Question about strange screen filter
« on: October 19, 2015, 11:32:12 am »
Hi, I`v decided to try out 2.6dev version after been fan of ufoai for a long time
First thing i noticed is a huge redesign in ui, not in a goog way, but its WIP so i`m ok with that
Second - ugly dust pattern all over the screen, I`m actually not shure is it a bug or intended
the only screen free from this noise is geoscape
Is it a bug of some sort? is there a way to disable this filter?

Second unrelated question - how to switch to 2d geoscape?

The fuzzy overlay is by design. You can remove it by replacing /base/pics/ui/screen.png with an empty one.

To switch to 2D Geoscape, open the Options menu in campaign, select <Options> and disable the 3D Geoscape checkbutton under <General> - Geoscape Options.

at 1st: sorry for pushing such an old topic again, especially a solved one.

well, i tried to apply that solution and found: nothing. i wanted to remove the fuzzy overlay (which shipit says is by design). only thing is that at the described place there was no screen.png, actually there was nothing in /base/ except
/i18n/
/maps/
game.dll
some .pk3 files

as i havent played ufoai for >1year now i tried to solve that for the 1st time.

has the file been moved? is it implemented in another way now? can it still be removed? how?

best regards


EDIT:
ahhhh... searched for something to unpack the pk3s and found the solution. thx anyway

Good to hear you solved, otherwise the simple way is to create the missing pics and ui folders and place the clear screen.png within.

Looks to a frequent request so imho would worth a checkbox in the settings screen which could remove the dust.

+1. This would be a nice idea to add a checkbox in options to use or to remove the fuzzy overlay.

It is on my list for the LUAfication.

Actually I'm thinking about a poll about keep/drop/configurable choices....
