No Text when starting in Windows 10
« on: April 09, 2019, 04:33:07 pm »
Hi,
This is a repeat of #9157.0, but I got a pop-up saying it's over 120 days old and to consider a new post.  I downloaded 2.5 from Sourceforge (using the link found in the "Download Tab.)  I'm using a Dell Latitude 5590, Windows 10 Pro, and i5-825OU, 64-Bit (wondering if that might be the issue?), Intel UHD Graphics 620, Intel driver 24.20.100.6286.

I load the game, get the splash screen, the get the GUI with empty frames and no text, except for "UFO:  Alien Invasion" in the upper left corner (see attached screenshot).  I've tried reloading the game, loading to a different directory, no luck.  Hoping to get this resolved before I get underway.  Thanks for you help.

I'd try enabling texture compression, lowering video settings. If I'm right it has something to do with Intel GMA...

I apparently already had texture compression enabled, but cycled without any luck - it's difficult to tell without any text (I'm using a good install on another laptop to figure out what the selection boxes are.)  I apparently lowered the resolution - now everything is big (mouse pointer is huge).  Unfortunately, whenever I click anywhere, the game window is minimized...

As a test I tried loading ver 2.6 and ended up with the same issue - frames with no text in them.  A lot more frames, mind you, but since there's no text I don't know what they're for...
