An open gl error - useful piece

The OpenGL Pipeline Newsletter - Volume

Cleaning up your application's OpenGL usage is the first step to optimize your application and gain better performance. In this article we will demonstrate how gDEBugger helps you verify that your application uses OpenGL correctly and calls the OpenGL API commands you expect it to call.

Remove OpenGL Errors

Removing OpenGL errors before starting to optimize your graphics application's performance is an important task. It is important because in most cases, when an OpenGL error occurs, OpenGL ignores the API call that generated the error. If OpenGL ignores actions that you want it to perform, it may reduce your application's robustness and dramatically affect rendering performance. The OpenGL error mechanism does not tell you the location of the error and therefore it is hard to track GL errors. gDEBugger points you to the exact location of the OpenGL error. It offers two mechanisms for tracking errors:

  1. gDEBuggerBreak on OpenGL Errors: Breaks the application run whenever an OpenGL error occurs.
  2. Break on Detected Errors: Tells gDEBugger's OpenGL implementation to perform additional error tests that OpenGL drivers do not perform. gDEBugger will also break the application run whenever a detected error occurs.

After the application run is suspended, the gDEBugger System Events view will display the error description. The Call Stack and Source Code viewers will show you the exact location of the error.

Remove Redundant OpenGL Calls

Most OpenGL-based applications generate a lot of redundant OpenGL API calls. Some of these redundant calls may have a significant impact on rendering performance. We offer a two-step solution for locating and removing these redundant calls:

  1. Use gDEBugger's OpenGL Function Calls Statistics view to get an overview of the last fully rendered frame. This view displays the number of times each API function call was executed in the previously fully rendered frame. You should look for:
    • functions that have a high percentage of the total API function executions.
    • functions that are known to reduce rendering performance: glGet* / glIs* functions, immediate mode rendering, glFinish, etc.
    • redundant OpenGL state changes: changing the same state over and over.
    • repeatedly turning on and off the same OpenGL mechanisms.
  2. gDEBuggerUse the Breakpoints dialog to break on each redundant API function call. When the application run breaks, use the OpenGL Function Calls History, Call Stack and Source Code views to view the call stack and source code that led to the redundant API call

This process should be repeated until the redundant calls that seem to have impact on rendering performance are removed.

Locate Software Fallbacks

When the application calls an OpenGL function or establishes a combination of OpenGL state that is not accelerated by the graphics hardware (GPU), the driver runs these functions on the CPU in "software mode." This causes a significant decrease in rendering performance. gDEBugger and NVIDIA GLExpert driver integration offers a mechanism that traces software fallbacks. Simply check the "Report Software Fallback Messages" and "Break on GLExpert Reports" check boxes in gDEBugger's NVIDIA GLExpert Settings dialog. In this mode, whenever a "Software Fallback" occurs, gDEBugger will break the debugged application run, letting you view the call stack and source code that led to the software fallback.

We hope this article will help you deliver "cleaner" and faster OpenGL based applications. In the next article we will discuss the use of ATI and NVIDIA Performance Counters together with gDEBugger's Performance Views for finding graphics pipeline performance bottlenecks.

How to Fix Minecraft OpenGL Errors

Run into an OpenGL error when playing Minecraft? You&#;re not alone. So don&#;t panic. You can fix Minecraft OpenGL errors easily.

OpenGL accelerates Minecraft running in your computer, so you can play Minecraft faster and smoother. This feature is enabled by default in order to bring the best possible experiences to players.

The Minecraft OpenGL errors can read either:

  • Minecraft was unable to start because it failed to find an accelerated OpenGL mode.
  • OpenGL Error: (Invalid value)
  • OpenGL Error: (Invalid framebuffer operation)

How to fix Minecraft OpenGL error:

Here are the solutions for you. You shouldn&#;t have to try them all; just work your way down the list until your error disappears.

  1. Update your graphics card driver
  2. Turn off Advanced OpenGL in Minecraft
  3. Disable Show GL Errors
  4. Temporarily disable Mods
  5. Modify graphics settings in your game
  6. Install the latest Java version

Method 1: Update your graphics card driver

The OpenGL errors in Minecraft relates to your graphics card driver. Corrupted or outdated graphics card driver will result in Minecraft not working problem, including the OpenGL error popups. So you should update your graphics card driver to the latest version.

Two options to update your graphics card driver:

  • Option 1 &#; You can manually update your video driver by searching the latest driver on the website of the manufacturer, then download and install it in your computer. This requires time and computer skills.
  • Option 2 &#; If you don&#;t have the time or patience, you can do it automatically with Driver Easy.

Driver Easy will automatically recognize your system and find the correct drivers for it. You don’t need to know exactly what system your computer is running, you don’t need to be troubled by the wrong driver you would be downloading, and you don’t need to worry about making a mistake when installing.

You can update your drivers automatically with either the FREE or the Pro version of Driver Easy. But with the Pro version it takes just 2 steps (and you get full support and a day money back guarantee):

1) Download and install Driver Easy.

2) Run Driver Easy and click the Scan Now button. Driver Easy will then scan your computer and detect any problem drivers.

3) Click the Update button next to your flagged graphics card to automatically download the latest correct driver (you can do this with the Freeversion), then manually install it in your computer.

Or click Update All to automatically download and install the correct version of all the drivers that are missing or out of date on your system (this requires the Pro version – you’ll be prompted to upgrade when you click Update All).

4) Restart Windows to take effect.

Now launch Minecraft and see if it stops popping up the OpenGL error.


Method 2: Turn off OpenGL in Minecraft

OpenGL is enabled by default in your game, so as to provide you with the best gaming experience. However, some graphics cards don&#;t render the OpenGL feature. In these circumstances, you&#;ll see the Minecraft OpenGL errors. So you can turn off OpenGL for Minecraft to stop that error.

Here&#;s what to do:

1) In Minecraft, click Options > Video Settings.

2) Click the Advanced OpenGL setting, and turn it OFF.

3) Save your changes and restart your game.

Now play Minecraft and see if it works.

That&#;s a no go for you? Don&#;t worry. There are other solutions to try.


Method 3: Disable Show GL Errors

There is an option in Minecraft that decides whether to show OpenGL errors. It&#;s ON by default, which shows OpenGL errors in the chat. You can disable that option when there&#;s a known conflict.

To do so, follow the steps below:

1) In Minecraft, click Options.

2) Go to Video Settings > Others…, then click Show GL Errors to OFF.

3) Save the change and restart Minecraft.

Hopefully OpenGl errors stop happening again.


Method 4: Temporarily disable Mods

Using mods for Minecraft may cause OpenGL errors occuring in your game, as some mods may be incompatible with OpenGL. So you can temporarily disable mods for Minecraft and see if OpenGL errors stop occurring.

If OpenGL errors stop popping up, then you should find the culprit &#; mods. You can disable your mods one by one to troubleshoot which mod causes your problem.

If OpenGL errors still persist, mods aren&#;t your problem and ensure to re-enable mods later on.


Method 5: Modify graphics settings in your game

As per user reports, some graphics settings can cause OpenGL problems like OpenGL error , so you can temporarily disable some graphics settings in Minecraft. It works like a charm in some cases.

You can modify graphics settings by following steps below:

1) In Minecraft, click Options > Video Settings.

2) Modify settings like VBOs, Render Region, and Clear Water. If the option is already ON, set it to OFF.

3) Modify each setting one by one and check if Minecraft error stops.

If you can&#;t access Minecraft video settings, you can modify these options in the configuration file under Minrcraft folder.

There is a file named sprers.eu that&#;s stored the changeable options in Minecraft. This file is located in the Minecraft folder on your computer. You can edit the settings in this sprers.eu file and save your changes.

If you&#;re not sure which option can be edited, check this post on Minecraft for more details.

Still no luck? Don&#;t give up hope. Move on to the next fix.


Method 6: Install the latest Java version

Minecraft is a game developed from Java, so Java files are critical to play Minecraft. If Java version is outdated in your computer, you&#;re likely to have the OpenGL error.

Usually Minecraft will include the Java files when downloading Minecraft. So you can uninstall Minecraft then reinstall Minecraft to have the latest compatible Java package files.

Or you can manually download Java files from this page, then follow the on-screen instructions to finish installing.

Once installed, re-launch Minecraft and see if OpenGL errors has been fixed.


So there you have it &#; six fixes for Minecraft OpenGL errors.

Feel free to share your experience with Minecraft by leaving us a comment below.

Error Handling in OpenGL

Many of the features of the OpenGL API are very useful and powerful. But, it’s quite possible that OpenGL programs may contain errors. So, it becomes important to learn error handling in OpenGL programs. The OpenGL and GLU libraries have a simple method of recording errors. When an OpenGL program encounters an error in a call to a base library routine or a GLU routine, it records an error code internally, and the routine which caused the error is ignored. Although, OpenGL records only a single error code at any given time. OpenGL uses its own methods to detect errors. Once an error occurs, no other error code will be recorded until the program explicitly queries the OpenGL error state.

Syntax:

GLenum code;
code = glGetError ();

This function call returns the current error code and clears the internal error flag:

  • If the returned value is equal to the GLNOERROR OpenGL symbolic constant, everything is fine.
  • If there is any other return value, then it indicates that a problem has occurred.

The base OpenGL library provides a definition for a number of symbolic constants which represent different error conditions. The GLU library also defines a number of error codes, but most of them have almost meaningless names such as GLUNURBSERROR1, GLUNURBSERROR2, and so on.

The GLU library contains a function that returns a descriptive string for each of the GLU and GL errors. To use it, first retrieve the current error code and then pass it as a parameter to this function. The return value can be printed out using the C standard library functions like fprintf() function.

Below is the code snippet to implement the above approach:

C

 

Explanation: The value returned by gluErrorString points to a string located inside the GLU library. Since it is not a dynamically allocated string, so it must not be explicitly deallocated by the program. Additionally, it mustn&#;t be modified by the program (therefore, the const modifier on the declaration of string). It is quite easy to encapsulate these function calls into a general error-reporting function in the program.

The function given below will retrieve the current error code, print the descriptive error string, and return the code to the calling routine:

C

 

Explanation: By default, glGetError only prints error numbers, which isn&#;t easy to understand unless error codes have been memorized already. Thus, it often makes sense to write a small helper function to easily print out the error strings together with where the error check function was called:

GLenum glCheckError_(const char *file, int line)
{
    GLenum errorCode;
    while ((errorCode = glGetError()) != GL_NO_ERROR)
    {
        std::string error;
        switch (errorCode)
        {
            case GL_INVALID_ENUM:                  error = &#;INVALID_ENUM&#;; break;
            case GL_INVALID_VALUE:                 error = &#;INVALID_VALUE&#;; break;
            case GL_INVALID_OPERATION:             error = &#;INVALID_OPERATION&#;; break;
            case GL_STACK_OVERFLOW:                error = &#;STACK_OVERFLOW&#;; break;
            case GL_STACK_UNDERFLOW:               error = &#;STACK_UNDERFLOW&#;; break;
            case GL_OUT_OF_MEMORY:                 error = &#;OUT_OF_MEMORY&#;; break;
            case GL_INVALID_FRAMEBUFFER_OPERATION: error = &#;INVALID_FRAMEBUFFER_OPERATION&#;; break;
        }
        std::cout << error << &#;

Support Center - Help topic

EBPro uses a newer version of OpenGL than earlier versions of software. OpenGL is an API used for rendering 3D graphics, and if it is not up to date or is running incorrectly, can cause various display issues. These display issues can manifest as Windows®with all black interiors inside the EBPro software, or as OpenGL errors being thrown by EBPro itself.

If you are experiencing any issues with how the software displays, first attempt updating any video card or graphics drivers on the computer running EBPro. If the drivers are up to date, or OpenGL is not supported by the computer running EBPro, then you should change the default rendering method of EBPro.

To change the default rendering method, first navigate to the download directory of EBPro, which defaults to C:\MapleSystems\EBPro. In this directory, search for sprers.eu and run it. When run, DisplaySetting will open a window to change the default rendering method. Select Software render and click Ok. After clicking Ok, restart EBPro and the display should appear correct.

OpenGL Error

If the parameters of a function call do not match the set of parameters allowed by OpenGL, or do not interact reasonably with state that is already set in the context, then an OpenGL Error will result. The errors are presented as an error code.

For most OpenGL errors, and for most OpenGL functions, a function that emits an error will have no effect. No OpenGL state will be error + no running copy + squid, no rendering will be initiated. It will be as if the function had not been called. There are a few cases where this is not the case.

Catching errors (the hard way)

OpenGL errors are stored in a queue until the error is actually handled.[footnotes 1] Therefore, if you do not regularly test for errors, you will not know necessarily which function call elicited a particular error. As such, error testing should be done regularly if you need to know where an error came from.

To fetch the next error in the queue (and to remove it from the queue), call this function:

GLenum glGetError()

If the error queue is empty, it will return GL_NO_ERROR, an open gl error. Otherwise, it will return one of the error enumerators below and remove that error from the queue. So to fetch all of the errors currently in the queue, you would need to loop.

V &#; E

A simple loop to extract the current OpenGL errors:

GLenumerr;while((err=glGetError())!=GL_NO_ERROR){// Process/log the error.}

Note: No OpenGL function call is valid when an OpenGL Context is not made current. Depending on the platform, a call to glGetError without having a context made current may crash or return any value, including indefinitely returning a valid OpenGL error code. So if you see an infinite loop in such a function, this is likely the reason why.

Meaning of errors

The glGetError function returns one of the following error codes, or GL_NO_ERROR if no (more) errors are available. Each error code represents a category of user error.

GL_INVALID_ENUM, 0x
Given when an enumeration parameter is not a legal enumeration for that function. This is given only for local problems; if the spec allows the enumeration in certain circumstances, where other parameters or state dictate those circumstances, then GL_INVALID_OPERATION is the result instead.
GL_INVALID_VALUE, 0x
Given when a value parameter is not a legal value for that function. This is only given for local problems; if the spec allows the value in certain circumstances, where other parameters or state dictate those circumstances, then GL_INVALID_OPERATION is the result instead.
GL_INVALID_OPERATION, 0x
Given when the set of state for a command is not legal for the parameters given to that command. It is also given an open gl error commands where combinations of parameters define what the legal parameters are.
GL_STACK_OVERFLOW, 0x
Given when a stack pushing operation cannot be done because it would overflow the limit of that stack's size.
GL_STACK_UNDERFLOW, 0x
Given when a stack popping operation cannot be done because the stack is already at its lowest point.
GL_OUT_OF_MEMORY, 0x
Given when performing an operation that can allocate memory, and the memory cannot be allocated. The results of OpenGL functions that return this error are undefined; it is allowable for partial execution of an operation to happen in this circumstance.
GL_INVALID_FRAMEBUFFER_OPERATION, 0x
Given when doing anything that would attempt to read from or write/render to a framebuffer that is not complete.
GL_CONTEXT_LOST, 0x (with OpenGL or ARB_KHR_robustness)
Given if the OpenGL context has been lost, due to a graphics card reset.
GL_TABLE_TOO_LARGE1, 0x
Part of the ARB_imaging extension.

1: These error codes are deprecated in and removed in core and above.

In the OpenGL Reference documentation, most errors are listed explicitly. However, GL_OUT_OF_MEMORY and GL_CONTEXT_LOST could be generated by virtually any OpenGL function. And they can be generated for reasons not directly associated with that particular function call.

Catching errors (the easy way)

Main article: Debug Output

The debug output feature provides a simple method for your application to be notified via an application-defined message callback function when an OpenGL error (or other an open gl error event) occurs within the driver. Simply enable debug output, register a callback, and wait for it to be called with a DEBUG_TYPE_ERROR message.

This method avoids the need to sprinkle expensive and code-obfuscating glGetError() calls around your application to catch and localize the causes of OpenGL errors (and the need to conditionally compile them into debug builds to avoid the performance hit in optimized builds). The feature can even ensure that message callback functions are invoked on the same thread and within the very same call stack as the GL call that triggered the GL error (or performance warning).

V &#; E

A simple example showing how to utilize debug message callbacks (e.g. for detecting OpenGL errors):

voidGLAPIENTRYMessageCallback(GLenumsource,GLenumtype,GLuintid,GLenumseverity,GLsizeilength,constGLchar*message,constvoid*userParam){fprintf(stderr,"GL CALLBACK: %s type = 0x%x, severity = 0x%x, message = %s\n",(type==GL_DEBUG_TYPE_ERROR?"** GL ERROR **":""),type,severity,message);}// During init, enable debug outputglEnable(GL_DEBUG_OUTPUT);glDebugMessageCallback(MessageCallback,0);

Under most circumstances, a function that generates an error will exit without changing any OpenGL state or initiating any OpenGL operations. Ubuntu mysql error log will not modify any client memory passed into those functions by the user (ie: pointer arguments). Under such errors, return values are zero or something equally innocuous. However, there are certain circumstances were an error happens and OpenGL state is modified.

Whenever the GL_OUT_OF_MEMORY error is generated, the state of the OpenGL context and/or objects is undefined.

The GL_CONTEXT_LOST error is generated (which requires OpenGL or ARB_KHR_robustness) by python fatal error unable remap commands after the OpenGL context was lost, an open gl error. Those commands have no side effects, with a few special-case exceptions for functions that can block the CPU.

The multi-bind functions functions have unusual error properties. Because they aggregate the ability to bind multiple objects at once, if the binding of one object fails with an error, the others will be bound as normal. Only the erronous objects will fail to bind. Note that there is no way to detect which objects failed to bind (other than querying the context for each binding point).

No error contexts

V &#; E

Core in version
Core since version
ARB extensionKHR_no_error

An OpenGL Context can be created which does not report OpenGL Errors. If the context bit GL_CONTEXT_FLAG_NO_ERROR_BIT is set to true, then the context will not report most errors. It will still report GL_OUT_OF_MEMORY_ERROR where appropriate, but this can be delayed from the point where the error actually happens, an open gl error. No other errors will be reported.

This also means that the implementation will not check for errors either. So if you provide incorrect parameters to a function that would have provoked an error, you will get undefined behavior instead. This includes the possibility of an open gl error termination.

Contexts cannot have the no error bit and the robustsness or debug bits.

Notes

  1. ↑The specification "OpenGL (Core Profile) - October 22, ", chapter " Errors" doesn't talk about a error queue, it talks about several flag-code pairs.

How to resolve an OpenGL error in the Proton Mail Bridge

On rare occasions, users may see an error window while setting up Bridge for Windows that prevents them from continuing the configuration. This error occurs only on devices using older AMD graphics cards due to an issue with the data libraries. 

The solution to this problem is to delete the libraries in question. This article explains the process to delete these files.

1, an open gl error. To locate the files in the following folder:

C:\Program Files\Proton Technologies AG\Proton Mail Bridge

2) From there, look for the three files: sprers.eu, sprers.eu, and sprers.eu. Right-click on the file name and select Delete from the dropdown menu.

Once the files are deleted, you can continue with the Bridge installation.

Cleaning up your application's OpenGL usage is the first step to optimize your application and gain better performance. In this article we will demonstrate how gDEBugger helps you verify that your application uses OpenGL correctly and calls the OpenGL API commands you expect it to call.

Remove OpenGL Errors

Removing OpenGL errors before starting to optimize your graphics application's performance is an important task. It is important because in most cases, when an OpenGL error occurs, OpenGL ignores the API call that generated the error. If OpenGL ignores actions that you want it to perform, it may reduce your application's robustness and dramatically affect rendering performance. The OpenGL error mechanism does not tell you the location of the error and therefore it is hard to track GL errors. gDEBugger points you to the exact location of the OpenGL error. It offers two mechanisms for tracking errors:

  1. gDEBuggerBreak on OpenGL Errors: Breaks the application run whenever an OpenGL error occurs.
  2. Break on Detected Errors: Tells gDEBugger's OpenGL implementation to perform additional error tests that OpenGL drivers do not perform. gDEBugger will also break the application run whenever a detected error occurs.

After the application run is suspended, an open gl error, the gDEBugger System Events view will display the error description. The Call Stack and Source Code viewers will show you the exact location of the error.

Remove Redundant OpenGL Calls

Most OpenGL-based applications generate a lot of redundant OpenGL API calls. Some of these redundant calls may have a significant impact on rendering performance. We offer a two-step solution for locating and removing these redundant calls:

  1. Use gDEBugger's OpenGL Function Calls Statistics view to get an overview of the last fully rendered frame. An open gl error view displays the number of times each API function call was executed in the previously fully rendered frame. You should look for:
    • functions that have a high percentage of the total API function executions.
    • functions that are known to reduce rendering performance: glGet* / glIs* functions, immediate mode rendering, glFinish, etc.
    • redundant OpenGL state changes: changing the same state over and over.
    • repeatedly turning on and off the same OpenGL mechanisms.
  2. gDEBuggerUse the Breakpoints dialog to break on each redundant API function call, an open gl error. When the application run breaks, use the OpenGL Function Calls History, Call Stack and Source Code views to view the call stack and source code that led to the redundant API call

This process should be repeated until the redundant calls that seem to have impact on rendering performance are removed.

Locate Software Fallbacks

When the application calls an OpenGL function or establishes a combination of OpenGL state that is not accelerated by the graphics hardware (GPU), the driver runs these functions on the CPU in "software critical error 8047 This causes a significant decrease in rendering performance. gDEBugger and NVIDIA GLExpert driver integration offers a mechanism that traces software fallbacks. Simply check the "Report Software Fallback Messages" and "Break on GLExpert Reports" check boxes in gDEBugger's NVIDIA GLExpert Settings dialog. In this mode, whenever a "Software Fallback" occurs, gDEBugger will break the debugged application run, letting you view the call stack and source code that led to the software fallback.

We hope this article will help you deliver "cleaner" and faster OpenGL based applications. In the next article we will discuss the use of ATI and NVIDIA Performance Counters together with gDEBugger's Performance Views for finding graphics pipeline performance bottlenecks.
