GLSL Shaders in iOS

Post by Veda »

Hi, I just noticed that GLSL Shaders is now available in some Daily Builds. Very nice!

I just tried the latest iPhone build but I couldn't find the shaders... Are there some technical limitations in supporting GLSL shaders in iOS builds?

Or it is just a matter of waiting for the official 2.7.0 release?

Thanks in advance!

Hi,

Our iOS backend is indeed not supporting shaders currently. It uses a different graphics rendering code as ScummVM on other platforms, and I don't think anybody has looked at adding shaders support for it. I don't not know if there are technical limitations or not. But there are practical limitations (finding a developer with the motivation and time to look at this).

So unfortunately the official 2.7.0 iOS release is also very unlikely to have shaders support.
