    Multiple definition error

    Your definition of Object::ObjectID should be within a source file. Currently if you include your header file in multiple .cpp files the compiler will generate multiple instances of the ObjectID as you have it currently defined "int Object::ObjectID = 0" On a side note I'm not entirely certain how the compiler handles two declarations of a static with the same name in a base class and the derived class as well.
  2. Hi, I was wondering if anyone could answer a few questions I have about properly setting up an OpenGL 4.1 context on Windows. I scrapped together two quick code samples on my computer one using GLFW/GLEW and another creating my own window and using GLEW. I ran both code samples through gDEBugger and I'm a little confused by the results. Based on the way I set up my window in both of the samples below I expected to only see a "Front Buffer" and "Back Buffer" when I viewed the context in gDEBugger. Instead I am seeing a depth, back, front, and four auxiliary buffers. Do I have any control over the creation of those buffers? The other question I have is if I'm properly setting up my OpenGL context for Windows. The one issue I seem to be having is that if I specify WGL_CONTEXT_DEBUG_BIT_ARB in the sample where I create my own window it doesn't properly create a context.   Posted this over at the OpenGL forums as well.

    Windows OpenGL Initialization Questions

    It's part of my job to investigate.   Didn't keep a log of everything I changed but the debug context is now creating properly in my Win32 example. Haven't been able to remove the auxiliary buffers but at least on the Win32 example I was able to eliminate the depth/stencil so I have the option to manually create it later for use in an FBO. Not sure what I have set up wrong with GLFW that it still creates the depth/stencil.

    Windows OpenGL Initialization Questions

    I guess my next question would be is what is the purpose of the auxiliary buffers?   For example if I were to set up a GBuffer for a deferred pipeline should I take advantage of the fact the auxiliary buffers exist and use those as my GBuffer surfaces instead of manually creating my own?   My guess is that I'm not guaranteed that they are going to exist. So I would want to allocate my own framebuffer/texture sets anyway. But then at that point it seems like I'm just throwing away usable GPU memory.

    Have Solution/Project for both VS2010/2012

    If you require people to use different toolsets for working on your code base I would suggest using a utility like CMAKE or Premake to generate the solution/projects. This way you distribute the CMAKE or Premake files and people can have those build the VS/make/XCode projects that are required for what you are working on.   I modified the premake source a little while back in order to make it work with VS2012. I can probably post it online later today if you consider that as an option.
  6. I have posted this on the Autodesk forums and Google group. Although there is zero activity, so not quite sure where else to go except here. I'm attempting to write a scene exporter using the 3DS Max .NET SDK. I currently have what I thought was the bare minimum setup in order to create an exporter. After building the DLL I copy it into the bin/assemblies directory and launch MAX 2013 and attempt an export. I receive the message "An error has occurred and the application will now close. No scene changes have occurred since your last save." I copy and pasted the Descriptor and Loader from the example in http://area.autodesk...rp-source-code. Do I have something set up wrong in my code that could cause this issue? My project references Autodesk.Max and the "Copy Local" is set to false. using System; using System.Collections.Generic; using System.Linq; using System.Text; using Autodesk.Max; namespace TestExporter { public class TestExporter : Autodesk.Max.Plugins.SceneExport { public override string AuthorName { get { return "Test"; } } public override string CopyrightMessage { get { return "Test"; } } public override int DoExport(string name, Autodesk.Max.IExpInterface ei, Autodesk.Max.IInterface i, bool suppressPrompts, uint options) { return 1; } public override string Ext(int n) { return "mesh"; } public override int ExtCount { get { return 1; } } public override string LongDesc { get { return "Test Export Utility"; } } public override string OtherMessage1() { return ""; } public override string OtherMessage2() { return ""; } public override string ShortDesc { get { return "Test"; } } public override void ShowAbout(IntPtr hWnd) { return; } public override uint Version { get { return 1; } } } public class Descriptor : Autodesk.Max.Plugins.ClassDesc2 { public override string Category { get { return "Test"; } } public override IClass_ID ClassID { get { return Loader.Global.Class_ID.Create(0x3990388b, 0x696868d0); } } public override string ClassName { get { return "Test Export Utility"; } } public override object Create(bool loading) { return new TestExporter(); } public override bool IsPublic { get { return true; } } public override SClass_ID SuperClassID { get { return SClass_ID.SceneExport; } } } public static class Loader { public static IGlobal Global; public static IInterface13 Core; public static void AssemblyMain() { Global = Autodesk.Max.GlobalInterface.Instance; Core = Global.COREInterface13; Core.AddClass(new Descriptor()); } } }
  7. Short answer is that a basic application is single threaded, so yes it will be safe. You don't get into threading unless you create additional threads. Something like this hello world is considered single threaded. int main( int argc, char* argv[] ) { printf("Hello, world!\n"); return 0; }

    Dumbest coding mistakes ever

    while( someCondition ); { }
  9. Have you considered using something like Unity, UDK or another engine? There are many freely available options to do what you are requesting.

    WPF & DirectX 11 via D3DImage

    Shoot, sorry, I completely misread your original post. I did mine using SlimDX. I'll grab the code you're working with and give it a shot tonight if I can remember.

    WPF & DirectX 11 via D3DImage

    Can you post some of your code? I don't really have any solutions to your problem. I was able to take the sample code and mostly just change "DirectX10" to "DirectX11" and using the device context. If no one gives you a solution by the time I get home from work tonight I'll post what I have.

    SDL_Surface in a struct

    Need a little more information. What do you mean it stops responding? Do you know where it stops responding if it actualy does? From what I can see it looks like it is set to render the left paddle on screen for approximately 5 seconds and then quit.

    SDL_Surface in a struct

    struct object { float x_coordinate, y_coordinate; float x_speed, y_speed; SDL_Surface *image; }; You can't set *image to NULL like that. Should solve your issue, I believe. [/quote] Yeah, that worked like a charm.Thanks Just wondering, why is that so? Whenever i declare a surface in any function i set it to NULL, why is that not possible here? [/quote] Someone else may need to chip in here, I'm not sure of the exact reasoning behind not allowing default values in stuct/class definitions. Default values should be set through a constructor. I think the only exception for that are const members.

  16. So you have a custom struct matching the memory layout of the corresponding constant buffer? [/quote] What it sounds like to me is they allocate memory and fill in the data using memcpy and offsets into the allocated memory based on the constant buffer layout they determined in the build pipeline. Would avoid creating custom structs... I believe.
  17. Hi, I was wondering if anyone could help me out with an issue I am having. I know I can bind the depth stencil as a shader resource. Although I'm tripping up on the step where I actually create the shader resource view. Currently I get E_INVAILDARG although I have no idea how to tell what is actually invalid. Is there a way to determine what is invalid other than looking at the HRESULT? My selection of format types came from a post MJP made in another thread where a similar question was raised: link I receive on the last line of code below. HRESULT hr = S_OK; D3D11_TEXTURE2D_DESC texDesc = { mWidth, //width mHeight, //height 1, //mip levels 1, //array size DXGI_FORMAT_R24G8_TYPELESS, //format, {1, 0}, //sample desc(count, quality) D3D11_USAGE_DEFAULT, //usage D3D11_BIND_DEPTH_STENCIL | D3D11_BIND_SHADER_RESOURCE, //bind flags 0, //cpu access flags 0 //misc flags }; hr = pDevice->CreateTexture2D(&texDesc, 0, &mpDepthStencilTexture); if(FAILED(hr)) { return hr; } D3D11_DEPTH_STENCIL_VIEW_DESC viewDesc = { }; viewDesc.ViewDimension = D3D11_DSV_DIMENSION_TEXTURE2D; viewDesc.Format = DXGI_FORMAT_D24_UNORM_S8_UINT; viewDesc.Texture2D.MipSlice = 0; hr = pDevice->CreateDepthStencilView(mpDepthStencilTexture, &viewDesc, &mpDepthStencilView); D3D11_SHADER_RESOURCE_VIEW_DESC viewDesc = { }; viewDesc.Format = DXGI_FORMAT_R24_UNORM_X8_TYPELESS; viewDesc.ViewDimension = D3D11_SRV_DIMENSION_TEXTURE2D; viewDesc.Texture2D.MipLevels = 0; hr = pDevice->CreateShaderResourceView(mpDepthStencilTexture, &viewDesc, &mpDepthStencilSRV); Thank you for your help.

    DirectX 11 Depth Stencil

    Sweet, thanks that fixed it. I think I was looking at some of my other code where I had a descriptor setting MipSlice to 0 and just copied that for MipLevels. Just a heads up I was running with D3D11_CREATE_DEVICE_DEBUG. Wasn't giving me any more information than E_INVALIDARG. Maybe I'm linking against the wrong lib?

    DirectX 11 Depth Stencil

    I originally didn't have the bind shader resource flag. I thought that was the issue because I was attempting to make a shader resource. Didn't fix the issue :-(

    directx 11 in, how to?

    DirectX 11 is C++. You might want to take a look at SlimDX which is a .NET wrapper for DirectX.
  21. I was wondering if anyone could help me out with a little problem I am having. I started a new empty Windows C++ project in Visual Studio 2010. I added, what I've known to be, the basic code for getting a window up and running with a simple message loop. Already I am having an unusual issue with my window. When I launch the program my window appears but I always get the busy cursor icon. I have no control over minimizing/maximizing/moving/etc. the window. Has anyone ever seen this happen? I'm on Windows 7 if it makes any difference. From what I can tell this looks no different than any other Windows program I have written... One thing I tried was to use the basic Windows C++ project template instead of empty. That seemed to work well. The only thing they seemed to do different is use TranslateAccelerator, which I have never used before, instead of PeekMessage. #include <Windows.h> //Forward declarations LRESULT CALLBACK WindowProc(HWND hWnd, UINT uMsg, WPARAM wParam, LPARAM lParam); HWND CreateAndRegisterWindow(const char* name); int WINAPI wWinMain(HINSTANCE hInstance, HINSTANCE hPrevInstance, PWSTR pCmdLine, int nCmdShow) { HWND hWnd = CreateAndRegisterWindow("Sandbox"); if(hWnd == NULL) { MessageBox(NULL, "Error!", "Unable to create and register the Sandbox window", MB_ICONERROR); return -1; } MSG msg = { }; while(msg.message != WM_QUIT) { //Process current window messages if(PeekMessage(&msg, NULL, 0, 0, PM_REMOVE)) { TranslateMessage(&msg); DispatchMessage(&msg); } else { } } return static_cast<int>(msg.wParam); } LRESULT CALLBACK WindowProc(HWND hWnd, UINT uMsg, WPARAM wParam, LPARAM lParam) { switch(uMsg) { case WM_DESTROY: { PostQuitMessage(0); } return 0; case WM_PAINT: { PAINTSTRUCT ps; HDC hdc = BeginPaint(hWnd, &ps); FillRect(hdc, &ps.rcPaint, reinterpret_cast<HBRUSH>(COLOR_WINDOW + 1)); EndPaint(hWnd, &ps); } return 0; } return DefWindowProc(hWnd, uMsg, wParam, lParam); } HWND CreateAndRegisterWindow(const char* name) { //Register the window class. WNDCLASS wc = { }; wc.lpfnWndProc = WindowProc; wc.lpszClassName = name; RegisterClass(&wc); //Create the window HWND hWnd = CreateWindowEx( 0, name, name, WS_OVERLAPPEDWINDOW, CW_USEDEFAULT, CW_USEDEFAULT, CW_USEDEFAULT, CW_USEDEFAULT, NULL, NULL, NULL, NULL); if(hWnd == NULL) { return NULL; } ShowWindow(hWnd, SW_SHOWDEFAULT); return hWnd; }

    Win32 Window Issue (C++)

    OK, so I figured I would give you guys an update. Since I was writing this post away from my dev machine I was 100% certain I had tried it as the code I posted. Apparently I was wrong, sorry about that. I should verify what I am doing before I claim I am doing it in the future. I had left in code to initialize raw input. Apparently setting up a raw input device with RIDEV_NOLEGACY caused the issue I was having. As soon as I removed that flag when creating my raw input devices everything cleared up.

    Win32 Window Issue (C++)

    I am running the EXE through my debugger, it doesn't indicate the execution is halting in any specific place. I threw in some rendering code at one point that rendered my FPS and MSPF and those all updated and rendered properly. The current code I am compiling is what I posted. I guess when I get home tonight I'll trash the project and try starting from scratch again. Thanks for your help.

    Win32 Window Issue (C++)

    What I mean is that I get the busy cursor (I'm on Windows 7 so the spinning doughnut). When I attempt to grab the title bar I can not move the window. When I try to press minimize or maximize nothing happens, and when I try to press the close icon nothing happens. Same thing when I attempt to grab the edge of the window in order to resize. Now I understand I may have turned off some of those features with my window setup, but I'm pretty sure I should at minimum be able to close the window and move it around by the title bar. Edit: The code I have posted + the update to my WNDCLASS in the other post is currently what I am building and running.
