Here is a debug version with much more logging, and the chances of catching that error in the right place is high:
http://fbcraft.fwsnet.net/testclient.exe

note that i think theres something i require that you dont support, but we'll see
worst-case is that it complains about texture2d arrays, but you have said it worked before, so let's give it a fair shot

And tested the old version (13.11.2011) which works fine, just to check that something didn't screw up with my PC in the meantime.

Testclient log from the old version:

if your last version was from one year ago, then it's no wonder it doesn't work now
i checked the specs for geforce 8600, and it says explicitly that it does support texture2d arrays, so your drivers MUST be out of date :)
probably very old even

http://uk.download.nvidia.com/Windows/3 ... l-whql.exe
your gfx card is even supported in the latest drivers

as for the "lockup", yes, i found that problem.. it was a print & sleep for the renderbuffer which failed for unknown reasons
im thinking its because your drivers dont like mipmapped non-po2 textures
but we'll see :)

as long as you still get the texture2d array issues, starting the client is a no-go, and it's what the driver reports.. nothing i can do about it in the code :)

That looks amazing Dudes!!!

I wondered if you'd read about this article Brave Article it about a demo scener called IQ, and how he took an oldskool approach to creating some of the visuals.

Cubes Rock!!

Now it just closes:

Code: Select all

09-16-2012 22:35:20:: Generating GL textures...
09-16-2012 22:35:21:: Materials texture2d array error: 1281
09-16-2012 22:35:21:: Items texture2d array error: 1281
09-16-2012 22:35:21:: Players texture2d array error: 1281
09-16-2012 22:35:21:: Actors texture2d array error: 1281
09-16-2012 22:35:22:: ERROR: renderbuffer 1281


Maybe something is screwed up with my PC, although this time I downloaded the right drivers directly from NVIDIA webpage (306.23).

Guess this will have to wait for me until I get a new PC.

i suspect that maybe your card only supports 511 array layers, but who knows
i have updated the update site with new texture maps that are 384 tiles... back in the day it used to be 256
so we'll see if that fixes it
another thing you can try is disable anisotropic filtering

and finally, you will need to use this to catch the errors:
http://fbcraft.fwsnet.net/testclient.exe

alot more errors are caught this time.. i am surprised that renderbuffer would give an error

Downloaded the new testclient. Didn't run the launcher. Worked now! Weee! This games looks much better since the last time. :)

but i didnt change anything, except GL_RGBA to GL_RGBA8... :S
strange
but, glad it works.. :)

and this is from the specification of opengl:
GL_RGBA = any RGBA format that the drivers likes...
GL_RGBA8 = i specifically ask for a 8-bits per channel format

don't ask me..

also you can connect to server with /server (enter = open chat)

Heh this is how far my computer got when trying to run testclient.exe

Code: Select all

Don't you support 8 year old laptops with onboard gfx cards! =)

The screenshots looks great btw =) At least my computer can manage to display them properly ;)

hehe, no that will not be possible
i am trying to use modern opengl (at least 3.x and above) so that i won't be held back if i want to make something
if it was anything 2D, i would go for 2.1 support and then most intel integrated chips would be supported

then again, if you suddenly find yourself with a new computer, you can live here:

will take a while now until any new build even for internal testing is working, since new networking is finally in progress
until then, a few screens:

and a little shout-out to my testers who put up with constant updates and fresh worlds:

Gonzo, remember that I was tester? Well, I can get to log in anymore. Can you help me? Please contact me at ra-ve00-2 [at] o-2.pl (remove dashes and change [at], to you know what. It's anti-spambot precaution).
