Windows / Re: Problem with Fullscreen and Resolutions
« on: February 19, 2019, 09:32:07 pm »
You could try running the game with these command line parameters:
Code: [Select]
    ufo.exe +set vid_width 3840 +set vid_height 2160 +set vid_mode -1 +set vid_fullscreen 1

It worked for me on a 2.5 which was compiled with SDL2. Hope it helps you too.

Note that most of our screens are designed to be 1024x768, they will be scaled up to the screen, but they will have empty space on the sides.


Those Lua warnings caused no issue, it was just backend code trying to update an inactive UI. I patched them.

Can I provoke attacking of a base by aliens? :D

You kinda can, however aliens will only desert your base not completely destroy. So that's not a way to relocate it either.

How do I remove  / depart a base?

It is planned, but not yet possible.


Feature Requests / Re: Geoscape labels and hiding alien transports
« on: February 05, 2019, 11:13:19 pm »
Agreed. I plan to add support for custom markers when re-implementing the geoscape rendering.


My appologies - i just discovered, that option to get email notifications about replies is hidden by expander bellow. Usually i manually polled pages to see when reply appears, but it is somewhat encumbering.

This year i made manual compilation in sources in my dedicated dir at home - problem doesn't appear. I'm trying to understand, what caused it that time - my guessment is that script caused too high load for server.

ufo2map target is the map compiler only, not the maps themselves so my guess, that there was some pebkac. Although after a year, I guess it doesn't matter.

Is there somewhere a guide on what exactly do we need to research to keep aliens alive?

If you mean wiki documentations, then the answer is no. Follow the in game story!

Study a dead alien body first. Then you get the Alien breathing apparatus research topic.


Feature Requests / Re: Arrange soldiers by skills highest to lowest

A feature request ticket on the bugtracker. Forum is not a proper place to manage requests, that's why we use issue trackers. ;)


Bugs in stable version (2.5) / Re: video settings not persistent

We prefer using our bug tracker for investigating issues like this.

I just checked, these values are saved for me properly. Could you please upload your config.cfg and ufoconsole.log?

My guess is that these options were auto-disabled/reduced on startup due to the known problems with Intel GMAs: some of them are happy to report capabilities they don't have, or support them poorly/incorrectly. If this is the case setting r_intel_hack console variable to 0 could help.

A request like this was commented into Feature Request #3779, but I believe it worth its own ticket, would you mind creating one?


Discussion / Re: Save Games
« on: December 02, 2018, 10:15:33 am »
I'm not quite sure how save games work - I click on a spare slot and it opens it up for entering text, but there's no button to commit the save.
And what does "upload" mean?

Type in the savegame name and press Enter, it will save the game.

The upload button was a side feature with which you could upload your savegame to our server and download to another machine if you wanted. It was underutilized and misleading, so we may remove that in the future.

2.6 will come with a re-designed UI where this interface is much cleaner.


Discussion / Re: Alerts and game pause
« on: December 02, 2018, 10:12:27 am »
The game pauses whenever various things happen, like production completion, transferred equipment arrives, etc.... but I can't see what event has occurred to cause the pause. The game just pauses and I have to click around everywhere to figure out what just happened.
How can I get alerts to tell me exactly why the pause has happened?

Reading the last few lines of event log on the top of the geoscape screen should tell it imho.


Windows / Re: Corrupt XML Data
« on: November 04, 2018, 03:07:57 pm »

I Fixed your savegame:

The issue was that two "Alien activity has been detected in %s." messages got invalid nation name substituted - a single 0xe8 character which broke the UTF string parser.

I don't quite see how could it happen, the code seem to be sane... :/


Linux / Re: gtksourceview2 is unmaintained, port to gtksourceview3?
« on: October 21, 2018, 10:59:25 pm »
was there any progress with porting Radiant to GTKSourceView3 or even GTKSourceView4? The moment of truth has arrived and our Gnome team wants to remove GTKSourceView2 which has seen its last release in 2010.

Hi! Porting to newer GTK stuck as it need a OpenGL upgrade as well. However I bundled the necessary GtkSourceview2 files into our code base, so you don't need a package for it. This change might yet only be in master - which is not quite ready for release unfortunately. So I need to backport the change top the 2.5 branch.

Alternatively I could probably delay the removal by taking over maintainership of GtkSourceView2 but then in two years it really has to go.

Thank You! Let's hope I can steal some time from RL to do the necessary changes for a 2.5.1 build that contains gtksourceview so you don't have to take extra work on you.

libpng in Debian is pretty much up-to-date (current upstream version is 1.6.35 and Debian has 1.6.34)

Hmm, reading back my question - and based on the version numbers I mentioned -, I believe I meant to ask about libjpeg, sorry. :)


Linux / Re: missing pk3 files linux mint
« on: June 22, 2018, 12:27:55 am »

Sorry, but I don't know the Mint distribution too much and you did not  reveal too much detail. What do you mean by "UFO directory"?
If you can play the game, you have the pk3 packages or their contents.

If you installed the Debian package, I believe the data is installed under /usr/share/games/.
