Some Texturing Settings problems

Post by Gordo »

This problem occured after I upgraded from version 2.0.8 to 2.0.10.

When selected a "texturing setting", all settings up to Nearest Midmap Nearest work with no graphics problems, as seen here.:

However, setting it at any setting above Nearest Midmap Nearest (Linear Midmap Nearest, Linear Midmap Linear, Nearest Midmap Linear) results in graphic problems as seen here:

Oddly enough, the problem seems to go away after setting to the affected three setting and then minimizing and maximizing BZFlag:

Also, it remains not glitchy if the setting is not changed and BZFlag is closed then reopened. Only when switching to a setting other then those three does it return to glitchiness.

My hardware is as follows:

AMD Athlon XP 2100+ 1.73 gHz
ATi Radeon 9000 Series (possibly a "PRO" version; not sure)
512 MB of RAM
Samsung Syncmaster 960BF Monitor set at 1280/1024, 32 bit colour and 60 Hz screen rate.

Any ideas?

Do you have the latest drivers for your video card?

What exactly is the problem? What you are describing seems normal.

Sounds just like a buggy driver. Solution? Don't change the setting. :)

Tried downloading and reinstalling, no effect. I'm starting to think it is the graphics card.

I did at the time. Coincedently shortly thereafter, I downgraded to an earlier driver. Still no change.

Simply put, the graphics mess up when switching settings about nearest midmap nearest, unless I minimize.

Lol. Yeah, I've been doing that up till now., I have a feeling I'll just have to minimize and then leave it on the setting permanantly.
