Texture Color is wrong

Post: #1
Greetings -

I am porting my linux/win game demo to my mac. Everything is working great (OpenGL/SDL/GLEW are cross-platform beauties :-) ). Except.....
My texture colors are wrong...
The greens are ok but the reds are blue. My hunch is that it is an endian issue. I am using SDL_image, and I optimistically thought it handled that. After some googling, I have discovered SDL_Endian.h, but I do not understand how to use it to convert my textures. How do you use endian in SDL to convert surfaces?

Thanks in advance for any help/tips/advice....

It's very unlikely to be endianness. Most file formats define pixels as being single bytes in a long row. Instead, I'd try replacing GL_RGB in glTexImage2D with GL_BGR. Smile

if they're "ARGB" you'll need something like:

#if defined(__BIG_ENDIAN__)

Remember, Macs come in both endianness' these days Wink

Hey Keith, just because you made the jump doesn't mean we need to respect the way you eat your eggs. Wink

Thank you all for your help...I am making progress.

I want to flip my surface before rendering (it is upside down). I have crafted the following. It is simple code that loops through each pixel in a surface and copies it to an identical surface while inverting the y-values.

It works - I am happy, but I do not understand why the >> 2 is needed.(The code is based off similar code from the net).

Uint32* srcbuff32;
  Uint32* destbuff32;
  Uint32 x,y;

  if (image->format->BytesPerPixel==4)
  for(x = 0; x < (Uint32)srcimage->w; x++)
        for(y = 0; y < (Uint32)srcimage->h; y++)
        srcbuff32 = (Uint32 *) srcimage->pixels;
        srcbuff32 += ((y*srcimage->pitch) >> 2) + x;
        destbuff32 = (Uint32 *) destimage->pixels;
        Uint32 hh = static_cast<Uint32>(destimage->h-1);
        destbuff32 += (((hh-y) * destimage->pitch) >> 2) + x;

Thanks again for any feedback.

"->pitch" is width measured in bytes, not pixels, and since you are using 32 bit pixels aka 4 bytes, you need to divide by 4.

(">> 2" is equivalent to "/ 4')

Ahhh...that makes complete sense. I knew it was dividing...but couldn't think of why...

Thanks again for your help.
