LWJGL3 runs "wrong" OpenGL version [newbe][SOLVED]
« on: June 21, 2016, 11:03:13 »
I'm pretty new to programing with LWJGL. To begin working, I wanted to check which version of OpenGL LWJGL3 is running.
I used
Code: [Select]
GL11.glGetString(GL11.GL_VERSION) and found out that I was running
Code: [Select]
2.1 INTEL-10.14.58My MacBook Pro however is supporting OpenGL version 4.1 according to Apple's Website.
I recognized the issue when trying to specify a
Code: [Select]
#version 410 in the fragment shader which gave me an error, that the version was not supported.

Now my question is: Is it possible to manually define version that LWJGL is using?
(I tried the way it was described on the wiki http://wiki.lwjgl.org/wiki/Version_selection, but it did not work for me)

Thanks already in advance!

String ;)

See: http://www.glfw.org/faq.html#how-do-i-create-an-opengl-30-context

Also: The wiki page you referenced is outdated and belongs to LWJGL 2.x

Worked fine for me. Thanks!

For any reader who has the same problem, you have to insert the glfw context lines before you ceate the window via glfwCreateWindow();!!!
