Cannot initialise - no render system has been selected

Post by 4z3rty » Thu Apr 17, 2014 7:56 am

Hi,

I'm on Archlinux and I have succeeded to compile my first Ogre project.
But when I'm want to execute it I have this error :

Code: Select all

OGRE EXCEPTION(1:InvalidStateException): Cannot initialise - no render system has been selected. in Root::initialise at /build/ogre/src/ogre/OgreMain/src/OgreRoot.cpp (line 650)
I searched on the internet and I found that is a problem with the ogre.cfg or plugins.cfg but I can't fix it...

Here are my files :
ogre.cfg

Code: Select all

Render System=Direct3D11 Rendering Subsystem
plugins.cfg

Code: Select all

# Defines plugins to load

# Define plugin folder

PluginFolder=/usr/lib/OGRE
Plugin=RenderSystem_GL

# Define plugins
#Plugin=RenderSystem_Direct3D7
#Plugin=RenderSystem_Direct3D9
Plugin=RenderSystem_GL
Plugin=Plugin_ParticleFX
Plugin=Plugin_BSPSceneManager
Plugin=Plugin_OctreeSceneManager
Plugin=Plugin_CgProgramManager
Thank

Are you showing the config screen in your program? if so just pick open gl.

Or change the ogre.cfg to use open gl but I am afraid I can't remember the exact text off the top of my head try "OpenGL Rendering Subsystem'.

I changed my ogre.cfg by :

Code: Select all

Render System=OpenGL Rendering Subsystem

[OpenGL Rendering Subsystem]
Display Frequency=50 MHz
FSAA=0
Full Screen=No
RTT Preferred Mode=FBO
VSync=No
Video Mode= 800 x  600
sRGB Gamma Conversion=No
And for more information, here is my Ogre.log

12:42:26: Installing plugin: GL RenderSystem

Looks like it should be "GL RenderSystem"

No, 'OpenGL Rendering Subsystem' is correct.

Since you are on Linux, you must use GL or GL3+. DirectX is a proprietary M$ API.

Try moving your ogre.cfg to a backup file and generating a new one from scratch using the config dialog. This will ensure there are no hidden characters causing trouble.

Also, be sure you are editing the correct ogre.cfg - there is one in ~/.ogre/Ghadamon/ogre.cfg, but you likely have a separate one for your project. A good test is to run the SampleBrowser, which will use the config in ~/.ogre/... and see if that works.
