yo list,

Ive recently added pbuffer support to my engine and am having an issue.

I use an arb vertex program environment for the entire engine, never going into fixed function vertex processing.

On ATI 9500Pro (Catalyst3.9) / WinXP everything works as expected.
I think everything is fine on GGGfx5200Ultra (Forceware5216) as well.

The problem is with my Geforce4 G0 420 / Forceware 5216 (with hacked INF files to get it on my vaio laptop). Im 95% sure its not the hacked INF's since everything else works fine.

The problem is this: (im guessing some kind of sync issue)

When I RTT(RenderToTexture) with a clear and a couple of fixed func immediate primitives and then bind it as a texture inside the main buffer and draw stuff with that texture, everything works as expected. If I instead use a vertex program and draw arrays with state changes into the RTT, upon return to the main rendering context, the pbuffer seems ok, but I get undefined results in the main buffer (like some of the geom targeted at the pbuffer shows up in the main buffer, matrices are messed up in the main buffer, etc..).

Also, why is clearing in pbuffers slow on my geforce 4 go compared to drawing a full screen quad?

here is some of my rendering code if it helps.

FYI a GfxTargetW32GL class encapsulates an on screen buffer and a pbuffer, as they have similar interfaces inside my engine.

the code below is where a window is drawn, and it calls it's subbuffers (pbuffers) draw routines. CGfxBuffer: http://www.opengl.org/discussion_boards/ubb/biggrin.gifraw Leads back to CGfxTargetW32GL::BeginFrame , therefore CGfxTargetW32GL::BeginFrame is a recursive call with a max recusion depth of 1.
