Latest OpenGL ES Emulator Bug.

#1

The latest GL ES emulator seems to have a few issue.

  1. The host GPU supports up to OpenGL 4.5, yet still I have to force loose context creation in order to create any context > 3.0. I don’t have the time atm to revert back the binaries, but iirc the n-1 version was able to support 3.1 context without issues.

  2. The shader compiler for a loosely created OpenGL ES 3.2 context fails to compile shaders with the following errors.
    ERROR: 0:1: Syntax error, version 320 not supported
    ERROR: 1 compilation errors. No code generated.

The version begin reported is missing the ‘es’ at the end, even though its in the actual shader source.

Not griping, just point out a few issues I experience with the new emulator. Thanks for keeping this valuable tool alive.

Hi Carrado, Andrey,

I’ve spoken to the PVRVFrame lead about this issue. We’ll be doing a minor update to the 2016r1 soon. This revision will include a fix for the GLSL ES version issue you have described.

Thanks, well appreciated. This is by far the most responsive forum I’ve experienced. response is prompt( this is highly relative, but you all get the drift ) and substantial. Unlike. others that tend to skirt around the issues to avoid accountability and offering endless working around instead of fixing the problem. Kudos Imagination…kudos…
