Added multisampling to GLFW - Alxx

Hi everybody. I’m using exclusive selfmade version of GLFW that supports new hint GLFW_SAMPLES and sets corresponding mode with multisampling (Win32-version is the only that recognizes the hint, but support for linux is possible). I sent message to the author, didn’t get anything. Could be good addition for new release.
Yet one - more hints are possible (unresizable window, window with no borders etc.) Hints are optional, any version that cannot support them is free to ignore. Your fantasy is welcome.

Hi Alxx!

I have replied to your mail now. I had trouble with my SMTP server not being able to deliver the mail to you the other day, so I tried it again yesterday.

In any case, I am very interested in your work.

So did anything come of this? I assume GLFW 2.4.2 doesn’t support multisampling since that’s something that needs to be specified at window creation time?

Any news about multisampling ? that would be a great addition to GLFW codebase ( i browsed the CVS but didn’t see any changes regarding this :frowning: )

the stuff about controlling window flags (unresizable, no maximize/minimize button etc.) should have been implemented long ago in the mode-flags of glfwOpenWindow…

If ALxx is still ‘reading’ this thread, could he post his GLFW mod. somewhere ??
I’m dying to have multi-sampling support !

Please, please :slight_smile:

Yes, people, I’m still here… I was disappointed slightly finding the absence of multisampling in our belowed GLFW 2.5.0, so I’m still using my ‘mod’. If someone wishes, I can email changed files, so you can build 2.4.2 AA version (but you have to publish them yourself).
