I have a question regarding hardware support.
There are a couple of extensions I’m curious about trying. one is Paletted_Textures, the other one is texture compression.
My questions is this, When you query for an extension and it returns back as valid/usable does this mean the card supports it in hardware? Are the drivers responsble for returning back that information?
I guess this is even a more general questions, when you query for pixel format, extensions etc. are you querying what your card supports, or opengl in general (e.g. 1.1 etc)
