Re: Illegal instruction error (EvoRTS, AMD CPU, nouveau, Deb

It turns out my slide-show frame rates were due to using software rendering (Using the LLVM pipe). For xinerama (indirect rendering), nouveau is limited to GL version1.4. I repeated testing with xrandr: so that I could test hardware-accelarated direct rendering. I found that indirect rendering was "...

Re: Installation instructions are lacking

(On my card the game falls back to static images for decals (which I assume are model textures)). Got a screenshot, it sounds like your unit lod distance is too short No, I was going off the infolog.txt Warning: [Init] GPU does not support either ARB or GLSL shaders for shadow rendering (3D trees, ...

Re: Installation instructions are lacking

By the way, what is the minimum requirement for spring? Something that supports Open GLSL 2.0? Would that be a Geforce 9800 and up or similar? The recently replaced system requirements apparently copied form the spring wiki said 6000 series card. My Geforce 6200 does boast "Fulll Open GL 2.0 Optimi...

Re: Installation instructions are lacking

"edit 2," you kinda are.. if you have a 680 it is better than the 450.. just saying.. I get you point but all games say shit like that on the box and your quandary is not with evo but with Nvidia's numbering scheme. I guess that kind of makes sense: but they ran out of numbers and started counting ...

Re: Illegal instruction error (EvoRTS, AMD CPU, nouveau, Deb

I don't know where the people behind EvolutionRTS got their copy of weblobby, Really though, if you're restricting yourself with all these fences (using a P3, intentionally using an old video card, half a gig of ram, block javascript on any of the websites like evo, spring & steam, refusal to agree...

Re: Installation instructions are lacking

There are no binary dependencies supplied with EvoRTS. Are you talking about weblobby or spring? Splitting into two threads may have been a bad idea. The copy of weblobby avialable for download from the Goodle drive link fails with an "illegal instruction" error Stack trace . When I launch the (I t...

Re: Illegal instruction error (EvoRTS, AMD CPU, nouveau, Deb

You are all mostly missing my point: I agree the software is open source, but that does not help if it is arbirarily downloaded from random hosts whenever a new map asks for it . You can ask the government of Iran why "air gaps" don't always work. My goal setting up a "secure" workstation would be m...

Re: Installation instructions are lacking

I managed to get the spring developers's static binary to run a slide-show . Because the process used around 600MB, I recommend bumping the minimum system requirements to 1GB of RAM. If the binaries supplied with EvoRTS do indeed require a specific version of SSE, that should be noted as well (was i...

At the risk of giving the DM ideas, I am worried about losing money . A "toy" is not worth that much.

Re: Illegal instruction error (EvoRTS, AMD CPU, nouveau, Deb

Well, using the 32bit static binary linked here , I was able to run without throwing an "illegal instruction" error. It was a slide-show, the AI killed itself, and the minimap obscured the results screen: but it was able to run. The infolog.txt does not appear to be generated in the same place eithe...

Illegal instruction error (EvoRTS, AMD CPU, nouveau, Debian)

As described here I finally got EvolutionRTS installed. However the game aborts after the loading screen with an "Illegal Instruction" error. At least two people in that thread blamed the video drivers: because among other things, the Video RAM is listed as "unknown". I am not claiming that the nouv...

Re: Pissed off with springlobby always updated before reposi

Well, the user always has the option to compile stuff on their own, as you have mentioned. For things like servers, those policies are very pragmatic. I myself can sometimes take more than 6 months to configure my machines, so I actually like the slower release cycle.

Re: Pissed off with springlobby always updated before reposi

To avoid breakage, people are advised to avoid installing random static binaries from the Internet. Anyone with that attitude can & should learn to compile for themselves. One of the primary advantages of Debian is its central repository with thousands of software packages. If you're coming to Debi...

Re: Installation instructions are lacking

I updated this post with the infolog after a failed launch.

I am not sure if I should find a better forum section like Help & Bugs, or Linux.

I am using the Debian build, which is not exactly the same as the static build on the download page.

Re: Pissed off with springlobby always updated before reposi

aww also: 1) not a "springlobby" server, it's the spring server 2) it's up to the distribution spring packagers to update spring regularly, not the spring server maintainers 3) a linux static binary is in the process of being made, and it should alleviate most issues with versions This may be a pro...

Re: Installation instructions are lacking

If you follow the link in knorke's last post, you will see that it was fixed in the last two hours. It will fit on one screen now. The Terms are helpful in telling the user what to expect from the mods. They caution that everything is logged (to enable stuff like replays). While not necessarily lega...

Ooooh. Yes, that was with springlobby. I orginally just posted the TOS text on pastebin because I thought you disagreed with some part of it.

Re: Installation instructions are lacking

Aslo, if I want to play more than one spring engine game: all of that data files would be mixed together if I followed the above advice. It would mean all games were in the same directory, as were all maps, yes, if that's what you mean by "mixed". That is what the instructions say and that is what ...

Re: Installation instructions are lacking

As written, the terms apear to be repeated ~5 times. That is super weird and probably a bug someone should fix... I was unclear if this was caused by springlobby or lobby.springrts.com .
