  1. In Topic: How do I texture a glutSolidSphere (can't be gluSphere)?

    Posted 25 Apr 2015

    Hi, my understanding is that the GLUT routines including the solid sphere don't have texture coordinates, the teapot does. You can apply textures to the sphere etc but it won't work correctly eg won't rotate.

    Here are a couple of articles that may be of help.

    Texture map in solid sphere using GLUT (OpenGL)

    Simple method for texture mapping on sphere using gluSphere and gluQuadraticTexture in OpenGL.

    GLUT has routines that make it easier to create windows.

    What of the following are you using?
    1) version of OpenGL
    2) Windows OS and is it 64bit?
    3) IDE/compiler
    4) tutorial

    Thanks for the quick reply! So what is the reason for using the constructor if all those values (name, account#, and balance) are all already stored in the Account object?

    I'm quite happy to use default values for parameters. Any function can use them.

    The values are not already stored in the Account object. If you don't supply an argument then the parameter will be given the supplied value.

    You can test it by giving the default values more unusual values.

    The name was likely not set in the initialization list, because you have a fixed length char array for the name. A function would be needed to check the size.
  3. In Topic: Seg Fault in recursive sorting algorithm

    Posted 23 Apr 2015

    Hi, dualPivotQuicksort goes into a infinite recursive loop when the array is already sorted.

    This section is true and repeats.

      if(leftBound + 1 < rightBound - 1)
        dualPivotQuicksort(array, leftBound, rightBound, ncomp, nswap);
  4. In Topic: Whats the best way to do collision detection ?

    Posted 23 Apr 2015

    Hi, you can test whether the player is colliding at the left or right and adjust the player, before testing for the ground.

    It is highly likely that long is 32 bit.
