I'm having trouble setting up GLFW on Visual Studio 10.0 I was following this guys tutorial. However I am still getting linking errors

 

 

1>GLFW.lib(window.obj) : error LNK2005: __glfwClearWindowHints already defined in window.obj 1>GLFW.lib(window.obj) : error LNK2005: __glfwClearInput already defined in window.obj

1>MSVCRTD.lib(cinitexe.obj) : warning LNK4098: defaultlib 'msvcrt.lib' conflicts with use of other libs; use /NODEFAULTLIB:library

 

 

 I have tried googling the errors but I havent found much help. I have linked opengl32/lib and glu32.lib in the linker settings. I have also linked the appropriate folders for include and lib. I downloaded and linked both the win32 binaries and the original zip from the GLFW site.

 

 

 
#include <windows.h>
#include <stdio.h>   
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <GL/glew.h>
#define GLFW_DLL
#include <GL/glfw.h>
#pragma comment(lib,"glfwdll.lib")
#include <GL/glm/glm.hpp>
 
int main()
{
glfwInit();
glfwSleep( 1.0 );
glfwTerminate();
}

Any help is appreciated..h>.h>.h>

okay, now i get this 1>c:\users\dakota\documents\visual studio 2010\projects\spawngl\main.cpp(13): warning C4005: 'GLFW_DLL' : macro redefinition 1> command-line arguments : see previous definition of 'GLFW_DLL' 1>c:\users\dakota\desktop\glew-1.9.0-win32\glew-1.9.0\include\gl\glew.h(84): fatal error C1189: #error : gl.h included before glew.h 1>

Done. Now I'm getting the same errors as before.

 

1>glfw.lib(window.obj) : error LNK2005: __glfwClearWindowHints already defined in window.obj

etc.

Call glewInit() before glfwInit().

If it doesn't work, maybe you should consider stop using glew, and try something else.

Okay I tried following the instructions here

and I managed to get this

 

but when I type "nmake win32-msys" I get a bunch of errors. Is this the correct one for visual studio 10?

You're not linking to static glfw.lib and DLL at the same time somehow? Also consider switching to GLFW 3.0 and compiling it yourself for your platform. It's almost release-ready, I'm using it for a year and didn't have a single problem (except for name-changes that happened during development of lib, but its just minor inconvenience).

By the way, any reason why you're not linking GLFW as static lib? Edited by noizex

Not sure what that means, I'm kinda new to OpenGL and Visual Studio. Explain? :)

Do you think that would work for this turorial? If so then I'm all ears.

Again, I'm not sure how to do this. help?

Take a look at my glew + glfw sample here: https://github.com/dougbinks/glewfw for a working example.

 

Remember to set the example as the start project before running it, and if you have any issues let me know - I'll be travelling for a day or so but should be able to help after that. Note that if you don't have git you can just click on the ZIP button to download a zip of the current code.

Thanks! I set example as the startup, and the build succeeds, however I get an example.exe error window afterwards. :/

 

"The application was unable to start correctly (0xc000000d). Click OK to close the application."

 

I tried setting glewfw as the startup after this and I got...

 

"Unable to start application

C:\blablabla\glewfw\debug\glewfw.dll"

 

*Sigh* Anything I can do about this?

Okay so I followed this guys tutorial this time.

I was able to build all of the projects for GLFW 3.0

So now I'm going in and editing them while following the tutorial on open.gl/context

More specifically I took the "triangle" project and started it from scratch to follow said tutorial.

But Functions like glfwSleep() and glfwOpenWindowHint() are still undefined. Are these not used in GLFW 3.0?

Can I not use GLFW 3.0 for this tutorial?

Have a look at GLFW 3.0 examples to see how to setup basic window. Yes, some things are gone in GLFW3, including these 2 functions you mentioned.

Use glfwWindowHint instead, and threading support was removed from GLFW. Best look at provided examples/tests and into code - thats best reference for now (although there was a link to PDF with GLFW3 reference, it may be a bit outdated but its better than nothing, I will post it when I find it)

Got it, glfwCreateWindow(); seems to be the new sensation.

 

Thanks for the help. Is there anything else I should know before I continue with GLFW 3.0? 

Also, is it possible to use two libraries at the same time? Say SFML 2.0 and GLFW 3.0? Are there any advantages to this? 

 

Sorry for the bombardment of questions, I admire your knowledge and I truly appreciate they help you (and everyone else) has given me. 

Onward with OpenGL!

Not really, just make sure to work on most recent source and keep in mind that API still changes so you may find yourself in a situation where some function name was renamed.
 

Also, is it possible to use two libraries at the same time? Say SFML 2.0 and GLFW 3.0? Are there any advantages to this?


Not sure if its possible, but its rather pointless as these two libraries have duplicate functionality. Both are used to create GL context, but SFML offers much more (just check the site for all the modules it has). GLFW is solely focused on getting you a GL context and handles events in a created window(s). It does nothing more, which is nice if you want to do things yourself rather than rely on a big library to do everything for you (SFML).

If you really want to learn OpenGL I guess its worth going minimal and learn the basics rather than have a library do it for you (SFML has GL wrappers for most functionality so you can work with it without using the low level API at all).

[Edited as miss-read some of the original post]

Do you have the call stack from the debug session of what happened when trying to run the example - I've run this on several computers with no problems so it might be something simple for me to fix if I can get enough information. Edited by dougbinks

      For those that don't know me. I am the individual who's two videos are listed here under setup for https://wiki.libsdl.org/Tutorials
      I also run grhmedia.com where I host the projects and code for the tutorials I have online.
      Recently, I received a notice from youtube they will be implementing their new policy in protecting video content as of which I won't be monetized till I meat there required number of viewers and views each month.

      Frankly, I'm pretty sick of youtube. I put up a video and someone else learns from it and puts up another video and because of the way youtube does their placement they end up with more views.
      Even guys that clearly post false information such as one individual who said GLEW 2.0 was broken because he didn't know how to compile it. He in short didn't know how to modify the script he used because he didn't understand make files and how the requirements of the compiler and library changes needed some different flags.

      At the end of the month when they implement this I will take down the content and host on my own server purely and it will be a paid system and or patreon. 

      I get my videos may be a bit dry, I generally figure people are there to learn how to do something and I rather not waste their time. 
      I used to also help people for free even those coming from the other videos. That won't be the case any more. I used to just take anyone emails and work with them my email is posted on the site.

      I don't expect to get the required number of subscribers in that time or increased views. Even if I did well it wouldn't take care of each reoccurring month.
      I figure this is simpler and I don't plan on putting some sort of exorbitant fee for a monthly subscription or the like.
      I was thinking on the lines of a few dollars 1,2, and 3 and the larger subscription gets you assistance with the content in the tutorials if needed that month.
      Maybe another fee if it is related but not directly in the content. 
      The fees would serve to cut down on the number of people who ask for help and maybe encourage some of the people to actually pay attention to what is said rather than do their own thing. That actually turns out to be 90% of the issues. I spent 6 hours helping one individual last week I must have asked him 20 times did you do exactly like I said in the video even pointed directly to the section. When he finally sent me a copy of the what he entered I knew then and there he had not. I circled it and I pointed out that wasn't what I said to do in the video. I didn't tell him what was wrong and how I knew that way he would go back and actually follow what it said to do. He then reported it worked. Yea, no kidding following directions works. But hey isn't alone and well its part of the learning process.

      So the point of this isn't to be a gripe session. I'm just looking for a bit of feed back. Do you think the fees are unreasonable?
      Should I keep the youtube channel and do just the fees with patreon or do you think locking the content to my site and require a subscription is an idea.

      I'm just looking at the fact it is unrealistic to think youtube/google will actually get stuff right or that youtube viewers will actually bother to start looking for more accurate videos.

      The Khronos™ Group, an open consortium of leading hardware and software companies, announces from the SIGGRAPH 2017 Conference the immediate public availability of the OpenGL® 4.6 specification. OpenGL 4.6 integrates the functionality of numerous ARB and EXT extensions created by Khronos members AMD, Intel, and NVIDIA into core, including the capability to ingest SPIR-V™ shaders.
      SPIR-V is a Khronos-defined standard intermediate language for parallel compute and graphics, which enables content creators to simplify their shader authoring and management pipelines while providing significant source shading language flexibility. OpenGL 4.6 adds support for ingesting SPIR-V shaders to the core specification, guaranteeing that SPIR-V shaders will be widely supported by OpenGL implementations.
      OpenGL 4.6 adds the functionality of these ARB extensions to OpenGL’s core specification:
      GL_ARB_gl_spirv and GL_ARB_spirv_extensions to standardize SPIR-V support for OpenGL GL_ARB_indirect_parameters and GL_ARB_shader_draw_parameters for reducing the CPU overhead associated with rendering batches of geometry GL_ARB_pipeline_statistics_query and GL_ARB_transform_feedback_overflow_querystandardize OpenGL support for features available in Direct3D GL_ARB_texture_filter_anisotropic (based on GL_EXT_texture_filter_anisotropic) brings previously IP encumbered functionality into OpenGL to improve the visual quality of textured scenes GL_ARB_polygon_offset_clamp (based on GL_EXT_polygon_offset_clamp) suppresses a common visual artifact known as a “light leak” associated with rendering shadows GL_ARB_shader_atomic_counter_ops and GL_ARB_shader_group_vote add shader intrinsics supported by all desktop vendors to improve functionality and performance GL_KHR_no_error reduces driver overhead by allowing the application to indicate that it expects error-free operation so errors need not be generated In addition to the above features being added to OpenGL 4.6, the following are being released as extensions:
      GL_KHR_parallel_shader_compile allows applications to launch multiple shader compile threads to improve shader compile throughput WGL_ARB_create_context_no_error and GXL_ARB_create_context_no_error allow no error contexts to be created with WGL or GLX that support the GL_KHR_no_error extension “I’m proud to announce OpenGL 4.6 as the most feature-rich version of OpenGL yet. We've brought together the most popular, widely-supported extensions into a new core specification to give OpenGL developers and end users an improved baseline feature set. This includes resolving previous intellectual property roadblocks to bringing anisotropic texture filtering and polygon offset clamping into the core specification to enable widespread implementation and usage,” said Piers Daniell, chair of the OpenGL Working Group at Khronos. “The OpenGL working group will continue to respond to market needs and work with GPU vendors to ensure OpenGL remains a viable and evolving graphics API for all its customers and users across many vital industries.“
      The OpenGL 4.6 specification can be found at https://khronos.org/registry/OpenGL/index_gl.php. The GLSL to SPIR-V compiler glslang has been updated with GLSL 4.60 support, and can be found at https://github.com/KhronosGroup/glslang.
      Sophisticated graphics applications will also benefit from a set of newly released extensions for both OpenGL and OpenGL ES to enable interoperability with Vulkan and Direct3D. These extensions are named:
      GL_EXT_memory_object GL_EXT_memory_object_fd GL_EXT_memory_object_win32 GL_EXT_semaphore GL_EXT_semaphore_fd GL_EXT_semaphore_win32 GL_EXT_win32_keyed_mutex They can be found at: https://khronos.org/registry/OpenGL/index_gl.php
      Industry Support for OpenGL 4.6
      “With OpenGL 4.6 our customers have an improved set of core features available on our full range of OpenGL 4.x capable GPUs. These features provide improved rendering quality, performance and functionality. As the graphics industry’s most popular API, we fully support OpenGL and will continue to work closely with the Khronos Group on the development of new OpenGL specifications and extensions for our customers. NVIDIA has released beta OpenGL 4.6 drivers today at https://developer.nvidia.com/opengl-driver so developers can use these new features right away,” said Bob Pette, vice president, Professional Graphics at NVIDIA.
      "OpenGL 4.6 will be the first OpenGL release where conformant open source implementations based on the Mesa project will be deliverable in a reasonable timeframe after release. The open sourcing of the OpenGL conformance test suite and ongoing work between Khronos and X.org will also allow for non-vendor led open source implementations to achieve conformance in the near future," said David Airlie, senior principal engineer at Red Hat, and developer on Mesa/X.org projects.

      Hi,
      I have an OpenGL application but without possibility to wite own shaders.
      I need to perform small VS modification - is possible to do it in an alternative way? Do we have apps or driver modifictions which will catch the shader sent to GPU and override it?
