      Hello guys, 
       
      Please tell me! 
      How do I know? Why does wavefront not show for me?
      I already checked I have non errors yet.
      using OpenTK; using System; using System.Collections.Generic; using System.IO; namespace Tutorial_08.net.sourceskyboxer { public class WaveFrontLoader { private static List<Vector3> vertices; private static List<Vector2> textures; private static List<Vector3> normals; private static List<int> indices; private static float[] verticesArray; private static float[] normalsArray; private static float[] texturesArray; private static int[] indicesArray; private static string[] lines; public static RawModel LoadObjModel(string filename, Loader loader) { if (!File.Exists("Contents/" + filename + ".obj")) { throw new FileNotFoundException("Error: wavefront file doesn't exist path: " + filename + ".png"); } vertices = new List<Vector3>(); textures = new List<Vector2>(); normals = new List<Vector3>(); indices = new List<int>(); lines = File.ReadAllLines("Contents/" + filename + ".obj"); try { foreach (string line in lines) { if (line == "" || line.StartsWith("#")) continue; string[] token = line.Split(' '); switch(token[0]) { case ("o"): string o = token[1]; break; case "v": Vector3 vertex = new Vector3(float.Parse(token[1]), float.Parse(token[2]), float.Parse(token[3])); vertices.Add(vertex); break; case "vn": Vector3 normal = new Vector3(float.Parse(token[1]), float.Parse(token[2]), float.Parse(token[3])); normals.Add(normal); break; case "vt": Vector2 texture = new Vector2(float.Parse(token[1]), float.Parse(token[2])); textures.Add(texture); break; case "f": texturesArray = new float[vertices.Count * 2]; normalsArray = new float[vertices.Count * 3]; verticesArray = new float[vertices.Count * 3]; indicesArray = new int[indices.Count]; int vertexPointer = 0; foreach (Vector3 vex in vertices) { verticesArray[vertexPointer++] = vex.X; verticesArray[vertexPointer++] = vex.Y; verticesArray[vertexPointer++] = vex.Z; } for (int i = 0; i < indices.Count; i++) { indicesArray[i] = indices[i]; } break; } } } catch (FileNotFoundException f) { throw new FileNotFoundException($"OBJ file not found: {f.FileName}", f); } catch (ArgumentException ae) { throw new ArgumentException("OBJ file is damaged", ae); } return loader.loadToVAO(verticesArray, texturesArray, indicesArray); } } } And It have tried other method but it can't show for me.  I am mad now. Because any OpenTK developers won't help me.
      Please help me how do I fix.

      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
      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!

      Hi
      I draw in a OpenGL framebuffer. All is fine but it eats FPS (frames per second), hence I wonder if I could execute the framebuffer drawing only every 5-10th loop or so?
      Many thanks

OpenGL Can someone recommend a good "Mid Range" hardware?

This topic is 408 days old which is more than the 365 day threshold we allow for new replies. Please post a new topic.

So I am at the point where I am optimizing and profiling my game and trying to decide what my minimum requirements should be. I am using OpenGL 4.2.

I want my game to be accessible to the casual gamer, or someone that does not have a souped up, or bleeding edge machine - especially since my engine is not using bleeding edge rendering techniques (it looks more like an Xbox 360 game). I have modest polygon counts and not huge numbers of models.

At the same time, I don't want to optimize for a dinosaur machine. 

Ideally I think I would at least like my game to run at 1080p @ 30hz. I expect I'll be ready to release around a year from now (its not a huge project).

I get that a lot of this is dependent on the details of the game, and some of those details are yet to be pinned down since the game is still in development, but I am thinking that 2010 era, non-gaming laptops are just setting the bar a little too low at this point.

At the moment I am eyeing some gaming desktops on Amazon around the $400 range. A couple years old.

Suggestions and advice are appreciated. Note I am looking for both a desktop tower and a gpu recommendations (complete packages are nice too).

Thanks!

For what it's worth, basically any current "mid-range" GPU should have no trouble running a 360-esque game at 1080p 60 fps - even my 5-year-old mid-range GPU (a Radeon 7850) can do that.

 

After all, the previous-gen consoles are over a decade old at this point, and they weren't cutting-edge even when they came out.

IMO a good target might be the integrated Intel 4000 or whatever it is that you end up with when you don't bother with a video card.  Lots of non-enthusiasts, non-gamers, and people who don't know any better are likely to be using this, so that could be a big part of your target audience.  I don't know that they support OpenGL 4 though.  If you're able to back down your OpenGL version to 3-point-something you'll get a lot of support for "casual" hardware back.  I've been intentionally working with OpenGL 3.3 to give me the oldest version of OpenGL that still has the features I want.

Hypothetically, sure. But all of us who work in limited budgets and environments don't have super tightly optimized graphics code and it's easy to screw these things up.
