Login Action Required

The NinevehGL Forum uses a new concept of "socialized forum" or as we like to say "Tweet Forum".

Here is the deal:
  1. No new registration is required. Just sign in with your Twitter account and authorize the NinevehGL Forum.
  2. Once you’re in, you'll be able to "Follow a Thread", that means every time that thread receive a new post or update you'll receive a mention on your twitter.
  3. Besides, you can enable "Auto Share", then every new post and/or thread you make will be tweeted on your timeline. (By default, auto-share is enabled only for your threads)

Forum Rules:

1. We understand human comunication can become "hot" sometimes. So some insults and bad words ARE allowed. Just don't push too much being an asshole all the time.

2. SPAMMERS are not allowed. There are penalties for this kind of user and they can be banned forever.

3. You can report other users, if you judge necessary. An user reported many times by many people can also be banned forever. However you can also receive penalties for report deliberately for no apparent reason.

If there is a similar thread title, make sure the other one doesn't already have the answer you're looking for.

This forum uses the BBCode (Bulletin Board Code), here are some instructions:

Italic: [i]text[/i]
Underline: [u]text[/u]

Code: [code]text[/code]

Hi, I'm trying to set an image as background for my NGLView exactly as explained in this thread http://nineveh.gl/community/forum/problem_with_adding_subview, but even when I set the NGLView background color to [UIColor clearcolor], theres still a blackcolor in the background.
Is there anything special I have to do?

Thanks for your help!

I search for the FAQ section, where they explain that you have to change global parameters, so I did it in may AppDelegate

- (BOOL)application:(UIApplication *)application didFinishLaunchingWithOptions:(NSDictionary *)launchOptions
// Override point for customization after application launch.


return YES;

and then I set the background color of my UIVIew to rgba(0, 0, 0, 1)
That made the trick!

Then I just use a background UIImageView and done!
Hope this help some one else.

Yes, you did the trick.

You can't assign an image directly to the NGLView background because this view implements a different kind of CALayer, which does not support exactly the same treatment as UIViews.
