I''m experimenting a little with texturing and stuff.. And yesterday I made a room with some texture on all the walls.. And I made a little box in the middle of the room spinning around.. I didn''t want to texture it, so I figured out I just put the wonderfull glColor3f making it green... Yeah, in my dreams.. When I ran the program the box was green alright, but so was the entire room!(?).. It still had the proper texture, but it had this green layer on it.. Really weird I thought, I plundered some with the code, but the same result ever goddamn time i compiled. So, for you hardcore programmers; =) Can''t I do texturing and making colors on some other things at the same time? If I can, how? Yeah It can be a neat effect sometime having the green layer over it all, but that''s not what I want to do at this time. I tried to have some 2d text as well, and color it too.. but the entire room turned out green.. I wanted to have the text green, so it''s distinct from the rest of the world... Not I have to have it untextured, and it''s black or a very dark grey/brown color, so I can barely see the text. Please do some explaining for me Thanks in advance!

it should be simple:
state the color (room color) before you render the room and before you render the box.

good luck

Actually, everytime you make a call to the glColor*f() function, you change an opengl state that sets all objects to that defined colour. What you need to do, is reset this colour state after.

ie.

glColor3f(0,0,1) //green
DrawGreenObject;

glColor3f(1,1,1) //reset colour to pure white
DrawAllOtherObjects;

Ya I got same problem that is why I came here. But I got new problem after I corrected my script as wAVaRiaN suggested to fix the glcolor3f. When I switched my textured object into transparent the white color remain and only black color on texture map transparented. It is more like color keying. Is there a way to limit glColor3f on a single 3D object without affecting to anything else?

you have to realize OpenGL is a state machine. Color is just a ste in it. Once you set it to some color, that same color will be used until you specify another one. So after drawing your object with green change it to white and everything should be OK

Waldoo : if you use alpha blending you should use :
glColor4f( red, green, blue, ALPHA );

Hi !

I got the same problem when I first use the Nehe BaseCode v2.

The rule to be sure to have exactly what you want is :
Specify your settings (including Texture, then color if appliable, blending, lighting,..., whatever your think you should force to get the proper result)

//Draw the room//1. Ensure you have the right textureglBindTexture(my_room_texture); //my_room_texture is a texture from a picture, so no color to setDrawMyRoom();//Draw the cube//1. Ensure you have the right textureglBindTexture(0);//2. Texture 0 is a solid colored texture, so//you should specify the colorglColor3f(0,0,1); //greenDrawMyCube();

if you want solid color cube you dont need solit texture.. just disable texturing and use colors only. glDisable( GL_TEXTURE_2D );
