bullshit and wierd colors
« on: August 01, 2005, 08:10:07 am »

okay so i have finally re-installed Uqm 0.4 on my computer and at first it wouldnt work, so i used my modified version i made awhile back, now it works but with wierd colors...




now im just wondering why uqm wont work properly under Win XP home edition(english Grin)
when it worked under windows 2000 professional perfectly?

and i think its a sdl problem, maybe not.

im gonna keep playing just to make sure this isnt a one time thing.

All right. Standard checklist:
  • What colour depth are you using, 16 bit or 32 bit? If you haven't tried both, try the other one.
  • Are you using pure SDL or OpenGL? If you haven't tried both, try the other one.
  • Are you using an up-to-date graphics driver? If not, update it.

You're using an old binary, with the new content, or a new binary, with old content.
Either update the content, or the binary...

Oh. I get it..

You're using a modified binary, which is 0.3. It doesn't work with the new content which is 0.4
Get the 0.4 source, modify it again like you did for 0.3, and recompile it for 0.4 Then it works.

i did that and the same result

and just now i used the uqm loader to do a conflict run, and the same graphics thing happened but it was worse, everything was darker and contrasted

well i just got done installing the newest graphics drivers and Directx 9.0 and reinstalled uqm

still the same shit

messed around with the opengl and 32,24,16 options and still the same result, meh, i also have windows 98 on this comp it should work on there, now the only problem is testing uqm every time i modify the source Undecided
in theory i could test it, but it will look shitty Undecided

Reinstall it completely.
You're probably using an old (0.3) content .uqm file...

This is very odd, as UQM works fine for me in XP Home no matter what graphics settings I use. Are you quite sure you reinstalled UQM properly?

i did a nice fresh clean install with all the uqm 0.4 content, i did this in the beginning
i installed the content packages myself, as i usually do.

i'm just gonna use my win98 drive to play it and use winxp to test it
no point in trying to get anything to work on my computer, once its screwed up it will stayed screwed up, even if i re-installed windows Undecided

i really dont know how i fixed it, i just uninstalled every uqm component and re-installed the same way i did before to see if i made any mistakes then it worked.

 maybe it was just a couple faulty installations on my part. Smiley

See? Old content files..
So, if anyone reads this later on through the Search feature (whoa! someone's using it!), just reinstall UQM/update .UQM files or the UQM.EXE file....
