Hi all,

I'm currently running ROS Foxy with gazebo 11.8.1 in a VMware machine and I'm having some rendering issues. I have the virtual machine running with 3d hardware acceleration and I'm disabling OpenGL 4.1 with the following command:

export SVGA_VGPU10=0

as explained here or here

Everything is fine until there. The problem is that when I add an additional light to the world, most of the models become invisible.

The issue seems to be related to forcing OpenGL 2.1, because when I use OpenGL 4.1 there are no issues with the rendering (although, the VM freezes).

Does anyone know how to fix these issues? The rendering or the VM freezing?
