View Full Version : SuperBible CD missing source code!

I'm very annoyed to find that the accompanying CD to Richard Wright's "OpenGL SUPER BIBLE" is missing source code that's referenced in the book. Example: the Chapter7 sample on Raster Graphics is missing the LoadRGBA() and ReadDIBitmap() functions. I haven't even looked at the CD's other sample projects. When a book costs $50 I expect better. Very shoddy....

There is no reference to a publisher's web site in the book. Do you have a URL for the missing source or are you just suggesting that I try to find them on the web?

Many thanks for the URL. I especially enjoyed "Will code for food" pic of Richard Wright's http://www.opengl.org/discussion_boards/ubb/smile.gif

OK, let's make this very simple: Is the "OpenGL SuperBible 2nd Ed" missing SOURCE CODE (_not_ bmp files!) available for download at the URL below? YES or NO ?? If yes, please post exact file name to download and _exact_ URL where MISSING SOURCE code file is located. I could not find it searching the site. Thanks.
P.S. the link http://www.easysw.com/~mike is invalid: "Access denied" when you try to go there.

That forbidden link should be http://www.easysw.com/~mike/index.html

But the source code you are looking for is not there either. In fact the last date it was updated is marked as 12-3-1997 http://www.opengl.org/discussion_boards/ubb/tongue.gif

hey... arent those functions in the bitmap.c and bitmap.h files? i have that book too, and i thought it was pretty ordinary... i want to use my voodoo 3 for acceleration but there is nothing about that in the book ( i.e using a hardware accelerator) even tho it says so on the back!

anyhow.. chow for now

acceleration is done automatically...

get the latest voodoo 3 drivers and it should accelerate it fine...
