Description Grigory (Playtika) 2015-04-30 07:25:30 UTC
If i first pass 3.0 and it fails (old device),  then if i pass 2.0 it will also fail.
But if i pass 2.0 from start - everything will be okay.

private bool CreateFrameBuffer(GLVersion version, GraphicsMode graphicsMode)
            bool res = false;
                ContextRenderingApi = version;
                GraphicsMode = graphicsMode;
                res = true;
            catch (Exception ex)
                Dev.Log.WriteLine("Failed to create frame buffer {0}", ex.Message);
            return res;
