Au3GlPlugin T2 - OpenGl Plugin Evolution

73 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Hi!

After 18 days without new versions of Au3GlPlugin, is time for news. The old Au3GlPlugin was remodeled and now it is Au3GlPlugin T2.

Why T2?

Because the plugin needed a new model. The old model, searching each object by a string name, was slow, heavy and nothing friendly. So, some concepts was changed:

First, any object is referenced now by an ID.

Second, groups don't exists how it was. Now an object can group shapes and another objects itself.

Third, each added shape can be worked independent of object (and texturized separately too).

And now it have help file :)

Downloads:

Plugin: Au3GlPlugin_T2_2008_03_23.zip

Old versions: +441 downloads

Examples: Au3GlPlugin_T2_2008_03_23_examples.zip

Old versions: +368 downloads

SRC: Au3GlPlugin_T2_2008_03_23_SRC.zip

Old versions: +171 downloads

Another download location here.

This project is open for any contribution, modifications of any kind. Is public! But please, if you expand it in any way, share with us!

PS: Requires a graphics card that supports OpenGL (Intergrated Chipsets not recommended).

It don't work properly on Windows Vista - will be fixed.

The needed Glut32 and Glaux can be found here.

And please! Comments are welcome!

Sounds interesting!

But after unzipping the plugin, I tried to run FirstScene.au3: Got an error that DefineGlWindow() is an unknown function.

Running through the console yielded the same results, so I compiled it and ran the EXE. New error says it can't find GLAUX.DLL

Hey there Percy :P

Big fan of your plugin, been following it for a while, although I haven't been a registred member of this community. :)

I have a question for you; Is it somehow possible to change a texture on an object on runtime, or somehow update the texture on runtime, if the texture file changes, but with the path the same?

Thank in advance :)

Hi!

Thank you!

In runtime you just need call TextureBind, but at start you must load all textures you need. You can change shape texture at any time.

Thanks for the fast response.

However, this does unfortunately not solve my problem.

Let's pretend I've added a texture located at C:\texture.bmp

I've done the nescesary initialization, in order to bind the texture to my shape.

If I then, during runtime that is, overwrite C:\texture.bmp with a file of the same name, but with a diffrent image, and then once again try to bind the same texture, using TextureBind, I don't see any change on my shape?

Is there anyways I can somehow reload the texture, without having to chance Texture buffer, and the ID of the texture?

For now, isn't possible "reload" a texture, but I'll study the case. It can be very util :)

Thank you

Very good! :)

And thanks for the CHM file too - nice touch! Only I can't seem to get it to work in the way that the AutoIt CHM links directly to the help topic that corresponds with a highlighted word/function.

I'm not too clued up with CHM file compilation, but maybe you can find out the missing piece from JdeB or Jon (whoever compiles the AutoIt CHM)?

Thanks again for the plugin and for really Opening up GL for us!
