Graphics fix for Matrox in 0.6.0?
« on: December 23, 2006, 05:09:17 am »

Was the fix for early Matrox OpenGL drivers included in the 0.6.0 default release? Or do I still have to compile it in for myself? Smiley

If it's not compiled in, I guess I'll need a NEW patch. The source files have obviously changed.

If this is Bug #914, apply this patch to the 0.6.0 source before remaking the patch or it will become near-instantly obsolete again.

The old patch should apply nicely to the current SVN code; there's no reason to create a new patch yet. I'll get back to this when Michael commits his revised graphics code.

No, which is why it's not in SVN yet -- we have enough trouble with bugs that are already present without doing sudden major changes to core systems.  It's just that the graphics backend in general has been due for rewriting since 0.3 (in order to make fixes to things like Bug #455 not be nightmares) but it's hasn't been a priority for quite a while.

Fixed in version 0.61. Yuptar, can you confirm that UQM 0.61 works for you?

Back... I don't check here very often. Smiley

So, you mean to say that the Matrox-specific fix is now standad in the latest UQM?

I see it's up to 0.6.2 now. Smiley I'll give it a try and let you know how it looks.
