2.3 graphical problems
« on: September 07, 2008, 04:51:03 pm »
Hi...I just installed UFO:AI 2.3 on Ubuntu 8.04, and when I run the game the screen (or window when windowed mode) keeps randomly "blinking" (not sure if it is the right word, my english isn't perfect) it just goes black for a moment, but it makes it impossible to play because I just can't look at that...I suppose that's cause of my videocard (ATI Radeon 9600, ATI X.Org drivers). I played 2.2 on same PC when I had Windows, and it was okay. I'm still kinda new to Linux (I had to use it after my winXP CD gone wrong), so please, no complicated solutions unless nescessary :)

2.3 selfcompiled?

have a look at your ufoconsole.log (~/.ufoai/2.3-dev/base)

ehh...I'm kinda still Linux noob :) so...I just found downloads here http://trylegaldownloads.de/ubuntu/hardy/nightly-builds/ , downloaded thosepacks and installed some of them (I think it was in this order. common > server data> data > ufoai 2.3) Then it seems to be working, just that bug...I remember having similar bug with Alien Arena that runs also at Q2 engine...never managed to fix it, so I just uninstalled it.

Hi all,
Great game!

Same problem for me, a little flickering, then it seems like some library crashes.
I've installed 2.2.1 from repository, 1024x768 no fullscreen. I run an Ubuntu 8.04 on Intel Mac Mini, with no desktop effects. In the first days I have experimented with the video options, but yesterday it was impossible to play the game. So I have reinstalled from repository, it was fine for some hours, then other flickering and video crash.
In that situation the system responds, but the screen is blank. with ctrl-alt backspace the graphical display doesn't recover. The only option is to login on console and halt the system.

No, the Mac Mini with Intel processor has an Intel GMA950 GPU with 64MB RAM.
Yet the game has decent graphical quality.

Well, it seems that the problem I reported it's not UFO related. The Xserver on Ubuntu Hardy freezes and flickers randomly on Imac Mini Intel, 'cause a lot of users reported same problems on the same platform. Bad news for me.  :'(
