SFML.NET doesn't expose sf::Context
« on: November 16, 2011, 07:09:58 pm »
Like the title says. I've looked at all 3 DLLs and none of them includes a class named "Context".
I need this class because I'm trying to make a multithreaded loading screen and, even though in my PC everything works fine, some computers seem to be experiencing a crash after the load. My current theory(untested) is that the lack of explicit context setting might be the reason for weird behavior.

So... are there plans to expose it to .NET or am I doing something wrong?

SFML 1.6 or 2?

Then you don't need an explicit sf::Context.

Could you show a simplified (if possible, complete and minimal) version of your code that reproduces the problem?

This program:
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/6459451/threading.zip

works on my PC, but crashes on some computers(at least a Sandy Bridge Linux 64 bits, maybe more)

To run it:
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=. mono ThreadingTest.exe

Source code:
Code: [Select]

using System;
using System.Threading;
using SFML.Window;
using SFML.Graphics;

namespace ThreadingTest
{
public class Test
{
static Texture myTexture;
static bool threadOver = false;

static void myThreadProc()
{
myTexture = new Texture("texture.png");

threadOver = true;
}

static void Main()
{
using (var win = new RenderWindow(new VideoMode(640, 480, 32), "threading test"))
{
new Thread(myThreadProc).Start();

win.Closed += (sender, e) => win.Close();

while (win.IsOpened()) {
win.DispatchEvents();

win.Clear(Color.Black);

if (threadOver)
{
using (var mySprite = new Sprite(myTexture))
{
win.Draw(mySprite);
}
}

win.Display();
}
}
}
}
}


Since it works on my PC, this bug is particularly bad since it's hard for me to reproduce.
Hopefully, the above source code should be simple enough to make it obvious what the problem is.

I see nothing wrong.

Do you have more information about the crash (where, when, in which module, ...)?
Have you tried it on other 64-bits systems?

On the computer in which this program crashes, the program simple crashes(returning 1) without printing anything(so no stacktrace is shown)

My computer is 64 bits Intel CPU+NVIDIA GPU and runs that example just fine, so it seems very specific to some computers.

Could be faulty drivers? Have you made sure the drivers on those computers are up to date?

The person is telling me that he's running with updated drivers.

I believe the problem is that separate threads must use separate GL contexts. Loading the texture needs to be done in a separate context that shares textures with the RenderWindow's, which is why sf::Context would be useful.

So it's probably not  a problem with your code or SFML, but rather a configuration or platform issue.

Nop. Please read the thread from the beginning ;)
