[GLLEGACY] Low-level native plugin example doesn’t work on OS X editor



The example of a low-level native plugin, which is available on the manual page, doesn’t run properly on the OS X editor.

The game view turns into empty during the play mode.

Note that it runs properly when built.

    I'm having this same problem on OS X. Game window is gray but the plugin works in the built application.

    The suggestion to use glPushAttrib didn't work for me; I tried the code in the post and nothing changed. Commenting out the glDisable (GL_BLEND) line also did not fix it.

    seems to be an issue with the opengl state that is being altered inside the native plugin example code. inside SetDefaultGraphicsState () the call to glDisable (GL_BLEND) causes the editor to stop rendering properly. you can comment the line out or push and pop the attrib state like this:

    SetDefaultGraphicsState ();
    DoRendering(worldMatrix, identityMatrix, projectionMatrix, verts);

    I'm on windows and am also experiencing this problem. d3d9, d3d11, and d3d12 all work fine, but when forcing opengl the plugin causes the editor to display as fully grey. Unlike the original poster, when I tried building there were still problems when forcing opengl.
