I have looked all over for a tutorial on how to use this extension but can't find one anywhere. If someone could give me a link to one or write one, it would be much appreciated.

no one knows about this? should I be posting this in the advanced forum?

A Google search returned ~1500 results for me, including links to the specs.

I use google too, and that was the first place I looked, however I couldn't find any actual examples of code using this. Did you look through the results of google's search? I did and they are almost all about which hardware supports the extension, or the "spec". I can't learn how to use it from the "spec", there just isnt enough info.

Back to my original question, If anyone knows where to find any *actual code* on using GL_EXT_shared_texture_palette, please reply here.

Thanks, Melekor

You are right, most of those links are simply listings of supported extensions. I also did some quick poking around, and couldn't find any sample code. However, it appears that the GL_EXT_shared_texture_palette extension depends on the GL_EXT_paletted_texture extension, which has considerably more documentation. Perhaps it will help, or someone in the advanced forum may be able to help more.

Hope that helps.

Ok, after much trying, I've got GL_EXT_PALETTED_TEXTURE working (btw, it totally rocks, so useful http://www.opengl.org/discussion_boards/ubb/smile.gif, but I still want to know about the shared texture palette, so if anyone knows please post.
