Hardware acceleration for SFML drawing?
« on: July 22, 2012, 04:10:48 am »
Hey guys,
Does anyone know if there is a setting somewhere that enables hardware acceleration and double buffering for SFML2 drawing? I just want to be able to make an sf::polygon and have that accelerated instead of having to do all of my 2D drawing in OpenGL.

Thanks!

SFML uses OpenGL so if your OpenGL renderer is on hardware (which is most probably true nowadays; i.e., it's not a software renderer) then SFML will automatically be hardware accelerated. You don't need to do any extra work here.

Yeah, my video drivers in Mint Linux were not working properly. got it all fixed now. Regardless I am just going to use straight OpenGL to draw.
