black walls

Postby alice32 » Sat Oct 20, 2007 3:17 pm

Hello,

I installed descent2 v1.2 cd.
Then I downloaded your d2x-xl v1.11.14.
The walls are black. I can see explosions, lasers, bots, and the cockpit. That's all.
I tried previous versions and on two different notebooks. One with a geforce 420, the other with a radeon x600 : always black walls.

Could you help me please ? i hope it's not hopeless. :cry:
Thank you

he said that the 1.11.03 version is ok
i found the 1.9 on google, and tried it so it should be ok, but walls are also black, so i dont think we have the same problem
i can always try the 1.11.03, but where can i find it ?

Do you have the Descent2 folder setup with the D2X-XL installation guide?

Also, can you post the contents of the d2x.ini file plus the d2x.log file here?


Thanks. :)

ok thank you now i see that i made a mistake during the installation procedure.

when i do it the fine way, i get an error : cannot find pig and/or ham files.
i did a Full d2 installation, created the directories (demos and missions were already there), moved all the files in the good one and deleted all but the exe/dll. after that, i copied the d2x-xl datas in the descent2-root directory, he asked me if i want to overwrite the directories, i said yes, and he overwrited and added his directory files to my descent2 directories.

at the end i have in my descent2 directory :
config
data
demos
missions
models
profiles
savegames
temp
textures

and bat, exe, dll files, + d2x-xl exes

Ok. Is problem solved? Was the salvation of the "black walls" the correct placement of the files and removing the *.pre?

Cause for me it didnt work. so i guess thread is not finished.

no, the problem is not solved
i dont know im lost, maybe (but i dont really believe in it) it depends of our d2 version.. for exemple i bought it twice, and the first time i bought it there wasnt the audio redbook. Perhaps there are others things/files that arent always copied on the disks, or the folders are not the same.. Now i only have one disk so i cant compare the structures.

Did you try the latest d2x-xl version? There are frequent updates.

Please tell me - you now have a workable version dont you? I mean - no black walls?

Guys, let it be known that Diedel believe what you guys report to him.

The trouble here is he's not able to reproduce the bug and is not able to locate this bug in the code (or whatever).

Some of you will have to wait it out until it's fixed.

Mean while, I suggest more detail reports to all bug reports!

Such as:

A full description of the report as to how and what you did that leads to the problem.

Your system Specs + Drivers. (what video card and drivers is important info!)

D2X-XL version number.

The D2X-XL folder setup you are using.

All D2X-XL Config settings within D2X-XL.

The contents of the d2x.ini and the d2x.log files.


These things help him more then just a pic and log file. ;)

Amen to Aus-RED's post.
BTW, i think that your problem is related to you Video Card.
I've got this same 'black wall' problem with an archaic Pentium III computer with integrated SiS OpenGL Chipset, but
on my Pentium 4 with GeForce 4MX card i play D2X-XL Perfectly ;)

Maybe the problem isn't D2X-XL, so check if you don't have a shitty Video Card (like my SiS one :P)


EDIT: I see you have a Geforce 420 and a Radeon x600. So it's maybe a problem with your D2X-XL installation Folder Structure as said before. Check that Descent2.hog,Descent2.ham and all 6 .PIG files are installed on the Data folder.
But maybe most important is to have the 6 (no less) PIG files.

Also, please check if you're gettin' this problem with '-renderpath 0' or '-renderpath 1'.
And BTW, try to make a logfile and post it here.
