Graphics Problem - Can't see anything in Missions
« on: June 09, 2006, 02:03:18 am »
Hi there. I hope you can help me out here:

When I start a mission, my screen remains black and I can't see anything, except the cursor. Furthermore, obviously the screen seems to be incorrectly centered, as I can see part of the cursor vanish about an inch from the left side of the screen.
I had no problems in the menues or the world and base screens.

I'm running Win2K on an Athlon 2800 Box with a NVidia 6800 graphics card with the latest drivers and DirectX installed.

which version do you use?
one from svn or one with an installer?
did you compile the maps?

Sorry, was away over the weekend. I use a version with an installer. The Version Number shown in the menue screen is 0.12.
And no I didn't complie the maps, they are already present as .bsp files in the maps folder from installation.

Edit:

I think I found it. Seems to be the same bug as reported here:

I'm  too. (since TD2 beta1)
and i saw the ufoconsole.log.
it always ends with this.

==== InitGame ====
------- Server Initialization -------

ERROR: Couldn't load maps/villaged/vil_r01.bsp
********************
==== ShutdownGame ====


(note: "Couldn't load" filename were changes in each occasion.)

and i test geforce 6800 ultra and Radeon 340M IGP with some driver version.
This happens by the both, so graphics card is not related.

I using WindowsXP Home SP2 and latest SVN build and data.

Arkblade, try this link:
http://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=1459603&group_id=157793&atid=805242

Look at the bug description. Try a new game, and buy only the most neccessary stuff. Worked for me, although a Plasma and a Laser rifle where missing in the mission and I still haven't figured out if I just didn't find out how to switch to secondary weapons or they too are missing.
