OpenGL 2.0 doesn't require any extension to be present. It needs to implement the core functionality, which may overlap with some extensions, but that doesn't mean that those extensions have to be supported to support OpenGL 2.0. Just check your GL version string. If it starts with "2.0", then you're set.

Yeah, it's OpenGL 2.0, thanks, i used OpenGLViewer to check the support, and i hadn't noticed OGL version string.

Humus. Do you know anything about when the EXT_framebuffer_object extension will be supported by ATI cards? Regards

Sorry but im a bit unclear here ...

the guy said that he has no support for double sided stencil and non power of two textures ...

Aint Opengl core supose to HAVE those APIs ? So if those are not there, regardless of what version strin says, he has no OpenGL 2 support.

It's supported through the GL2.0 API, but not through the GL_ARB_texture_non_power_of_two and GL_EXT_stencil_two_side extensions.

Too bad the only game I play ( NFSu2) has now a lot of texture corruptions :-(

Ok, perfect, given those unified driver models, if I have an older card which does not support a 2 sided stencil and non power of two texture for example, what GL version will report the driver ?
If driver reports gl2, if core GL 2 is exposed, but there are no name strings to figure out whatver the cared actually suporrts a double sided stencil, what is the way to figure it out ?

Also, what GLSL version is suported on ATI cards?
Do any ATI card alow vertex texturing ?
