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...

From the log:
Quote
2019/04/09 10:08:32 Could not find locale with id ''
it seems it can't read the system's locale, and I assume it is not loading the translation files because of that, try running with
Code: [Select]
ufo.exe +set s_language en (or your preferred language code) and see if that helps

Gave the above a try (+set s_language en), but no change - still the empty frames.

What if you set the language in the console? <Shift>+<Esc> To open the console, then type set s_language en, <Esc> to close the console

Also could I see the new ufoconsole.log after trying to set the language manually (either from console or arguments)?  May shed some more light on what is happening.

Ok,
I tried loading set s_language en from the console, and that didn't change anything. 
Of note, I did some looking around, and in the config.cfg (attached- don't think there's anything personal in there besides my name) is a line reading 'set s_language "en" a'.
Attached is the console log from after I manually tried the set s_language en from console. 
Of note, there are a lot of "no translation for xxxx.txt" at the end of the log - don't know if that's significant or not...

Thank you for taking the time to look into this.  I had somewhat given up, which resulted in my delayed response.  Now I know you're working on it, I'll be paying much more attention.
