Compilation problem

Post by Uma »

Hi,

I'm compiling a application and it contains following line, which throws an error. I use ogre 1.8.

Code: Select all

Ogre::Root *root = new Ogre::Root();
Ogre::RenderSystemList *rsList = root::getSingleton().getAvailableRenderers();
The error is as follows:
Error C2440: 'initializing' : cannot convert from 'const Ogre::RenderSystemList' to 'Ogre::RenderSystemList *'

Look closely at the error report: getAvailableRenderers() returns a const reference, not a pointer...

Thanks for your help, I edited my code as follows:

Code: Select all

const Ogre::RenderSystemList *rsList = Ogre::Root::getSingleton().getAvailableRenderers();
And,

Code: Select all

const Ogre::RenderSystemList& rsList = Ogre::Root::getSingleton().getAvailableRenderers();
Second one is work(first one gets same error), but I have other code beyond like this:

Code: Select all

Ogre::RenderSystem *selectedRenderSystem = NULL;
  bool foundit = false;
  for( int c = 0; c<(int)rsList->size(); c++ )
  {
    selectedRenderSystem = rsList->at(c);
    Ogre::String rname = selectedRenderSystem->getName();
    if(rname.compare("Direct3D9 Rendering SubSystem")==0)
    {
      foundit=true;
      break;
    }
  }
So it throws error:
Error C2232: '->std::vector<_Ty,_Ax>::at' : left operand has 'class' type, use '.'


Am I miss something?

It works, Thanks for your help.

Now I got these errors in my application:
Error LNK1120: 1 unresolved externals
Error LNK2019: unresolved external symbol _WinMain@16 referenced in function ___tmainCRTStartup
Anyone knows how to solve this..........

Maybe you have a main instead of a WinMain. Maybe you meant to make a console project (which uses main as an entry point), but made a windows project (which uses WinMain). Or maybe you just have no main of any kind.

Yes, I got it.
But in the WinMain, app.go(); throws an error.
Error C2039: 'go' : is not a member of 'VideoSettings'

We can't know what is app we don't have your code. Check it's type interface, you are certainly calling something that isn't there.

Klaim is right, the error is telling you VideoSettings::go does not exist. Maybe you are using the tutorial framework, but you haven't defined VideoSettings to inherit from BaseApplication? Like so:

Code: Select all

class MyTutorialFrameworkApp : public BaseApplication
In that example, MyTutorialFrameworkApp inherits BaseApplication::go

I started getting compilation errors and I am not sure what is causing them. The error messages don't give me much info and I don't know even where to start trouble shooting. I did change if I accidentally change the engine code and I didn't.

Here are the first few lines of error messages in the hope that someone will recognize the problem:

Code:

You are compiling unreal engine 4 code and asking for help from Ogre community? Unreal has their own community for this.
