Hi,

 

we will be doing an Opengl ES game in android tas our next project, our first step is to create our level editor in desktop.

so my question is, is it possible to somehow to develop a level editor that is running on OpenGL ES on desktop? If so then how?

do we need to use an emulator? or is there any existing wrapper for OGL ES to work on desktop?

 

need your thoughts about this guys.

Yeah, you can use OpenGL ES on desktop computers. However it is both platform and GPU dependent approaches for this to work. If you are using linux, just download the mesa-gles drivers, or even better find the vendor specific drivers for GLES.

I suggest to use the SDK from the GPU vendor on windows, which is http://developer.amd.com/tools-and-sdks/graphics-development/amd-opengl-es-sdk/ for AMD and https://developer.nvidia.com/tegra-resources for Nvidia.
Look here for installation instructions for Nvidia emulator: http://developer.download.nvidia.com/tegra/docs/win_es2emu_pack_v100.pdf

 

You may also look at http://www.imgtec.com/powervr/insider/sdkdownloads/index.asp for a platform independent solution.

 

Good luck, and remember I have yet not found a 100 % stable solution for my hardware setup, so don't expect to much, and happy debugging ;)
