Cannot open opengl games in 7.1-rc2

Hi Android-x86 experts,
I used to be able to open some opengl games with 7.1-rc1, but I can't open
them successfully any more with 7.1-rc2 (game exits right after starting).
I suspect if it's because we use SwiftShader as the software renderer. Am I
able to switch to other software renderer to see if it fixes the issue? Let
me know if you have any suggestions or need more details.

Thanks!

Philip

Hi Chih-Wei,
I used qemu kvm with no GPU.
I tested 王者荣耀 and 穿越火线.
I actually compiled the source by myself. So, if you can point me to where
I can enable the old software renderer, that will be great.

Thanks,
Philip

What device and GPU did you use?
What games did you test?
It's possible. But you need to rebuild the source
to enable the old software renderer by mesa.

The same problem is with VMware. If you download the android x64 with 3D
acceleration, the game "Defens Zone 3" starts with a black screen, and
there is a sound and when you press the ESC, you exit the game. If you
download android with the key "nomodeset" then this game starts fine. I
also compiled android x64 from the MESA 17.2.2. In this assembly, the game
starts normally when using 3D acceleration. In my opinion, the problem is
in MESA 17.1.x.

Hi fguy,
How did you compile x64 with Mesa 17.2.2? Any guide to follow? Thanks!

I managed to download Mesa 17.2.2 when it was active in the repository of
this project. A small patch fixes the build error. This version has a
problem with 3d ATI / AMD adapters and so the authors returned to 17.1.10
for android 7.1.2.

I see. Could you tell me which version or the date of your Android x86
source code is? What is the small patch fix that fixes the build error?

Thanks,

Philip

Thanks, fguy!
I checked my external/mesa repo and it included the Oct 5 merge fix by
Chih-wei. I didn't see anything about 17.2. Is the changeset removed?
Thanks,
Philip
