Hey guys & girls,


I am sorry for my previous thread, actually it was wrong one. 


In rendering loop I got something like this:

ModelFace *pFace = faces[faceNumber];
glUseProgram( modelProg->id );
glBindVertexArray( vao );
glBindBuffer(GL_ARRAY_BUFFER, bspvbo);
glBufferData(GL_ARRAY_BUFFER, sizeof(ModelVertex) * pFace->vertexCount, &(vertices[pFace->firstVertexIndex].position), GL_STATIC_DRAW);
glVertexAttribPointer(0, 3, GL_FLOAT, GL_FALSE, sizeof(ModelVertex), 0);
glBindBuffer(GL_ARRAY_BUFFER, 0);
glDrawElements(GL_TRIANGLES, pFace->numMeshIndices, GL_UNSIGNED_INT, &(meshIndices[pFace->firstMeshIndex]) );
glBindVertexArray( 0 );

On OpenGL ES 3.0 it works great, but nothing on desktop OpenGL 3.0 ( core ).

I tried another tests with glDrawArrays and it WORKS. But not with glDrawElements. How to update its data?


EDIT: Solved! Sorry 

Added this

  glBindBuffer(GL_ELEMENT_ARRAY_BUFFER, ibuffer);
    glBufferData(GL_ELEMENT_ARRAY_BUFFER, pFace->numMeshIndices * sizeof(uint), &meshIndices[pFace->firstMeshIndex], GL_STATIC_DRAW);


and changed last parameter of glDrawElements to NULL.
