One big dynamic VBO, or multiple small static ones? Hello you! As i'm slowly moving closer to a good understanding of Vertex Buffer Objects, i stumbled upon a question. Consider this; You have many objects (minimum 10, and maximum 10000) in a 2D space. The objects are all just textured cubes, bu...

Nasty vector trouble! Hello people! In my game, i use one vector to store all my objects. At max, there might be around 100 objects contained within the vector, so it's not that crowded. But! I've noticed an issue while adding objects to my vector. Sometimes, when...

My VBO is not drawing anything. Hello! I've got a little problem with an nasty VBO, it's not drawing anything at all. The problem definitely lies somewhere in my VBO code, cause if i swith to immediate mode it's all fine. I'm using GLee for handling the extensions. But this p...

One big dynamic VBO, or multiple small static ones? I'm surprised about the answers i've gotten here. They are extremly informative and helpfull! After reading through all of them, i think i've gotten a better understanding then i had before. Since i'm planning on rotating my sprites, and curr...

One big dynamic VBO, or multiple small static ones? Maybe it's time that i learn shaders then. Sadly, i have no idea what they or nor how to use them. But a few well spent hours on google should take care of that :)

One big dynamic VBO, or multiple small static ones? Quote:Original post by Erik Rufelt It doesn't work with a texture atlas unless you use shaders. Okey. Hmm, then i guess the question is; Which is best?

One big dynamic VBO, or multiple small static ones? Thanks for all your answers! Quote:Not changing state that causes stalls (read as: use a texture atlas) yields much greater performance advantages. I had no idea there was such a performance gain from using a texture atlas. I'll keep this in mind...

Nasty vector trouble! Quote:Original post by m1o1d1 "What i thought, was that since the particles got added to the same list i'm allready iterating through, something nasty would happen and crash" While Iterating you assign a Pointer to the current Position and also a...

My VBO is not drawing anything. "You have to have a context created first" got me thinking. Turns out i constructed my VBO before i setup my context. Gah, stupid mistake. Thanks a million though for all your help! I'd make you a cake if i could!

My VBO is not drawing anything. Quote:Original post by rolfm It seems to me like you have not put enough data into your buffer. objectVertices has only 8 values, should this not be 9? Like {x,y,z,x,y,z,x,y,z}? I usually test these things by drawing GL_POINTS since its behavio...

My VBO is not drawing anything. Calling glGetError after binding my VBO the first time, returns an invalid operation. This comes from somewhere previous in my code though, since if i call it before binding i get the same result. Just don't want to leave anything out. Calling glG...
