Graphics Problem

Post by snick » Thu Apr 21, 2011 5:41 pm

I was experimenting with recent SVN code and for some reason the side of
a tank wasn't rendering. That I can cope with (I normally aim at the turret).
But what's really off-putting is this thingummyjig (technical term) hanging
inside. In all my years of BZFlag, I never saw the hideous like of it:

What on earth could it be? Graphics driver bug, maybe?

Is that even the BZFlag client?

If anything, it looks like a modded client, so you should know what the heck it is.

Most certainly not a modded client!

Well it's an obvious fake, because what you see on the radar is in no relation to what you actually see on 3D.
Additionaly tanks dont have inside faces so you would see right through them from the inside.
