    my first opengl program

    Hey I have finally got to a "decent" point in my little project.
    Its only a simple .0bj loader. I need some feedback how your fps's and what you would normally get with the amout of triangles that are been rendered. So i know if the program is lacking preformance.

    Please download it form here: here

    Things I will be adding after a little feedback:
    texture support
    vertex normals, so i can use lighting properly
    dialog window with options like render mode and any other little effects or what not.

    Thanks for any feedback

    i got ~430 fps. don't know if that's much cause no other program told me the number of triangles before. :-)

    it's a little black-and-white yet...

    HINT: animation speed is dependent on fps. i turned vertical sync on/off and the animation speed changed. if you need guidance on this see "Implementing Steady Motion" by Robert Dunlop (

    I found a major bottleneck in the program slowing everything down which i have fixed and i am currently adding the vertex normals, so new version will use filled polys and some nice lighting .

    Thanks for your feed back and that article, will get reading it asap
