Simple Vertex Program... not so simple :-(

I''ve setup a super-simple vertex program that just transforms position and passes through light color. Everything gets really dark grey though (like ambient 0.2 light), why could that be?
# c[8] - c[11]	: Modelview*Projection matrix

DP4 o[HPOS].x, c[8], v[OPOS];
DP4 o[HPOS].y, c[9], v[OPOS];
DP4 o[HPOS].z, c[10], v[OPOS];
DP4 o[HPOS].w, c[11], v[OPOS];

MOV	o[COL0].xyz, v[COL0];

Input color is specified as glColor3f(1,1,1) and gl lighting is disabled. Any suggestions appreciated. -meZ

i dont know the solution to your problem.
but i think you should remove .xyz in the line
MOV o[COL0].xyz, v[COL0];
because its not neccessary.
also you should deactivate all textures beforce using the vertex program, and disable blending.

but i have a question:
how do you get your matrix into the parameter registers?
are you using glTrackMatrix?

i also have a problem with vertex programs, could you take a look at

Yeah, I just put in the .xyz to see if it would make any difference.

I using trackmatrix like this:
#define VP_C08 8

// Map modelview*projection matrix to const c8->c11


And that part works like a charm.

Just found the problem... :-|

Explicitly disabling both texture units did the trick. I could swear they''re supposed to be off by default!?
