Error 65543
« on: December 14, 2014, 14:40:12 »
Hello everyone,

I downloaded the file at the end of the page from this tutorial, and tried to run it. But this error came up :

ERROR: 65543
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.AssertionError: Failed to create the GLFW window
   at demo01.Demo01.init(Demo01.java:71)
   at demo01.Demo01.run(Demo01.java:304)

Has anyone an idea how to correct this ?

Hello Maxime,

I'm sorry that you get this error, since it seems, that your graphics driver does not support OpenGL 4.3.

What graphics card do you use and what driver version is installed?
Maybe switching to the latest driver version will fix this. If you have a Nvidia GPU with a Kepler chip, then it definitely should support that OpenGL version.


EDIT: The tutorial sources and binaries have been updated for better GLFW error reporting.

Hello Kai,

The graphics card is the Intel HD Graphics 3000 and I'm running the latest patch on my mac. I never heard of drivers for graphics card on a mac, but I'll look for it :)

Thank you

Edit: Here is the error I get with the new code :

   Description : The requested client API version is unavailable
   Stacktrace  :
      org.lwjgl.glfw.GLFW.nglfwCreateWindow(Native Method)

Okay, here is the source of the problem:

According to Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_graphics_processing_units the HD 3000 card only supports OpenGL up to version 3.3.  :(

So, I'm really sorry, but it seems that you will not be able to run (at least) this demo on that machine.

But because of this, and also because of Apple in general only supporting up to OpenGL 4.1 even on their very latest hardware, I am planning on porting that particular demo to OpenGL 3.1 with vertex and fragment shaders - so doing it the goold old GPGPU way.
I guess, Apple is to blame for this one.  ;)

But any further tutorials within that ray tracing tutorial will again use OpenGL 4.3, since that version for the first time introduced a way to handle large amounts of arbitrarily structured data streams with Shader Storage Buffer Objects (SSBOs).

So, the only thing left for me to tell you is, thanks for reading the tutorial and trying out the demo, and also sorry, because as it stands, this particular demo application will not run on your machine. :(

That's too bad  :-\  thank you for answering me in a very short amount of time.

 I'll buy a new computer in a few months. And in the meantime, I'll be looking forward your demo ported to OpenGL 3.1 ;)

Best Regards,

The tutorial sources and binary jars have been updated with an additional package "demo01_30" that is a port of the "demo01" using old-style GPGPU full-screen quad rendering with vertex/fragment shaders to trace the scene. It produces the exact same output as does the Compute Shader version, but using the other technique.

EDIT: due to the Content Distribution Network caching the old zip, you may have to wait until tomorrow before the old tutorial zip is replaced with the new one.
