Yesterday i had one lockup, i don't know if it was caused by the ak swarm of a player (more than 200 ak).

I have the debug report, so if someone is interested, just ask for it and tell me how to send to you.

About the Balanced Annihilation Developers, I have written a nearly identical post in the specific subforum, but no answer at all.

I don't know how to reach them. :(

for the crash, please attach the infolog.txt as a file to your post, or use pastebin.com.

about BA:
It has no developers, only one maintainer and .. it is very unlikely that anyone is going to mess around with the Textures there (or with anything else that is not balancing).

ok, done.

However in the Debug report folder, i have some more files (client.txt, ext.txt, etc), do you need them?

Thanks

hmm :/
there is no stack trace in the infolog, which means.. we can not do anything really. if it happens again, you might have to get a debug build of spring, run it in gdb and try to reproduce, or alternatively test latest development version if it happens there too.
we do not need the other files.

This time it crashed in a different way.

You can see in the infolog, at the end, there is a lot of error entries.

Wait a second!

Entire cavedog texture atlas?

It would be nice if it was possible to fix from Spring, I noticed some good fps increase in other games.

I just tried my 5970 and I can confirm that the 10.5 driver has bad textures. 10.4 looks better. I did not test stability yet.

Yep, the problem is only with the 10.5 catalyst, I hope next driver version will correct it.

All other games work fine though.

I googled for "catalyst old drivers" and found:

Have a try...

I can confirm the bug with 10.6 on Gentoo Linux and 2.6.33-zen3 kernel. I also found the same texture map that FinDude saw on the Com on certain parts of a Mex - it can probably be found on all items...

I just tried 10.6. Nothing has changed. Same texture bugs as before.

All original TA models have texture problems. New models in XTA and NOTA look good.

I googled that the problem is that the graphics driver does not support texture compression used by old models.

Edit: The problem is that the ATI driver can't decompress .dds textures.

So instead of waiting forever for better drivers, maybe just change the Spring graphics code to use another rendering technique?

EDIT: The problematic compression is S3TC:

^Would that be difficult to do Spring Devs?

hmmm... not sure that's the problem, because I do get this with 10.4 too:

Code: Select all

daniel@maya ~ $ glewinfo | grep -i s3tc
GL_EXT_texture_compression_s3tc:                               OK 
GL_S3_s3tc:                                                    MISSING 
Will try with 10.6... back in a minute...
...
No change - I get the same output for above command with 10.4 and 10.6.

I posted this problem in the Phoronix forum discussing the release of 10.6 (http://www.phoronix.com/forums/showthre ... 96&page=13) and a AMD dev answered. I have the impression he wants to help, so if we can provide him with more info, that might bring us nearer to a solution.
