GL_RGBA16F, w, h, 0, GL_RGBA, GL_FLOAT, 0 );
glTexImage2D( GL_TEXTURE_CUBE_MAP_NEGATIVE_X, 0, GL_RGBA16F, w, h, 0, GL_RGBA, GL_FLOAT, 0 );
glTexImage2D( GL_TEXTURE_CUBE_MAP_NEGATIVE_Y, 0, GL_RGBA16F, w, h, 0, GL_RGBA, GL_FLOAT, 0 );
glTexImage2D( GL_TEXTURE_CUBE_MAP_NEGATIVE_Z, 0, GL_RGBA16F, w, h, 0, GL_RGBA, GL_FLOAT, 0 );

GLuint cubemap_fbo = 0;

glGenFramebuffers( 1, &cubemap_fbo );
glBindFramebuffer( GL_FRAMEBUFFER, cubemap_fbo );

GLenum mode = GL_COLOR_ATTACHMENT0;
glDrawBuffers( 1, &mode );

glFramebufferTexture2D( GL_FRAMEBUFFER, GL_COLOR_ATTACHMENT0, GL_TEXTURE_CUBE_MAP_POSITIVE_X, cubemap_tex, 0 );

GLenum error_code = glCheckFramebufferStatus( GL_FRAMEBUFFER ); //crashes here
glBindFramebuffer( GL_FRAMEBUFFER, 0 );
[/CODE]

Try calling [font=courier new,courier,monospace]glGetError()[/font] after every OpenGL call to see if any of them are creating a problematic/erroneous state. [url="http://stackoverflow.com/questions/2569888/opengl-es-2-0-fbo-creation-goes-wrong-with-unknown-error"]I also came across this, which may be of some help[/url].

thanks for the reply, but getting the errors didn't help (no errors), still crashes... however what you linked in gave me an idea, and I replaced the texture binding call with:
glBindTexture( GL_TEXTURE_CUBE_MAP, cubemap_tex );

and this solved the problem. So I believe this is a driver bug. It shouldn't crash under any circumstances, right? Edited by Yours3!f

Well... not necessarily. For example, if you give it a garbage pointer or size and cause it to commit an access violation, it's free to crash.

I'm not much of a video programmer, but here's my guess as to why it crashed: [url="http://www.opengl.org/sdk/docs/man/xhtml/glTexImage2D.xml"]glTexImage2D[/url] requires you to pass a pointer to the texture data, and in your OP you're passing 0. If you read the docs for that function, it says "If [font=courier new,courier,monospace]target[/font] is [font=courier new,courier,monospace]GL_PROXY_TEXTURE_2D[/font], [font=courier new,courier,monospace]GL_PROXY_TEXTURE_1D_ARRAY[/font], [font=courier new,courier,monospace]GL_PROXY_TEXTURE_CUBE_MAP[/font], or [font=courier new,courier,monospace]GL_PROXY_TEXTURE_RECTANGLE[/font], no data is read from data." In the next paragraph, it says "If target is [font=courier new,courier,monospace]GL_TEXTURE_2D[/font], [font=courier new,courier,monospace]GL_TEXTURE_RECTANGLE[/font] or [b]one of the [font=courier new,courier,monospace]GL_TEXTURE_CUBE_MAP[/font] targets[/b], [b]data is read from data[/b]..." (emphasis mine) This may explain why it crashes. I could be wrong, but that's my hunch.

well it is read if not 0 is passed.
"data may be a null pointer.
In this case, texture memory is
allocated to accommodate a texture of width width and height height.
You can then download subtextures to initialize this
texture memory.
The image is undefined if the user tries to apply
an uninitialized portion of the texture image to a primitive."

and that function didn't crash, but the fbo checker. And that function doesn't receive any pointer.

if after calling [code]glTexParameteri( GL_TEXTURE_CUBE_MAP, GL_TEXTURE_WRAP_S, GL_CLAMP_TO_EDGE );[/code] you did not get error with glGetError then it is a driver bug that it is not reporting error. Because you were binding 2D texture, but operating with cubemap texture.
