GEF3D List of Graphics Card
GEF3D requires at least OpenGL 1.5. For performance reasons, GEF3D uses some OpenGL features which are not part of OpenGL 1.5:
- NPOT textures (NPOT: non-power of two, see OpenGL Wiki NPOT article) and
- FBOs (Framebuffer Objects) (see Wikipedia FBO article)
If you got an error message opening one of our examples which starts with
<code>java.lang.IllegalStateException: Function is not supported at org.lwjgl.BufferChecks.checkFunctionAddress (BufferChecks.java:69) at org.lwjgl.opengl.EXTFramebufferObject.glGenFramebuffersEXT (EXTFramebufferObject.java:187) at de.feu.draw3d.texture.Texture.createFbo(Texture.java:157) ...</code>
you'll probably have to update your OpenGL driver (or your graphics card). You may want to look at the [OpenGL wiki articles on hardware specifics] (with special pages for NVidia, ATI, and Intel graphics).
List of Tested Graphics Cards
The following graphics cards (and virtual machines) were successfully tested. You may have to update your driver in order to make your card work. If your card is working but not listed here, please write a post to GEF3D's newsgroup.
- GEF3D revision is only a hint and does not necessarily indicate other reversions to work or not work. The revision is the revision number of the SVN repository

The following cards are not working (as far as we know), mainly because they do not suport FBOs. In elder versions of GEF3D, we tried to support cards without FBO, but this is too much work for us and almost all newer cards do support FBOs.
