OpenGL Strange problem with functions not working properly on different unit in project

Recommended Posts

So i have a project with lets say two units, one is main unit second is other unit.

I am trying to make glCopyTexSubImage2D to work, when i use exactly same code in main unit it works but it doesnot work in other unit.

code that causes problem is

(i use it in other unit)

	glEnable(GL_TEXTURE_2D);
  glGenTextures(1, &beforetex);       
glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D,beforetex);
glTexEnvi(GL_TEXTURE_ENV, GL_TEXTURE_ENV_MODE, GL_MODULATE);
glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_MAG_FILTER, GL_LINEAR);
glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_MIN_FILTER, GL_LINEAR);
gluBuild2DMipmaps(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_RGBA, 2048, 2048, GL_RGBA, GL_UNSIGNED_BYTE, colorbuffer_pdata);

	glDisable(GL_TEXTURE_2D)

dont even try to tell me that glubuildmipmaps isnt used for ages even glteximage2d does not work so just shut up.

 

 

 

 

when i call this code from main unit glcopytexsubimage2d works, but when this code is called from different unit texture is not updated and i see only white texutre nothing more.

 

i already found that i used two different glCopyTexSubImage2D functions, so i corrected that.

 

 

 

 

here are some addidional details.

other unit contains a Aircraft class which contains Cockpit class which contains HUD class which contains:

   unsigned int *   colorbuffer_pdata;
   unsigned int beforetex;

like i said already or not in other unit i do

colorbuffer_pdata = new unsigned int [2048*2048*4];

then i have to call (in main unit)

glEnable(GL_TEXTURE_2D);
glGenTextures(1, &AUTOS->cockpit->HUD->beforetex);        
glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D,AUTOS->cockpit->HUD->beforetex);
glTexEnvi(GL_TEXTURE_ENV, GL_TEXTURE_ENV_MODE, GL_MODULATE);
glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_MAG_FILTER, GL_LINEAR);
glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_MIN_FILTER, GL_LINEAR);
gluBuild2DMipmaps(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_RGBA, 2048, 2048, GL_RGBA, GL_UNSIGNED_BYTE, AUTOS->cockpit->HUD->colorbuffer_pdata);
glDisable(GL_TEXTURE_2D);

then i can use (in other unit)

Mainunit->glCopyTexSubImage2D(GL_TEXTURE_2D, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, sw, sh);

and it works...

 

it obvious that something is with these functions so i wanted to find their addresses to compare but debugger says it can't find addreses of these functions (i dont know becasue they are opengl function it cant find it)

 

so (in main unit) i decided to make a function that will initialize texture for other unit.

void __fastcall Mainunit::TEXTURE_CREATE(int sw, int sh, unsigned int  tex,unsigned int * pdata)
{
glEnable(GL_TEXTURE_2D);
glGenTextures(1, &tex);         
glBindTexture(GL_TEXTURE_2D,tex);
glTexEnvi(GL_TEXTURE_ENV, GL_TEXTURE_ENV_MODE, GL_MODULATE);
glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_MAG_FILTER, GL_LINEAR);
glTexParameteri(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_TEXTURE_MIN_FILTER, GL_LINEAR);
gluBuild2DMipmaps(GL_TEXTURE_2D, GL_RGBA, 2048, 2048, GL_RGBA, GL_UNSIGNED_BYTE, pdata);
glDisable(GL_TEXTURE_2D);
}

then in other unit after making this unsigned int array i called

Mainunit->TEXTURE_CREATE(2048,2048,beforetex,colorbuffer_pdata);

but it wont work (i get same result: white texture and no update)

 

 

but before making this function i was using different code (in mainunit)

the difference was that  AUTOS->cockpit->HUD->colorbuffer_pdata this unsigned int * was global declarated in other unit

and when i made

 colorbuffer_pdata = new unsigned int [2048*2048*4]; //in other unit

and tried to initialize texture from mainunit it crashed saying acces violation (glubuildbitmaps hex address) violation 000000 so it was saying that i didint create this array pointer or what? it couldnt find it (so i moved colorbuffer_pdata to HUD class and i could initialize texture w/o problems] 

 

So here now some question come: why such limitation occured (acces violation)? and how do i get addresses for glTexParameteri, glTexEnvi, glBindTexture,glGenTextures, glEnable, gluBuild2DMipmaps , GL_TEXTURE_2D,GL_TEXTURE_ENV, GL_TEXTURE_ENV_MODE, GL_MODULATE  etc. so i could compare it to those from main unit.

 

 

OR maybe thers another solution to the problem, 

 

All i need is to initialize texture inside HUD class, but it seems i cant do that.

Hello,

 

Maybe just calling glDisable(GL_TEXTURE_2D) is a problem. In my opinion, in this case you should check if GL_TEXTURE_2D object is enabled during rendering your textured geometry into framebuffer.

Mainunit->gl*

 

looks suspicious to me, is that a different context?

 

Also, you are allocating 2048*2048*4 uints, which is 67mb, instead of the 16.7mb you really wanted.

First, define “unit”. Translation unit?
Second, welcome to the terrible world of state machines, one of the biggest flaws in OpenGL.
For one, your call to glTexEnvi(GL_TEXTURE_ENV, GL_TEXTURE_ENV_MODE, GL_MODULATE); is meaningless there; that is not a state related to textures.  Set it before drawing, not when creating a texture.

For another, as a state machine, things 10 miles away in other parts of your code can affect this part of your code.

 

Also, contexts?  How many?  Which is active when?

Is the texture enabled?

 

Use a debugger such as gDEBugger and figure out what states are set and the contents of the texture.

      Hello! As an exercise for delving into modern OpenGL, I'm creating a simple .obj renderer. I want to support things like varying degrees of specularity, geometry opacity, things like that, on a per-material basis. Different materials can also have different textures. Basic .obj necessities. I've done this in old school OpenGL, but modern OpenGL has its own thing going on, and I'd like to conform as closely to the standards as possible so as to keep the program running correctly, and I'm hoping to avoid picking up bad habits this early on.
      Reading around on the OpenGL Wiki, one tip in particular really stands out to me on this page:
      For something like a renderer for .obj files, this sort of thing seems almost ideal, but according to the wiki, it's a bad idea. Interesting to note!
      So, here's what the plan is so far as far as loading goes:
      Set up a type for materials so that materials can be created and destroyed. They will contain things like diffuse color, diffuse texture, geometry opacity, and so on, for each material in the .mtl file. Since .obj files are conveniently split up by material, I can load different groups of vertices/normals/UVs and triangles into different blocks of data for different models. When it comes to the rendering, I get a bit lost. I can either:
      Between drawing triangle groups, call glUseProgram to use a different shader for that particular geometry (so a unique shader just for the material that is shared by this triangle group). or
      Between drawing triangle groups, call glUniform a few times to adjust different parameters within the "master shader", such as specularity, diffuse color, and geometry opacity. In both cases, I still have to call glBindTexture between drawing triangle groups in order to bind the diffuse texture used by the material, so there doesn't seem to be a way around having the CPU do *something* during the rendering process instead of letting the GPU do everything all at once.
      The second option here seems less cluttered, however. There are less shaders to keep up with while one "master shader" handles it all. I don't have to duplicate any code or compile multiple shaders. Arguably, I could always have the shader program for each material be embedded in the material itself, and be auto-generated upon loading the material from the .mtl file. But this still leads to constantly calling glUseProgram, much more than is probably necessary in order to properly render the .obj. There seem to be a number of differing opinions on if it's okay to use hundreds of shaders or if it's best to just use tens of shaders.
      So, ultimately, what is the "right" way to do this? Does using a "master shader" (or a few variants of one) bog down the system compared to using hundreds of shader programs each dedicated to their own corresponding materials? Keeping in mind that the "master shaders" would have to track these additional uniforms and potentially have numerous branches of ifs, it may be possible that the ifs will lead to additional and unnecessary processing. But would that more expensive than constantly calling glUseProgram to switch shaders, or storing the shaders to begin with?
      With all these angles to consider, it's difficult to come to a conclusion. Both possible methods work, and both seem rather convenient for their own reasons, but which is the most performant? Please help this beginner/dummy understand. Thank you!

      I want to make professional java 3d game with server program and database,packet handling for multiplayer and client-server communicating,maps rendering,models,and stuffs Which aspect of java can I learn and where can I learn java Lwjgl OpenGL rendering Like minecraft and world of tanks

      A friend of mine and I are making a 2D game engine as a learning experience and to hopefully build upon the experience in the long run.

      -What I'm using:
          C++;. Since im learning this language while in college and its one of the popular language to make games with why not.     Visual Studios; Im using a windows so yea.     SDL or GLFW; was thinking about SDL since i do some research on it where it is catching my interest but i hear SDL is a huge package compared to GLFW, so i may do GLFW to start with as learning since i may get overwhelmed with SDL.  
      -Questions
      Knowing what we want in the engine what should our main focus be in terms of learning. File managements, with headers, functions ect. How can i properly manage files with out confusing myself and my friend when sharing code. Alternative to Visual studios: My friend has a mac and cant properly use Vis studios, is there another alternative to it?

      Both functions are available since 3.0, and I'm currently using `glMapBuffer()`, which works fine.
      But, I was wondering if anyone has experienced advantage in using `glMapBufferRange()`, which allows to specify the range of the mapped buffer. Could this be only a safety measure or does it improve performance?
      Note: I'm not asking about glBufferSubData()/glBufferData. Those two are irrelevant in this case.

      Before using void glBindImageTexture(    GLuint unit, GLuint texture, GLint level, GLboolean layered, GLint layer, GLenum access, GLenum format), does need to make sure that texture is completeness.
