  1. Well, I don't use cube maps for implementing skyboxes, but I found something interesting about them in OpenGL.org. Maybe that is the solution for your problem. [url="http://www.opengl.org/wiki/Common_Mistakes#Creating_a_Cubemap_Texture"]http://www.opengl.org/wiki/Common_Mistakes#Creating_a_Cubemap_Texture[/url] If you want I can post my code(or share a download link to it) so you can use it for your skyboxes.
  2. I managed to fix the problem. The code, which made things not work was in the display function: [CODE] void Display() { glClearColor(0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 1.0); glClear(GL_COLOR_BUFFER_BIT | GL_DEPTH_BUFFER_BIT); glMatrixMode(GL_MODELVIEW); glLoadIdentity(); glPushMatrix(); ApplyCamera(); DrawGrid(10000, 200); DrawObjects(); glPopMatrix(); DrawText(); glutSwapBuffers(); } [/CODE] Simply, the push and pop funcs are making sth wrong in my code(I am not so experienced and I can't tell exactly what). By removing them I managed to get good results for the depth buffers. [CODE] void Display() { glClearColor(0.0, 0.0, 0.0, 1.0); glClear(GL_COLOR_BUFFER_BIT | GL_DEPTH_BUFFER_BIT); glMatrixMode(GL_MODELVIEW); glLoadIdentity(); DrawText(); ApplyCamera(); DrawGrid(10000, 200); DrawObjects(); glutSwapBuffers(); } [/CODE] Thats it! If anyone can explain me why the pushing and popping matrices screws the whole algorithm please post.
  3. Hello everyone! Recently I have been trying to implement picking via mouse ray. I made a little project with three spheres in it and I simply check for ray-sphere intersection. If there is such, I have a sphere to pick. After I made everything to work fine with that little project I tried to implement this in a bigger one. The bigger project is a solar systems creator. However, when I try to select a sun(that is the only thing I need to be selected) the selection won't work. Below I am posting the code for the solution. First, the intersection test: [CODE] bool CelestialBody::IsClickedOn(Ray mouseRay) { float a = DotProduct(mouseRay.GetDirection(), mouseRay.GetDirection()); float b = 2 * DotProduct(mouseRay.GetOrigin(), mouseRay.GetDirection()); float c = DotProduct(mouseRay.GetOrigin(), mouseRay.GetOrigin()) - this->radius * this->radius; float discriminant = b * b - 4 * a * c; std::cout<<discriminant<<std::endl; if(discriminant < 0) { return false; } return true; }[/CODE] Second, the mouse click code: [CODE] if(userMouse.IsLeftButtonDown()) { int cursorX = int(userMouse.GetCurrentPosition().GetX()); int cursorY = int(userMouse.GetCurrentPosition().GetY()); Vector3d nearPoint = userCamera.GetPosition(); Vector3d farPoint = MouseClass::ConvertMouseToOGLCoordinate(cursorX, cursorY, 1.0f); Vector3d direction = farPoint - nearPoint; direction.Normalize(); std::vector<std::string> parentNames = sceneLayout->GetParentNames(); int size = parentNames.size(); for(int i = 0; i < size; i++) { Vector3d parentBodyPos = sceneLayout->GetCelestialBodyPosition(parentNames[i]); Vector3d origin = nearPoint - parentBodyPos; CelestialBody *currentBody = sceneLayout->GetCelestialBody(parentNames[i]); mouseRay = Ray(origin, direction); bool isCollided = currentBody->IsClickedOn(mouseRay); if(isCollided) { currentBody->SetColor(Color(0, 0, 255)); } else { currentBody->SetColor(Color(255, 250, 255)); } } //userMouse.ReleaseLeftButton(); } [/CODE] And at last, the ConvertMouseToOGLCoordinate() function code: [CODE] Vector3d MouseClass::ConvertMouseToOGLCoordinate(int mouseX, int mouseY, int mouseZ) { GLint viewport[4]; GLdouble modelMatrix[16]; GLdouble projectionMatrix[16]; glGetIntegerv(GL_VIEWPORT, viewport); glGetDoublev(GL_MODELVIEW_MATRIX, modelMatrix); glGetDoublev(GL_PROJECTION_MATRIX, projectionMatrix);float winY = float(viewport[3] - mouseY); double x, y, z; gluUnProject((double)mouseX, winY, mouseZ, modelMatrix, projectionMatrix, viewport, &x, &y, &z); return Vector3d(x, y, z); } [/CODE] These are the snippets which correspond to the little project's code. The thing I suspect to crash the algorithm is the position from which I view the scene. My camera coords are (0.0; 9000.0; 0.0) and when I switch from side view (0.0, 0.0, 9000.0) I am able to pick one of the planets. On the little project, however, I am able to pick from whatever position my camera is. I know I haven't explained things good enough but that is all I can do... If you want the whole code of both projects, I will supply you with it [img]http://public.gamedev.net//public/style_emoticons/default/smile.png[/img].
