I strongly suggest that you follow the solution using GLUT which greatly simplifies interaction to Windows. We will do this later. GLU functions start with a prefix ” glu ” e. Alternatively, you could also use pre-processor directives to instruct compiler about the libraries used I prefer this approach, which avoids manual configuration for every project: Nehe’s production maintains an excellent OpenGL tutorial http: You can find the commands used in Eclipse CDT for build the project at “.

In “Location”, set your working directory. Assume that the headers gl. I think you get the picture.! There is no need to configure the “include-paths” and the “library-paths”, as they are implicitly defined.

Alternatively, you could also use glsefup directives to instruct compiler about the libraries used I prefer this approach, which avoids manual configuration for every project: Installing and updating to the latest available drivers with glsetup, at the time datedmeant that most of the graphics problems disappeared after a little fiddling around with Quake 3’s main game settings.

Download, unzip and copy ” glut. Lesson 1 to 5 do not require this header.

OpenGL/GLSetup – Chris Hecker’s Website

Nehe’s lessons are explained in Win32 API, which is complex, cumbersome and hard and to understand. For example, when compared to a games machine that had a classic Voodoo3 in place 16MBthe default drivers dated supplied on the VooDoos driver CD don’t run q3 very well at all – missing polygons, openg surfaces and generally a bad visual experience.


An optional shared library: We need the following sets of openg, in programming OpenGL: GLEW provides efficient run-time mechanisms for determining which OpenGL extensions are supported on the target platform. In “Templates”, select “Win32 Console Application”.

As an aside, the default drivers did seem to affect the connection quality to the internet when using a dial up modem device.

Alternative, you can use preprocessor directives: Refer to the above ” section ” on “Eclipse with GCC”.

Quoting from the opengl. More often than not, it was supplied on CD’s used to install purchased games. OpenGL is language neutral, i. I’ve been reliably informed that the GForce card itself is good but the drivers aren’t too hot on NT platform Maybe it’s me, and I am a little fussy at times, I expect a graphics card to run a game like q3 straight out of the box, I don’t especially expect to have to install further drivers to get it all working.

Take note of the headers and libraries: Unzip and copy ” glut.

Although this article has been updated slightly it should be noted that it was originally written when Quake 3 was published c. Once done it’s fine, it actually give better colour then the Voodoo but it doesn’t have the sharpness or the speed.


It’s a must to run this really as graphics card manufacturers don’t seem to update their own drivers too often, usually the graphics card drivers supplied on the products installation CD are the latest drivers! GLU functions start with a prefix ” glu ” e.

It is important to locate the directory path and the actual filename of these header files and libraries in your operating platform in order to properly setup the OpenGL programming environment.

We will do this later. Ah well, one can only q3dream.! The Core OpenGL models an object via a set of geometric primitives, such as point, line, and polygon.

Installing and using Open GL’s glsetup.exe

Create a new “Win32 Console Application” glsdtup In the editor panel for ” GL01Hello. There is no need to configure the “include-paths” and “library-paths”, as they are implicitly defined. When openGL drivers are used they make a noticeable difference to Quake 3’s performance than the ‘default’ graphics card drivers as supplied with and when the the game is installed. Nonetheless, the solutions are also ported to all the other platforms.
