#115: how do you make water look as in screens

Make you sure you have a recent video card (one that supports shaders or something like that). GeForce FX (5200, 5500, ...) or newer works. I don't know about ATI.

Make you sure you are in 24 or 32 bpp color mode (since 16 bit is currently broken).

Then, type "/waterreflect 1" and "/waterrefract 1" (even thought I think this is the default).

If you can't make water look like that, then your video card does not support that, or your video drivers are outdated.

ATI is very odd in Sauerbraten.. I've got a PC with a 9600XT, and it gets all sorts of anomalies with bumpmaps and the new water.

Performance is sketchy too.

As long as the GPU supports shader model 2.0, it should be able to show the new water. ATI is strange again with that, alot of shader model 2.0 cards that are ATI display things strangely or not at all.

Everyone know nVidia is the best :p

And i know the ATI drivers are not very good... they can crash :p (it happend in my previous PC :x)

Well if you've got ATI, at least use the Omega Drivers. Theyre far better than the standard Catalyst ones.

by sinsky on 10/09/2006 02:33, refers to #119

I tried the Omega drivers, they increase my frags effectively since I always play with shaders and they're optimized for Radeon (9550 here). With the standard Catalyst drivers I get high quality shaders and lower fps. I haven't figured out how to switch to high-quality shaders with the Omega stuff yet - God bless me :)

Other than that, I get "anomalies" with both drivers like dots in the sky, blinking triangles on heightfields and some extra dots of different sort, present since Cube (and on my previous Radeon 7500 too). But overall it's nothing serious, I fully enjoy the game and can't really complain as most of the time I don't see glitches at all.

Huh ? Did you noticed it create MANY bugs ?

Maybe those bugs are caused by the drivers?

nVidia is better. If you want to play better, get an nVidia GFX card.

#123: Re: ..

I got a nVidia GFX Card :p

And this is not caused by the drivers... it wasn't do that in the previous version of Sauer, plus some blocks, when you're viewing them FAR away, are... strange. Same thing with players models. Go in a newmap with SP Mode, make an ogro, go far away, zoom...

#129: Falling water texture problem

by Jc1991 on 10/14/2006 01:33

The texture used for falling water is gone, replaced with a falling grid, after I install this version. I uninstalled all previous versions before installing this one, so it\'s not a conflicting resources problem.

My video card is an NVIDIA GeForce4 4200 Go on a Dell Inspiron 8600 laptop, and I\'ve never had this problem before. (IE: Falling water has worked up to this version.)

#130: Re: Falling water texture problem

by Jc1991 on 10/14/2006 01:36

Oh, and I\'m running in 32 bit with a screen resolution of 1680 by 1050. My drivers are up all also up to date.

Any idea what the problem is? Any help is appreciated.

Yes this error is known, and has been fixed. It will be in the next version. (currently in the cvs too)

#133: capture dead bug

by CrazyTB on 10/14/2006 04:20

Found a bug. Steps to reproduce it:
1. Enter a capture game.
2. Go near some flag.
3. Wait until you get killed.
/* Now you are dead, on floor, near the flag. */
4. Type /team something to change your team.
*BUG* Now the flag near you is being captured... by you!

If you don't believe on dead people, I think you should change your mind. :P
