Switch to opengl 3 as default

Reporter: fundies  |  Status: open  |  Last Modified: October 29, 2020, 03:57:31 AM

Switched to OpenGL 3 as default because:

a) OpenGL 1.1 is prehistoric and we should phase it out for the more compatible GLES2
b) Our OpenGL 1.1 system is calling OpenGL 3 functions in many places that would require further refactoring of an already dead system.

switching to opengles2 is a proper move. However i would still keep opengl1 as a fallback.....perhaps for debug/legacy purposes. As for me, I recently acquired a graphics card so it should be able to run opengles2........i would have to test it out to make sure.
