Added: Cg support to the ES 2.x render system

I just committed Cg support for ES 2.x render system.

NVIDIA doesn't provide it's Cg parser source code (at least not a usable one), so a Cg to glsl converter is used to do the trick.
You can download it from: http://code.google.com/p/hlsl2glslfork/

I added a new CMake flag named "OGRE_CG_SUPPORT_FOR_GLES2" that is available if you have the ES 2.x render system.

The code needed for this support on the OGRE side is finished as far as I can tell.

[s]The converter doesn't do such a good job in many cases, I fixed some of them in this patch - there is still some work on it to get it to be prefect.[/s] - edit - they committed my changes.

Unity3D uses the same parser so it has the same or worse Cg support for ES 2.x.

All the code is committed to the trunk.

[s]I created a CMakeLists.txt for hlsl2glslfork, and submitted it as a patch:[/s] EDIT: Added to hlsl2glslfork source control.


hlsl2glslfork generates files with windows exes that come from the source control as part of the win32 visual studio build process, I assume that some OGRE users don't have access to windows, so I attached the files to this thread
MachineIndependent.zip
(51.68 KiB) Downloaded 402 times
the files path is: hlslang\MachineIndependent
EDIT: I tried to fix it in the CMakeLists.txt for LINUX and MAC - I will happy for feedback.

I also asked the source control owner to add the files to the source control.
EDIT: He didn't want to do it yet - he asked for a sample of platforms that the files are not created on when you run CMake

Hi, compiling at Linux I have the following problems with hlsl2glsltest.cpp :

Cant find OpenGL/OpenGL.h and <AGL/agl.h>, it seems that is trying to include files related with a Mac environment instead of Linux.

Greetings

Sorry, I don't have a linux test environment, you will have to try to solve this on your own.

Sorry to dredge an old thread but it seemed relevant. Is there any setup to build HLSL2GLSLfork for iOS? I just cloned the source from github and there only seems to be OSX support for Mac, I couldn't see any options in CMake scripts either.

I am using a pre-built version of this library but I don't know where it came from or who built it! Maybe someone's fork has iOS support already?

It was me who built it. I basically just took the OS X project and switched the SDK and targets. That's it!

That's what I was going to do myself, I had to do the same for MyGUI. So it should be OK.

I wish I knew CMake better, so I could do this in CMake and submit it - and then figure out how to integrate HLSL2GLSL into my OgreDeps setup. Is that what you've done, or like me do you have a mess of different libraries you have to build individually?

It would be really cool if hlsl2glsl and glsloptimiser could be supplied in the iOS dependencies download, I know they're a little of an edge case but they're not very big.

Hmm, actually it seems a bit more complex.

OSDependent/Mac has osinclude.h which tries to include <Carbon/carbon.h>

I'll see if I can skip this entire file, some of the stuff in there I have no idea what it's for :)

for iOS you just need to remove that include and instead include assert.h

Awesome, thanks.
