Centurio (6/14)



  1. The water shader code has gotten a little bit too artsy to debug easily, so I can't readily point to where the problem might be. Maybe wraitii has an idea... alpha123 and serveurix, does it make any difference when you turn on/off reflections, refractions and so on?

    GLSL Errors

    2.1 or above. You have 4.3, so you're fine.
  3. preferglsl=false + gentangents=true is a bad combination...
  4. It looks like Intel's drivers for the GMA 3600 are so buggy that nothing works on them. Do any other recent 3d games work on your netbook? Besides, on underpowered hardware like the GMAs, even if the game did run it would probably be far too slow to play (the game should run fine on netbooks with Intel HD graphics cards and above).
  5. wxNavigationEnabled was added in version 2.9, according to the docs. A quick search shows that these errors can be caused by an incompatibility between wxWidgets and Xcode's Clang toolchain. Their suggested workaround is to use a different toolchain, such as llvm-gcc. Not a mac user, so that's all I got.

    Shadow glitch

    Intended behaviour, unfortunately. The engine stretches the visible objects so they fill as much of the shadowmap as possible (to get better quality shadows), but doesn't account for terrain while doing so. The result is that shadows from terrain aren't rendered unless that terrain falls within the bounding box of objects on screen. By moving that building around, you're forcing the bounding box to be expanded, so part of a cliff falls inside that bounding box. It's easy to reproduce in Atlas. Make an empty map, set the sun elevation to a low value and create a tall mountain. No terrain shadows will appear. Then pick an object and place it on the north-east side of the mountain. Create a second object and place it on the south-west side; move it around. You'll notice that only the parts of the terrain between the two objects will cast shadows. This is part of what causes the problem that Pureon mentioned (The other part is that the engine does the visibility culling in the simulation (not at all thread-friendly design, mind you), and it does it by eliminating everything that isn't visible from the main camera, thus the renderer doesn't know about things that may cast shadows/reflections once they go off screen).
  7. Since we have the same hardware, I guess it must have worked with fglrx. I think fabio had a similar problem with the same driver before... I'll test out a couple of ideas to fix it (hopefully before release) and maybe I could get some feedback from you, if it's okay.
  8. If the sqrt is being used to compute distance, it may be an acceptable approximation to get rid of it completely. There's a built-in profiler, accessible with F11 in-game. I never thought to check.. but please don't tell me it's running always, even in the Release builds!?
  9. Hmm. Have you made sure the versions of your kernel and Xserver are as in the link above? kernel <= 3.2 and Xserver <= 1.11
  10. There's a "legacy" version of 12.6, is this the one you installed?
  11. I haven't. If you want to keep fglrx, I suggest checking if your distro has an LTS release. I have Kubuntu 12.04, which is based off of kernel v3.2 and is supported until 2017 (this laptop will be gone long before that!).
  12. I have the same GPU on my laptop. I'm afraid AMD dropped support for the HD 4670 in the latest Linux fglrx drivers, so we need to use versions <=12.6.
  13. And video games are classified as art in Germany, so I'd say it's almost certainly legal to use Swastikas in games, even Nazi Swastikas. I say keep it. If anyone is silly enough to feel offended by an ancient symbol being used in a historically-correct way, this is an open source game and they should feel free to mod/fork/rewrite history.
