View Full Version : prog doesn't work on other machine

05-30-2000, 01:07 AM

i've written a OGL prog which loads textures and displays a 3d environment. This works well on my computer (Celeron 500, Elsa Erazor 3), but on other machines (P3 500, GLFire or P2 266, Matrox Millenium) the window is black - there is nothing displayed.
Any suggestions ?

Debugging the hard way.

I would do something like a small test program.. Displaying a simple triangle with no textures etc.. and then if that works on both cards/computers, add a feature from the faulty program to the test program. If that works, add another thing and so on.. Until you find out what causing it. (Or it magically works anyway.. http://www.opengl.org/discussion_boards/ubb/smile.gif )

If you never get the test program to work in the first place then you have to simplify it even more...

I assume that other OpenGL apps runs fine on the GLFire and millenium machines. (millenium supports OpenGL??)

The original millenium doesn't support texturing http://www.opengl.org/discussion_boards/ubb/frown.gif
