[3D acceleration] PlayStation-emulator graphics plugin will not initialize
|Reported by:||twipley||Owned by:|
Description (last modified by aeichner) (diff)
Using a plugins-based PlayStation emulator such as PCSX and ePSXe, "Pete's OpenGL2 PSX GPU" ( http://www.pbernert.com/html/gpu.htm#OGL2) will not initialize.
An ISO or a disc is needed in order for this to be testes. Three error messages are returned upon graphics-plugin initialization:
- missing pbuffer extension;
- missing render-texture extension;
- no pixel format available;
EDIT: switching the rendering mode from "render to pbuffer" to "use framebuffer object" seems to fix the issue.
Just a quick question: is it thinkable that, someday in the future, the VirtualBox (Linux) drivers will handle the above-needed OpenGL extensions? Or, will they theoretically never will be handled? Just out of curiosity.
At least, the problem can be easily corrected following the rendering-mode switch outlined above.
