• Good evening everyone!

I was wondering if there is something equivalent of  GL_NV_blend_equation_advanced for AMD?
Basically I'm trying to find more compatible version of it.

Thank you!

• Hello guys,

How do I know? Why does wavefront not show for me?
I already checked I have non errors yet.

And my download (mega.nz) should it is original but I tried no success...
- Add blend source and png file here I have tried tried,.....

PS: Why is our community not active? I wait very longer. Stop to lie me!
Thanks !

• I wasn't sure if this would be the right place for a topic like this so sorry if it isn't.
I'm currently working on a project for Uni using FreeGLUT to make a simple solar system simulation. I've got to the point where I've implemented all the planets and have used a Scene Graph to link them all together. The issue I'm having with now though is basically the planets and moons orbit correctly at their own orbit speeds.
I'm not really experienced with using matrices for stuff like this so It's likely why I can't figure out how exactly to get it working. This is where I'm applying the transformation matrices, as well as pushing and popping them. This is within the Render function that every planet including the sun and moons will have and run.
if (tag != "Sun") { glRotatef(orbitAngle, orbitRotation.X, orbitRotation.Y, orbitRotation.Z); } glPushMatrix(); glTranslatef(position.X, position.Y, position.Z); glRotatef(rotationAngle, rotation.X, rotation.Y, rotation.Z); glScalef(scale.X, scale.Y, scale.Z); glDrawElements(GL_TRIANGLES, mesh->indiceCount, GL_UNSIGNED_SHORT, mesh->indices); if (tag != "Sun") { glPopMatrix(); } The "If(tag != "Sun")" parts are my attempts are getting the planets to orbit correctly though it likely isn't the way I'm meant to be doing it. So I was wondering if someone would be able to help me? As I really don't have an idea on what I would do to get it working. Using the if statement is truthfully the closest I've got to it working but there are still weird effects like the planets orbiting faster then they should depending on the number of planets actually be updated/rendered.

• Hello everyone,
I have problem with texture

• Hello everyone
For @80bserver8 nice job - I have found Google search. How did you port from Javascript WebGL to C# OpenTK.?
I have been searched Google but it shows f***ing Unity 3D. I really want know how do I understand I want start with OpenTK But I want know where is porting of Javascript and C#?

Thanks!

OpenGL multiple windows/instances and gl::GL_MAX_DRAW_BUFFERS

hi,

my current renderer uses a number of frame+renderbuffers and rendertextures at the moment. I wanted to implenent the possibility to render to multiple independent windows and got multiple OpenGL 3.0 contexts running and at first it worked, without render buffers on the other windows.

But when the second windows' scene got more complex and I added renderbuffers and framebuffers the problems began.

GLint maxBuffers;
gl::GetIntegerv(gl::GL_MAX_DRAW_BUFFERS, &maxBuffers);


returns 8, and the first window consumes 5-6. I tried starting my app.exe twice with only 1 window and both ran without any trouble (2 app.exe each 1 window), but when starting only 1 app.exe and having it spawn 2 windows with each a context, i get GL_INVALID_VALUE on gl::GenFramebuffers, which indicates to me that both contexts' buffer count add up.

How can i have my HGLRC's work indepentent like 2 separate apps, within one?

GL_MAX_DRAW_BUFFERS indicate the maximum number of buffers in which you can simultaneously draw, not the number you can create. So your problem is not here.

Do you call wglMakeCurrent in each thread in order to use the correct context?

i do call wglMakeCurrent, but the thing is: i don't call it in each thread, since i only run 1 thread. I do run both window computations and draw methods one after the other. (both windows don't need a lot of computations so this works for me i'd like to keep it simple)

imagine my loop is like:

instance1 = new inst... // an instance containing it's scene logic, window, and opengl context
instance2 = new inst...

while(myloopShouldBeRunning)
{
instance1->update()->draw(); // calls makecurrent does it's stuff and renders
instance2->update()->draw();
}


could the problem be that i run multiple contexts on the same thread?

EDIT:

problem solved

a background worker thread had some old not cleaned up messy code that switched the context in some cases at uncontrolled times...
