Why do i see big black areas in town map?

Post by gunte » Fri Jun 04, 2010 12:03 pm

Hi i got a new computer windows 7 64 bit but i'm using the graphiccard (ATI radeon HD 4350 passive) from the old computer.

I have the newest driver for that graphic-card but now in the townmap i see big black areas on the ground (95% of the ground). It's very annoying. I tried a few other maps without any problems. If i in the ww options turn off (gl-driver opengl32) then it works but then the graphic is very bad and jerky with fps about 15-25. I tried with other settings without luck.

It worked nice when the grahiccard was in my old vista 32 bit computer. Vista was a good OS :-).

I could try using other olders drivers but don't know, hmm.

I just tried the workaround (enhanser) and it installs fine but won't open because it is not a nVidia card. This is only working for nVidia card.

As said my card worked fine with vista 32 bit. But i have to live with it i guess :(


Do you think it is possible someway to adjust some of the game variables?

This is the best map and annoying that i'm that much handicap by this confusing shadows.


Is it possible to make a new version of the map without this problem?

I got no problems on my new computer with Windows 7 - 64 bit and an ATI Radeon 5600 serie . I know it is no help , but I just wanna let you know . Maybe your card is to old for your new computerconfiguration . But I got no technical knowhow about computers , so dont take me serious :P

Here you can see 2 pictures show the problem:

As you see it is hard to aim the man because it is confusing with all the dark lines.

:(. Is it too much work to change the ground area in that map? Seems like a copy-paste task.

in basics :

1) everybody would have to have that new map
2) its not a copy and paste , its a shader issue ..better yet openGL issue

its an ATI bug ( they never supported openGL properly anyway ) if u remember the squarebox in the maps drawing out the lines of the map .. this is also an ATI bug ..

nvidia cards do not have this ..

however its a driver issue , i could try to find out which driver runs better but im rather busy fixing other issues ..

maybe HEWSTER can help but i doubt he's in the house :/

give me time plzzz :)

ok. But as said my card worked fine on the old 32 bit vista pc. Soo it must also have to do with the driver to windows 7 64 bit.

Perhaps i should look for an nvidia card instead. But other and new players may see the same and quit.

Could be this card Club 3D GeForce 8400GS (price about 40$.)

About a new map it isn't a problem to put it in the install and autodownload.

If you modificate the map i can insert the old card and test. No problem.
