On what card?

If you read NVidia's driver README.txt, you'll find that on NVidia, overlay planes only work on Quadros (excluding NVS), and with a lot of limitations/assumptions on use with other features.

So in general, your average Joe Blow gamer isn't gonna have these, on an NVidia card.

Your average CAD guy? Maybe.

Go here: www.nvidia.com (http://www.nvidia.com) and select Products->Quadro. Quadro is NVidia's professional line of graphics cards. Like FireGL for AMD/ATI IIRC.

Don't know for sure. I haven't used overlay planes since waaay back on SGIs. An ATI and/or Intel user will have to chime in here if they do and on what boards. On the AMD site, "opengl overlay planes" is mentioned:

* http://www.lmgtfy.com/?q="opengl overlay planes" site:amd.com (http://www.lmgtfy.com/?q=%22opengl+overlay+planes%22+site%3Aamd.com)


..or s only the quardo fx series gonna support??

Again, I have no first hand information, but the NVidia driver README says overlay planes supported by all Quadros except Quadro NVS.

Please, do not post the same question multiple times, just continue here about how to download complete OpenGL package (http://www.opengl.org/discussion_boards/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=276733).
