      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.

OpenCL/OpenGL interoperability error

1 post in this topic

Hello,

 

I'm trying to establish interop between CL and GL, the tutorials are very straightforward and everything looks to be set correctly, however, when I try to get a cl_mem from a VBO index, the error CL_INVALID_GL_OBJECT appears and I don't know what I'm doing wrong.

 

#include <SDL/SDL.h>
#include <GL/glew.h>
#include <GL/glx.h>
#include <stdio.h>

#ifdef __APPLE__
	#include <OpenCL/opencl.h>
#else
	#include <CL/cl.h>
	#include <CL/cl_gl.h>
#endif

//#define FULLSCREEN

int main(int argc, char *argv[])
{

	//******************
	//Setting up window.
	//******************

	int videoFlags;
	SDL_VideoInfo *videoInfo;

	SDL_Init(SDL_INIT_VIDEO);
	videoInfo = (SDL_VideoInfo *)SDL_GetVideoInfo();
	if(!videoInfo)
	{
		printf("Error: SDL failed to determine video info.");
		return false;
	}

	videoFlags = SDL_OPENGL | SDL_GL_DOUBLEBUFFER | SDL_HWSURFACE;
	#ifdef FULLSCREEN
		videoFlags += SDL_FULLSCREEN;
	#endif

	SDL_SetVideoMode(videoInfo->current_w,
			 videoInfo->current_h,
			 videoInfo->vfmt->BitsPerPixel,
			 videoFlags);

	//************************
	//Setting up openGL state.
	//************************

	glewInit();

	//******************************************************
	//Setting up openCL state and share context with openGL.
	//******************************************************

	cl_int state;
	cl_platform_id platform[100];
	cl_context context;
	cl_device_id devices[100];

	//Get platform.
	cl_uint numberOfPlatforms = 0;
	if(clGetPlatformIDs(100, platform, &numberOfPlatforms) != CL_SUCCESS)
	{
		printf("OpenCL Error: Platform couldn't be found.\n");
		return 0;
	}
	else
	{
		printf("%i platforms found.\n", numberOfPlatforms);
	}

	//Parameters needed to bind OpenGL's context to OpenCL's.
	cl_context_properties properties[] = {	CL_GL_CONTEXT_KHR, (cl_context_properties) glXGetCurrentContext(),
						CL_GLX_DISPLAY_KHR, (cl_context_properties) glXGetCurrentDisplay(),
						CL_CONTEXT_PLATFORM, (cl_context_properties) platform[0],
						0};

	//Find openGL devices.
	typedef CL_API_ENTRY cl_int (CL_API_CALL *CLpointer)(const cl_context_properties *properties, cl_gl_context_info param_name, size_t param_value_size, void *param_value, size_t *param_value_size_ret);
	CL_API_ENTRY cl_int (CL_API_CALL *myCLGetGLContextInfoKHR)(const cl_context_properties *properties, cl_gl_context_info param_name, size_t param_value_size, void *param_value, size_t *param_value_size_ret) = (CLpointer)clGetExtensionFunctionAddressForPlatform(platform[0], "clGetGLContextInfoKHR");

	size_t size;
	state = myCLGetGLContextInfoKHR(properties, CL_DEVICES_FOR_GL_CONTEXT_KHR, 100*sizeof(cl_device_id), devices, &size);

	if(state != CL_SUCCESS)
	{
		printf("OpenCL Error: Devices couldn't be resolved.\n");
		return 0;
	}
	else
	{
		printf("%i devices support OpenGL/OpenCL interoperability.\n", (int)(size/sizeof(cl_device_id)));
	}

	//Create context.
	context = clCreateContext(properties, 1, &devices[0], NULL, NULL, &state);
	if(state != CL_SUCCESS)
	{
		printf("OpenCL Error: Context couldn't be created.\n");
		return 0;
	}
	else
	{
		printf("Context succesfully created.\n");
	}

	//Create VBO and grant read and write access to openCL.
	GLuint vbo;
	glGenBuffers(1, &vbo);
	glBindBuffer(GL_ARRAY_BUFFER, vbo);
	glBufferData(GL_ARRAY_BUFFER, 400, NULL, GL_STATIC_DRAW);
	cl_mem mem = clCreateFromGLBuffer(context, CL_MEM_WRITE_ONLY, vbo, &state);
	if(state != CL_SUCCESS)
	{
		printf("Error creating memory object from VBO! (CL_INVALID_GL_OBJECT = -60) and (state = %i)\n", state);
	}
	else
	{
		printf("Memory object created succesfully from VBO!\n");
	}

	printf("GLCL finished. Bye!");
	return 0;
}

Has anyone ever encoutered this issue and dealt with it successfully? I'm trying AMD forums to get a solution but so far I have found nothing useful.

 

I'm running this program in Ubuntu and the programming language is CPP, I've managed to get an OpenCL program working, the problem is getting OpenCL to acess OpenGL objects. Also, I'm using SDL to construct the OpenGL window.

 

Thanks and best regards!

Ok, so I was able to solve the issue myself by searching the AMD forums.

 

Here's the solution if anyone else stumbles upon this:

 

My program was linking to OpenCL from "/opt/AMDAPP/lib/x86_64/libOpenCL.so" so, instead, I tried linking to "usr/lib/fglrx/libOpenCL.so" and it worked. Now I can build the context and acess OpenGL VBOs.
