Game ends when attempting to change resolution in battle.
« on: October 29, 2009, 08:28:50 am »
  Version

    * Where did you download the version of the game and what version(-number) is it. Please be as verbose as possible here.
"version" is "UFO: Alien Invasion 2.3-dev x86 Oct 23 2009 Win32 DEBUG"
Updated via svn as requested.

    * SVN users please state the branch of the svn tree you use (e.g. "trunk" or one of the version-branches) and the revision number. You can get both by using the "svn info" command.
svn info -
'svn' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.

System

    * What operating system do you run UFO:AI on?
Version   5.1.2600 Service Pack 3 Build 2600

    * What computer and graphics card do you have? (graphic driver version if you know)
Name   Radeon X1600/X1650 Series
Driver Version   6.14.10.6925

    * What architecture does your system use (e.g. like i386, x86_64)
Processor   x86 Family 15 Model 55 Stepping 2 AuthenticAMD ~2205 Mhz

This is especially useful for everything from graphics bugs, setup problems, performance issues, os dependent errors, etc...
What happened before the bug occurred? Is the bug reproducible?
Game behaves normally, until you attempt to change resolution during a battle. I was running windowed mode at the times. 4 tests via new games and loads indicates it happens every time.
When you attempt to change resolutions, the resolution changes successfully, and it asks if you want to keep the new setting. Your mouse disappears while on the application, so you can't click accept properly. If you click anywhere, the game ends, and returns to the menu to let you start or laod a new game.

The bug itself is often just a symptom of things that happened right before (or often even a long time ago).

Some things to check:

    * The first thing we ask you is to check if you can reproduce the bug. The simpler the reproduction-steps are, the better.
Start new game, get terror mission, send firebird. Enter. Attempt to change resolution. Done.

    * Does the bug also happen when starting a new game or only after loading a saved game (most likely a bug in the load/save system)
Both. You can start a new game or load a saved game.

    * Please attach the output console file ufoconsole.log. If possible when running the game with ufo +set developer 1 (see cvar for more).
Attached as requested.

1. Please don't quote the instructions. It's a pain to uncover the valuable information. Instructions written to guide you, we know that article quite well.
2. 'svn info': Uh, that hurt. You use windows and a GUI svn client and you don't have the CLI svn binary. You should have figured out that for you 'svn info' function is somewhere in the SVN Client's (TortoiseSVN?) menu. It shows like:

Code: [Select]
$ svn info
Path: .
URL: https://ufoai.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/ufoai/ufoai/trunk
Repository Root: https://ufoai.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/ufoai
Repository UUID: 39b98707-f80d-0410-bc7e-c6b02f5409da
Revision: 26820
Node Kind: directory
Schedule: normal
Last Changed Author: bayo-fr
Last Changed Rev: 26820
Last Changed Date: 2009-10-28 22:00:23 +0100 (sze, 28 okt 2009)


The problem is known it's nothing about battlescape but if the renderer restarted the campaign closed.

You can found this Command in TortoiseSVN Version 1.5.2 or higher.

I'm running 1.6.5 since I decided to upgrade recently.

If there is one, it is well hidden.

I'm thinking it might be "Revision Graph", but when I use that, it starts listing a whole bunch of revision numbers that are descending, and it says 9 minutes remaining. At this time, my internet indicates I'm uploading about 6-7k/sec of data, and downloading about .5 megs of data a second. In a few seconds I'm missing a couple megs, and I panic. My math shows .5*60*9=270 megs of data downloaded alone, which is a bit much I think, for whatever it's trying to do.

In short, I've never let the revision graph complete, but I'm guessing that's what does it...

On the Windows console :-)  Sorry, my last post was wrong.
Open a command Window, go to the project an type 'svn info'. Or you can type 'svn info %projectfile%'.
It's not a Tortoise command. svn is a part of c::b. If you want to use Tortoise, you can found the same information: open an explorer, rightclick on any project file, click on 'properties' and then click the tab 'Subversion'.
