I'm trying to obtain information about the GPU that is running the game in order to use the correct texture compression for that GPU:

std::string GPUInfo::getTC()
    std::string TC;
        TC = ".pvr.ccz";
    else if(cocos2d::Configuration::getInstance()->supportsATITC())
        TC = ".dds";
        TC = ".png";
    CCLOG("Texture compression format -> %s", TC.c_str());
    return TC;

But this keeps causing this error:

call to OpenGL ES API with no current context (logged once per thread)

Is there another way to obtain details about supporting GPU features on the current device?

    \$\begingroup\$ It sounds like you're calling without a context ;) Have you initialized an OpenGL ES context, are you running in the thread that initialized it? \$\endgroup\$ – MickLH Dec 17 '14 at 3:39

If you take a look at your AppDelegate::applicationFinishedLaunching function, it begins with these lines of code:

auto director = Director::getInstance();
auto glview = director->getOpenGLView();
if(!glview) {
    glview = GLView::create("My Game");

You should check for supported compression after those lines are executed.
