    OpenGL Display screwy

    I just reformatted my pc, and when i execute my robot it just shows a black scrren with a white square on the bottom left. I know its outdated ogl lib's or something, cuz i forget everything i did to it before when i started opengl, and i tried dloading the new ones off opengl.org, no go.

    the codes exactly as it was before i formatted, and it worked. Its got to be libraries, dll's, and .h files that aren't update enough, the code is fine, but since u insist...

    I second that, but if you downloaded the libraries from opengl.org I would highly doubt they are oudated! You could be setting things up incorrectly in your initialization code (unless you are using some tutorial as your base code).

    EDIT: guess my post was late, what is linker
    EDIT1: are you doing this as a win32 project? This works perfectly for me

    EDIT2: wtf is linker? I deleted that

    While scrolling through your program i noticed there isn't any
    error checking at all!
    Maybe something goes wrong?

    Look the program works on every other computer because the code is fine. Since i formatted i don't have a file i need, or they are outdated, it HAS to be.

    You entirely formatted? Or just reinstalled the OS?
    I really suggest you include error checking!

    well then go download all of the approrpriate files. headers in the GL folder of your include directory, libs in your lib directory, and the dlls in your system32 directory. That will work.
    EDIT: and still no one tells me what the linker library is for, tsk tsk

    I always include error checking when I'm learning something or if someone is going to use it on another computer. Otherwise I can usually get by without it. I can easily recognize if I forgot to set something I needed to in the window class or something like that.
