I've been wondering about this... is there a way to enable/disable Hardware T&L using OpenGL???

Thanks,

Nope, it's always enabled.

Some drivers allow you to disable it though.

Hmmm... interesting... is it done through a Win API call or using an OpenGL extension to check first if the driver allows it to be enabled/disabled??

Thanks!,

Not really, it's different in every driver, and the only driver that I'm aware of is ATI's, and that's done through a registry entry.

The nVidia drivers allow "forceSW" through the nVEmulate30 application.

forceSW in NVEmulate makes everything run in software.

Why do you want to enable/disable hardware TnL?
