There doesn't seem to be a tutorial on creating an OpenGL window in linux. Does anyone know how? If it's too long to post here, please email me at: hobbiticus@gamelegends.net Thanks. Legends Development Team

Your on the Legends dev team? Thats cool, good luck with that
As always, NeHe has linux ports of several of the tutorials, or you could use SDL and have total cross-platform. Torque already has that built in btw, hehe.

Yeah, I know what the torque can do, I have it Hopefully we can get it ported.

Anyway, does it make a difference which one I use? I don't really have time to look at it now, and I don't have internet access at school for this computer :So, someone please tell me within the next like...half hour, and please look at Legends. Spread the word, thx.

I''m a t2 scripter, very unknown hehe. Maybe I''m just afraid of all the true vets on the TW forums lol. Man, those forums are a bunch of fun to read.

btw Hobb, the URL in your sig is wrong... it has the gamedev url attached to the front.

I don''t think theres any difference. Some may say that SDL (or any wrapper) will be slower then your own code which may be true, just overhead I guess.
I use SDL just for window creation and stuff, because that is different on every platform more then what c/c++ can do.

Oh and I played T1, and still like T2 (yes, shocking?

Thanks, I fixed the sig link now, so please, click on it

BTW, T1 > T2, imo

But, I tried the Linux/GLX version, and it didn''t compile. It said something about not finding a function inside of libvga.so.1. Do I need to update this or something?

Maybe. It compiles fine for me. Do you have all of the libraries that it tries to link? If not, then try getting them. If so, then try upgrading.

I''m pretty sure I have all of them, but I don''t know for sure. I think it''s something with vgalib.so.1 itself. I guess I''ll be bringing in my Linux CD tomarrow :\

If its not finding the functions inside that dll, then it must mean its old, lol
