    I got a compile error on Galaxy S.

    This shader works fine on Tegra2, Adreno200,205,220,Mali-400M.

    Why doesn’t it work on PowerVR SGX540?

    However, I removed this line:

           #define USE_HWSKINNING 1

    It works fine on Galaxy S.

    This shader works on Galaxy NEXUS.

    However it doesn’t work on Galaxy S, EPSON MOVERIO, FUJITSU ARROWS X.

    Why does the compile error happen?

    How should I fix it?





    Just to let you know that we are currently investigating this issue and we’ll keep you updated if we find anything out.



    Hi, Arron.

    Thank you for your quick reply.

    I send all source code to you if you need.

    This is an open source product.




    Hi chototsu.

    If you could send the source that would be great. Please send a zipped package to



    Hi chototsu.

    We may have found the problem. It seems that the statement “precision mediump float;” is being prepended to your vertex shader. This seems to have some issues on the Galaxy S & Nexus S.

    Although your vertex shader doesn’t actually contain this declaration, it seems as though your shader loading code is adding the line and causing the issue.

    If you can track this down and perhaps retest the application with this line removed it may work.




    Hi, Arron.

    > your shader loading code is adding the line

    Sorry, I forgot it.

    I changed my renderer code and build my app.

    (However, I don’t yet test it because I don’t have Galaxy S.)

    Thank you very much.

            if (source.getType().equals(ShaderType.Vertex)

                   && GLES20.glGetString(GLES20.GL_RENDERER).indexOf(“PowerVR”)>=0) {




                        + source.getSource());

            } else {



                        “precision mediump float;n”

                        + source.getDefines()

                        + source.getSource());




    Hi chototsu,

    This no longer fails to compile so that problem is solved :).

    However, on our Galaxy S the application runs very, very slow – around 4-5fps. This appears to be due to very high CPU load.Arron2012-02-03 16:26:15



    Thank you for test my app.

    > However, on our Galaxy S the application runs very, very slow

    Which of release version or 112beta3 is faster?

    On my test machine(ASUS TF101 Tegra2), it’s same frame rate as release version.

    (Don’t select Megurine Luka models because it’s too heavy for Galaxy S.

    Please select Miku model.)




    Old version of my app runs around 25fps on Galaxy S.

    It uses GLSL skinning.

    It works fine.

    However, I updated to new version, it didn’t work on Galaxy S.

    I didn’t change my shader.

    I am confused very much.

    It runs around 25fps on Galaxy S if GLSL skinning works.




    Hi chototsu,

    I have downloaded your release app and can confirm that 112beta3 runs faster than the released version. I assume this is because you have now enabled HW skinning?

    I believe I was using the Miku model, but I cannot find a way to switch models.

    Regards.Arron2012-02-03 17:07:47



    Thank you for test.

    > I assume this is because you have now enabled HW skinning?

    Yes, 112beta3 uses GLSL skinning.

    However, I head that old version(uses GLSL skinning) runs around 25 fps on Galaxy S from users.

    My app runs around 40fps on TF101(Tegra2).

    4-5fps is too slow…

    I don’t understand the cause.

    > I believe I was using the Miku model, but I cannot find a way to switch models.

    Please push menu button.

    (Default model is Miku, you don’t need to change model.)




    Hi chototsu.

    I’m not really sure. I’ve profiled your app with our internal tools and can see that the GPU does very little work, while the CPU is fully loaded. There’s approximately a 200ms gap between a GPU calls.

    The app runs well (40-50fps+) on a Galaxy Nexus which is also an SGX540 although clocked higher, so I do not think that the issue is with the graphics hardware.

    Your other models vary with speed – some run around 17-20fps while as you say Megurine Luka runs very very slow.

    I’ll continue profiling your application next week and I’ll update this post if I find any more information which may be of use.

    Best regards.Arron2012-02-03 18:00:56



    > I do not think that the issue is with the graphics hardware.


    I investigate My app code.

    Thank you for your kindness.



    You’re welcome.

    One thing I have noticed is that you seem to call glGetError a lot (317 times per frame). This should be disabled in release code as that number of calls may affect performance.
