Description

Since the inclusion of OpenGL in VBox 2.1.0 it would be nice to make it feature-complete.

Namely OpenGL 2 support.

There is very nice new demo needing it - "Unigine Tropics".

Unigine Tropics fails because VBox 2.1 lacks GL_EXT_draw_range_elements

This problem still exists in VBox 3.0. Unigine Tropics still fails in OpenGL mode because VBox 3.0 lacks GL_EXT_draw_range_elements

BTW: Since OpenGL 2.0 support in VBox now is officially announced, this becomes a bug, not a feature-request unlike before.

  • Summary changed from [feature-request] Please support OpenGL 2 and Unigine to [feature-request] Please support OpenGL 2 and Unigine -> Fixed in SVN.

The thing is that "GL_EXT_draw_range_elements" is promoted to core feature in opengl 1.2 ... thus it's not required to export this as an extension string. Because there's glDrawRangeElements function if GL_VERSION >= 1.2. Anyway, seems like many apps check for this extension for some odd reason, thus fixed in svn.

Please upgrade to VBox 3.1.0, update the guest additions to 3.1.0 as well!

Unigine Tropics still fails. Please remove the misleading "-> Fixed in SVN" tag.

It is freeware, so feel free to download it.

It fails by saying "GL_EXT_texture_sRGB is not supported"

  • Version changed from VirtualBox 2.1.0 to VirtualBox 3.1.0
  • Summary changed from [feature-request] Please support OpenGL 2 and Unigine -> Fixed in SVN. to [feature-request] Please support OpenGL 2 and Unigine

I assume there was no change with the 3.2 releases, right?

Tried 3.2.6. Yes, it still fails, with the same error as 3.1.0 does. It fails by saying "GL_EXT_texture_sRGB is not supported"

'Unigine Tropics' is freeware demo, so you can look at it.

OpenGL 2.0 and 2.1 is supported for quite a while now. There was a silly typo prevening GL_EXT_texture_sRGB support, which is fixed now.
