The subject really tells it all. Can OpenGL tell you how much video memory the card has? I need to know this desperately. I''ve been searching for weeks. Thanks in advance, SupaSpyck (The one and only)

No. But:
a) You shouldn''t need to get it. If you do, it''s probably preferable to allow the user to pick a ''detail'' level.
b) Even if you could get the amount of video memory, it''s a very sketchy figure.
c) The Win32 API has somewhat obscure ways of finding the total amount of video memory. I can''t remember how off hand.
