Hi fellow wiki editors!

To help newly registered users get more familiar with the wiki (and maybe older users too) there is now a {{Welcome to the wiki}} template. Have a look at it and feel free to add it to new users discussion pages (and perhaps your own).

I have tried to keep the template short, but meaningful. /Johan G

{{Note|if4dnf: it's usually bad practice to do any kind of operations on gl_FragColor assignment. At most a vec4() swizzle is ''accepted'', although even that one is treated differently based on the platform (some assign a temporary variable, some don't). Do wahtever you need in a separate vec4 variable and just assign it's value to gl_FragColor at the end.}}
{{Note|If the fragment isn't running, there should be an error message in the log file (I wish they'd still be written to the console). Might be that the texture isn't defined in the supporting framework for instance - the shader assumed that it is available, but you need to declare it in the matching C++ code/effect file first.}}
