Ticket #8666 (new defect)
OpenGL calls fail starting with VBox 4.x
|Reported by:||SoftCoder||Owned by:|
I am an opensource developer working on an RTS game called Megaglest (see megaglest.org). In previous versions of Virtual Box i was able to successfully test under virtual box using client extensions and 3d support. My host is Linux and guests are Windows XP and also many flavours of Linux including Ubuntu 8 - current. Starting in Virtualbox 4.x the game gets weird OpenGL errors returned, but the same binaries run fine on the native operating systems and ran fine in 3.x.
I refer to v3.4.0 and the current developer svn version. Source code is available at sourceforge.net here: http://sourceforge.net/projects/megaglest/develop, our dev wiki is here: http://glest.wikia.com/wiki/MG/Development
*NOTE: When disabling 3D guest additions the game does not work as it requires open GL 1.3 or higher reported by the OS.
