Bugs in stable version (2.5) / Re: No Text when starting in Windows 10 THIRD POST

Not sure which previous post you are referring to. Some ideas on what could have gone wrong:

* Having multiple versions installed at a time is not supported.
 Files mixed from various versions can cause issues

* Intel GMA sometimes have weird graphics issues.
  Playing with settings, like texture compression may help, but there is no guarantee. Intel's OpenGL implementation was quite bad as I remember.

If neither of these helps you can check the ufoconsole.log for issues, pastebin it to ask some help - but, again we may or may not be able to help. We don't have your setup and not developing graphics card drivers..

So after looking at the forum here, it seems to be that this is pretty well dead. The contact info on the page is non-existent.

This is kinda a roll call to see which moderators, admins, coders, etc. are still on this project. I do request that if you don't mind, when announcing that you're here, please tell us where or how we can get into contact with you if we need or want to help.

Thank you, much appreciated for any response.

Also, I did try to run this program using compatibility for windows 7 and 8 as well, and tried using the different options for video changes to make sure it might have been a compatibility issue. Now, when I last played the game, it was on this computer where it didn't have this issue, and I did run it as well on a more newer computer. So yeah.

So, as the other two posts went unanswered with no clear fix so far, I will bring it up again to see if anyone here is alive and kicking.

Firstly, this bug is now no longer just with 2.5, as I went back to 2.4 with the same issue. Someone a few years ago botched the language pack it seems, as NONE of the language settings or fonts are showing up. I get the blocks and buttons, with no font/words. Just like in the previous two posts of the same issue.

Now, I know when I last played 2.4 that this was not a bug that was happening at the time. I have restarted the game, I have reloaded both versions, I have used command prompts in the game to force load english. None of these things have worked.

I would like to know why there isn't follow ups on the previous post after asking for the system info and files.
Time to make it clear - problem around intel driver is due to GPU hang, as kernel log says.
Exact reason is, of course, not clear - someone confirmed it to be hardware bug, reproducing it with windows 10 bootable usb.
It seems, different intel gpu (sandybridge, skylake, etc) may have different hardware bugs, and in my case it's sandybridge, which seems to be enough old.

There's common way, how this bug appears during gameplay:
1. I have a freeze for few seconds, with common situation, that there's smoke in field (though could be also possible due to fire).
2. If camera doesn't move since 1st moment - it's certain, freezes will repeat. 3 freezes are enough for me to crash with batchbuffer problem.
3. What's interesting, it never happens in first move, no matter how much smoke I span - I had 6 of total 8 men with smoke in pockets, each with at least 2 in pockets. Smoked almost area around dropship (in total - I used all TU to just smoke), then left PC without action for number of minutes - no freeze during this time. Freezes started only on next turn, when I got bored of that and began to move soldiers.

Somehow I missed this topic, but in september 2015 I opened a discussion about this on LibreGameWiki, which resulted in the game being listed on the site. :)
